Review by TwiceBitten

TwiceBitten I thought that was the best 2nd set of the tour so far. Much like 8/1/17 aka Maple aka Happy Birthday Jerr Bear (we miss you down here!!!) this was a set that appealed to the trifecta of heady phan archetypes (the head-trippers, the dance freaks, the centered buddhas) and one that I feel will be just slightly underrated by the fanbase for years to come. Mike's Song went type II out of the first jam and never returned to end the song proper. Next up we get some really fresh Phish with Trey riding these dark gnarled melodies over the broken funk of the Ghost jam. Big Red shows the haters who's boss with back to back type II spiritual new age AA bangers before reminding us that the Circus is indeed in town and closing out strong with a faster than usual (for 3.0) Weekapaug. One for the record books, listen to set II straight through. First set highlight was Wolfman's, though Kill Devil Falls briefly flirted with the dark side, Theme shredded as per usual and playing the Velvet Underground well never be considered "a bad idea".
