mattyb5000 A solid show through and through. Best show of the tour so far, with two well crafted sets.

Set I

Not a single miss during this set. Primarily all singles with little to no segues, the boys made it clear they were out to prove a point. It was a long dance fest, with rockabilly grooves coming in the form of a nice little jam on Back on the Train, Mound, and Maze. Highlights for this set are Maze for the shredfest Trey unleashes at the end, and again at the end of Walls of the cave, where Trey is shredding all over the song like a sword-wielding ninja.

Set II

The clear centerpiece of the show was the DWD>Ghost>Piper trio, featuring primarily type I jamming (though a little type II the 2nd half of DWD.) My personal favorite of the show was Ghost, with some nice rock funk going on. Despite that as the centerpiece of the set, this show will likely go down as the "Run like a Meatstick" show, as they were having a lot of fun with the wordplay in Antelope at the end of the set. Run like a meatstick out of control indeed!

YEM was another solid highlight for me, well played and more space funk. Mike takes some nice bass soloing using his bass envelope filter, which is always a fun time.

Loving Cup encore - I always love a cover to close out a show, just a nice way to tie everything together and leave everyone feeling good as they leave the venue.

I'll take a show like this every night of the week. Everyone's still waiting for some bust-out extended type II jams, but if they keep the energy high like they did tonight, type I is all we need to feel happy.

Phish on!
