fhqwhgads The Phish debuts in this show--continuing the trend, though I'm not taking it for granted!--are Blind Lemon Jefferson's See That My Grave Is Kept Clean, which deviates from the original by adopting a New Orleansy type of lilt, and Radiohead's Everything in Its Right Place. The first set feels a bit abbreviated, to me, probably because of the 11:30 PM curfew at Madison Square Garden for all of these Baker's Dozen shows. Party Time has a great crowd reaction about 5 minutes in, if that's what you wanna do. I'm glad to see Dinner and a Movie busted out. The second set has jams in No Men in No Man's Land, Scents and Subtle Sounds (sans Intro), and Prince Caspian, and Fluffhead is played particularly well. Frankenstein is a classic show-closer. This is a well ambitious show. A lot of phans have been wanting a Radiohead cover for quite some time, and Phish weaved it into the fabric of the second set, in a similar fashion to the recent Crosseyed and Painless-fests. I hope this second set's darker tone was an extension of the serendipitously dark tone of 8/2/17 II (at least through O Holy Night: true, authentic psychedelia) and that that means we'll keep getting Mike's Song 2nd jams!
