Review by Phishin90

Phishin90 This first set was smoking hot, Runaway Jim started it off fast, Punch with fishman and the James Brown shout outs was so nice. I was living in Tahoe and San Fran was my backyard. 3 hours to be there. This was the 2nd night of our two day Phish run. I went down with a crew of 10 including my future wife (6th & 7th shows together). But the PYITE was insane. Cool lot scene, lots of parking, but the ARCO did not have good sound. Luckily we were 1st row Mikes side. ATR was a nice treat, Bouncin was fun as always. Stash was NICE. Fluffhead was the highlight of the great first set. The old home pen was a nice bluegrass feel. Caspian was great, my wifes 2nd favorite song. CDT always delivers.
2nd set. We were all feeling really good by now, La Grange fired us up and It's Ice crushed us, one of my favorite live Phish songs. The Brother Contact sequence was great. 2001 was funky and grooving, then Timber>Jam with the sax dude was Insane. This is a must listen, its like Branford with the Dead stuff. It doesn't show it in the show notes, but there is a 2 minute jam by Phish and the sax dude, UNREAL. Taste is great with the sax ripping throughout. Funky Birch was a grooving jam. The Amazing Grace acapella was deer, I love when they do this, with 10,000 people in the venue to go no mics, pretty amazing. Then the jam after, WOW, slowed it down for a nice mellow encore. Nope. The best Possums I've ever scene (20 total). Sax guy jamming away.
Great overall show. These shows are the reason I became a Phan. This was night 2 of our two day Phish run. Stayed in San Fran, partied down with our crew first night, . This is an underated show. If you haven't heard it, your probably not reading this. Sucks for you.
