pmc2kd The end (until SBIX) of a nice 2011 run of shows for me. Camden had been an OK show and I was sick as a dog for it. So I managed to recover a bit and trek down to MPP for two final shows - no calling in sick for Phish!

Set I opened with Daniel. Nice and fun. Rarity points for all.

Bag gave us a second "opener". I love it always.

Ocelot was pretty good. Nice little jam, and I thought the 2011 versions of this song all seemed to be pretty solid.

Access Me and Vultures were both great to catch. Nice rare songs. I've caught better Vultures, but still great.

Wilson>Sand was my favorite part of the set. Really rocking and then an excellent fun Sand groove. This was maybe the show highlight for me?

Roses was good and had a little outro into Reba.

Reba was pretty well played and had a nice, but very typical jam. Not the a version I go back to, but still was awesome at the time.

On Your Way Down was another cool rarity.

Antelope closed us out. Nothing super special about this - other than a nice tease.

Overall Set I: This was a pretty good set. I really dug the Wilson>Sand and the song choices were all good. Toss in a Reba and I was pretty happy, despite no real standouts.

The second set kicked off with BOAF, which wasn't particularly notable.

Tweezer was similarly non-descript (in the canon of Tweezer that is.)

Horse>Silent was kind of a crummy choice up next.

Waves had a nice jam within the general song structure, but nothing post lyrical refrain - in the box. A good song though.

Chalkdust was a fun dust up, but aside from the usual energetic run through it was by the book as well.

Rock and Roll was long, but not particularly good in my mind. They gave it a shot though and it got some weird spacey treatment. Normally I'd love that sort of thing, but this one didn't feel connected. Still A for effort.

>Albuquerque was awesome to hear.

Piper had a moment or two, but wasn't anything to get to bothered with.

Wading>2001>STFTFP>Suzy was a run through some songs. No reason to note much about any of 'em.

Encore was Show of Life and I heard this one too many times in 2011. Tweeprise was typical greatness.

Overall set II: I liked set I better, and I don't say that often. Not much to seek out. Still a good time, and I'm glad they gave us some good effort in the R & R through Piper segment.

2/5 kind of below average.
