Review by jadedforbin

jadedforbin Fantastic start to what is easily the best run of 2016 and one of the most consistent multi-night stands in all of 3.0 Phish.

Martian is great but short, sounded like they would jam it for a second. A few 97-era gems thrown in early, the show really kicked in when Trey wailed the end solo on "Home". Fabulous Steam, likely one of the better versions ever played, certainly in this unusual and unexpected slot, anchored the set and foretold of the greatness to come.

Then came "The Golden Age". Afterwards I mentioned to the folks I was hanging with that I love it when Phish does a jam so singular, so great, that by "Vegas Golden Age" you KNOW someone is talking about this version. It IS that good, all the praise is very warranted. For sure the jam of the year, and a 10 best of 3.0 moment. Personally, it was my best moment of 3.0. But with 75-100 relistens I can confidently say this belongs with the Dicks 12 Light, Randalls CDT, Atlanta15 Tweezer, Tweezerpants, Tahoe Tweezer and the other greatest of 3.0 moments. Very likely the best version of this beloved cover Phish has ever played. This Golden Age is better than entire shows by itself. It is as we say "on the level". #winning will never regret going to this run, was going to do just the last two but chose to solo 10-28 and 10-29 instead of missing 2/4, great decision!! :)
