the wedge is a really nice summer time/chill opener. it is well played here and the nicu afterwards works well too. then they go into a really nice first set sneaking sally. it is not the most jammed out version you will hear, but it's still a winner. the guyute that follows smokes. they really nail this one. as they bring back home, trey sounds particularly evil. fikus and farmhouse provide everyone with a quick breather but a rocking possum and a bonus sweet jane send everyone into set break all smiles.
i really like cavern as the opener. you don't see that one every day. also, it works really well before this very exploratory 2001. this one is a nice long funk exploration. page is really good in here. i would say this is a contneder for top 3 of the year. it doesn't hold a candle to 12/29, but hey, what does? they sneak in a surprise tela before slipping into a very strong piper. this one is a barn burner. in fact, at this point in time, i would say it's the best they'd played this song. trey is smoking. sexual healing and all that is pretty funny, before a very sharp hood closes down the set. then there is the encore. who saw this coming? phish nails sabotage to the wild excitement of the crowd. good call!
i just love the way this show flows. it is a great road trip play. if you don't have this one, get it! both sets are awesome.
