Review by headyburritos

headyburritos Ah...my first show of the Summer 2011 tour. Drove up to Michigan from Athens, OH and made it to lot just in time to pound a beer or two before heading into the venue. I had a small but fun crew of 4 for this show, which was at a venue I'd never been to. We were all inside the pavilion so that was nice.

This was quite the birthday show for Cactus. First set was packed with jams that highlighted Mike. I really enjoyed the CDT in this first set, it took on a weird, slower tempo but it was great nonetheless. Even though the first set is a good one, the second set is what this show is all about.

The DWD to open set two was phenomenal...really just a great, out-there version. Follow that up with a seamless segue into Fluffhead and you've got a knockout second set opening sequence. Looking back at this setlist, there really isn't a dull moment in there. After a well-executed Fluffhead we get a high-energy David Bowie followed by a soothing Waste to bring it back down for a bit. 2001 is always a dance party, and Cavern never disappoints in the closing slot. GTBT was my first Phish-Zeppelin cover and it was killer. Being only my third Phish show this was quite the treat. I had no idea what was in store for me on this weekend, but night one at DTE was a good start!
