bark_obama - I have to admit I never liked the actual song YST but Phish plays it pretty well IMO

- That followed by Tweezer Reprise > What's the Use? is an opening that no sane person can complain about.

- The rest of the first set continues to impress throughout. MEAP is a treat every time. Trey was resurrecting the dead with his fretwork on Reba and Sand.

- Personally I thought the 2nd set was a little busy despite a killer Gin to end the frame. It's not the kind of monster Gin you can sit down with a Guinness and enjoy, but for a Type 1 jam it's really quite excellent. I like all the other songs but I think Twist>Waves>Fuego was too many cooks stirring the pot. Just pick two of them and let the songs breathe more but that's just my opinion. I enjoyed the YST ending but I don't agree with Phish.net that it was a "reprise" more of a quote within the Bathtub Gin ending.

- Fee was rough but fun and the 2001 was lovely. When Trey asked the crowd to sing along, I belted out every word loud enough to wake up the whole neighborhood.
