Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads Ye olde Lushington show! I, for one, am not tired of the spelling shows. That said, the actual content of the L.U.S.H.I.N.G.T.O.N. portion of the show is well played if not necessarily above average-great, energy factor notwithstanding (I say this as someone who wasn't there and only has the LivePhish SBD.) I'm always glad to see Jen and Nat make an appearance. 46 Days is pretty groovy, but the Simple > Ghost has some of the propulsive energy that reminds me of jams like the 8/17/97 (The Great Went) Bathtub Gin, the 6/28/00 Gin, etc.; it's a feeling of transcendent purpose that pervades the listening experience, and though I think those kinds of jams are mostly precipitated by Fish's drumming, everyone has to be equally yoked or it won't have quite the same effect. The Simple in particular is one of my go-to 3.0 jams, and reminds me that "they've still got it."
