Review by NigelTufnel

NigelTufnel Adore this show, my first indoor taste of Phish. First set treasures are found in Weigh (delightfully well played), Meat (extended jam and a NASTY take on the song proper), and an experimental Undermind. This first set has everything I could ask for. I treasure the song selection.

Set two features an above average Moma and a good RnR that gets to spaceland near the end (with excellent Kuroda work that doesn't translate well on tape...because it can't). Light is also finding it's legs in the live setting, and the band probably walked away from this jam pleased. A good, early take. Crimes of the Mind followed, and I thought it was an excellent call, listening back. Who knows when THAT song will come back...

I'm a sucker for anything Round Room, so when Pebbles started I was psyched. Quality version too. In the box...but still. Given how little they play it these days, I'll take any version I can get. 2001 was great to see for the first time, and Golgi/Cavern/Antelope was a good end to the set for 2009 me. 2012 me would probably be pissed and found complaining on this very website the following morning. My, how times have changed :)

Encore was excellent. Free Bird was both shocking and hilarious. Carini was also shocking but I loved the call, and I was delighted to hear Waste.

Overall, a fantastic two-set affair that left 2009 me mindblown. Don't miss Phish in Maine.

(actually, please do...it'll make it easier for me to get tickets)
