Couch Tour Recap: MPP #2 Sunday Sunday
by Pauly

Never miss a Sunday show, eh? Second night at MPP. I was rocking out on couch tour courtesy of a crisp stream (thanks to "telephish" and Hood Streams). First set was the standard greatest hits with 10 songs spread out over 80 minutes with a sick Stash, while the second set was a 7-song beast anchored by YEM.

The First Tube opener is one of fastest ways to inject a shit ton of energy into the crowd from the get go. First Tube Roids. Moma funk continued the groove. NICU is a perfect summer song. Crowd was into Roses. Trey wanked off in Chalkdust. Silky smooth key changes in Stash, plus Trey slayed the mofo-dragon in the Stash jam. Really got to enjoy CK5's lights during outro. I'm very critical of Stash the last few years (saw too many phoned-in or lazy peaks in previous versions), but tonight's Stash delivered on all fronts. I can't wait to re-listen. Best pat of Scent was when Fish went all Mickey Hart on us and he played with his new gizmo -- an electric marimba. Amazing delicious jam out of Ice. Funk-fusion came out of nowhere. Tube popped up to continue the funky mood. Short, as per usual. Band felt frisky going into Antelope. Crowd was jacked. You could hear that frenetic energy through the stream. They were ready to explode.

We lost a perfect feed (crisp audio and video) for the second set and had to settle on just audio. Still lucky to hear it. Set 2 opened with Golden Age, which smoothly moved into Twist territory. Patient jamming all night. Trey sat back and let songs evolve instead of anxiously yanking the ripcord whenever he got antsy. First four songs clocked in around 10 minutes each. Light matriculated into a post-modern afro-funk stop-start jam over a couple minutes before delving into Boogie On. Avoided a down shift into a slower tune and go an uptempo Julius instead (typically this was the part of the show when Fish needed a breather and Trey got to sing a ballad). Monstah YEM closed the 7-song set, with an angry monks eating monkeys vocal jam. Rocking Loving Cup encore.

MPP run came to a close with another big second set. The boys head southbound to Atlanta for their only interlude into southern waters before the party migrates to Chicago for a three-night rager.
