Reba did not have the whistling ending. Antelope included a reference to Bob Weaver instead of Marco Esquandolas.

Review by Mikesgroover

Mikesgroover Not much really distinguishes this show, played on the final week before the first hiatus. It's worth noting that Trey once mentioned that the band didn't sleep between Vegas and Shoreline, and the result of that can be seen in shows like this one. The band sounds tired and is a bit sloppy. While the setlist shows jamming potential, nothing really makes its way into unique territory.

It's Ice contains a very slow, foreboding, ambient jam section that's quite dark for it's placement as the second song of the first set. Reba isn't bad, but isn't memorable either and the same can be said for the Antelope.

The final version of Rock and Roll played before the hiatus is a joyous excursion that builds to a furious climax. A nice Jibboo is followed by a sloppy Bug.
The Hood jam has some moments of machine gun-esque Trey playing, but is hardly patient.

Absent any memorable moments, aside from the dark Ice, this night is not worth seeking out.

Review by The__Van

The__Van I've been dreading this one. Not a single jam chart mention and the longest song on the list is Reba at just over 14 minutes. Damn, will there be anything interesting about this show? After listening though I do have some thoughts. I think this is it. This is the show when it hit them that they were about to be done for who knows how long. 17 years of near relentless touring and making albums was about to come to an end.

Moma starts the show energetically enough but it's decidedly not one of the big '00 Momas. It's Ice comes in fairly well played with a spacey middle section and nothing else. Bouncing comes and goes as usual. Funky Bitch also another standard type 1 version with nary a flair. Then we come to Reba. In the midst of the jam I think is when they realize this is probably the last time they'll be playing song for God knows how long. The gradually becomes more and more intense but has a small bit of a foreboding energy to it. But the jam cuts off before the real peak comes. I could feel they were holding back something by the end. Dog Faced Boy serves as a quick pallet cleanser. Perhaps appropriately it's one of their few outright sad songs. Antelope starts up next to bring the set to a close and right from the start of the jam the mood has shifted. Fish lays down a beat with a sense of purpose that I haven’t heard from him yet this tour. Trey, Mike, and Page interweave a jam that is at once slightly ominous yet with some sunshine. The subtle note choices really drive it home for me.

Rock & Roll opens the 2nd set without the foreboding of Antelope but also doesn’t have much going for it. They pull out early and start laying down ambient effects as an intro to 2001. The one has a few moments of interplay between Trey and Fish but for most part is fairly average. Seems like at this point they’re still searching for something to really grab on to. Why they chose Sample to play next is anyone’s guess. It’s very average. Will Gotta Jibboo be where the set really takes off? No. But it is a very well played version. Would probably be more recognized if this was played in the first set, but we’re in the 3rd quarter here with basically nothing to write home about. A cool buildup lick to end the jam doesn’t cut it here. Bug tells me they’ve given up on this set... and yet Trey really goes after it with this solo. Hard. There’s some real passion in his playing. Almost like an apology for the rest of the show. I’m serious they play the shit out of this Bug. Listen to it. After that, does Hood have anything to offer? Besides the standard good Hood always gives, Trey comes up with some very pretty fluttery lines and goes after the peak like it’s his job, heh heh. I really feel him going after this peak just like with Bug. Cavern brings the house down one last time. Loving Cup gives just a little bit more.

Not a great show by any means. Not even a good show honestly. But I recommend the Antelope if you’re curious and surprisingly, the Bug too.

Review by spreaditround

spreaditround I spent the days between Phoenix at Chula Vista at Joshua Tree National Park girding myself for the final four shows and generally getting recharged. SET 1: The Moma Dance: Solid start, can’t go wrong with this tune opening a show. >

It's Ice: The jam is very spacey, dark, and intense. Given the right circumstances, this could put you on the moon. Check it out… >

Bouncing Around the Room > Funky Bitch: Standard.

Reba: This version is actually pretty good. What’s interesting though, as Trey is shredding away – listen to Page. He sounds half asleep at the switch. Very telling. This one doesn’t have a true traditional Reba peak.

Dog Faced Boy: Standard.

Run Like an Antelope: Again, listen to Page in the intro. Just barely there, sleepwalking. When it’s all said and done though, this Antelope does smoke. “Been you to have any spliff, man?”

First set summary: Not much here to sink your teeth into. It’s a shame because I thought they would come out guns blazing after having two days off, but it was not to be. Reba and Antelope are good but nothing I would revisit even though I attended. Very, very short set – 59:30. Pretty weak, I mean they just had two days off for crying out loud and they have four shows left? I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall with the band pre-show and at setbreak to see what all was going down.

SET 2: Rock and Roll: Straight ahead rager, good out of the gates, everybody is on their feet and dancing >

Also Sprach Zarathustra: Nice groove fest, I really enjoyed this – nice and lengthy >

Sample in a Jar: Why?

Gotta Jibboo: Very solid jam. Never gets outside of its structure but in fine all the same.

Bug: I know many likely were not digging this placement, but I was not one of them. I am a fan of this tune, always have been and always will be. This one truly rips, and Trey gives it what for. This version has extra juice. >

Harry Hood: Trey gives this a good going over but seems to suffer a bit from too many ideas. Felt like he should have stuck with one and stomped on that gas pedal. Still a good version. >

Cavern: Standard

ENCORE: Loving Cup: Standard

Second set summary: Another short set clocking in at 65 minutes with a 7:42 encore. Page did wake up for this set, by the way. Outside of Sample, this is not a bad set. But it is no better than average either. The only thing that I would revisit would be Bug. With just two songs that have replay value for me, I would rate this as a 3.0 out of 5. This is one of the weaker 1.0 shows that I saw. On to Irvine…
