Review by Guelah34

Guelah34 Out of the only four Phish shows I've been to, this ranks my favorite of them all. I was behind the stage for the first time, and had a perfect view of everything. Before the show started I met a guy named Phillip and we became instant friends. We were ready for the show to start.

Free- Good opener, solid playing nothing out of the ordinary here.

Moma Dance- Always a good funk song to get down to, no complaints here.

Possum- More high energy! I know there is a lot of Possum hate, but this song rocks.

Roggae- Finally a chance to catch our breaths. Great placement here.

Stash- Great choice as well. This one didn't stretch out as much as I was hoping, but solid playing all around.

Back On the Train- Really was enjoying the song selection. Another standard version.

Sugar Shack- Was the first song I was not to excited about. But when Trey starts that little riff, it is just such a happy song. Hard not to like this. Made me a Sugar Shack fan after this.

The Line- Probably my least favorite song on the new album. I remember Trey pretending to shoot a basketball before the song. Thought they were talking about the Miami Heat haha. Didn't put the two together until the song started. Duh

Ocelot- Always enjoy Trey's solo on this one.

Squirming Coil- My first Coil! I was amped up for this closer. Leo's solo was longer than usual. I got lost in his piano solo, it was just sublime. Definitely check this one out.

Highlights: Coil.

Set break

I was calling a DWD opener, but it was..

Mike's Song: Okay okay. This one got funky quick. Mike started teasing Martian Monster right as the jam started. Trey was using his new clapper pedal. That thing is pretty sweet. One of the longer Mike's of 3.0.

46 Days: Wasn't really expecting this either. Appreciated the extended jam here. I've always liked this song. Gets the juices flowing.

Weekapaug Groove: This is why we all go to shows isn't it?! Wasn't obviously surprised when this one started. Had no idea what we were about to witness. Trey was shredding this one. After sometime he moves to the Marimba. I had a front row seat being behind the stage to witness this. The smile on Trey's face was priceless. Then all the sudden, Mike switches to the guitar and the place exploded again. Mike was laying down some deep chops. I have never been so excited in my life. Was so lost in this jam. Lost my stuff here. Also loved the "They Attack" teases my Page here.

Fuego: Keeping the energy rolling, not letting up yet. Compared to the versions this summer this one didn't go very deep, but who doesn't love some Fuego? Another great placement IMO.

Slave: Yeah, needed a cool down after all of that. Trey guided us through this one beautifully.

2001: Dance party.

Walls of the Cave: I can dig it. Always down for some Walls. Solid closer.

Sleeping Monkey>Rocky Top: Perfect ending to a outstanding show.

I was so amped after the show, was ready to party until 5 the next morning. Show wore me out there wasn't much left in the tank for the final night.

I unfortunately don't have the opportunity to see Phish very often, and this show made me realize why everyone travels miles upon miles to see these guys. The amount of pure joy I get from this band is truly priceless.
