dublindeuce Pretty good Tuesday night Phish!

Stash is making a case for itself as jam vehicle of the young tour. This one is only 12 minutes, but quickly goes to wondrous places following the composed section. Psychedelic and dreamy, this Stash really packs a punch! In its' Phish debut. Ruby Waves gets a very nice jam. YEM ends this set with an exclamation mark. It's nice to see the return of Sample in a Jar and Frost as well.

The second set is solid enough. Plasma doesn't get too far before before Trey opts for The Final Hurrah. With the help of Page, Trey steers the band to a nice beachy groove. I'm a sucker for a good Wingsuit, and this one is lush with washes of with color and sustain provided by Trey and Page. This Golden Age is phenomenal. Mike and Fishman provide a solid foundation for Page and Trey to lay cerebral textures on. It really deserves another relisten, or three. Unfortunately, after Golden Age, the show loses steam. IAWITW doesn't do much for me in this slot. Prince Caspian, If I Could, and 46 Days are all performed well, but lacking the propulsive energy earlier songs in the set had. This is the first time I'm aware of 46 Days ending the second set of a show.

Overall, not a great show, but pretty solid! Definitely listen to the Stash, Wingsuit, and Golden Age!
