Review by The__Van

The__Van Kind of a landmark show for me. My first multi-night run with Phish and it was balls fun, even though it's pretty average.

First set was fun and energetic but nothing special. I would've liked to see them close with Guyute but I can't complain about getting too much Phish at a Phish show.

Second set opened with Punch just like my friend predicted and I thought it'd be a great lead in to some proper jamming. Again, like the night before, the jams came from covers. Now I've got nothing against Phish playing covers but I was really hoping to hear more originals get jammed even if just for a bit.

Drowned was getting pretty cool until Page ripcorded into WITS. Energy it seems is jam vehicle that never was. This version shows what the boys could do with it if they pushed just a bit but it doesn't quite ever take on a life on its own. Fishman just sorta drops out suddenly which leads to a cool little jam between Trey, Mike, and Fish on the Marimba Lumina before sliding into Fluffhead.

Piper is the only thing I relisten to from this show. It gets off to a quick start and gets dark fast; almost hinting at SaSS briefly.

Good show but average.
