First time in Boulder in over half a decade. Sold-out show in a beautiful old theater. Things come out funky with Grown Folks. Bullock takes his time on tenor. Shaun closes it out. Beep Box is mellow. The solo section stretches under Maz. Tarova gets a killer guitar solo from Mark. He and Jamison are left alone for a while. Shaun lights it up on Gemini after a very interesting open vamp. Jamison leads vocally. Justin takes an amazing solo on Prophet over the outro vamp in Sharktank. Definitely my favorite moment of the night. Shaun goads the audience into singing on Thing of Gold. Maz blows over the bridge. Nate sets up Tio Macaco beautifully. He and Jamison cook at the end. Big Ugly is patient and strong. Bullock and Mark solo. Jefe is the encore. Shaun does his thing on talkbox, then Bill grooves on Rhodes over what’s normally a percussion solo. The band hits a deep pocket after a keyboard break. Justin calls in a Headhunters quote. Shaun won’t let it go. Nice party set.
