@FACTSAREUSELESS said:Understand that after Mann1 I was gushing about the band's cohesiveness and the tightness of their playing.Look I'm the first one to jump to the land of THE BIG PICTURE when a day in the life of Phish is not so sunny, but this is a public forum and there's nothing "hateful" about expressing disappointment over unmet expectations.. I haven't listened to this show yet, but embarrassing seems like potentially a bit of an overstatement. We're you at Coventry? Now THAT was embarrassing. A cpl flubbed songs in a show seems like nothing after that musical debacle.
The tour has been average so far, and has resembled early 2011 more than the last 3-4 years. That's just the facts.
Yes there were some moments, but Phish always has moments in every show.
They sucked last night.
Nothing worked the way it should have. Watching it felt like that moment when you invite your parents to the final night of your leading role in the high school play only to trip on a mike cord as you walk onto the stage and break your nose. It was embarrassing.
It was more than embarrassing, it was cover-your-eyes-awful, go-to-bed-early, lie-awake-thinking-about-the-future-of-humanity embarrassing.
These feelings only happen when you're in love and your girl refuses to kiss you goodnight. That's how it felt.
When Phish wows us we say so, and when they drop a deuce on camera somebody needs to say so. This review was right on. There was nothing else to say about it.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
