JezmundTheFamilyBeserker96 Set 1 Highlights: Chalk Dust Torture (Standout Version), Bathtub Gin, Back on the Train

Set 2 Highlights: 46 Days (Standout Jam), Thunderhead > Run Like an Antelope

Phish comes roaring out of the gates with a stretched out version of Chalk Dust Torture that explores absolutely every inch of musical structure available before returning to the theme to close. Bathtub Gin follows up (8/9/04 is looking mighty similar at this point) and breaks into a groove from the initial jam before returning to the Gin for a rousing conclusion. It's Ice follows up and proves to be as bold of a choice as it looks on paper with Trey trying to keep up with the monster composition. Back on the Train comes swaggering on in next and is a groovy version highlighted by Trey and Page. The rest of the set was like a shrug in my eyes, no real flow present. The debut of 46 Days busts the doors off to open the second set. I hadn't heard this version before and man, it's a real doozy. Absolutely, must-hear material. Simple and My Friend, My Friend come in next and are both pretty full of flubs (across the whole band). Limb by Limb is a very typical version and doesn't do anything to rekindle some of the energy that was lost after 46 Days. An absolutely beautiful Thunderhead shows up next. As the main man of 2.0, @FunkyCFunkyDo, says, Thunderhead f***in' rocks. Run Like an Antelope emerges from the ethereal mist of Thunderhead and is a bit of a Yin-Yang version. The compositional portion is pretty meh, but I enjoyed the jam quite a bit. Cavern closes out the set and Mexican Cousin takes its turn to close out the night. Overall, a very up-and-down show that I feel is representative of how a lot of people on this board categorize 2.0 as a whole.
