KenNyeThePhishGuy Bust out Fest! Great to see the boys coming off some studio work giving us phans "expect the unexpected"

Set 1:
- Pigtail was an interesting choice, although it sounded very well done. An old-school TAB song...
- Gut-busting Wolfman's Brother got everyone going
- Daniel Saw the Stone - love seeing everyone do-si-do to this number. Very clean and fun.
- Couple' more bustouts with Dear Prudence, Round Room, Uncle Pen, ending out the set with a high-energy, whopping WOTC

Set 2:
- Mike's Song>IAH>Weekapaug. WOW! Great energy, Mike's jam was on point, solid flow with heavy hits. Weekapaug jam had crazy energy, hitting solid peaks with each lick.
- Ghost jam - heavy, chest pounding jam. mellowed out into the line, which is a song I actually like. A bit more upbeat than normal, but sounded well done

E:
Water in the sky done old school style. Loved it! Finishing off with a peaking, scream-your-head-off character zero.

All in all a well done start. Despite our aging friends, they definitely still got it, and should be swinging for the bleachers (pun intended) this weekend as the band moves to CHI for a 2 night run. Like a fine wine, it tastes a little better when you let it sit for a bit. I bet we will see some big things from these guys come mid-late tour.
