Encore: Phil’s Farm > Cocaine**** > Phil’s Farm

*With Listen to the Music (Doobie Brothers) teases

***With Hajimemashite fakeout
****First time played in full since 8/28/13 (619 show gap)

Streaming this show. That first set was pretty rough. None of the improv really clicked, and no jam in Cut Off essentially means 4 improvless songs in a row there in the middle. I hope Cut Off starts showing up more and they start jamming it again. The highlight was probably #5 which got a decent bounceback going.

No jam in Breaker? Usually they throw in a short jam there.

It was short and pretty type 1, although it was a solid version of Breaker. I’m glad that one has become a regular.

I missed half of Higgins but that was a horrendously bad first set IMO. The #5 jam did absolutely nothing and SS was looking good but quickly abandoned. Push & Pull Breaker Cut Off Police and Similar Skin is just an abysmal stretch for my tastes.

Did anyone else just see Bob Ross combing the hair of the Bob Ross in front of him on the screen behind them? :fire:

Man, I haven’t been this salty in awhile. If I hadn’t committed to doing the set thread I’d be on my way to sleep right now :slight_smile: This is just rough. I may have been a bit liberal calling a Haji fakeout, but there was definitely something there. Ah well, I’m sure at least one of the next two nights will be great.

Edit: OK, that Plunger was alright. Bounceback with two good sections that never really quite came together, but they were two good sections (one with an uplifting progression and a funk/dancy pattern). That helped. Plunger always seems to help lately.

That improvised verse from Jake was hard to watch lol

Whatever. I’m only streaming for Andy on the castanets anyway. Double Bob Ross is just a plus

I’m not hearing any Doobie Brothers teases in kitchen, but I think I’m hearing some other tease at 9:55 (again pretty sure not doobie)…regardless there’s definitely a Can’t You See tease in breaker (see guide). I was amped to hear them bring it back in Resolution for an extended jam.

edit: I agree there’s a Haj fakeout in Upward.

Is that Draconian in Plunger at 5 minutes in and again 9 minutes in?

I am hearing more of a Not Fade Away tease than any Doobie Brothers. 9:52
Almost Inspector Gadget tease in Resolution.

Totally agreed on the Not Fade Away tease. Definitely the Grateful Dead/Stones version more than the Buddy Holly original.

Cocaine wasn’t in full, fwiw; just two verses (not three).
