HarryHerringSuch a wildly different set structure than just 2 nights ago. I think this is where the creative meats are being set up, for gods sake they can pull close to 300 songs outta their ass at any given time and perform them flawlessly. Its almost to stupid to think about anyone being able to do that and then to actually attempt to make each song sound somewhat unique EVERY time you play it must be completely draining at times and yet every time i see them, this year especially, they seem to be having so much fun. Whether or not their going deep into songs or just firing them off one after another each set has a unique feel and the boys seem to be stoked that the crowds are into it and each gig this tour features some weird little part that makes it stand on its own. The 2nd set last night was ridiculous, most spontaneous YEM ive heard in a while, the Ghosts, R & R's (each one this tours been a great vehicle for them) and all the narrations were just such a treat to see and hear. It's clear that the boys have their own agenda this tour and that even when they drop an egg on us or chop Tweezers head in 2 with a rusty knife (alpharetta...) they can still do a complete 180 and melt our fucking faces 48 hrs later. Ups and downs have always been a part of bands who had the balls to try something new and interactive every night, sometimes we pay the price but more often than not we're rewared with a totally unique experience. Even when the bands in "nostaglia" mode or flubbin' shit the crowds and the friends are still worth the price of admission, phish is a bonus. Cant wait for Virginia.....and as long as their in request mode someone needs to get a sign that says Bathtub Gin > Stash. Fuck askin for song I want my dreams to come true dammit!!
Score: 2
