Hot on the heels of the first (and very well received) Trey Anstasio & Classic TAB show in Brooklyn, the band was back together again on Sunday for one set at the first All Points West Music & Arts Festival at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ.
As expected, the show didn't match the energy or intimacy of Classic TAB's warm-up show in Brooklyn, but Trey still managed to deliver some “dirty wah” and “nasty solos” at the APW Fest according to the fine folks @glidemag.
An all killer no filler affair where the band didn’t take many chances, but allowed Trey to rip some incredibly fast and melodic solos.

Reviews of Trey Anastasio & Classic TAB at All Points West Festival
Mr. Miner: All Points In Good Directions
“Definitely a step down the right path, Trey pleased the crowd within the limits of a 60-minute festival slot. While not delving very deep, his playing was as precise and sharp as in Brooklyn and his enthusiasm was certainly all there.”
Hidden Track: Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB @ All Points West in Jersey City: Setlist and Review
“Trey Anastasio’s Classic TAB delivered another solid performance this evening at the All Points West festival in Jersey City… Each song the quartet tackled were fan favorites and allow ample dance time.”
GOUGEaway: Trey was ON FIRE tonight!
“All in all it was a good show for a 75 minute set. The quality of the Jibboo and the Mr. Completely were easily on par with any thing from Brooklyn, and I honestly believe the Mr. Completely was way better.”
