Favorite head fake

Favorite head-fake was 11/12/16 at The Fox in Oakland. After an incredible 2015 show with a massive second set-opening China > Rider > Shakedown sequence, in the first set of the 2016 show, Cumberland careened into Shakedown. The opening chords sent the crowd into a frenzy, but I was a little surprised they’d play Shakedown twice in two sets in the same venue … but before I could finish that thought, they swerved into a sick Help > Slip > Music Never Stopped! That Slipknot! in particular is ridiculous.

8/8/15 at Arise Festival in CO has New Speedway Boogie all teed up coming out of a sick The Eleven — but then all of a sudden they’re singing something else!

Beginning of 3/24/16 @ Brooklyn Bowl is pretty epic.
