Review by Fluffhead_09

Fluffhead_09 Well, ladies and gents....Phish's triumphant return to Austin was a marked improvement from their 2015 showing, and overall, this show did not disappoint.

Short version: slightly above "average great" territory, some gems in both sets, and worth your time to give a listen.

Set 1: the earliest Light has been played since its inception, and this early curveball was thoroughly enjoyed. Light/Moma/Funky and Theme are clear Set 1 highlights, and surpass the re-listenable watermark. Halfway to the Moon was surprisingly delightful as well....oh, and jaded vets: stop complaining about The Line, even if your concerns are justified.

Set 2/Encore: Everything's Right continues its run as a powerhouse jam vehicle, and DWD, while predictable, takes us to expectedly unexpected places. Steam and Wedge were well executed, and a classic Antelope set closer + Loving Cup singalong had the crowd feeling satisfied.

Even if not an all-timer (or all-tour) show, all that attended were happy with the result. We're lucky to have such an incredible band and community to take this all in. Happy tour!
