ProfJibboo If this show was an average show, than it's more of at testament to how the band has raised the bar for what we consider an average show.

In this fantastic tour, everybody gets an exploratory jam! Roggae and the underrated heavyweight of 3.0 - wolfmans brother - carried the early first set that was a song-heavy before a Stash and Suzy lead us home. The rest was nothing remarkable but flowed well and the set started particularly upbeat and joyful with the sample/Moma/wombat combo.

The second set trifecta of Carini - quite possibly the best carini this summer after it's banner year in 2013 - ghost and steam was the perfect blending of high octane phish and chill phish, type II phish, angry phish and happy phish, old phish and new. The segues alone will keep this trifecta of jammy bliss in the forefront of best segues on your discussion. Sing Monuca shined once the music picked up in energy and provided the perfect breather.

There was only one reason I was sad when it initially looked like it would be a no-cover summer...2001. There are some places late in second sets that you can just feel in your bones that a 2001 is just what the doctor ordered. This 2001 was a classic example of perfect placement,arising out of a off-the-main path Light and sandwiched with a simple splendid Harry.

I see the forum's early response is that this was an average show for the tour. The carini/ghost/steam disagrees from a jam standpoint and llight/2001/Harry disagree. If this show was indeed average, than "average" has a high standard this tour.
