Outlive Sometimes I listen to a set or an entire show and think "that was great!" but can't pinpoint a single sonic standout; it just flows well from start to finish. Other times, like last night, there are several highlights (Wolfman, Petrichor, IAWITW, Maze, Piper, It's Ice, Bug) but the show as a whole seems disjointed, uneven. Phish is a rock-and-roll band. Last night, they seemed to lurch from "roll" to "rock" and back again. That they closed with Rock and Roll was, I guess, fitting. I thoroughly enjoyed attending the show, but aside from the aforementioned standouts (the last five minutes of Petrichor are pure bliss), I doubt I will ever listen to this show again. I will leave it to others to debate the merits of the fact that the two best songs of the night were from the new album.

Hoping they really bring the magic tonight. We are overdue for a spectacular YEM. 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.
