Review by fluffhead108

fluffhead108 As I'm sure many reviews will testify in the coming day, this show doesn't exactly jump out as immediate must-hear Phish. If you're like me, and you try to listen to pretty much every show they play these days (and you should -- they'll be gone before you know it) then you'll no doubt find highlights, but all in all this is actually one of the weaker shows I can think of since Summer 2013 upped the proverbial ante.

First Set:
Take the Party Time and the Dirt. If you collect Lawn Boys then this one is worth grabbing, as Mike lays down his usual ditty quite well. But skip the rest, except maybe Bouncing, so that you can hear that ungodly screeeechhhh that Trey throws in before the outro. Not memorable for a good reason, but memorable nonetheless.

Second Set:
Things start well, and the entire 3rd quarter (46 Dogs thru Jibboo) is quite good. But the real highlights here, bizarrely enough, are the slow tunes. That doesn't make for a great concert (especially in 100 degree heat) but for posterity, it gives us lovely versions of Shade, Velvet Sea, and Waiting All Night. For my money, these 3 tunes are arguably the highlight of the show. That says something about the show, of course, but it also says something about those tunes. Give them a spin!
