46 Days contains a reference to The Devil right? The mood shifted , the STORY changed mood, we got Buried Alive in some deep dark hole, we tried to get out through the Weekapaugh Groove, but alas no. Our Captor would not set us free and we are stuck up in that "loop" described 7/30/17 Harpua as it's just another "Day in the Life."
The devil revealed itself in Crowd Control on Tuesday, in fact. And it's undeniable that the death theme continues in Friday Night's See That My Grave Is Kept Clean.

If you have a theory about the overall story arc of the Baker's Dozen, I'd love to hear it.

Looking over the setlists, all I can gather is that on N1, our spaceship blasted off, we went into cryogenic sleep (inside the freezer), we've gone waaaaaaaaaaaay the f*** out into deep outer space (funk) (the music has been so so so so good), we had an epiphany about the finite nature of the entire universe (shaped like a donut) IMMEDIATELY before the arrival of the Monolith (2001, and I believe that placement is significant, also possibly signifying awakening from cryogenic sleep but not necessarily)... and then the Devil showed up and now here we are, Saturday morning, deep in a hole with our graves kept clean. Perhaps the finite shape of the universe is too much to live through...

If Tweeprise is the final song played of the BD (rather than ending N13 set 2, for instance), I fear we may remain frozen and asleep, flying unconsciously through the space of the donut for the rest of eternity...

That's my take on it, anyway. What's yours? 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.
