spreaditround SET 1: The Moma Dance: Standard Moma jam. >

Sigma Oasis: Trey sounds fantastic in the early going of this jam. Pretty good jam overall.

Party Time: Standard Time.

Strawberry Letter 23: Standard.

Everything's Right: Love Mike’s tone as the jam begins, meatballs for days. A chunk of this jam seems a tad directionless. Things seem to pick up nearing the 13 minute mark. Trey plays some beautiful lines in the 16 minute range. The re-entry into the vocals is a little jarring. Overall, this is a very solid jam.

Shade: Standard.

Funky Bitch: Standard.

A Wave of Hope: The jam comes flying out of the gate, fast and furious as Trey gives it a proper ripping. It more or less maintains an aggressive stance through 13 minutes.

SET 2: Sample in a Jar: Broadway Trey’d, big time. >

Down with Disease: Intro is a mess and Broadway Trey’d. Super heavy on the effects in the mid-teens. Had to be fun on a head full. Almost sounded like Llama could have come out of it around 16:20. Very impressive jam right here, would revisit for sure. >

Mercury: Standard but great segue into… ->

Blaze On: Very mellow, feel good jam. At 13:20 it almost sounded like Rift was about to happen. This one really rips in the last quarter or so. Solid jam would relisten for sure. >

You Enjoy Myself: Nice Trey and Mike duet. But this YEM jam is very short. Before you know it, it is in the bass and drums segment.

Cavern: Standard.

ENCORE: Drift While You're Sleeping: Trey rips the crap out of the ending.

Replay Value: Everything’s Right, Down with Disease, Blaze On.

Summary: A very solid Phish show with a few, significant high points and nice consistency throughout both sets. Great start to a three night run!
