Review by headyburritos

headyburritos I would rate this Halloween run as the most fun I've had out of the three runs I've seen. Other runs may have had better music, but this run brought all of the stuff I love about Phish; good jams, solid pranks, lots of fun, and friends from all over meeting up in one place to enjoy the music of Phish.

First set was pretty standard and contained some fun "Halloween" songs to get the night started right. My lady and I found a good spot on the floor and held it down all four nights, which led to a new friendship with a huge crew of people who just so happened to live close to us. Thanks Phish!

The "cover" set is where this show earns its keep. Personally, I "fell" for the gag. I did not do any internet sleuthing and did not look into the gag until way after the show. I assumed Phish was telling us the truth (stupid, I know) and believed that we were hearing some obscure Scandinavian band the whole time. I thought the stage design and set up really sold the act, and the music itself felt very prog-rock but also somewhat Phishy. If I had really considered it, I probably could have guessed that it was all original Phish music, but I was so swept away by the entire performance that I never really gave it a second thought.

Third set was pretty solid, but nothing earth-shattering. After such a monumental gag in the second set, it's not surprise that they lost a little steam in the final set. Halloween is a looooong show!
