|2017-07-14||Chicago, IL||13:42||Impressive debut. The band quickly clicks to create a chill groove, with Trey working a warm tone to solo atop steady bass, scattershot drumming, and excellent Page-propelled atmospherics. This, then, into extended trilling, which Trey distorts before breaking to assume a clean, bright line, which builds - to break - back into the jam's pulsing, Floyd-like vibe. Excellent.|
|2018-07-31||Del Valle, TX||18:46||Effects-laden grime coasts on the tail end of a type I jam. Mike leads a charge to D, which goes ignored at first, but this lays the bedrock for a patient and breathtakingly happy shift towards bliss territory roughly halfway through the jam as Page and then Trey finally follow. A hose jam builds from the ether thanks to whale call and a foundational groove from Mike, eventually reaching a sustained peak with multiple releases of tension in a shower of joy over Everything that is Right with the universe. A final chorus and then dissonant noise paves the way for a > "Disease".|
|2018-08-08||Camden, NJ||16:13||A multi-passage monstrosity grows its sea legs out of the Delaware River as the band walks this "Everything's Right" around the corner and back. Up top, dark minor-mode jamming is propelled thanks to Page' synth and stellar bass work from Mike; this eventually paves the path to a happy and fluid bliss jam. A second key change first heads for grimy Leslie-driven plinko, until Trey steps up with whale call and a second prominent bliss peak unfolds thanks to Fish's dynamic improvisation. An abrupt return to the final chorus winds down to close out the tune and, in turn, the set.|
|2018-10-16||Albany, NY||13:03||Retains an understated intensity throughout and after 7:30 takes on a graceful, ethereal feel, coalescing at 9:30 with a truly beautiful sequence of soaring guitar and deep impact bass. Around 11:30, a Page-led groove is introduced which brings things to a close with a slick -> "Cities".|
|2018-10-23||Nashville, TN||12:24||A part of a set-long "Mike's Groove." No time is wasted before the bands jumps into a pulsing, driving jam. All four members seem to function as a single unit. Around 8:00, Mike and Trey lock in on a riff together that takes the jam to a new level. By the 10:10 mark, the jam slips back to more familiar "ER" territory. > into "Set Your Soul Free."|
|2018-10-28||Rosemont, IL||14:13||The band walks on stage and opens with a line drive double to deep left center field. The classic fall '18 whale call bliss sound pops up halfway through jam. One-dimensional, but the dimension is intense. The triumphant and cathartic peak swells and overwhelms, eventually stumbling back to the bridge refrain.|
|2018-12-30||New York, NY||15:30||Subtle, magisterial, and grand, the jam, bright as DMT (if, in actuality, colored with "WTU?" DNA), slowly builds, gently rising more than gaining intensity, the band riding Trey's wave of sound which crests to swell to become play notably restrained and pretty. This, then, into a perfect > for "Plasma."|
|2019-06-14||Manchester, TN||14:04||A hidden gem in a stand-alone festival set. Buried 9 minutes in is an abrupt but welcome left turn to blissier grooves, and multiple pleasant and sizable peaks unfold on the back of Mike's rolling bass. At 11:20, a thematic tone poem introduced by Trey builds up to a sustain-drenched peak.|
|2019-12-01||Uniondale, NY||14:30||A "Call to the Post" tease from Trey before the song begins indicates he's ready and raring to go. Swirling synth play from Page and heavy effects from Trey highlight this cool jam; Mike and Fish lay down a slick groove to let their bandmates shine. There's a menacing end to the jam before it > into "Down With Disease."|
|2020-02-23||Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico||18:05||Towards the beginning of the jam, Trey sustains a note, which Page takes as a cue to introduce soaring harmonic counterpoint, including a hint to a major mode shift; this wrangles back to the "Everything's Right" theme. 11:30 sees Trey and Mike introduce a new chord vamp, and this yields a patient and smooth segue into major key bliss jamming by 13:45. Page builds with Fish's, and Trey goes whale call while building off of Mike's harmonic counterpoint. A pleasant feedback- and piano-dominated peak builds, climaxes, morphs, and finally reaches a graceful conclusion at 17:45.|
