gamehenger This was my 6th Phish show in Alpharetta, and after the 2011 second day of rain, I had high hopes for the first day that provided clear weather. I saw the world premier of KDF @ Bonnaroo 2009, and it was to date the best version I've ever seen, but it made for a great opener considering I enjoy the song. I knew when I heard Mound, they had something to prove because in 2011 Alpharetta Day 2, Mound was stopped mid-way and the show was postponed due to the threat of severe weather. This was a good Mound, and I felt like we deserved it. Bathtub Gin is always welcome, and it was well placed. When I heard Possum, I felt like I needed a bathroom break because I dont care for it too much, but this one had Horn teases and it paved the way for Pebbles and Marbles. They have played Ocelot every time I saw them in Alpharetta, and the segue into Cavern was great. Cavern is a personal favorite of mine, so I always love hearing it. SET TWO opened with an energetic Rock & Roll, which Ive come to love. R & R > Heartbreaker really sealed the deal for the second set. Makisupa was a REALLY great surprise, and I knew things were only going to get better. CDT > Wilson... Those two are a mean 1/2 combination, and with Teases from Heartbreaker along the way turned the energy UP to AMAZING. It didn't stop there, Wilson segued into Tweezer which also contained HB teases, when it fell into Silent in The Morning I knew they were going to JAM the rest of the set, and my feeling prevailed. Harry Hood with HB teases > Character Zero with more HB teases. Tweezer Reprise sealed the DEAL! This was one of the best second sets I've EVER seen! The energy of the crowd was amazing, and Alpharetta 2013 is an experience I will never forget.
