Review by BeAFractal

BeAFractal My first time at MSG. At the last moment I was joined by a very old friend and his two daughters due to s surfeit of tickets. My friend knew nothing of Phish's music, but his daughters we Phans, and had not had the chance to see them live.

I saw most of summer tour, Dick's, and Vegas. Last night was good, but not quite up to the level of Dick's and Vegas, those shows coming at the end of tours. Highlights for me: Free, Roggae, Halfway, Wolfman's. Chalk Dust Torture absolutely raged, but was circumscribed, as was much of the second set; it did not gel into a continuum. The Golden Age>Simple was not as exploratory as the combo in the same slot in Vegas; just not as good.

All in all, a solid show, but I couldn't help but have high expectations after Dick's and Vegas. Silly me. I can't wait for tonight. Yay! ;)
