Review by pikepredator

pikepredator This is one of those shows that fades into the mists of many other shows I attended, a typically average phish show. nothing really stands out in the first set, hearing piper to open was cool at the time but didn't really go places. Piper Bag Suzy is a high energy way to open the first set but there's no real flow or progression to it. Suzy, Bag, Piper>JAM would've been way better. meat>Meatstick is anything but "meat" and the antelope closer came way too soon.

the highlight is the halley's>Tweezer. this halley's (featured during the 05/05/13 MJM) is an absolute RAGER. Just a massive wall of sound, getting completely away from the halley's structure into a fall 99 powerjam. high-powered but not necessarily memorable for anything other than the crazy energy. The tweezer that follows is similar - a notch above average but nothing to write home about. It has a rockin' build and then a mellow space outro. Bug>Fee is about as meaty as meat>meatstick. When hood came around it made the set feel as short as the first set. Some goofball antics and then typical closing show-closing action sent us to albany with high hopes.

some good moment in this show, but overall pretty uneven and left me wanting more.
