Scents and Subtle Sounds was teased prior to AC/DC Bag. This show contained the Phish debuts of 99 Problems and Big Pimpin’, both of which featured Jay-Z on vocals and Cyro Baptista on percussion. After 99 Problems, Jay-Z remarked, presumably referring to the Phish scene, that “You all been hiding this from me.”  Jay-Z then said that the members of Phish told him that if the fans made enough noise that he could play one more song, which they naturally did, hence Big Pimpin’. Prior to Hood, Trey jokingly announced an Eric Clapton guest appearance. Mike teased Entrance of the Gladiators before Hood, which was unfinished.

waxbanks Evidence, in case you needed it, that Phish is not a hip hop group. A swell show otherwise.

Review by westbrook

westbrook Kind of a sloppy show and the worst of the month if you ask me. Still, there are some parts worth seeking out. The Jay-Z guest spot should be heard for novelty's sake, as should the Chalk Dust and Hood, which both feature atypical jams. CDT gets into some cool, distinctly 2.0 style space once it goes type 2. Oh and the Tweezer rocks pretty hard as well. I'll take that in a first set any day.

The_Ghost Brooklyn make some noise!

First set Carini is worth a listen. I enjoy that song and the different directions it can go. I tend to enjoy the ones that aren't as dark more, but you need both for balance in life.

Second set features Jay-Z. I think this is really worth a listen because you get to hear the moment when Jay-Z gets it. He goes on to reach new levels in music entertainment after this show. Not that he wasn't already wildly successful.

Overall not one of the shows that I want to go back to except to listen to the tracks with Jay-Z just because it is great to hear the instrumental parts that seem to fit well for me.

Review by Phabio

Phabio On the 11th anniversary of my first show, I look back at the scene. A hot summer day against the banks of the south shore of Brooklyn, a raging lot scene, my 17 year old self with my two closest friends going to see our first show. While the show itself doesn't do much in terms of setlist, the vibes from the night before and knowing that they would soon be done playing 'for good' really added to the hype of the night. The Jay-Z guest performance was more schtick than anything else, let's be honest, the covers are horrible. The Hood is lively and stands out, but other than that it really was an 'off show'. But as always, you can feel good, good, good about Hood. Here's to another 11 years and beyond!

Review by Divided_Stash

Divided_Stash AC/DC Bag: good opener

Camel Walk: played well

Crowd Control: standard

Stash: awesome version that stays type 1

Cars Trucks Buses: standard

Carini: interesting placement, breaks away for a few minutes, but returns to the main riff to finish

My Sweet One: standard

Character Zero: standard rager

Tweezer: very odd position, this combo is a glimpse of 6/7/2009 in the future. This one stays in familiar territory and focuses more on a set ending peak (which is fantastic) than exploration. Good stuff

Wilson: pretty normal

Down With Disease: likely due to the antics that would follow, this version stays type 1 and is cut short. Kind of disappointing but still a fun high energy moment

99 Problems: the ultimate Phish musical guest makes his appearance. Crowd loves it

Big Pimpin: one more. Also this should’ve been first set but whatever

Chalk Dust Torture: back to our regularly scheduled projamming, we get the first type 2 journey of the night. It grows quiet and spacey and goes from there. Really wonderful and creative

Harry Hood: strangely exploratory and unfinished type 2 version

Taste: awesome peaking set closer. Another short set though

Bug: audible “awww” from the crowd lol

Tweezer Reprise: standard

This is not a bad show at all, it just needed more length. Amazing jamming in CDT and Harry, and good playing with minimal flubs. Big improvement on Vegas, the crowd was very enthusiastic. This is a 6/10 with points off for short length and bad Jay Z placement. Highlights are Tweezer, Chalk Dust, and Hood

Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw A awkward feeling show with some very interesting moments.

The opening trio of songs is very straightforward. I wish I could say things picked up with stash, but unfortunately it is a very rough version. Character Zero is a very solid version. Tweezer to end the 1st set? What is up with that? The jam kicks off with some power riffs and Trey shreddery. It goes into a tweeprise type jam and Fish is just destroying the drums towards the end.

Set 2 starts with a heavy Wilson. DWD is pretty strong despite a couple of messed up lyrics at the beginning, Trey goes off towards the end. Jay Z is a very noteworthy special guest, especially considering his level of fame at this time. The songs are pretty sloppy (although to defend the guys I'm sure it wasn't practiced long), but still a very notable stand in. Chalk Dust Torture has a nice little groove to start the jam and moves into space and darker territory. Hood is very short and the end is totally cut off. No idea what happened but it only adds to the eerie vibe of this show. Taste is straight forward and also feels cut off.

Bug> Tweeprise is well a pretty dang average encore.
