grupp92 First off - thank you, phish phriends who were in line with us at Gate C from 7:15 until we were able to enter the venue. That scene was VERY sketchy, and could have devolved into a mob riot if we had not kept calm. 6th year at Dick's, and the venue decides to shut the side entrances and funnel everyone in through one gate? Why change it up? In the end, the natives grew very restless, so they just let let everyone in without a bag check and without scanning tickets - what a debacle! I was scared shitless during that last push - thankful that people behind us kept cool - but BOOOO on venue management.

So I had a blank space where my mind should be until I gained my composure - adrenaline, resentment at being in a risky situation that should have been a no brainer. First set didn't sink in, the mix sounded like mud to me until half way through Alaska, but I was outside until Undermind...

Nice new light show, though I am not convinced it was a needed upgrade. Kuroda is a genius and owns whatever rig he creates magic on.

Music in set II was excellent, and made it all worthwhile. Antelope to open solid. How about that aggressive Tweezer? First Bug at Dick's - and big tweeprise put a button on it.

Guess I will be heading inside WAY early tonight...
