Review by Spirit

Spirit i have to agree with @TwiceBitten, i thought the crowd was the worst part of the show, and that it had an effect on the band. During Boogie on Phish was doing some cool stuff (start stop, bass solos etc.) but the crowd would drown out anything that was going on on the stage.The music however i thought was solid enough to keep me focused through the weird vibes. 1st set was better than the 2nd IMO though there were missed opportunities a plenty. They were building some serious momentum and while the Velvet Sea was a pretty come down, but at that moment i didnt want to. The Bathtub that followed took me completely by surprise and it amazed me how quickly they turned the energy back up with what was my favorite song of the night. 2nd set is where the vibe really started to feel weird (could all be in my head, but this is what i felt). A huge Golden age and a pretty solid rest of the show, but it didnt touch any where near last night. CK5 dominated tonight and so did page. have to give this show a 3 because i dont think it ever really took off the way i know it could have/ should have.

favorites: Bathtub, Golden Age, Waves, 46 days.
