Weissabi Don't resist a 3-set phish set

I wandered off and ran into a childhood neighbor that I hadn't see in 15 years somehow at this show, and saw all three sets with him and his group of friends, which shows the random happiness of what sometimes occurs.

Apt Prince to start, Ha Ha Ha is when we knew it was going to get weird. Possum is always welcome, and Cities was a great and smooth jam off the coast of Chicago with the skyline in view from a peninsula. I lost a bet with the Bowie/Maze drum opener, amateur hour.

The second set was good, never going to complain about getting back on the train and a Mike's Song. It was a Mike show for the next few with Theme from the Bottom and Weekapaug, Page hammered the groove. The rest of the set just felt right with Golden Age, Waves, Piper, and Slave to the traffic light. Really great finish to the set there, especially with Piper. Then Slave... such a good song to sink into. But the real surprise was next. Like many others, I had tuned out for the weekend. I was really enjoying the show, and felt good to see a full show given the night before. Trey closes Slave to the Traffic Light with "Thanks everybody, we are going to be back for another SET, so don't go away."

I think 50% of the crowd did a double take. WHAT? That was it, he did the slave thing and that is it, right? NO - they posted a three set show to make up for the night before.

Meatstick opener. Bunch of sickos. Wow.

So the show carried on. Birds of a feather, then a breather with Strange Design. Then Ocelot. I remember saying to my neighbor who I hadn't seen in 15 years that I would never hate on Ocelot after that performance. Light killed it, the lights are so much a part of that song, and all the songs, that words are such an incomplete review of any show. Hood allowed us all to feel super good and to get all glow-sticked out.

Closed out right with good times, then shine a light was the right song for such a long show. We felt shined on.
