kowphish Have to admit, I thought this show was much worse than the review suggested when I first read it, but then I went back to (re)listen to it and it is much closer as how Elaine writes it up (with a good sense of evenness, a good ear and a better judge of the shows true vibe). Post show I was ready to jump on it somewhat bad, but with the 72 hour rule and a listen of the download has me mellowed quite a bit on it. Sure not the best of versions of Peaches and I personally still can't through the meandering heavy finger solo in Esther which makes me cringe. But the energy is true for the CTB opener, carried in AC/DC Bag and with the Guyute ending, spot on with those 3 songs. At the time I thought the Comet -> 46 transition was a train wreck, but it's much shorter and a mere > than a real bad -> . Had a bad impression of Divided, but it too is not was I perceived. Sweet Southern version of Curtis Loew (soulful for sure), now that's a song you want to hear in the Carolinas! Antelope was good enough, and the Melt, dark space jam definitely is the highlight of the show (and a tour highlight as well). I do still think Fish had an off night overall, somewhat disjointed at times and lacking his usual oomph (possibly feeling a bit drained after the Charlotte antics maybe?), but this is just one other person's opinion of the show, overall tough to beat Charlotte the night before for sure, but a solid average two sets of Phish with even some filbert or coconut filling in those chocolates.
