tennesseejac Incredible show! Trey must have heard some of the negative reviews from last nights show and wanted to show Texas who’s boss.

It doesn’t happen too often but I think I like the first set of this show better than the second. Tube was a great way to open the show and it was pure heat until the cool down with I Didn’t Know. For me the first set highlights were Steam, Stealing Time and The Squirming Coil. Steam has some monster riffs that just make me shake my head in amazement and this Stealing Time is dark and nasty (in a good way). Divided Sky is always special and the end of this one is awesome, but Im glad they decided to play one more to end the set. Page was pure genius with this Coil. Love it!

Can I live while I’m young? That is one of my favorite questions of all time and I think everyone that screams this question during Chalkdust really feels it, especially Trey. When they start the 2nd set with CDT you know they mean business. This version has a beautiful quiet segment that only means they are going to turn things around and pick it back up. Great version.

I don’t think Trey meant to leave Simple for Silent in the Morning, but he got caught on that Silent sequence during the Simple jam and just couldn’t let go, so he gave the nod to Page to start it up.

Im not a big fan of The Line especially during the middle of the 2nd set, but sometimes people build you up just so they can knock you down. And, then to end the set we get a triumphant Harry Hood (which is still my all time favorite Phish song). This version can easily bring a tear to your eye. Perfect way to end a 2nd set or any set for that matter.

Encore Connection was a little rough but First Tube made up for it.

The boys are rolling strong and I think it will only get better. See you in Atlanta! (at least the 2nd night) where I will hopefully get a killer Fuego because EVERYONE GETS A FUEGO!
