Review by MiguelSanchez

MiguelSanchez as noted in the other review, this is a very good venue. also of note, i drug my dad out here for his first and to date, only phish show. he loved the good assortment of beers in the parking lot.

carini: the boys came out slamming right out of the gate. nice hot start

sparkle: short and sweet

the sloth: awesome! they got the rock and roll vibe back in a big way. good sloth.

maze: this was the highlight of the 1st. as he tends to be, page was all over this maze. very nice high peak.

guelah papyrus: don't see this one very often. good chill out song after a firey maze.

mmgamoio: one of my favorite phishy blue grass tunes. awesome. i thought this set was going to finish strong...

sample: not bad... go ahead and get it out of the way...

rift: hm ok, at least trey didnt flub the lyrics

sleep: come on now

caspian: wow... this set went down hill fast and never turned around. better luck next set...

set 2
boogie on: very long funky boogie on. gordo and page were blazing. fish held it down nicely. and trey had some hot licks. after this jam took a darker turn the clumpsily slipped it into...

twist: not my favorite song, and i found this version to be particularly boring. it seemed to go nowhere, very slowly.

mcgrupp: back on track! very good mcgrupp. page's solo is probably the musical highlight of this show. very eery and dark piano solo.

halley's comet: now we're blazing. they tore through this halley's comet and had a very hot jam going. all of a sudden, trey just looked around, took off his guitar, and headed back stage. page, fish, and gordo wrapped up the jam and abrubtley called it a night. were there bad vibes in the vibe. why kill such a hot jam so early on a nice evening? anyway....

axilla: they are leaving like they came in, rocking. good axilla

taste: pretty solid taste. if trey was pissed in halley's, it did not show here. he played quite well on this taste. maybe he just needed to catch a buzz....

the first half of the first set is definitely worth listening too, but unless you are a big caspian fan, the big half is missable. the boogie on is a notch below the chula vista 99 version, but it still probably, at this time, the 2nd best boogie on. mc grupp is a must hear, and halley's is peculiar. all in all, a mediocre show with killer versions of mcgrupp, maze, and boogie on, plus the sloth!
