telascomet Set 1

On the second night of a Phish's two night stand at the Capitol Theater our beloved men from Vermont chose to open the show with My Sweet One. Like all My Sweet One's this one is a lot fun. What sets it apart is right before the final note were all the band members sing "Name" there is about a two minutes of banter between stage and crowd, as Fishman declares "There is a problem with the Bass." Then after fixing what ever needed to be fixed they launched into Foam. Which is nice throughout and contains very strong playing from Trey. Following Foam is Stash which doesn't stray far from the norm but brings the heat non the less. Then we begin the story of Esther (which I believe is one of phish's most underrated songs) with 2 secret language signals in the intro this version of Esther is standard. As Esther comes to a close Trey starts up Chalkdust and Trey really brings the heat on this particular this is a showcase of tension and release. Then we laugh and fall apart for about 3 minutes. Until we calm down with an always beautiful rendition of Fast Enough For You, which fizzles nicely into All Things Reconsidered. To end the Set we are treated to an awesome Mike's Groove, and I mean awesome. The Mike's in particular packs a serious punch. After a high energy Weekapaug the crowd is left to their own devices for 15 minutes.

Set 2

Phish opens this set with a really high energy Suzy to get everyone's blood pumping. Followed immediately by a personal favorite of mine, Paul and Silas. Tweezer plays the role of the first opportunity for the band to stretch their wings in this set. The jam starts off with some nice little funk chords from trey while page stays on the piano. Until Trey takes the lead with some soloing atop an infectious groove from Mike. Trey then lands on a riff which Page and Mike work around for a solid minute of up beat jamming. But it doesn't take long for the jam to turn dark and that it does. The band then weaves between major and minor jamming for a while until segueing (kinda) into TMWSIY into Avenu Malkenu, but before completing the sandwich the boys elected to play a ripping Maze then returning to end TMWSIY. Bouncing around the room is placed nicely in the set and as always has a very beautiful ending. After Bouncing comes Squirming coil. To me Squirming Coil has never gotten the attention it deserves, it is one of those songs that really demonstrates what Phish sounds like. With that said this version is played well with a very nice piano solo by our beloved Leo. On the other side of the stage though we have the one the only Henrietta. In his two songs love you>HYHU he doesn't fail to satisfy the weirdness that we always crave from him. To continue the trend of weird and hilarious songs Harpua Succeeded HYHU. The narration of this specific Harpua is especially humorous with Trey giving a funny narration about how Harpua was looking for some action. The narration about poster is straight weird no other way to describe it. Any way give this narration a listen it's really funny. Golgi closes the set as it often did those days. Then a great one two punch of Contact> Tweeprise serves as the encore.

All and All this show is really Good lots of energy with some good jamming here and there. I would definitely listen to it if you are a big 92' fan. If not then at least listen to this Mike's song.

4 out of 5 stars.
