Review by JonBaker

JonBaker Being that I drove over here back to back shows, (didn't drive the first night to Indy thank GOD) and only getting 8 hours sleep in the last two nights wasn't all that great. My wife came over with me since I had come solo the night before and she didn't want me to do that again. She's really not into Phish at all. She's seen them two other times and really doesn't like the atmosphere or the people at all. Anyway, being that I put a review on here before, I won't put much more into it. The first I loved. The four songs that stand out were Theme from the Bottom, Rift, Sample in a Jar and Sneaking Sally through the Alley which were all great. That was the first time seeing them do Sneaking Sally. I love that tune and wanted to hear ever since I heard it from a New Years Eve show from NY. Anyway, they ended the first set with Cavern. The first three songs of the second set did me well. DWD, The Squirming Coil and Makisupa Policeman were all great. Then came a weird one, Buffalo Bill. Then came another favorite of mine Run like an Antelope. At this point, my wife went out in the concourse area to take a break. Near the end, I also went out there which was a big mistake on my part. When I sat down, I was through. After three nights of Phish and driving, I was done. She said she was alright and I could go back in there, I said no. It had taken a toll on me at this point. I sat out there for the last two songs and slowly decided to walk to the vehicle. I love Slave to the Traffic Light and decided to hear all of it before heading out to the lot. I didn't worry about missing Waste when I heard them start the tune. I drank an ice tea out in the vehicle before heading home. I will never drive back and fourth between Dayton to Indianapolis ever again. It took a major toll on me. Hopefully in the future, I will stay in a hotel before driving back and fourth, or miss the shows all together. I said I wouldn't say that much more, and I did. Oh well, great three day run, and hope to do it again in the future, but staying at a hotel will be a must!
