Review by JOgden

JOgden I'm always a little wary of commenting on this site because it's filled to the brim with the least objective/open-minded, nobody-can-say-anything-even-slightly-bad-about-Phish-shows people out there, but I can't help myself this time. Personally, I feel bad for the people that were there last night. I was supposed to go, but a buddy pulled the plug at the last minute. And while I flirted with going down by myself to see the Halloween show that has eluded me for so many years, I found myself all the happier watching The Daily Show on my couch and following the lackluster setlist on my iPhone. I know the band is going to play what they want to play - and that's how it should be, but I feel a little suckerpunched by last night. Maybe they never explicitly promised to cover an album, but that's what people expected and wanted and for them to pull this stunt in the name of doing something "different" or "from the future" is a f-you to the fans. Play this album tomorrow night, great! But I hope people reading this, who have a smidgen of objectivity left can understand what I'm saying. This show was really a let down and, in my humble opinion, pretty selfish.
