It was good. Real good. There were moments during this show that were among the most intense experiences I've ever had: food, sex, music or drugs -- this was up there. Thanks guys for a seriously amazing trip. Last night I experienced physical, emotional, and spatial sensations I had never before encountered, and I was straight sober. Didn't smoke or even drink. I had to fight back tears during the first tune (I Need To Know). I've listened to that tune for many years now, during some intense times of my life. Hearing it live was phenomenal. I had chills and goosebumps envelope my entire body to the point that I felt like I was floating and vibrating. And they closed the first set with one of my favorite tunes ever: Gama Band. That groove is killing!!
The second set started off a little slower. Then at the end of the 2nd or 3rd tune they dropped into this UNREAL outro groove in 3/4 and I got insane chills through my entire body again. Every inch of my flesh was tingling and vibrating. I got intense butterflies in my stomach, the way you do before you're going to do something really intense... it was wild and I have no explanation for it. I was just in another universe. The groove and vibe were both so intense.
They closed the 2nd set with Star of Jupiter (aka Bird of Prey). This tune is so gnarly! Before the head out, Kurt and Eric played their ostinato licks behind Faulkner while he CRUSHED the entire place. One of the nastiest, fiercest drums solos I've heard in my life. I was sitting about 3 feet away from him, honestly kind of concerned that I might get hit in the face if he lost a stick. I could just listen to that kid comp swing by himself for hours, his feel is so great. Anyone who gets to see this group is in for a treat.
