ttkammer Detroit Rock City! First Phish show at Cobo, and it was a good one! A small venue that really let Chris and his lights shine (no pun intended). The light patterns on the walls to the left and the right of the stage were something I hadn't seen before. The crowd was really into the show, despite not being sold out. Easily the smallest crowd I have ever seen at a show (probably less than 10,000).

Here are a few of my personal highlights... Page got ahold of Foam and really tore it up! I have a new-found respect for Kill Devil Falls, as the boys jammed-out the second half of the song get a let it get a little dark and dirty. It's Ice and Horn were great additions (Horn was on my "wish list" for that show), the 46 Days was smokin' hot (another newer song that they realy jammed-out), and a Bowie to close the set! SOLID!

The second set had some great moments as well... the 15+ minute DWD into Free was fantastic. Although slow-paced, Waste is one of my favorite "slow" Phish songs, and it was great to hear it. Velvet Sea gave me the opportunity to go to the bathroom and get a beer :) , making it back just in time for a really good Mike's>Hydrogen>Weekapaug (first time in more thn 13 years that I have actually heard Hydrogen in between Mike's and Weekapaug).

Overall... a great show. Fall Phishing season in officially open!
