It gets harder and harder to write reviews after all the shows I've been going to. All the shows combine they melt into a dream! I am however so grateful I have the chance to be able to see all the shows I have!

Chicago was nice. Right out the gate with HCS. I seriously thought we were gonna get that one in Michigan. The MS HalfStep was great and I LOVED LOVED LOVED the Cumberland. I could get that song at every show and be happy! They jam it sooo good and so upbeat and fast I dont think anyone can hold still during that one! The first set was a bit short but the jamming they did was amazing! I dont think I've seen a Furthur show yet where they seem to jam out every song! It was an extra nice surprise! Then Stranger to open the 2nd set I knew we were in a for a long crazy crazy night! It was awesome! They went into Truckin and I was hoping for my Smokestack afterwards but it didn't happen. The Viola was different then I've heard. Well the first two verses anyways. They are starting to take that song somewhere new each time I hear it I'm sooo glad to hear the sound going FURTHUR! Watchtower and Dew were ones I was really excited to get live. The dew was incredible! John on his new guitar giving it his all. CHILLS CHILLS CHILLS! I'm still feeling them this second I'm thinking about it! And I got two shows where they ended the second set with Throwing Stones. I guess I'm just gonna have to get use to it being a closer. And of course Attics was beautiful!!!

The thing that will stand out to me the most about this show was the spaced out jamming they did! Thats the stuff I love!! I recommend this one for a listen!

How's that review for ya STIW?!
Dreams are lies...it's the dreaming that's real!!!!

Just got my download from tuesday. We missed the first 3 tunes somehow. Had a great time with my crew and everyone I met there. Thanks for all the venue info. Would like to check out the streams for other shows sometime.

Not reading good things about Truckin' > Viola Lee Blues > Mountains of the Moon. That's too bad. Viola in Chicago is beyond trite at this point, but I like that grouping. Mountains of the Moon is a song this band can take to other worlds.
I'm not certain where I read such nonsense, but I believe it was the PhilZone. Some talk of messiness and pushing a square into a circle slot. I finally had a chance to hear it. The stop-dime transition from Truckin' into Viola was sharp. The triptych melding was fine, fine work. Mountains wasn't their best version, but it was a nice one indeed. Folks are calling that "new" Viola jam to be Cumberland-like, but I'm hearing something else. Right on the tip of my tongue, too. Synaptic misfires and mild frustration as I try to pin it down. It'll come to me when I'm not thinking about it; like seeing a familiar face and not being able to place it until the struggle has been forgotten.

and this is a nice sounding recording (too bad the 1st set escaped them):

You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

It's dead and over when close enough is good enough.

Grateful Dead's version of Maggie's Farm, perhaps?

If you stumble, make it part of the dance.

I judt relistened to the show and cought that cumberland-esque jam, but another one that almost got by me was in the Mountains of the Moon there was a jam that sounded a lot like Low Spark and I think that would be a cool breakout.
