Review by Wook_Whisperer

Wook_Whisperer A Friday night with Phish in my home state. This has not happened since 10/25/13, which was only my 2nd show. I went with my cousin, who's first show was at the Boston Garden in '92. We got in during the shredding Dogs. What a great way to get us going with Gin. FEFY, Strange Design both absolutely beautiful. Cities, wow what a jam. Jazzy, layered, colorful. Cool end to the set with Space Oddity. They came back with Ghost and I knew we were getting down this set. Fast tempo exploratory jam that led us into Light. It going right away with really dynamic full band interplay. You could tell they wanted to let this fully develop, and they certainly did. Inspired lines from Trey throughout kept it going. I remember just getting lost in the music, much like what happened numerous times at Magnaball last summer. Everyone around me too. I have no words to describe the PA issues other than to say it was a debacle and had that not happened, this show would have turned out different. The soundboard recording of Wolfman's shows a unique groove developing between Page and Mike, both on keys. We couldn't hear it at the time, but I remember seeing Mike over on Page side. The rest of the set was pretty good, but it no doubt was rushed, unfortunately. Slave was really good to close, and Walrus was the perfect encore. All in all I thought this was a pretty great show, for me anyway
