Review by ajcmixer

ajcmixer Excellent show. I keenly noted how Paige stated that Merriweather is one of their favorite places to play at and this performance to my ears proved that out beyond a Destiny Unbound... ;)

They were running on premium from the start but really loved the Moon/Twenty Years (a relatively rare 1st set placement)/Maze stretch and another scorcher of a SOAM.

DWD was scorched earth material by the time they barned-burned thru it, the Free felt a little more heartfelt and the BAtR a little more celebratory than usual tonight. BoaF flew to some out-there peaks, Trey served the milk with some really creamy licks and Architect continues to find its footing in the Phish catalog. And while the Mike's Song>Simple>Weekapaug Groove might look a bit standard on paper, the Mike's is the best one I've ever seen live in the 3.0 era and the Weekapaug was given the full-on treatment by the boys in the band. Waste made a welcomed return after an over 11 month absence and Trey successfully played Guitar God while Paige did his best Plant and though there is only one Plant there is only one Paige. And one Mike. And one Fish. And one more show on the East Coast before they depart for more southern destination. I think they are going to musically tear this old house down later on tonight. Can't wait...

Peace,
Alex
