kyleindeed And tonight’s episode of Don’t Miss A Sunday Show will be starring Tweezer Tweezer Repriser III .

Complaints of Phish playing too slow were quickly and swiftly answer.

S1
Llama. Lightning Bolt opener. HUAH
BBFCFM. Smack in the mouth.. HUAH HUAH
Meat. Seems to keep getting more stank on it w each play. Saw it Hartford 16 and this version was even more scrumptious.
Alaska. If the haters come out of this show (which I doubt) just looking to pick on lil ole Alaska.. then I always tell’em to relax.

Tweezer then pops up in yet another beautifully welcome S1, and a very fine placement indeed. This Tweezer didn’t f around and brought some heavy, expensive goods (w many lights flickering and vibrating taboot). BRAVO!
> Gin. Oh of course, why would we lose the momentum we’ve had the whole set? No No says Gin... fill the tub up with lots of toys and bathe like it’s your birthday. These aren’t the longest versions of these priceless songs but like most shows this week.. very tight.
> Curtain With. A later than usual placement here but not to be outdone by the 2 songs prior. This might actually be the highlight of the set if we had to choose. It was full of them.
> CDT FTW to close S1 and rock the new top off of MPP in splendid form.

S2 was poised for something to prove after the best S1 in awhile.

TWEEPRISE right out the gate.. Welcome Back!
NMINML, a welcome jammy platform to mold the freshness of this whole show.
> Twist. 2013 Revenge Tour continues and brings the WOOOOO’s out for some fun.
Prince Caspian not a vast exploration as many of late (Pitt Caspian namely) but still went very well in this set.
> Piper (another 2013 revival) that got good, like really really good and fast, from there we got our first tease of the prise to shortly come.
BDTNL. Ladies f’n love this song. My most seen Phish tune (9 total to Ghost, Hood and CDT all w just 7) and always a complete treat.
Speaking of Hood, a standout version to bring S2 to a close.
Encore sees Heavy Things, Bug soften our hearts for a minute before an anticipated and welcome final Tweeprise. I venture this is the first time Tweeprise has begun S2 AND ended a show. Who knows.

So like 2014, another Tweezerfest of sorts with tons of substance, moments, great playing and (most importantly). FUN!

Curveball will be great for all those attending and no worries about how well Phish will play. This was the best show of the week (barely edging out Raleigh, which isn’t easy for me to admit).

Looking forward to seeing the boys next year!!!
