Review by Museummouth

Museummouth Now this was a Phish show. This set of shows were my wife’s first two shows and after night 1’s snooze fest I was a bit worried if they didn’t hit tonight she might give up. But I’m glad to be relieved by two well constructed sets for an overall rock solid show.

Set 1 was tight and focused with each song having a purpose. Lots of goofy You Sexy Thing teases and a few nice jam moments before closing out with a fiery Maze. One of the best I’ve heard in a long time.

Set II opening with Theme was a bit underwhelming but had a nice little peak before launching into a soaring Birds of a Feather with a really cool mid section before returning to the main melody. Definite must listen. Bug was a breather that wasn’t quite necessary but still was grand and served as a mid set marker. Next we get a Light which dissolves into Party Time with You Sexy Thing teases. Wonderfully fun segment that I’m officially calling “Sexy Party Light.” A late set Ruby Waves goes deeper and weirder than expected for a solid 4th quarter piece and we close with Chalkdust as a cap to the night.

I skipped the encore to beat the traffic as night 1 was horrible trying to leave and tonight I was successful out of there before everyone and didn’t miss anything crazy for the closer. Overall very nice show. On to AC!
