Jakob2001 ***SORRY IT CUT OFF THE 2ND HALF OF MY POST***
Here's the rest (i don't know how to just edit my original post)!!

My 1/13 Review-

From the 'Free' Opener make no mistake about it The Guys are playing on a beach right next to the ocean (just in case you forgot) and not so subtle reminders of that were present throughout the entire show! Case in point, just two songs later an early (and welcome) 'Sand' made an appearance with 'Theme' following suit before they settled into a fairly typical, not so dirty, yet always funky, 'Funky Bitch'. A well situated 'Undermind' progressed the set into yet another straight-forward rock version of 'NICU' before the first set finally built itself up into a very natural, however not-at-all surprisingly placed 'Wolfman's bringing the set to its crescendo to round out the opening night's opening set.

With the beginning of the second set came 'A Song I heard the Ocean Sing' and still another clump of watery/ocean-esque inspired songs serving as reminders that again confirm, "Yes, we are playing on a beach right next to the ocean" as noted in the lyrics of both 'The Wedge' and 'Prince Caspian' which ultimately gave way to one of the second set highlights... a relatively short, but still sweet version of 'Twist'. 'Golgi' led into an always up to the task 'Antelope' which, as it never fails to do, put an exclamation point on the set, the show, & the opening night. A light-hearted, bubbly 'Contact' appropriately mimicked the dancing, swirling sea breeze and seemed as if it left everyone, crowd and band alike happy, upbeat, and smiling as 'Bug' finished off the evening.

An above average show to get everyone off & running on this Mexico run with plenty of room to keep raising the stakes and make another memorable run of Phish shows for all the folks lucky enough to be in attendance.
