Night three began with Rollover, yet another song about Mother Nature, which seemed to be elucidating a theme that had begun on night one and explicated on night two. Rollover led without finish into Colliding, a song which has grown on me more and more since it was first introduced in the fall. Drive was next, a song which is rarely played anymore since its introduction in 2005, co-written by John Perry Barlow and finding each verse sung by a different member of the band. By the time this song was ending, rains had come once again, not in a downpour as the night before, but a soft, gentle steady rain that continued for the rest of the show. Keith Moseley then led his creatively versed song Look at Where We Are, followed by Kyle’s contemplative song Piece of Mine, complete with Kyle’s well-known growl as he sang his lyrics. Las Vegas was to follow, with Billy’s silly lyrics offsetting the psychedelic melodies and strangely arranged changes. The new song BollyMunster caused the whole crowd to wriggle and squirm to the addictive beat of Jason’s percussion and Kang’s fiddle in the chilly rain.
