Aust1e I have struggled to understand Phish. When my brother, @Penn42, starting listening to them years ago they almost gave me a headache. I didn't understand what they were doing. Despite this, I agreed to go see the gorge shows of theirs in 2011. Those shows helped me understand what Phish was doing, and I started to enjoy listening to them more. But when listening to Phish, I still grew old of jams that were extremely long, they lost me.

Now although 2011 gorge had some awesome jams, I was too new to be able to follow them or appreciate them. Last night though, I followed Tweezer every note of the way, and loved it! Afterwards my bro took a guess, when I asked, at how long Tweezer was, he said 20-25 minutes. I remember thinking it felt short (cause it was so awesome) and that it was, at most 20-25. Then we find out it's 36 minutes, and for me to not have gotten bored or have zoned out for the 36 minutes of jamming is just too cool!

I'm excited to listen to more long jams from Phish now, as the gorge shows helped me understand basic phish, Tweezer was my gateway jam!

The rest of the show was real solid. After Tweezer I wanted another big jam song, but I think they all laid down what they had on Tweezer. Lawn Boy, camel walk, Tela, all very cool to hear. A fun show, im going to love re-listening to it.
