type2guy Yet another great TAB show. This show made my 4th time seeing Trey, and the amazing artists backing him, play live. The pre show atmosphere was different than the 3 previous times (2/23/11, 10/22/12, 1/25/13). There was no lot scene like there was at the E Factory, no pre/post show "chill-droog-mellow" like Stroudsburg. I got to the venue way too early, since I had the whole day to waste driving to VA, from NC. I planned to meet with a .netter @Ednaz), but got caught up with some stuff before, which led me to being the first person in line for the show. Busses pulled up, and band members started flocking into the venue. I got a chance to meet some band members, including Trey. For the fact that he took some time to talk, meet, and take a pic, was a great show of how cool he is/was. Great pre-show experience. "The National" was a decent size venue, great sounds, and like the other TAB shows I've seen, make it easy to get near the stage and feel like you are a part of the show.

Show started with Sometime After Sunset, followed by Alive Again. Both were played very well. The next song, Cayman Review, sounds like a 1930-40 scallywag, finger snapping, flapper, speakeasy song. Very funny song, but the horn section really shines on this one. Next song, Burlap Sack and Pumps, is a funky/dirty/make you groove song. No lyrics except for "Burlap Sack and Pumps", followed by awesome solos, and outstanding musicianship. Frost, Drifting, Spin, 1977, Magilla, Valentine, Push On 'Til the Day, were all done well. Trey's playing is so much more "free" with TAB. IMO, its a great outlet for him to get out and play, but also for the band to showcase their talents....which they do night after night, tour after tour. The way they deliver the music to the crowd, is very intimate. Great lyrics, great playing.

The entire 2nd set was ENERGICO, so much jumping, dancing, and grooving. The crowd was very much into it from start to finish, with maybe 1 or to cool down moments. I cant get into all of the songs now. But I remember Pigtail, The Land of Nod, Sand, Goodbye Head > Architect, Clint Eastwood > First Tube, being the nights greats. I love Phish songs, lyrics, wacky and cleaver. But, Architect is one of those songs that really speaks to me, in ways other songs don't. It's emotional, inspirational, and uplifting.

Overall, this was a very memorable show, and almost forgot....I met my first .netter in person @CarriePhisher, during set break. Thank you TAB for making this a very special night.
