Bstrong5001 This show was awesome from start to finish.. It was one of "Those Shows"... With full on Phish antics, and rare gamehendge songs it was straight awesome.. My friends and I had been waiting on a Ghost for a while as well as a YEM.. This will definitely be marked as one of the best shows from the first leg of tour.

It had a semi-Camden-esque feel to it in the First Set, and with Free in the second as well. I would however say that the songs that were repeated from Camden were all played better.. This phase of opening shows with Mikes>H20>Wikapaug, is kind of cool, (Tery has played I am Hydrogen how many times, and he still f%$s it up everytime these days) and This set the played that line up sweetly with the best versions of those songs being played this tour so far..(I do miss longer groovier weekapaugs .. but alas) Scent of a Mule was played better as well, than previously.. anyways enough on my vague Camden comparisons..

Colnol Forbins > Fly Famous Mockingbird .. Awesome !! just listen to it ..Wolfmans had a good peak in the jam .. Scent of a Mule was played well.. Catchin an Axilla was cool too.. How can you not hardcore rock out to that one??..

Found myself wondering how they were going to top the first set, and was a little worried they would come out for the second set and slow it down with mediocrity ... NOPE I WAS WRONG..

2nd set opened with Backwards down the number line.. Played well, and had me thinking mediocrity .. Rock and Roll .. here we go .. a sweet jam after it drifting us in a dark demented ambient jam headed toward a Ghost.. It seemed like Trey couldn't get his looper to work right and had to give up on it.. Ghost played well with a littel flubadub here and there.. mike funked it up.. something which is occasionally left out of ghost.. the jam ending Ghost was sick...bang Free .. rocked as usual.. I wish mike had funked it up a little harder on that new bass of his, but on we went into Reba.. (people stop marking Reba as "No Whistling" damn it.. that song ends with a bad momma of a jam now instead.. and that's what they gave us .. Icculus .. Fun Phish antics.. HYHU Trey on the drums fishman singing Bike... Sweet Sweet Sweet.. Then a Rockin CDT and a much anticipated YEM... Awesome but rather typical YEM..

Wilson Encore.. a little more gamehandge.. and a Loving Cup to end it .. wow Solid Stuff Through and Through .. Like I said earlier this will be marked as one of the best if not the best show of the first leg of tour IMO.. We still have 2 more to go.
