Review by New_be_in_92

New_be_in_92 I got completely hooked up Sunday night. My buddy Corey insisted that I not miss this Sunday at Randall's. A truly great guy I only met last year who plays lead in a LI band called Moondawgs took care of my ticket ( THANK YOU :) ) Chilled briefly in the lot then cruised into the show and took in the great atmosphere. I had the honor of going to the Hartford Civic Center show last fall, but I hadn't been to this kind of Phish party since Camp Oswego many many moons ago. The beer of the borough's was right up my alley. I think I'll go with the Staten Is wheat as my winner in a very tough competitive field of great beer. Kudos to all the brewers! Then the other 'brewers' took the stage and started me off so right with 'Sand'. We positioned ourselves to the left of the sound tent where I enjoyed my first 'Winterqueen', I like the guitar playing in this song. Then smiled HUGE with everyone else for that 'REBA'. 'We're not worthy!" 'BOAF' is a personal fav, so happy & I was losing it . 'Water In The Sky' was a command by the brewers to hold the rain till later while this potion fermented some more. 'Possum' was a blast as always, and mid-set too. Then I ran into some great old friends from my childhood as the 'Runaway Jim' started up. So glad I got to see them during this song, it made our reunion that much sweeter. Then we 'Bounced @', got stuck in a 'Maze', and F'n 'Split Open and Melt'ed big~time on the concrete to the side of 'The Chairman of the Boards'.
{Set Break} I walk really fast, so I found myself back at the Beers of the Boro's quicker than the 2 step fwd & 1 to the side staggerers @ me ;)
2nd Set... WOW! 'CDT' never ended, I can't believe I'm hearing this! Actually, yes I can believe it, it's a Sunday on an Island, and these ALIENS are firing off lasers into all our skulls! The next thing I know I'm going toward the 'Light' with Carolann.
"Yes children, come into the light! This island is cleaned."
A very phriendly crowd anchored down with numerous blankets let me pass to the front. I got pretty close for that beautiful 'Tweezer' - closest I'd been since being up front at Camp Oswego. I was really happy they let a big old guy pass to the front like that. I met some very heady pholks who greeted me KINDly - thank you very much :)
We swayed and hugged, and I totally got in the friggin' freezer! I 'Waded' with my new phriends in the 'Velvet Sea' for a while, and eventually made my way out during 'Sing Monica'. I got back to my original spot for a glorious 'Slave'. Yeah, that's how you do it!
I definitely felt like I was riding 'Backwards Down The Number Line' all night, and then I had my Tweeprise!
We got off the island and onto Manhattan in short time actually. All the way to midtown and into the room before the rain hit. We popped a few more brews and couldn't stop discussing the show. Thank you Phish for another great time!
