Review by chrismcguire634

chrismcguire634 I finally feel as though I can "honestly" review a show from this tour. Although I wasn't at the performance, my wife and I bought the HD webcast and enjoyed both sets and encore over dinner and drinks.

Set one was fun, uplifting and a definite premonition as to what was to come later in the evening. A Gumbo opener featured great interplay between page and rest of the band, a nicely crafted Tela, one of the most entertaining (visually and musically) Mule's I've seen in quite awhile, a deep Ocelot and a rockin' Type I Walls of the Cave.

Set two featured interesting song selections coupled with great jamming (my favorite cocktail for a great set). DWD raised the energy and imparted some nice jamming. The rest of the set, however, is some of the best playing this tour and should be noted in the history books of 3.0 era Phish. Winterqueen>Theme>Mike's were executed perfectly and displayed great improvisation between the band. As I now have the luxury of hindsight, the set up to this point was merely a 'heating of the proverbial pot' that would reach boiling point to yield: The Wedge, Ghost->Weekapaug, First Tube. I will humbly decline from trying to put this segment into text as I lack a mastery of the English language to do the music justice. I will say this, go an get it now.

Great show, the band is producing great music and is having fun doing it. I can't wit to see what's in store next. See you all on Fall Tour 2014!!
