Review by cristilclear

cristilclear This was a solid show as any Phish show goes. If you like the dark thread then this show had it. Wolfman's>Wilson started the stitch. Curtain With was meticulously played and dug quite deep. There was much digging to be had last night. They took their time with the whole first set and it felt long. The Rift through MMGAMOIO was kinda poppy but the last two songs upheld the thick dark thread and somewhere in there Gordo twanged out a couple very fresh bass lines (the kind that probably required some practice) and then dropped a gigantic bass bomb. I think he dropped that sort of earth-shattering bomb last year at Worcester too. It's distinguishable from other "bombs" because the building actually shakes and people who weren't necessarily paying attention shudder and look fearful.
Waves, a beautiful second set opener maintained the darkness into Carini and then Prince Caspian came along and womp womp womp woooooooomp. Right around here my friend, who hadn't seen a show all summer nor fall until now, said, "Way to bring the show down," when Numberline followed the Prince. I assured him, "they have been ripping up Numberline hard". Which they did. Ghost maintained more darkness (which we like), Dirt is one of my favorite songs, DWD, eh. Sneaking Sally was a nice alternative to Boogie On. I wondered if they would play both of those songs in the same set. Cavern was nice placement out of Sally. The Antelope tied up the dark stitch nicely. During the Suzy, that friend of mine said, "Ok, time to go Cristilclear". "Uh. Uh," was my reply. Good thing. I suppose some people could take or leave the Rocky Top>Good Times but I'm calling that four- song encore a third set and I"LL TAKE IT because there is no where else I'd rather be then right there in Phish's very large pocket. Good Times has been solid all summer and continues to be this fall. Party on!
