Review by phortgang11

phortgang11 Context: Listened to N1 from my bed. My sister found an extra ticket so I left work early yesterday to meet my sister and dad at the show last night. Drove back at opening notes of Slave and was home by 2am. At work today with a full heart after last night. Phish continues to roll out a new product, and boy am I ok with it. This show flows extremely well. Set 2 felt like one long piece of music rather than ups and downs with “fan favorites” thrown in. The notes were pouring out of Trey tonight. He was sticking a ton to his natural tone (which sounds great this tour) which let to “twangy” guitar playing (in a good way) and no relying on effects to make it interesting (although they can be found in songs like Seven Below). No forced peaks and bright-light arena rock tonight. Instead if was exploratory jamming, buttery segues, and heartfelt, intentional playing and singing. The GotF material is (much to my surprise) the highlights of every night, and I don’t say that as a knock on the old material (stash was excellent tonight). Oh and that encore was a nice treat too. Had me STANDING UP and hollering from the hills.

“It’s love, it’s love, and it’s always love.”

Thank you, phish.
