Review by floydthecpanzee

floydthecpanzee I agree with what everyone has said, great weekend opener, funny Phish joke with the "S" show - which somehow did not seem too forced. Even before I had figured out the "S" theme while knowing all the songs (yeah I know I'm pretty slow and a bit twisted at the time) I commented to my friend (who had also not figured it out either in my defense) at the end of the 1st set that they came to freaking play in Denver for Labor Day. I think it's pretty phenomenal to be able to say that your favorite band can play a show composed only of songs in their library that begin with the letter "S", with out too much shenanigans (i.e. some songs that they haven't played in a while but not full of random covers), and still put together a great show that actually flowed very well for the most part. But I digress ...

I wanted to comment on an earlier review stating that the only exploratory jamming in this show occurred during SOAM and Seven Below. Although I agree that those jams are great and some of the best of the night, the jam from Simple into Steam is both exploratory and pretty darn good as well. It's not very long but I would definitely recommend giving it a spin.

In the campground after this show, I think one of the common themes was "Phish is REALLY back." That sums up pretty well my entirely satisfied state of mind at the end of this show ...
