Good Chalk Dust to start with as I still had high hopes for this one. Guelah had some off spots as the tweaks in the sound continue. Rift continued to have timing problems during Page's solo and a rough ending. Fee was pretty good, maybe some monitor tweaking going on? Maze was ok. Trey desperately needs to tune during Forbin's, which was rough in parts, but had a really funny story with it as usual. "The first holographic Phish show." He does tune during the story making Mockingbird decent. Sparkle was ok. Horn was off on Mike's part. Trey actually says "oops" in IDK's false start and the nicknames fly again after "Tubbs'" trombone solo. Check out Mike's yell at the end too. Page adds some "get up" music after the all fall down signal and the Simpson's say "DOSE". Bowie was a weak closer as more DAT noise interrupts and then cuts off the end of a rough first set.
My Friend is good tonight and has a great Drummer Boy ending. Poor Heart was also good as this set starts to make this show respectable. Melt was good and so was Tela even though it's pretty rare. YEM was good, but the vocal jam was cut. Old tape flip? Fish forgets to turn the snares back on and Trey forgets to tune for an ok Pen. Then the balls come out and then we go right into a Fishman section with a good Brain. Coil had a few problems in the middle, but not too bad as Page again tries to pick up the pieces of this better, but not great set. Cavern even has a false start and makes for an average closer.
GTBT as the encore sums up this show pretty well and I wonder if the band really meant it as there were some good songs for the past two nights, and definitely some bad ones.
The sound problems never really went away making both of these Hollywood shows just average playing to my ears.
