Review by CreatureoftheNight

CreatureoftheNight My wife and I both got to hear our favorite songs from our first shows. Mine was Shaggy Dog from 10-29-95 and her's was Roggae from 8-5-11. Amazing stuff considering it happened on our first show of 2012. I jumped and screamed for Shaggy and everyone looked at me like I was crazy. I never thought I'd hear this song again. Welcome to 2012, where anything is possible on Phish tour!

The band came out as hot as the temperature with a smoking Wolfman's. The rest of the first set gave us quite a lot of variety. Humor came from the Fishman tunes. A dog theme with wolves, shaggies and Jim. Fire came from Wilson, Llama and Bowie. The set was my first introduction to some of the play on words that would continue through the rest of the leg.

As solid as the first frame was, the real action was later in the evening. The Twist was just the kind of trippy jam I needed to get my year started. I've always wanted the Gorge Gin lick to get more exploration. Sand -> Roggae was such a silky smooth transition and the gooey jam will keep me coming back to this show in sight of My Old KY Home.
