Review by Palmer

Palmer My first time in Philly except for hitting the airport back in the early 90's. The venue is huge IMO, seems like a MSG the way the seats and the crowd responds to Phish in a bigger arena scene. SET ONE- Tweezer, continues to have no boundaries and continues to keep the energy alive like they did in the early 90's. Bouncing was next, a rather nice tune and always allowing a good early break for the band to save energy for whats to come, Horn > Heavy Things and Dog Stole Things, eh, Three songs which IMO are just average, not to much coming from these Three. My Minds got a Mind of it's own, My first time hearing this somewhat blue grass, ditty. Roggae > Birds, Guyute, Loving Cup. Good way to end the First Set, I really enjoy Roggae it trances the masses and seems like Phish is continuing to pump out Story of the Ghost as they did for a majority of songs in Albany about a few months ago.
SET TWO- I'm Calling Bowie, Jibboo, nice tune nothing to fancy just average Studio Farmhouse here, Wedge, love the intro with fish on the drums keeping the echoing rhythm, always enjoyable, then my Bowie, This David Bowie was special, continued into a Phish 2.0 Jam. Have Mercy > HYHU > ROsie, Wow! Fishman on Vocals, Fishman going nuts, this is classic Phish. Twist held energy what was not lacking, to close the show, Waste. Not a bad song, just took away the pumping energy of Phila. Encore- Ride Captain Ride, The energy was restored. Good solid Phish 99 show, Keep em coming and ask yourself what will be played next.
