will address the elephant in the room first: the aborted SaSS. that was definitely an unfortunate moment. the segue in was so sweet and considering how they were playing i thought they would take it deep. trey was obviously just not feeling it. it was a strange moment and the audience was clearly disappointed and puzzled. but as a whole show, besides that one blemish, this was one of my favorites that i've seen this tour (deer creek to now).
first set was near perfect as first sets go. no deep type 2 jams, but every single song choice was pretty much perfect. the highlight of the set was the reba: to my ears this might be the best version i have ever seen in person. composed section was nailed and the jam section was incredible. seemed like fish just kept pushing and pushing trey to take it up a notch and trey delivered. unreal. give it a listen. (melt was also an extremely quality version)
i also very much enjoyed set 2, besides the moment discussed above. INNYLTB is a fun opener--i hope they jam this one out one of these days. drowned was very fun to hear and they played a sweet jam along with it. ghost was amazing--it is incredible how much punch they can pack into such a short jam. deep type 2 achieved in just 12 minutes.
speaking of short-but-sweet--the CDT that followed the aborted Scents was absolute fire. just shy of 9 minutes but imo must listen phish. awesome dissonant jamming that sounded almost like it belonged in melt. give this a listen.
this show might get knocked for having no huge marquee jams or for the Scents ripcord; i'd say while i suppose i wish they went deeper at times, there was a high volume of sick jamming and basically not a single bad song choice (on paper at least). YMMV but i loved it
