Review by headyburritos

headyburritos This show was a fun start to the Summer Tour and my first tour opener ever. The early start time combined with the mid-summer date meant that almost the entire show was played in at least partial light. Regardless, the city and venue were perfect for Phish. I was able to be up on the concrete 'pit' both nights and had an awesome time.

With that said, it definitely took some time to find the groove again, with some first set sleepers but a few highlights as well. I recall enjoying the Sand, Blaze On debut, and the Tube + Wolfman's to close the first set.

The second set has a lot of great 'hits' but not necessarily any big time jams. They were definitely focusing on working in the new tunes, and I'm really glad I was there to see several debuts on this 2-night run. It's been a lot of fun to see those songs develop over the past year. Hopefully Shade and Mercury (night 2) get some more play time so they can really find the right placement for them in a live setting.

The Mike's sandwich containing Shade and NMINML is a nice treat, topped off with a fun Boogie on and CDT to wrap up night one. I thought the Theme encore was a bit unusual, but I'm not complaining. Perhaps it helped set up a summer of fun encores culminating in the Dick's THANK YOU encore.
