Phishiscool A show/setlist that truly toyed with your emotions. The atmosphere was everything you expected last night. Sand>dwd>soam brought a solid start to the evening, with a few extra spicy licks from Trey. Mike was sending shots of bass into our souls during this intro.... He knew what he did. Ocelot cooled things off, a welcomed splash for some in those fields. Heavy things seemed redundant, furthering the flow. Axilla 2 sent the crowd back into a frenzy, then dragged us through the muck. A fine back on the train chased the darkness, an unwelcomed lifeline in my opinion. Theme toyed with us all again, engaging in emotional emancipation, page with his plinko. Blaze on colored in the lines, and left the crowd anxious, per usual.
A satisfying Possum got the show back into swing. The twist that played out of it could have gone deeper (fish is out of this world). We all want twist to go deeper. Woooooo! Here's where the show earned its stripes.... Ruby Waves was hot. The structure of the song doesn't necessarily send me into outer space, but the improv that proceeded sure as hell did. This second set had excellent pockets of cow funk, all tracing back to the scene of the crime that was ruby waves. Don't doubt me was.... Well I'm not super familiar with it but it really threw my shoulders out. Wave of hope had a Lil something extra, howling gave the crowd some added release. It goes without saying that Piper is welcomed almost anywhere, and slotted into closer role didn't hurt. Was it the set list we wanted? I dunno I don't know that we get to fairly have such expectations. I will tell you this, I'm no expert, but this is the greatest band on earth. Greatest production on earth. Harry hood reminded us that, at any point in time, Phish speaks to us in a language most don't understand. For that, I'm grateful. 4.2 for me. Still one of the best days of my life.
