Third of six shows in SF. Relaxed, open feeling throughout.  feels good and Bob takes his time before bringing in the melody. Bullock explores some sounds on the first solo. Bill gets into it with JT on the second one. JT flips the groove. Bob takes it out on guitar. JT provides a smooth transition into Beep Box. Maz takes a long solo over the outro. After a brief hello to the crowd, Bob speeds into Sharktank. Justin works the Prophet during a long solo over the outro vamp. It goes places. Shaun reins it back in on Thing of Gold. Jay bops over the bridge. Shaun sets up Big Ugly. Bullock and Bob take solos. Justin and Bill transition seamlessly into Ready Wednesday, which ends up being about as long as the whole rest of the set. Bill takes the first solo. The band locks into a serious groove and stays put for a while. They hand it off to JT, who gives a house music drum clinic. A really nice performance of this tune. For the encore, the band is joined by Magda Giannikou from Banda Magda for a version of Amour T’es La. Really nice show in all.
