Review by ThingsOnMyMind

ThingsOnMyMind Can't I live while I'm young...
My first show, I was 18. Fresh outta high school.
Scored Pavs on the on sale, sold out immediately.
Wasn't exactly sure what to expect.
To my delight, I was forever changed.
I had gotten IT, and was hooked forever on...

Chalkdust came out to bring the heat, a blistering, rocking kick off and the perfect lyrics to match my state of being. (not mind, although that played a part in the whole experience).

Fee's lyrics were flubbed, Trey jokingly needed some help "knowing the words backstage". As some sort of consolation, the end jumped right into a wavy, bouncy, spacey style, free form exploration. Eventually fizzling out after about 5 mins. This was the first significant jam witnessed.

Wolfman's jumps right into the rockin' funk. Trey showcasing a little machine gun, Page tearing up the Clav, Mike dropping bombs, and Fishman adding a lot of splash towards the end. Never really leaving the song's proper. But brought the type 1 heat.

Guyute pretty straight foward, solid version with a few flubs. "I'm bouncing like a newborn elf, I can't remain inside myself"

My Sweet One my first glimpse into Phish's bluegrass tendencies.
"Naaaaaaaammmmmeeee"> right into the next tune

46 days 6:58 of straight rockin' groove

Lizards minor flubs here but a great version, not to be seen by myself again until 12/31/13

The Wedge just a solid version

Strange Design my first and only, still holds dear to my heart for many reasons

Tube there was a little extra mustard on this one, took a turn that we don't really see these days "Bruuuuce"

"Well, we might as well play this one"

First Tube closed the first set in the Jedi fashion a celebration of the prior set. Some great machine-y guitar work here and slight moments of peaking bliss. Mike holding down the bassline

Sand ... wow. Probably one of the reasons I am here today. 22 min-ish monster to kick off set 2. Yes.

Suzy was thrown in after sand. Also a pretty straight forward version. Page's grand piano sings while mike is dropping the oink bass bombs

LxL captivating, Trey ate his Wheaties that morning

Horse> Silent some 2nd set slow down and bliss

Sugar Shack Debut, Mike's funky weirdness with Trey's licks and pages Clav

Zero Trey ripping some 2.0 like guitar tones and honing in on the rockin' guitar groove

Tweezer huge jam #2, some funky shredding all around. Something the likes of earlier tweezers. Hose- style

Encore

Joy Trey showed off his new album titled song, soulful and joyful yet sad and depressing given the context.

Bouncing was very bouncy :)

I will forever hear the >
Antelope stretching a bit here, still probably one of the best of 3.0

Insert obligatory Tweeprise to cap the night off with a bang.

My life would never be the same...

You could tell they were playing with purpose, trying to find themselves again, and pushing the envelope to the extent that they could at the time. You can here some rockin' 1.0 type stuff and some bluesy- spacey 2.0 tones.

This show has it all imo
