Generally, I thought the first set was missing that certain something; I know others thought it was tight, but I found it mostly lacking that transcendence I'm looking for. Maybe it was just a question of song selection. But not to worry. The second set was transcendent from the word go, and the net was a great show and a super-fun night.

"Don't Want You No More" is always one of my favorite openers; Gregg snarls on the organ, Derek stings, then Warren tumbles into "Not My Cross to Bear." Warren squeals on "Statesboro Blues," Gregg vamps it up-- the three shows so far I've seen, Gregg has been more adventurous instrumentally than I've seen him in ages-- and Derek wanders over to see what all the hubbub is, peering over the plexiglass divider by the keyboard rig like he's inspecting the salad bar. Then Derek wails it out. Warren joins Gregg for the chorus vocals on "Rain," after which Derek makes it rain over descending Warren lines.

There's a brief front line huddle, then a collective chugga chugga into another rainy song, "Feel Like Breaking Up Somebody's Home" ("Laying around home alone on a rainy night like this...") Then "Revival;" Derek and Warren square off, ratchet up the heat; Derek plays bluesy slide runs at the top of the neck, then cool, sparse jazzy runs at the bottom, leading into a conversation with Warren. Then once more into the frenetic, and back out of the instrumental midsection into "People can you feel it." A musical highlight.

Gregg takes the band into "Come On In My Kitchen"-- the rain theme continuing ("well it's gonna be raining, outside...")-- while Butch and others are waving someone on from stage left; finally, after the song has begun, Luther Dickenson ambles out, straps on an ax over by Oteil, then brother Cody joins on washboard by Gregg. Gregg chugs along on keys as Warren peels off slide lines, then Luther follows with some slide dirt of his own. Cody by the way is one hell of a washboard player... Sax man Jay Collins joins for a "One Way Out" that is reminiscent of the all-hands-on-deck encore hot potato versions of "Southbound," then the Dickenson brothers leave the stage, Collins stays on, and the band assays "Hot 'Lanta." Now, having seen them do this three times last spring with a horn on stage, I know that they're going to bring the song to a close, and then emerge into "Watchtower." On which, Collins blows a dark, hard, hot solo, then Warren sings cool purple vocals. Derek rides the waves; then the waves crash hard against the shore, into more cool cool vocals. Then back out the rabbit hole into "Hot 'Lanta;" Butch leads a brief drum solo interlude hard into set close. "Watchtower," inevitably, is another highlight.

In my notebook it says, "solid workmanlike set; not much transcendence." I needn't have fretted. Turns out they were saving it up.

The second set opens with "Melissa," so Greg on acoustic, no Derek. Warren just keeps on going, round and round and round on the exit solo. Sublime. "Low Down Dirty Mean" is the big ass bumpa dumpa. Then "Blue Sky" takes everything up a notch, transcendence-wise, and we pretty much stay there the rest of the night. Derek takes a fat-noted solo, then falls finally into the "Blue Sky" sunshine. Then the transition harmony licks, which are just glorious. Warren fills the space with tone, then goes crunchy. The challenge for the guitarists on this song now is, how long can they stay away from the sticky, gooey, familiar sunny licks; the longer they do so, the greater the tensi
