Underdawg Just so many highlights to this one. As others have noted on this thread, Carini was magical. Great balance, patient evolution through the song. Kudos for throwing down this masterpiece, the BGCA crowd will remember this one for a long time! Was initially upset that we couldn't get to the venue before doors opened - but ended up with good seats center up - decent sound balance unlike the last time (do others have this problem with BGCA?). 46 days was a solid starter, although I have heard a more memorable one in years past at the same venue. With Cities, the band announced they were going to make this a night to remember - and it didn't let up from then on. Mom Dance delivered a gut punch (in a good way!!) to kickoff set 2 -- with Trey, Mike, Page and Jon showcasing each of their wizardry through the exploratory riffs and flavoring. And that final closeout by Page - wow. A shout out to the phans near us - just great company, safe travels back to Colorado!

Final thoughts - Phish seems to have perfected their art form, just a showcase for the ease/ immersiveness of their music, with spectacular guitar riffs/ solos, and percussive imagination. Feels like the MSG baker's dozen gig from last year has helped them grow even more..just amazing.
