I hadn't seen a show in 2010 due to being at school and just a bit busier than 2009 all around. So last night was my first show since the MSG run in 2009. And I had a blast. Sure, there wasn't too much exploring going on, but it was more about song selection for me last night. I was happy with just about every song that was played except for maybe Twist (which ended up being alright, slightly boring). My Soul was a great opener, giving Laura some of the blues she loves; Tube brought the funk. I am a huge Runaway Jim fan and was hoping I would get that one (along with Guelah and Crosseyed). The pause during Divided was deafening, eliciting a great smile from Trey. What else . . . Walk Away was a treat and Reba got as pretty as I hoped it would.
For the second set, I was hoping the Crosseyed went a bit more out there, but it was good to hear. And as everyone has already mentioned, the Simple turned out to be quite a strong version, including the "song" at the end. Sneakin > Makisupa was quite fun. And the Bowie was a bit messed up at the beginning, to my ears, and ended the set a tad early.
All in all, quite a fun night. Really happy I went, and thanks to Scotty B for letting me know about the re-release and Phil N. for getting an extra pair.
