Tough for me to even pick which night I enjoyed more. Golden Age remains the best jam so far, but last night had highlights throughout.

My thoughts exactly. 

I'd also like to point out the pretty sweet song selection for the first sets so far.

They have been choice! Have fun everybody!

wasn't as impressed as I was with the first night.

still a good show, but it felt a lil disjointed at times.....

There were plenty of joints.

Let us speak of how Mike is destroying anything that stands before this Roggae. His riffing on this track is immense.
The other guys do all right, too.

Yeah reggae was especially better than usual.
This gumbo is very nice. Good to see them jam it.
Love scents and subtle, one of mt faves.
Agreed on the mercury jam starting out a little disjointed. They took it somewhee

yeah - one of my clearest memories of this night is Mike's insanity during this Roggae. Perfect!
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Pretty neat tho that they achieved legit lift-off 2 nights in a row.  Been a while since that's happened, I feel like.

Umm, Nashville & Alpharetta?

Indeed, second set was all killer, no filler.  Sadly I was doing w00k laps on the concourse when they busted into Scents.   :tte:

My first Horse>Silent since 09 was the perfect closer to this intense set.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.
