SuzyKatzBerg Believe the hype!! This isn't "the best phish show I've ever been to until the next show"! This is the IT you've been craving! That 1st set! It's a gem! It's engaging and adventurous! Fee opener and then The Curtain With! 555 has become a regular occurrence this tour but hasn't really had the energy I personally anticipated all winter but tonight I feel like we are finally seeing Mike "step up and bust out" and give the song his soul! The connection between the crowd and the band was giving the evening a vitality and blissful enthusiasm. Moreover, it left many of us wondering "what in the world is going to top that!?" How do you follow Saw IT Again>Fuego and then a stellar first set YEM closer!?

You want to know how? By walking out on the stage, grabbing your Languedoc, and not sparing one single second before erupting into a monster Wilson! Maybe it was something in the air but it felt more appropriate than in times past. Tweezer began like every other but not before I cried out to my friends that I could take Tweezer at anytime! Anywhere! All night long! I guess I wasn't the only one who felt that way! The flow into Back on the Train was sublime! The segue back and forth between the two and essentially every song of the second set was without a doubt flawless! This is why we go to Phish shows! The technical skill and timing is mind numbing! Simple will give you goosebumps! Catapult?! Came out of nowhere! Slave was on point and the mid 2nd set DWD was impeccable! The energy! Maybe it was the approaching storms.. NICU is perfection; honestly my jaw was on the floor. Why are you reading this and not listening to this show already?!

I could go into the fine details about the rest of IT but I will sum it up like this.. On the drive home I forgot the first set happened.
Do not forget what I said about how we were wondering after that YEM how they could come out and blow the 1st set away? It was as if it was on a different day or because the second set we all stepped into the freezer and cryogenically stopped time; why that particular analogy you ask? That IS what happened! This entire night will live on forever in our hearts. July 27th 2014 is not a date to be forgotten my friends!
