Review by s1177375

s1177375 Sneaking was the only highlight to me. Listen to night 1. I went to the wrong night . . i am mildly upset but w a YEM (a decent but not stand out 1) and a GREAT Slave and great Light I have to say the Rolling Stones song is my favorite song by them. . not jumping jack flash or loving cup i really like that song and hate the Stones so that is saying something. So I got a ticket stub oh yes. . when u cant figure out what to play they see us w stubs in our hands and kick it into ACDC Bag style and get the show on the road. . oh yes. It was a FUNK night. Not a great funk night but a good one. It was like 12-29 w Run Antelope and the Set 2 amazing YEM but this YEM was just not good. . it is YEM so it is awesome but FOR YEM it sucked in relation in comparison. Undermind. . No Men. . Stash was even funky sorta and Possum w kinda funky . . YEM of course always is w some nice antics and Sneaking was the best part of the night for me but too little too late like 1 critic said. So TRUE dude. And the encore sucked almost as bad as my 2 worst encores over top this one and that was 11-29-03 Friday (and this coming from a guy uy unlike most fans i actually love the composed Guitar SOLO jam from 4 minutes on. The lyrical part is a trainwreck but on purpose according to Trey cause that is what the songs lyrics are about so it fits . . but we dont have to like it as fans lol still. So yeah that bummer of an ending (Give me a 12-28-03 (STELLAR FRIDAY w better placement mid set - If there must be one - which unlike Show of LIfe which is great as an encore if perfectly played - Friday needs to be in the middle like my 2nd fav show behind 10-29-13 (Reba and 20 Yrs Later and DWD were badass) - - DWD was only better at 2-21-03 BEST DWD EVER for me that I SAW. . .of course Rochester 12-11-97 was better and even had a reprise but i was not there to witness it being better. So yeah the Friday and Secret Smile 7-30-03 total bummer ending but what a great show though. 3rd favorite show i ever got to see was actually in 03. Hell 2 of them were in 03. 2003 was not all total shit. Listen to 2-22s Gin (OUT OF THIS WORLD) and the Piper-Weekapaug alligator mouth had me shitting my pants after i thought they just were gonna do a very rare just Mikes like late 80s to early 90s like 1993 Mikes. But I was so happily surprised. I was NOT surprised tonight by anything except another shit encore (not a bad jam but just mediocre) I wanted a Curtain With or a Esther Horse>Silent in the Morning>Sand encore woulda been tight. THey had 11 min left till curfew but Sand would not have fit. . maybe a silent into Bold as Love . I am so happy listening back to this great Simple Opener . . a SIMPLE sandwich from MPP1 to Magnaball night 1. . strange opener. . I am digging the strange setlists. Give us an Esther opener or a Lizards or MFMF or PYITE but those 2 are more expected. . maybe a Sloth scritch OH YES. . .love and peace. 8-1 is all about FUNK. . worth hearing but not worth the 170 dollars i spent on a pavillion ticket thru stubhub . . what a waste of good money arggggggggggg. . lawn next time for sure cause i never know when they will kickass and when they will just have a groovy funky laid back night all over the place like 8-16. A woman right after BDTNL asked me for a cig lighter and then how i liked the show and all i could think of in the moment was . . ummmm. . it was just all over the place. I dont know what i thought of that crap. It was all very well played but that does not cut it. I dont want well played studio phish i was ragers for 170 bucks and i got a 17 dollar 2004 level show. A 6-19-04 NOT QUITE but it was as good as 6-17 which was just kinda all over the place. Not as bad as Brooklyns night 2 crap w Jay lol and not as bad as P Funk or the BB King crap show but it was in there w the 2003-04 level crappier stuff. Give me 6-19-04 and 8-12-04 (Great show and I thought it would be my last ever - I CRIED hard leaving Camden cause I was so mad and sad and happy it was so wierd) and give me most of 2003 over this show that is how all over hte map this closer was. Definitely not a 3-1-03 or 8-16-09 granted overrated for the Harpua JON and the Chomper action. . actually underrated i take that back the show got bad reviews maybe it was all just a Harpua making it "seem" like a stellar show. . .I gotta go back and listen to 8-16 again but i think i rest my case. . not a good show and all over the place 2 set tour ender w lots of buildup lots of promise w that great Golgi Undermind Julius opener but not a great night. Bowie and Nothing were the highlights behind the clear winner SALLY my girl funky little bitch that she is . . coulda used that song after and then a Run LIke a Antelope into Dog Log INTO Runaway Jim to make it an all animal scritch w a Dog Stole Things into SLoth encore . . but i never get what i want but if i try sometimes i got what i needed in YEM and DWD and Light I LOVE the song LIGHT about conquering addiction that is so INSPIRING
