Review by MoPhish

MoPhish First night of Dick's 2014 and they came to play! Llama right out of the gate set the tone, not only for the evening ahead, but for the entire weekend. Llama was followed by a solid Undermind and Stash. Neither were particularly noteworthy in my opinion but both were very well played and kept the momentum going. Halfway to the Moon provided the first breather of the evening as well as the first Fuego tune of the weekend.

First set continued with IDK (unfortunately this was only vacuum of the weekend) and a personal favorite, Nellie Kane. What can I say, I like the bluegrass stuff. Since I'm not going to review every song played I have to skip forward to my personal highlight of night one which was No Quarter! Holy shit this was awesome! Only the seventh time Phish has ever played this one and they nailed it! Page side, rage side! A fun and energetic (if brief) Ha Ha Ha followed and set one ended with a horny Suzy!!! What a great start to the weekend.

The hands down highlight of set two was undoubtably Simple. Long, fun jam full of energy

Although I'm sure several phans will disagree but I personally liked the placement of Wading in the Velvet Sea sandwiched in between Harry Hood and Antelope. Again, it was a nice breather before we all got to run like antelopes. Character Zero was a fitting, if predictable way to end night one.

I missed the first two years at Dick's and after attending last years run, vowed never to miss another Labor Day weekend run in Colorado. Night one lived up to my expectations and there were still two more nights to go.
