ThousandDollarQuestion This show was great, just...great.

solid first set across the board. suprise opener in Llama, was good to see the boys acknowledging the kids with the sign (little did we know that the next night they would acknowledge the chick with the FYF sign). was hoping for a Roses in Raleigh, and got it! The Moma was the highlight of the set for me, really got my feet moving. Cavern closing the set was perfect, really kept the energy high into the setbreak.

second set was a fun one, was with some first-timers, and seeing thier faces light up under the glowsticks during BDTNL was ... heart warming. good times rolled on with an energetic Halley's Comet. Light seemed a little forced, but once they got into it, it was all smiles, good spacey jam here. then going back to the chorus of Light seemed again, forced. energy stayed high with Fluffhead, and the Travel's section was played very very well. Have Mercy was excellent, good song selection as the pre-show music was Toots and the Maytals (my favorite reggae band personally), and it chilled the mood, everyone around me, including myself had an ear-to-ear grin (could have been the herb too, you know how reggae hits). Light up rocked, the jam, at the time reminded me of a raging Chalkdust jam. Free is always good, love how Mike drops bombs in this one (and it was fitting as we saw Mike cruising shotgun on a golf cart in the lot earlier). Wading set up Squirming Coil well, and much to our suprise, Coil did NOT go into Loving Cup (we thought Page teased it), SUZY!

- also it was nice hearing the Coil without someone hitting Page's grand with a glowstick during his solo (see/hear the 2003 Raleigh show)

epic encore, with my limited Phish experience (8 shows if you call Bonnaroo 2 shows and Fest8 3) this was my first Boogie, and i couldnt have asked for a better way to get it.

show is a good listen, band is tight.
