dfro20 Was at this night's show. I was very very happy with how they did tonight. I agree that Julius was an expected song but NOT an expected show opener. I am just starting to really get into Ween, so I was pretty excited for Roses are Free, and I thought this particular version was exceptional. Ginseng Sullivan was the only subpar song of the first set in my opinion. The jams were nice and upbeat, but Mike was still struggling with whatever cold or bug he's got and the vocals weren't up to where they could have been, but props to him for really trying to give it all he had anyways.

I was pretty fucking happy to get 46 Days. I had been hoping for it ever since my girlfriend pointed out that there were 46 days in between the last night of Dick's and the first night of Hampton this year, and that the song had only been played 46 times before tonight's show. I was happy with Divided Sky, but even happier when they started up Bold as Love for the set 1 closer. Page sang it well, and the ascending jam during the song was on point for sure. It's hard for me to say whether Bold as Love or 46 Days was the biggest highlight of the set for me.

I suspected Paul and Silas after Trey asked the fans if they were dressed as Waldo or in jail stripes because they were going to play a song for the jail stripes. Then came the Tweezer, which was definitely the biggest highlight of my second set and maybe even the whole night. This tweezer got funky, it got dark, it got epic, and it got spacey as shit. I was really digging Mike on the power drill this weekend, maybe dropping hints for a Van Halen type of Halloween show.

Then came Golden Age, which I will be honest is not really a song I hope for (I'm not really a TV on the Radio kind of guy). That being said the version of it was killer, and I actually got really into hit, especially the ending jam. Piper was standard for me, but still enjoyable, and TCofB rocked the house. Fun, classic covers like that will always be a favorite of mine at shows because the band adds their own Phish spin to the song to get everyone in the house pumped up.

2001 followed really nicely, and this version I think was better played than some of he most recent versions, particularly Oak Mountain 2012 and Alpharetta night 2, 2013. Sand was also standard, but wtf I love that song so I'm not gonna complain about it, and the Slave closer was a really great way to end the show on a super high note. I was really hoping for Sleeping Monkey, and was a bit disappointed with Day in the Life. I have now gotten that song as an encore 4 times, and 3 times it preceded Tweeprise, so I'm just ready for something new.

Definitely a great show tonight. Wish I was going to the rest of the tour, but I will be couch touring for sure.
