Review by desmondthefamilyberzerker

desmondthefamilyberzerker In summer of 95, if Tweezer was Phish's way of testing how far out they could take an audience before leaving them in the abyss, then David Bowie was their way of testing how many different directions they could take an audience before bringing them back home.

Starting with Atlanta's rendition, David Bowie gets more attention from the band each time it is played in the month of June.

Just a week earlier, I thought I saw the most impressive Bowie I would ever see at Jones Beach on 6/29. Little did I know that only a week later Phish would push the envelope even further with the complete mind fuck that was Bowie->JBG->Bowie.

To this day it will go down as one of my top 10 highlights. The section around the Bathtub Gin teases is some thick, dense powerful stuff.

This show isnt one that will blow you away from front to back, but this Bowie alone is well worth seeking out, geeking out about and putting in the pantheon of great Phish performances.

Honorable mention to Possum and antelope as well.
