Review by Spoonie_B

Spoonie_B This show will forever be described as Page's Monkey.

1st quarter was pretty well played but dubious song placements made for a somewhat disjointed set. 2nd quarter picked it up hard with an amazing stretch from Reba thru Coil (including a kinda sloppy but fun Simple). I thought the whole 2nd set was a monster.My phones gonna die. Farmhouse (which I like better than me lost others seem to) and Halfway kind of brought the energy down, but I thought it fit just fine between a great opening and a blazing Twist, C&P>Hood, Rocky Top. Hysterical banter about Page's Monkey and an always rousing Quinn to send us off. Show loses a star for the dubious Waiting All Night Opener and Wingsuit encore opener and the choppy 1st set list. But the playing was great, the venue is killer, I got to enjoy the show with a first-timer who loved it, and we were as close to the stage as I've ever been for Phish - 10 feet at most. Floor was nice and airy thanks to a hyper intense event staff focus on not letting people in the seats get stubbed down. I was bummed that I couldn't get some friends down there with us, but it made the front less of a crush than it would usually be. Great show, great time.

Highlights: Roggae, Maze, Coil, C&P>Hood.

And Page's Monkey.

This band just don't quit. Seattle tonight! Giddy up!
