Review by otherguy33

otherguy33 This was a fun first show at Dick’s, and I found it fantastic and had a blast. Highlights of the first set at the time were the Sample opener (2nd favorite phish tune, chronologically speaking), Sweet Virginia, Stash, and during set break when I realized all the songs began with S…which was after my buddy brought up the setlist, glanced at it for a minute, handed it to me, and said something like, “Pretty strong so far.” After 30-45 seconds I was like “Dude, all the songs begin with S!” And he was like, “Holy sh*t! Cool!” And then we chatted amongst ourselves, recreated, and by the start of the second set had totally forgot about…wait what was I even talking about? And why did Trey make those snake hisses at the end of the show? All I remember is that was the best Slave I’ve seen since. Haven’t liked any of them even as close to as much as I like that one. Oh yeah, and I was a little overexcited for the show in general I think, because I sang along much more than usual (thought for the record I didn't make a peep during Sweet Adeline, except perhaps to applaud prematurely). And then when they played Sabotage, (a song which, like Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, is one which everybody likes except me, no disrespect), my first thought — well to be honest my first thought was it was Hell’s Bells — but my second one was “oh they must’ve played that because I was singing along too loud.” And then I realized I was a self-centered retard.
