Despite starting out with a snappy Minglewood into an evocative Sugaree, the first set is a bit uneven, primarily because of the song selection. Still, the tunes are well played and the vocals are crisp. By the time they get to the Man Smart, Woman Smarter set closer, it is clear that some magic could be in the air. 

The second set certainly delivers on the potential evident in the first set. From the first notes of Scarlet to the very end of Sugar Mags, the Dead tear it up. And, in contrast to the first set, it would be hard to construct a more balanced and fluid setlist.
