Review by DudeOfMyfe

DudeOfMyfe Phish were the Big Black Furry Spiders From Mars. I'm pretty sure that's some of the strongest singing Trey has done live ("It Ain't Easy" and "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide"). We all strive for him to hit us in the gut with his guitar, but props to him for laying it bare like that with just his voice. I was lucky enough to be there. When he said "give me your hands," not one person wasn't giving it up. It was church. A very soulful Phish. On the webcast (which has been taken down for copyright) you can see Trey kind of snarl in "Rock n' Roll Suicide." Like, "come on motherfucker, I'm gonna slay you with these lyrics and my voice! "Turn on with me!" "You're not alone!" That's literally what Trey does for a living. So him screaming seems it felt cathartic. Ziggy also was a perfect choice. An album about a Rock N' Roll savior, a symbol of power to bring people together, who comes down to help a world on the brink of destruction. Politics was a big thing everyone in that room was escaping from. Groovy Tube, 2001, and 46>Sand. And that Slave. I heard some folks wondering why they didn't play "Julius" with the singers for an encore. Maybe it was a union thing. By the way, Bowie At The Beeb (Best Of The BBC) has some loud, rocking versions of the Ziggy tracks that are worth checking out (such as "Moonage" and "Hang On to Yourself") and a burning White Light/White Heat.
