This show is an absolute classic from the grand Somerville Theater. This was my first chance to see the Aquarium Rescue Unit, and I was absolutely blown away. But on to Phish"....The first set is highlighted by "TMWSIY" -> "Avenu" and a sick "Tweezer". 1991 was a pretty good year for "Tweezer", come to think of it. But games are always won in the second half, and the same holds true for Phish shows. The "AC/DC Bag" -> "Curtain" -> "Sloth" that opens up this set is incredible if only for the transitions. "AC/DC" just melts away and "Curtain" emerges right tin stride. And the "Curtain" -> "Sloth" baton swap is the mind blower. "Curtain" fades out and "Sloth" fades in with astonishing power. I love this transition. We were also treated with a great Jim and Tela, not to mention the "Harpua" with Jimmy watching the "Bruins kicking the Penguins' ass!" Get this show. I guarantee you will love it.
