Average Song Gap: 4.06

Performers: Trey Anastasio, Page McConnell, Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon

Notes: It is unconfirmed whether Fire closed the first set or was even performed at all. Trey referred to HYHU as the “Henrietta Theme Song.” After Page played several measures of the second HYHU in the setlist, Fish said “There’s one more verse to this,” and then they played the final verse of Love You. Fish also continued to play vacuum during the third and final HYHU of the set, which also featured Trey repeating “Henrietta!” over and over again, singing it along to the music’s conclusion. In response to a fan requesting more Syd Barrett after the last HYHU, Fish spoke the first few words of Bike. Trey teased Call to the Post before YEM (as Fish was returning to his drum kit after HYHU). Before Contact, Fish said “We would like to perform for you now the bass-player-is-taking-a-leak-song.” Fish then dedicated Contact to Paul Languedoc. Also before Contact, Page told the crowd that their bass player (whom Trey then referred to as “Michael Cactin”) would become 25 years old at midnight. Trey added that Mike would now play everyone a love song.

TheEmu I don't really have a lot of positive things to say about this show. The Reba is not very good as Page kind-of murders it, the Tweezer lacks polish and sounds repetitive and smashed together, Divided Sky isn't sharp, and the YEM just isn't my bag, baby. The banter surrounding Love You and Mike's birthday is entertaining, but that's about it. I'll quote Fishman from after Love You. "What the hell did pay money to see this for, anyway?" Two stars.

cjfphan21 Pen, Dinner, Bouncing, and Reba are all painfully slow, and I don't know what the hell Page was trying to do in the Reba jam, but it did not work for me at all. Fortunately things pick up a little with Possum; it even seems to be a hair slow, but I'll take it. Lizards is okay but could definitely have been better. Everyone seems to be trying to hard to make the Tweezer jam work. The deaccelerando isn't very good and the return tag on the end kind of sucks. Divided Sky is okay in comparison with the rest, but that doesn't say much at all. Keeping with the theme, Love You is painfully slow as well. YEM was alright, but along with the rest of the show it just wasn't that exciting, and I sense some frustration in the vocal jam. Contact is probably the best thing in this whole show. 2 stars.

Oh yeah, the audio quality pretty much sucks too.
