Back at the little beach bar known as Belly Up. So nice to play in a small room again. Lots of stretching in this set. GØ gets long solos from Maz, Bill, and Bob. Nate transitions into Semente. Justin takes a trumpet solo. Jamison steps out vocally on Gemini. Shaun brings it down on Kronos and organ. Grown Folks gets an open bass intro. Bullock milks the first solo section. Bob rips over the outro. Shaun drives the bus on Thing of Gold and ends with an organ mash-up of America, The Beautiful and D’Angelo’s The Root. Bill takes the bait and goes right into Ready Wednesday. Jamison lays down 2 and 4. Justin dials up a sound on the Prophet and the band plays with bass drops. Bill takes it out. Encore is Big Ugly. Bullock takes an ambient solo. Bob takes one on guitar. Shaun goes choir director and gets the whole audience to sing leading tones. Funny, very informal vibe throughout the set. Lots of fun.
