tweezedout Here is my take on the show...

Outstanding first 3 quarters.

Jams were toptier 4.0 Phish. Type 2 everywhere -- funky, spacey, jazzy, rockin, weird -- all of the above. Bag was extended, Sparkle was fun, BOTT always rips hard on Type 1, and most of us crave Foam.

Tweezer was exceptional. It kept me engaged the whole time. In one segment I thought they were moving into 'All Along the Watchtower.' So many segments in 19 mins and so funky.

Wingsuit I love; a lot of phans hated this move. I love these spacey jams though because you can hear all of the band members communicate so well as they weave in and amongst the patterns. Give Trey this space in 4.0 and you hear some of his best playing in my opinion.

Back to Tweezer.. awesome, sure, why not. Let us boogie more. Birds of a Feather, same thing. Sure! Kept the crowd pumped and moving.

Joy is a mixed bag. Personally, I love this song. It's a good time to self reflect which is really more beneficial for my life style at this point. At the same time, I want to dance like a lunatic and this song does bring the crowd energy down. Absolutely gorgeous song, but it does something to the show.

I love the song Taste and the jam is always fire though I would love some longer builds from both Trey and Page. And I wish Trey would strum the rhythm like he used to.

If they go into YEM right here it might have been a 4.5 to 5 star show. 4 complete quarters using Joy as the cool down. Substituting Joy with another Tweezer segment you're looking at a 5 star for sure (I feel, in an all encompassing Phan eye).

But that's okay. When we take a step back we realize that we're spoiled rotten. These guys give us everything they have on a night to night basis and they are brilliant. How lucky we are!

4 star show!
