Review by kyleindeed

kyleindeed I had said in my review of Gorge N3 that Melt was my favorite Phish song... more on that later.

S1 has tons of playful fun. General “Theme” for the night was to go intricate rather than predictable. Everything well played and great exchange between the band members, esp Steam and Theme. But the first set is made impressively better thanks to this Everything’s Right thunderous closer. Bravo!

It’s not often S1 has the longest jam of the night, but it does sometimes happen. No 15+ or 20+ jams to speak of, but they micro jammed the crap out of this set. Carini and SYSF were a decent compliment (albeit I wouldn’t have complained if they stayed within Carini during this time). My first SASS so a huge joy for me. They did SASS proper too and it brought the thunder here too. Even the Wingsuit and Waste had purpose as appropriate breathers between ragers.

I erupted when they broke out Melt. Jam length aside, I’ll take this Melt to my grave. What a riot and joy to experience 5 years after my previous (and first) Melt. Im bound to see as many songs from 2013 that I haven’t seen since. Zero got funky in S2 close ( a la BD Powedered Donut).

I had been asking for a Suzy for years. Hadn’t seen it since my first show (like Hydrogen last night). Brilliant!

If you value deep and extended jams, this isn’t your show. Tight, intricate, driven and well played music? Eat it up... Indeed
