Review by kyleindeed

kyleindeed One and done show for me live this summer. Couch tour the rest of the run.

Expectations at a Phish show are no longer necessary. Granted, I've only been to nearly 10 shows and there's a lot of material (Crosseyed and Painless, Reba, Fluffhead, etc.) that I could hope to see at my next show.

I got a shit ton of repeat songs at this show (Faulty Plan and every 'Fuego album' the only exceptions) .... but this show kicked major ass.

They have yet another new feel to their sound and approach... Bravo boys!

S1 in an oversized nutshell was nothing unlike what the top posters have mentioned. I was surprised the open air pavilion seating wasn't more full... we had a lot of room! Every song well placed but nothing outside of the realm of high-end predictability.

S2 opening with Mike's Groove is always better than S1 IMHO. Despite fitting 4 masterful songs in between (all 4 were stellar), the REAL highlight of this show was undoubtedly Harry Hood.

I wanted a hose jam this show, and I got one. Harry Hood.. thank you. Thank you for making me realize what I like more about Phish now than everything else. I mentioned before about the repeats. And any show in years past I might've shrugged off shows that I didn't get as much new live substance. But what I love is that Phish has the innate ability as a group to bring something new to their songs no matter how many times they've been played.

Songs like Stash, BOAF, Mike's Groove, Ghost, Hood, etc. all allow me to consistently raise the celing on how much I enjoy hearing them played.

Glad to have shared this show with so many interesting and exciting phriends. Til next time ... Indeed!
