sagl57 This show was fun. Not as good as night 1 of the run, IMO, but always fun. I’d call it a below average Phish show, but that’s just me. I thought the first set had some great stand out moments: Blaze On, IAWITW, Destiny Unbound (despite some major flubbing) and the end of Walls Of the Cave.

Second set had lots of potential, but really fell flat for me. It seemed like Trey got thrown off cause he couldn’t nail the end of chalk dust and then retreated to slow build, long sustain peaks and very little creative soloing throughout the rest of the night. CDT meandered and hit a peak, but that jam pales in comparison of some of the great type 2 Chalkdusts of 3.0. Ghost went to some interesting places in the jam, but the whole set felt like they weren’t hooked in, trey especially. Mike and Page were really driving the jams and Fish kept it all together, but trey was just off. He came back a bit during Number Line and stuck the landing on Julius, but I left the show thinking “this was fun because phish is always fun, but it could have been so much better than that.”
