Review by EvenCarlSagan

EvenCarlSagan This was my first show but i am not too much of a n00b to not realize that it was a very good,solid show...maybe not quite a super "stand out" epic one,but so what? It's a privilege to see them in 2015 on this tour...and at Alpine.
So,with that said,i had a great time up near the front of the lawn & i only got tapped by a few marshmallows & glow-sticks...haha!
I wore my Phish cap & a SpongeBob SquarePants "Here to party" t-shirt that my wife bought for me for my birthday...& some Hunter S.Thompson style white Chuck Taylor All Stars.
I was ready for any kinda fun & weirdness to happen! Bring it on!

The set one favorites for me was seeing a nice Reba & a very fun,energetic Possum closer...also Julius and Faulty Plan!...A rare Frankie Says threw me for a loop but listening back on the SBD now as i type & then digesting those lyrics,it seems fitting to me with a Maze on it's heels...don't they both refer to the "Eternal Return" concept?

I was scared a bit for Trey's guitar when (what looked to me like) he got his foot tangled on the underneath side of it & it's stand...almost knocking it over completely after putting it down...right after set one finished! Nice Catch Trey!

Set 2 had a very crowd motivating Disease> Halley's Comet & Twist (Singing along was a must! & sing we did!)...What's the Use? had Page turning into the Wizard! Stupendous!...and then a seemingly, more mellow than usual Backwards Down the Number Line...Birthdays! Friends! Cheers! Love this song!
...the double Encore of Meatstick > Character Zero left us wanting more...even though our feet & legs were sore from the steep-hill-dancing...no pain,no gain!

I can't complain about anything really though...for a first Phish show,this one is a keeper to me. Alpine was a great place to see a show & going there with an old buddy of mine & his daughter for their first Phish/Alpine show was just too much fun!
