Pretty tight... after the break, they were high... the drummer Skeeto with a heavy funk slap vibe... he did some nice jamming... I did like that Zeppelin tune... I was saying it was cool that it took Trey to get me into an obscure Zep tune that I didn't know well... less familiar with that double album... coolest album art ever... apartment building with cutouts.... images inside of windows... Zeps graphics were awesome... Skeeto did a decent Bonham flo... he kinda jazzed it up... he is like a funky Jazz dude getting ROCKED out... killer timing ... and he hits the rolls real hard and tight... I was impressed... he kept the simple Ringo beats but, he had a lot of FLARE and FEEL to his beats... its was cool for me to see him play the drums on Drifting... I could see he was out in front of the beat... when Trey came back into the verse he played the beat right with the verse lyrics... I was seeing how he did the drum parts on the arrangement.
I thought it was pretty rockin... overall, it seems Trey is having a good time... like Pauly said, Trey seems to be more in his own dominion so to speak... perhaps that freedom from the PHISH arrangements, is allowing him to explore his guitar roots... he was really cooking... on that Sand at the end of that tune in the jam part... the version of Night Speaks to a Woman was supercharged with the chick singer (Jen Hartswick)... seemingly, it was a more solid version than the one they did the Friday night... up until they played It Makes No Difference by the Band, I was thinking the frist night was better, but, I was psyched about the Black Dog with the chick singer... that kicked my BUTT... I was also psyched about seeing Waste with Gordon on bass... today I started thinking of how ironic it wuz that they did the Wolfmans Brother into I am the Walrus because Trey mentioned in Coventry that PAUL MCCARTNEY was the Walrus and FISHMAN was the Wolfmans Brother... and then Trey does both tunes almost in HOMAGE!!!
TREY is defineately a PHREAK...
I thought some of the other less familiar tunes were pretty damn awesome and I am psyched Pauly burned a copy of 2 sets of that show from Tennessee. The sound quality is such that I can really analyze the drum parts pretty well... that drummer SKEETO is seriously an awesome drummer... I wasreally impressed... the Black Dogdrum part was FLAWLESS.... his timeing and FILLS are beyond IMPRESSIVE... I could learn a thing or two from watching that dude... beyond the music which i felt was terrific, the crowd was pretty cool too... we were hangin with some youngsters... but the vibe seemed hip. kinda like a later PHISH crowd... I wasn't that into the crowded general admission on the FLOOR without SEATING... that was just a slight nightmare... they shoulda had GA but with seating and open dancing areas... that woulda been better.... I liked being up on the balcony. Perhaps it would be good if Trey had those VIDEO screens they have at those large stadium shows... I would liked to have seen things UP CLOSE... thats all.
