I can sum this show in one word: Energy.

The thing about this show is, where the night before is crystallized in my memory banks, this one is just a blur. I didn’t really have a good time at this show, but that’s just me. I also didn’t really have a good time at the Clifford Ball. Goes to show you how much your own personal headspace is often more important than the playing when it comes to enjoying a show.

Having a blast listening to this one today with friends old and new. That’s all I’ve got.

Thanks for reading and Happy New Year!
