TwiceBitten This is the kind of show both noobs and jaded vets alike will either hate on or be indifferent to. Nevertheless, I'm here to remind you in a simple way that Phish tears the roof off the sucker every time they play. Set one is mostly a normal 3.0 affair but Stash goes type II for the 2nd time in a row. Not as hetty as St. Louis (by a long shot - that is a very impressive jam) but still above and beyond the norm. Frost is a great and underplayed song, but based on the crowd reaction you can see why. Ruby Waves was a GOTF Phish debut that I think went type II. YEM was a great call and played relatively well and briskly, but this was a short version even for 3.0 standards. This is a great sounding venue. We had relatively close seats but the walkway between the lawn and the pav was the loudest and best part so we did most of the show there. Very solid rage zone.

Now take a look at that second set. Have you ever seen a Phish set remotely resembling that? To me that would be reason enough to check out the show if I hadn't've been there. Plasma jam instantly went to a major key, and I think to type-II-land before segueing (unfinished?) into a Kasvot Vaxt tune. That one also went type II (I think?). I guess you'll have to consult the playback to find out. Wingsuit was sort of an odd call but I guess I'd rather it here then as a late set "you know this show is almost over" song. Golden Age was the improvisational highlight of the night. You'll want to hear this one jam if you're a picker-an-a-chooser. I thought the set from here had solid flow. Even though none of the jams went anywhere, the segues did not feel forced. I'm recalling echoes of some of the Chaifetz 2012 show; remember that one? I absolutely love the encore...takes me to church or rehab or the hospital, I'm not sure which. Thank you Trey, I'm ready for the Lord now.
