E_Wolfe Lotta valid points already made reg'ing last night's show here, so I'll just throw this out there too:

I don't think any part of last night's effort was "phoned-in", or the band's collective heart wasn't in it.....they'z just tired, y'all. With a late start to tour this summer(because of FTW/GORDO-Tour), it may not be a ton of shows but its a lot packed into a shorter timespan. I mean, sh*t; I'm kinda beat just from COUCH TOUR! ;) (K, so I did go to AV1&2, I guess) -I mean, at least to me, I've felt like its been a lot "busier" this tour, like I'm up 'til the wee hours on nights I shouldn't be more frequently than usual...
For like a month there, there was phresh-phish to be had almost nightly, it seemed. Where they've played more two-day stops this year instead of three, they've also played a different venue the day previous each time(i.e. OH-AV-AV), not had any two-day breaks during the weekdays like most tours(at least once along the way, anyway), and have had more one-offs than any recent tour that at least I can recall. That's a lot of change from the previous 5-6 summers of touring, and a lot of moving around and living in buses when you're 50-ish. It ain't OLD, but fahk if I ain't-even-40 and DREAD hearing my lovely rugrats coming down the hall the morning after a show, regardless that i wasn't personally in-attendance ;)
-->Dead-Horse thoroughly beaten, I'll wrap by saying that this week bring's a much needed rest for band and phan alike, and we're all gonna be mad pumped come Friday(And besides, come-the-phuck-AWN; JUST that trifecta of Stash>Bowie>Possum alone is friggin tight, dudes)I'm usually bouncing off the walls w/ anticipation by like 3-4pm on show-nights. That's normal, right? ;)
Peace y'all
