Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads Great setlist all around, if perhaps a little songworthy. We get big jams in The Curtain With, Wolfman's, Chalkdust, and Tweezer -> Sand > Piper (the Sandpiper, if you will, for all you ornithologists out there, or just phans of the band Finch led by lead singer Troy Anastasio), though. The Chalkdust is my favorite jam of the night. It has a distinctive 3.0 flavor, if I do say so myself, in that it's more textural than it is "shreddy," and that's great! We still get to hear "shredding" from time to time. I like noticing that Joy was properly segued into; it makes me wonder if that has happened before, or since. Mike's Groove to close the second set is a great song(s) choice, IMO, and one that I would like to see more often, since Phish doesn't seem to want to put Mike's Groove in the second-set opening slot recently. I rated this show a 3/5, which just means "average-great," but if I had to rank Dick's 2014, I'd go 8/29 > 8/31 > 8/30... in other words, this is my second-favorite show of the run, and one of my favorite shows of the year. It was a very good year.
