Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads I think the Weekapaug Groove from this show is certainly a Noteworthy Jam. Then again, one of my favorite moments here is Ha Ha Ha. The energy is very good in this show, even on the chompy AUD on www.phish.in. Tweezer -> Cities is majestical, especially the last 30 seconds or so of Tweezer into the segue into Cities. Harry Hood takes some interesting detours during the composed portion... it's a solidly extended version, though maybe not Type-II in the same way as a few of the longer 2.0 Hoods. Simple is played at a somewhat slower tempo than its usual brisk stride. Finally, I'm not sure why Phish thought While My Guitar Gently Weeps was an appropriate song for the encore, as the show up 'til that point had been more energetic. That seems more like a song that would fit in an encore slot earlier in a New Year's Run than New Year's Eve night. All told, I rate this show 4 out of 5 stars.
