07/06/2005 The Tea Party, Woke Up In Vegas, Deep Water Daze (Rochester, NY @ Water Street Music Hall)

I made my way down to Water Street from work, and met up with Sara and her friend Kate. The first openers were a duo called Deep Water Daze, just a singer and acoustic guitarist. They were ok, something to pass the time really. Next up was a Buffalo band called Woke Up In Vegas. They reminded me of Greenwheel a little bit, with their melody and hard rock sound. The singer was decent, he could really belt out the tunes. After their set was up, it was time for Tea. Returning to Rochester for the first time since August of 2002, they still sounded great, as always. But save for the 4 new songs off of Seven Circles, it was the same setlist, as always. Therein lies my only pet peeve with this band, setlist selection. They have seven albums… PLAY SOME DIFFERENT SONGS!! Roughly in order, last night it was: Overload,
Writing’s On the Wall (which is much better live!), Lullaby, Fire In The Head, Psychopomp, Stargazer, Oceans, Zahira/Halcyon Days, Heaven Coming Down (All Along the Watchtower), Release, Psychopomp, and Temptation. And then the encore was The Messenger, Save Me w/ bow solo, Winter Solstice/Sister Awake/Paint it Black. I almost hate complaining, because they always sound great. But there’s just something unfulfilling about seeing almost the exact same setlist every time.
