levitatingyogi I had the best time at this show, even better than the throwdown on Friday at Rosemont which I didn't think was possible.

Having seen the band since 94 I'm amazed how they can continue to 'get me off' and last night was no exception.

From a perusal of the real time setlist thread on Reddit it appears as though everyone in cyberspace was enjoying it as much however I've read several reviews/comments that this show went right over some heads...

For me this is exactly why I come to see Phish, I want the flowing groovy, mystical dance party filled with twists and turns and unexpected treats.

Sunday at Rosemont provided all of these with an interesting first set selection beginning with a moving and juicy opening jam in Everything's Right... Right from the get go you could tell that Trey's fingers were warm and ready and working unlike the night before when Stash was probably chosen to help him get loose.

Destiny was the first treat, a booming version, Tube was jammed well and Petrichor was another gift, the rarity of it and the nostalgic vibes from being present at the fabulous New Year's production will always evoke positive vibes... I was thinking how I'd rather hear this than say another minute eater in Divided Sky which I feel they just don't play well anymore save for the last few minutes... But i digress...

Page laying out the disco vibes was awesome and fun to get the first acapella and probably my favourite other than Free Bird...

Second set is the stuff of legends... Carini with spooky sound effects into what I've been chasing for a few years now, No Quarter... And an extended one at that! The place was loving it.. A great segue into Cities which while short still gave the impact its meant to and then Giboo to really kick off this groove fest... Twist is welcome at any show and this one wasted no time in getting sonically situated, a WTU as meat and then Twist reprise and let me tell you that by that point I was sweating from all the ass shaking and welcomed Shade to hydrate and catch my breath... Until the highlight of the night--PLASMA... Wow was this ever awesome, it's so rare and has such a neat middle eastern? sound to it, exotic in some way anyway and it too was extended reaching a massive peak followed by a raging Zero... I was 15 rows back centre floor and the place was jumping! When they cam back out and started up Fluffhead I was levitatijgt with joy.

This show woke me up and gave me such a kick that I danced for two hours to the funk going down at shakedown and didn't fall asleep until 4 am.

Thank you Phish for being Phish

What an amazing weekend in Rosemont
