headyburritos In my opinion...the weakest of last year's "Mid West" mini-run through Michigan and Ohio, but still a great show nonetheless. First set packs a great punch with some of the classics; AC/DC Bag, PYITE, Gin and Mound. Jibboo and Reba were perfect for this night as I was with a friend who had been chasing Reba and finally got one. Fee was really cool, I had been wanting to see Trey sing the verses through a microphone so that was special.

Second Set is where it was at, however. Carini into Tweezer was nuts. My first Carini, and it brought down the house. Tweezer erupted into a mega dance party as I remember everyone in my section going crazy when it started. Free is always an awesome feel-good song, and it definitely felt right on this night. The Crosseyed->Light->Boogie On is probably my favorite segment from this show. It was my first CE&P which made it special, and this was probably the show that first turned me onto Light. I had not been into it much until this point. Boogie On turns Riverbend into a funky funky dance party before the Phish cranks up the energy with Julius and then a spectacular YEM to close set 2. As much as I love "Loving Cup," this song has kind of worn on me. I feel like I've seen it too many times and that it's too predictable when they do play it. However, Cup into Tweezer Reprise always makes an excellent combination, and I always enjoy singing "Ohhhhh what a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz!" Over all, fantastic show and a great way to end the DTE > Blossom > Riverbend run!
