MountainKung303 The first of two great nights. 4.12 stars

Nice first set. SOAM has that original melt grove. A fun Fee well performed. Ice>Glide>Bowie makes a great set closer. I like It's Ice as a song. It tells a story; very progressive type of a song. But sometimes I think the funky changes can throw the band off. They totally nail this one. Glide. Special song, secret song, sacred song. An amazing, slightly fast tempo version. A great Bowie with a "structured jam" that walks into near lunacy finishes it off. UB Bowie...

Second set has a really good Fluffhead, very clean. Really this entire show has that great Phish chemistry that is one of a kind. You can tell they're comfortable with it. There's a BBJ in the second set. Probably a lot funner to be there than to hear it with no big ball. A cool little Mike's Song intro for a Groove. Indeed the primary riff for Simple is present just for a couple of bars. My understanding is that that riff poped up here and there in '93 and debuted in '94. I love that song. The music and lyrics are from Mike Gordon's journal. Great Gig in the Sky>Weekapaug, oh hell ya. A hard to hear Carolina on the version I have. Barbershop with one mic. As it should be I suppose. A hoppin' Rocky Top tops it off, complete whit hoots and hollers.

It should be noted that Johnny B. Fishman was on top of things all night.

"See you tomorrow."
