dfro20 This show was amazing! My girlfriend and I were in the front row Page side right up on the rail, and we partied our asses off the entire time. Mound was definitely a throwback to the show two years ago when they had to stop mid-song for the weather, and I thought it was great they played it to make up for what happened last time. I would have liked Rift to be a tad longer, but Horn was a nice treat, as was Pebbles and Marbles. I think it's funny that they have played Possum at every venue this summer, and I would bet that they will continue to play Possum at every other venue they go to this summer, whether people want it or not. I thought the Cavern>Antelope segued extremely well, and ended the first set with the crowd begging for the second set to start as quickly as possible. Once the second set started with Rock and Roll the band seemed committed to having as little and as short of breaks as possible as they continued to play, stringing the songs together flawlessly. Every song and segue was perfect, especially when CDT dropped off and the first Wilson chord was strung...everyone went nuts. During Tweezer it seemed like Chris Kuroda turned the lights down so everyone good fully enjoy the glow-stick war going on in the pit. After Tweezer, Silent in the Morning served the purpose of calming everyone down after a solid rage fest that had been continuing for quite some time. I really enjoyed the whole show but I think my favorite would have to be Harry Hood. They nailed it, and I really enjoy Mike's heavily effected bass line in the intro, so funky and bubbly. I heard some people say that this show was too slow for them, but I disagree. Maybe it's just because I was in the front row, so everything was much more intense, but I think the band played phenomenally tonight. My only criticism is their choice of A Day in the Life as their encore. It seems that they have really been going for classic covers for their encores lately, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but I would enjoy an epic Phish original as an encore more so than a Beetles cover. Otherwise it was a fantastic show, I wish I was going to more shows than just the two Alpharetta shows this summer, if Phish ever comes back to Florida you can bet I will be at every show down here.
