SmurfNugget Sooo... There's a lot going on at a Phish show. I look at a run of shows as an interconnected whole. The first night of Alpharetta, the band came to play. They split minds open with cosmic force. First Tube and Tweezer set openers are no joke! Darkness and light emerged. The first show was the wallop. The 2'nd night was the exploration of what emerged after night 1. There was darkness and patience, and some chasms were opened wider and some concerns were addressed. They were Waiting all night, Still waiting, Slaves to the Traffic Light. It was beautiful but also we were left a little uncertain. The Squirming Coil got away after all. Night 3 was the healing night. We needed it. We needed to KNOW we were sexy. We needed to feel the cosmic group orgy, ecstasy of the dance party that was laid out. If any night was able to sustain some flubs, it was night 3, because we needed that Tweeprize, sex sandwich. Just be happy you didn't get "Sexual Healing" because that shit could've happened too. ;)
I love what happened over these three nights. Night 3 wouldn't have happened without night 1 and 2. There is no doubt that the band is elevated when they execute perfectly but there is so much going on at a Phish show in terms of the band-audience interplay and the psych factor that you've got to let all that into the mix in order to TASTE what happened in a show or shows. There's a curveball for ya! 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.
