First set: definitely had its moments, ie Llama (raging; trey's non-stop solo over end lyrics), Forbins->Mockingbird (flawless; page escp creative and jazzy in forbs). Bit sloppy on others. Disappointed w/ both mike's and weekapaug. Both started off strong but ended rough.

Second set: Killer landlady. Slop returns in possum then *click*--> ABSOLUTE SMOKE JOB. Squirming Coil --> Tweezer-->Manteca-->Tweezer- "why I listen to phish" moment. Transcendent full band jam out of coil --> tweezer. scream out/play manteca, gordo switches on groovy effect, solid jam, then tension/release through tempo slow-down, into tweezer to tie things up into pretty bow. Daring and creative; band pulls out early top-notch segment here imho. Love the Sweet One/Divided combo. Split on Divided though- Page/Mike superbly playful in 1st half; trey hard to listen to in the 2nd. No Good Trying- LOL contrast between the virtuosic page/popper dueling and the vac solo. Dont Get Me Wrong (last time played) nice 4 minute vocal jam (kinda like wolfman's). Funky Bitch=not too shabby.

Encore: Bouncing and HtH just dont work together. harsh contrast in styles.

Major Highlight (squirming through tweezer) + Highlights (llama, forbs/mock, landlady, possum, No Good Trying, Dont get me wrong) - hard to take down moments (end of mikes/paug/dividedsky) = 4.0
