fhqwhgads The first set was a bit all over the place, sort of, I suppose because so many songs had already been played according to the no-repeats schematic. Most Events Aren't Planned was certainly welcome, as even moreso was the return of Izabella, last played 7/31/98. Trey started it out a bit slower than they used to play it, but Fishman kind of egged him on into moving it into a faster tempo. Another majestic Simple opened the second set, and You Enjoy Myself was the other highlight of that set. The encore is classic, in my opinion, with Lawn Boy Reprise hearkening back to the Chalk Dust Torture Reprise from 12/30(?)/94 and 7/11/00, as well as reminding me distinctly of Stereolab, or at least of lounge music in general. Then Mike gets his Weekapaug Groove bass intro, which had been "ripcorded" a few nights prior, and we all luxuriate in the predictable yet eagerly anticipated Tweezer Reprise to cap off this magical, mysterious Baker's Dozen run of shows that will surely go down in Phishtory.
