Review by HHCCCCAA

HHCCCCAA I don't like when people do like to talk shit about this show. It was sloppy at times, but I especially because I was there I frickin' love this show. The "Blister in the Sun" themed second set was mad fun, and the tune itself was one I had completely forgotten about after hearing it a few times years ago; it had completely vanished from my mind until that show and it was a huge sort of blast from the past for my memory musically. I've heard people say that "the only damn thing good about this show was 'Scent of a Mule'", and, needless to say, I disagree with them immensely. This version of "Mule"really is fun though, Mike's voice manipulation in sounding female never gets old. I'll never forget any show of any artist I've ever been to, but this one'll always hold a significant space for me personally. My buddies Kev, Jesse and I rode up to Troy, NY, on the 6th and stayed with another hometown buddy that goes to RPI and lives tehre year-round. We wanted to see the show on the 6th and all seemed to have the cash (surprisingly) to do so, but encountered a festive frat party our friend Zach brought us to so we decided to stay. Despite our hangovers we got up early the next morning and made our way to Saratoga Springs to pitch a tent at Lee's Park. I remember the campground being only a couple miles from SPAC, and had already been housing (or homing) a gargantuan amount of show-goers for the previous night or two. It was a great frickin' weekend, I'd be more of a music analyst, as some people are here on .net, but I like telling the story a little more I guess ... Not to say I don't know music intricately or consider myself able to review the show from a musically analytical perspective, but the experience itself is more important to me is all I'd say. I also don't like when people say they didn't enjoy the last song of the night because I really liked the "Sabotage" encore and was wildly pumped on the lawn there when it made its appearance. SPAC's a great venue for Phish, hopefully they'll make a return to the spot for Summer 2013; if they do, I'm nabbing tickets for the pavilion.
