aybesea Notes from night 1 of this outstanding run:

Set 1 - The composed section of Reba is a bit of a hot mess, but the jam kicks in and things improve. The set then builds momentum as it goes along. Jim>NICU>S3 are solid and pave the way for a very strong Wolfman's. But it's WotC that takes this show to the next level, and at the 13 minute mark begins coloring way outside of the lines. The ->Bowie is just icing on the Set 1 cake.

Set 2 - When V2 was on fire, they could burn white hot. And so it goes with this outstanding second set. Everything following halftime could be accurately described as essential Phish and should be in your regular rotation! A stellar Ocean and LxL join a ridiculous Piper to make for one of the best Phish sets ever. Even the phlubbed Cavern is a compelling closer, with its Purple Haze overtones.
