fhqwhgads Like the previous night at the same venue, this is a very strong setlist, in my opinion. Tweezer is the feature presentation, but I also highly recommend the Sand. It's neat that the whole second set is connected by >'s. Better if it had been ->'s, but that doesn't happen all that often anymore, and for good reason, because as a musician myself I know that it's challenging to weave an entire set together without planning it ahead of time, which Phish seems determined not to do anymore, but which I think they might actually benefit from. I'm not saying to micromanage every aspect of the jams ahead of time, but just that maybe it would make sense at least once in a while to have a comfortability with the material and its sequence before coming on stage. For one thing, it would probably result in fewer ripcords, and even if it didn't, the ripcords would be more interesting because Mike, Page, and Fish would have to think on their feet to react to Trey pulling the rug out from underneath them.
