telascomet Set 1 (is awesome)

To begin their two night stand at the Capitol Theater Phish opened with a killer one two punch of Rift>Wilson to get the energy going needless to say the place was rocking. Immediately after Wilson comes Divided sky,they play the song wonderful as always, and the jam in this divided sky has some very nice quiet interplay between band members. The narration in the Colonel Forbin's that follows is very interesting as trey starts speaking to the rhythm of mikes oddly rhythmic playing. Then as always Mockingbird follows and is played very well with no flubs. Fishman then kicks in Split open and melt which has a really sick jam. Its short and packs a punch, definitely give it a listen when you get the chance. The chairman of the boards then steps out to serenade the crowd as only he can during Lawn Boy, then returns to the keys for Reba. This particular version of Reba features some nice work from Page. Then Trey takes the reins and leads the band to a very nice peak. Llama > Mound are both played well and keep the energy high. A little 4 part harmony action in Memories followed by a solid Runaway Jim ends the set and a darn good set Taboot.

Set 2

To maintain the energy of the first set they open up set 2 with some banter about hats and Axilla. Then some Bluegrass poor heart action commences. The band then gets some crowd involvement in Possum. In typical 92' fashion Trey goes all Machine gun on the Possum and its awesome. Phish then express their love for us phans in a classic rendition of Glide. Followed by Its Ice which features a nice jam. Mcgrupp is a very overlooked song if I do say so myself and I wish it was played more nowadays. McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters is played well and portrays some intricate interplay between Leo and Big Red in the jam. I walk the line is placed well and brings us to David Bowie. Some of the best pre 93' jamming came in David Bowie and this version is not exempt from that statement. Early in the jam Trey lands on a cool riff and the band builds around it for a little while before threatening to move into a more up beat jam. After about three more minutes of solid jamming Bowie ends. Although it doesn't break from the structure I still recommend giving this Bowie a listen. The Horse> Silent in the Morning serves as a wonderful landing pad. Then donut boy takes a turn on guitar for Faht. Which gives Trey an opportunity to say how Jimi Hendrix was the greatest electric guitar player ever. Take the A train is always fun and guided us to Cavern which closed the set and included some neat Jimi Hendrix teases. As a final tribute to Jimi's Birthday they encored with Bold as Love which would end the show.

This show is very good, and has very high energy throughout, I recommend listening to at least some of it. Overall highlights were the SOAMelt, and the Bowie.

4 out of 5 stars.
