david_bowie Took advantage of the free live stream and watched with my dad, who had never seen phish before. He loves live music so of course he was super impressed. The band's music has certainly become more approachable over time. I am not one of those who longs to return to "the good old days." More than happy to hear a bunch of hits in the first half before my buzz kicks in and I am taken for a ride in the second half.

After opening with a completely appropriate and yet typically forgettable TAB song, the Peaches into Free, Roggae, and the Jim closer make for a very enjoyable set 1. Set 2 + the Coil encore are definitely worth a listen in their entirety. Killer Wombat on the loose! This pleasant surprise had me off the couch moovin and groovin.

CK5 in the house!!!! Love the new setup. Trippy ass stars.

Bottom line: this did not feel like a warm up show. It rekindled my hopes for MSG. Thinking now I should probably hold onto my 8/1 tickets (another Tuesday show). Maybe the boys will bust out something special for Jerry's 75th.
