This week, Tanya, Sam, Scott, and I kick off the first of our summer tour reviews, starting with Bethel Woods. Luckily, 3/4 of the panel attended this one, thus being able to offer our thoughts at the time and then on second listen. Without spoiling too much, we all agreed that the first two nights were very solid, and while the third wasn’t horrible, it left a little to be desired. As usual, we had a tough time choosing clips, since there were many tasty nuggets, especially in the first sets of the first two nights. A lot of ground was covered in this hour long episode, discussing such topics as “meltdown jams” and “plinko”. And while everyone hates when we agree, there is not much debate about how this tour opener ranks. Be sure to listen all the way through and post your comments below. Our next episode is scheduled for Tuesday, 6/7/11, to discuss the PNC shows.
Thanks for listening,
PS: For the entirety of Summer Tour ’11, Type II Cast will review every show. We hope to get those reviews recorded within a week or two of the performance. We will not record on the normal Tuesday night schedule during this time. Stay tuned to twitter or Facebook or subscribe in iTunes in order to catch new episodes.
