SkyTrainWand This show was AWESOME. Phish was on fire the whole night. Forget about the PA cutting out and you got yourself a wonderful evening of Phish.

1st set - One of the best modern Phish sets I've seen. Amazing song selection, an early Gin jam, my favorite Phish ballads (FEFY and Strange Design), some excellent exploration in Fuego and Cities, and another a capella Space Oddity!

Cities was SO good. The funk hose was on full blast and the crowd was lovin' it.

2nd set - Holy crap. Ghost > Light > Wolfman's. Can't get much stronger than that. Not to mention Ghost and Light takes up the first half hour of the set. There are a LOT of great musical moments in both of these jams. Wolfman's was pretty tight, too. Once they solved the PA issue, CDT happened and turned out to be a nice quick little burner. I think most of us just wanted music to happen and didn't care much for what they chose to play.

Considering the flow was interrupted, I think the band handled things well. Slave felt really, really good and had a great peak. I stayed for most of the encore, but had already heard it at Wrigley so I wasn't super interested, haha.

All in all, a very solid show. First time at Great Woods = Great Success!
