fracai Ah man, Dick's night 2!!
I was feeling a Free opener about 2 months ago..felt so good to get my wish. :) I feel it starts a set off really nice and has a good statement. Here we all are taking a giant vacation in Denver with great music, great people, great food trucks and great weather. We are all free.

Anyway, set 1 was fire! The opener and first couple of songs had some rain which created a really cool vibe.
I beleive we all thought Wingsuit would have made a worthy closer but we got The Bowie. Now this Bowie...
This Bowie had all the energy that we needed. This Bowie put me in a trance and haunted me out of it at the same time. I don't think I've heard the ending more solid before either. This version gripped me hard. I for sure thought this would close but then the Fish played his groove to Cavern and I couldn't stop smiling. Thank you Trey, thank you Phish.

Set 2 was just pure fun. I had a first timer friend who only really knew the song What's the Use and they fucking played it. I love phate. Anyway, every song they threw in Set 2 just matched the energy of the audience. Perfect calls, patient jams and everyone was on point.

Now the encore for me was something special. I was so happy to hear the return of The Horse. Silent is such a beautiful ballad and had everyone's breath taken away. Jokester Trey kept me alert while he told his story of In a Hole and i think he received great reactions. But after that... Fluffhead! Fluffhead?
What a fucking victory lap of a song to end the night. They nailed this song note for note with so much meaning behind every intricacy. YES!!
