Review by mattc

mattc Phish took a break from the outdoors show in August '93 to play Club Eastbrook, a relatively small club in Western Michigan. Located in a strip mall, the pre-show festivities seemed a bit out of place but allowed for a some fun conversations (including a bold a love request) with Trey as the boys made there way from the tour bus into the venue. A general admission show, there was a nice sized floor up to the front of house area, where were some tables and chairs are the floor began its incline.

It seemed to take forever for the boys to come on stage but they did so in style with Page and Fish leading the way with buried alive. Mike and then Trey made their way on stage to get song going. Jim and Ice were well played. Then we got a new bluegrass tune and a real nice acoustic guitar intro into my friend. A wonderful Mango Song prepared the way for a killer Stash.

The real highlight, for me anyway, was the second set. A heavy and deep Mike's started things off and took off into a amazing psychedelic jamming that lasted through Great Gig. The fog machine added a great touch. After a rockin Weekapaug we were treated to a rare ATR before a tight Esther. Page and Trey nailed JJLC and then they closed with a Simpsons-laced Antelope - classic Phish.

The Bold as Love encore by request was a perfect end to an amazing show in what I consider to be one of Phish's best tours.
