Review by Flavaham

Flavaham I spent the last three days chasing Monica. I thought she might be the S in Lushington. I thought Bowie would have segued nicely into it on Saturday. Maybe out of Slave for an amazing second set closer? I thought all hope was lost late Sunday until they started into Mike's. There's NO WAY they don't go Mike's>Monica>Weekapaug here, right? Although a girl was mentioned in the song inserted where Monica obviously belonged, it was no Monica...My last hope was an E: Monica>Tweezer Reprise. That's gotta be it. Nope. Alas, my search for Monica was fruitless. The glaringly obvious omission of Monica is one of the biggest disappointments in 3.0 and perhaps all of Phish history. Bands will form based on this tune, calling themselves "The Singing Monicas." Generations will be shaped and Monicas will be played to celebrate our fallen friends. For my friends who may be reading this, I hope that the music at my funeral reads as follows:

Sing Monica>Amazing Grace>Sing Monica

As for the actual show - Pretty much sick as hell! Wombat was a definite first set highlight along with the other Phish tunes they played, specifically the ones performed by Phish. The amount of arrows in the second set made me extremely happy.
