mikeytnyc This was my 300th show! It seems like the more milestones I hit, the more demanding I become. It was my first show of the fall tour and I came in pretty fresh having not paid attention to much else despite my affinity for the new Golden 1 Center in Sacramento that I helped build. Did everyone like it? I hope nobody needed the world class sports medicine facility powered by Kaiser that’s attached.
Anyway, Desert Sky, I mean Ak-Chin, does everyone else remember the Camel Walk and Guy Forget? Well I did so it’s kind of difficult to top that, right?
Especially when I’m so heavily distracted by people asking if my party is “OK”. It’s called dancing, it’s called raging, it’s called freaking out. Perhaps try it and you’ll like it. We were the freakers right by the speakers, we were more than Ok.
Trey put some extra mustard on that Julius so you knew it would be fun. They played some other stuff, the segue into Soul Planet was cool and the jam was fun. I loved dancing to More and we got a bonus Ghost to close the set. I always love when they close a set with 2 or 3 set closers in a row because that creates such a palpable energy going into set break.
Speaking of closers, set 2 opened with Loving Cup. I know I’m getting older because I couldn’t help but think about the dearly departed Sharon Jones. I’m sorry Phish, there will never be another Loving Cup as moving unless you get Mick and Keith on stage too.
My name is Mike and so of course I dig into Mike’s groove with aplomb. I have heard Hydrogen since Dick’s ‘19 so that was lovely to my ears.
But, geez, “Yes! We’re OK, now shh!”
The Everything’s Right was so good but I got sick of the looky loos so I went to get some water and was reminded that dancing in the back with friends is also a lot of fun. Except for the military reject that wanted to know where my seat was. Why isn’t everything GA yet?
Before the nazi grabbed I managed to drop a jump kick to emphasize the Life Beyond a Dream. I returned to my section and several friends followed suit and we were rewarded with a lovely Hood. I love seeing love during Hood. I didn’t see any glow sticks, I only saw my friend giving lots of sweet hugs.
The encore, for this tour, was pedestrian right? No bonus spacey jams last night, just a solid show.

Did anyone else hear “Passing Through” at some point during the second set? I started humming the Hey, Heyo Heyo, and it worked but someone geekier than me will need to figure that out.

Please stay safe, wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, and get tested regularly so we can finish this tour as it started. Much love
