KilgoreTrout7This was my first Phish show ever and I'm happy to say the band lived up to, and thoroughly exceeded all my expectations. It was a great show. I think the fact that it was Mike's birthday may have factored into it. It was obvious they were having a blast onstage, which really got the crowd going.

Wolfman's and Funky Bitch were a great choice to start with and the rest of set 1 was very strong. The spontaneous Tela (a request via beach ball thrown onstage) was unexpected but refreshing, though not as strong as everything else (probably because the band wasn't expecting it).

Set 2 was AMAZING!! The 25min DwD -> Fluffhead > Bowie were flawless. I was never really a fan of Fluffhead until I heard it played live. It had so much energy!! The Fluff's Travels extension of Fluffhead is a great piece of music in my opinion, and they played it well that night. The rest of set 2 was excellent.

The encore of GTBT was well-played, although I'm sick of that song in all honesty.

Overall it was a great show. I think I've re-listened to it about 10 times and am still blown away. My first Phish show turned out to be arguably one of the best shows of 3.0 and by far the best show they've played so far this tour. It was an amazing experience, and I'll never forget it.
Score: 3
