FoxmansBrother Yet another fun show at the SPAC.

This was a very weird show to be at, as it seemed a lot of the Lee's campers that had been present the previous two nights took off early. Vibes were weird as my crew was sobering up to drive back to Boston that night.

Anywho, here's the deal.

Rain commences, and Phish knows the deal. Plays with a couple of rain analogies with BOTT and Divided Sky.

"See me standing in a station in the rain"

Screaming the Divided Sky lyrics into a thunderstorm was awesome, great great great song choices. Rest of the first set was rather forgettable outside Maze with sketchy vocals in Mound and It's Ice.

Second set in a few words: A sculpted masterpiece.

There was not a misplaced song in this set, with a couple of great jams as well.

Good DWD version into Ghost with the return of some TURBO PLINKO. I really love plinko jams so I was going nuts. Great Piper transition with a cool ambient ending landing PERFECTLY into Wading. I've heard Wading 3 times, and this was the only instance in which I actually thought it was appropriate.

Then Phish did what they did best, got really goofy.

Run Like a Meatstick was hilarious, even Trey was laughing when he belted out "You've got to run like a meatstick, out of control!"

Then YEM to close the set was the perfect combination of fun(k) to end the show after meatstick.

Final Thoughts: Second Set flow was impeccable.
