DollarBill This is the first show at the Memorial Hall, 50th of the tour as we continue the Midwest swing. The recording transfer on this one was not as good as the last few shows I've heard, but glad to hear it. No real sound problems for Paul, though Mike was a little weak again tonight.

This was an average Suzy to open up with as they get settled in to a new venue. Foam starts off fast but eventually smoothes out and gets very dynamic. Sparkle was good and Possum was rocking. I always love a Forbin's with great story, as usual. Mockingbird was a little weak at times. Chalk Dust rocked, Guelah was good, and then Caravan was kind of a surprise to hear again. Don't know what prompted that? Cavern was a little fast and loose to close up a pretty average set.

Trey gets on the acoustic for a good My Friend with a nice creepy ending. Rift's timing is still a little loose, but better. Sloth had some off spots. Pen was pretty solid and then FEFY seemed rusty. Then the Balls come out... Mike's was ok; nothing too great and the jam seemed really disjointed. Hydro was ok, just a few off spots. Weekapaug had a great jam. That was the highlight of the set. HYHU brings Fish out for a nice, funny Brain. Coil seemed rushed and Mike was weak in spots, but there was a great salsa style ending and of course Page brings it, until the recording was rudely cut! Sacrilege! Anyway, not a bad second set.

Mini bust-out with Page ripping into Bold as Love for a great encore. Then everyone gets shushed for an Adeline.

Just average to my ears tonight, Mike was weak and there were rusty parts here and there. Not to say that there aren't some good songs in there. I'm going with three stars to bring the average down a little.

We left Charleston, IL that afternoon in our friend Dave's minivan; St. Louis was about two hours away. We packed eight people in the minivan and partied the whole way. Normally I would never condone alcoholic road pops, but this time, a.) it wasn't my minivan and b.) I wasn't driving.
We got into St. Louis, found the theater, and parked. There were still tickets on sale at the box office; the place was empty. When Phish finally came out onstage they opened with "Buried Alive", which was awesome. Other first set highlights included a "Stash" > "Kung" > "Stash" and my first "Horse" > "Silent" and "I Didn't Know".
It was the second set though that just was over the freakin' top. The lights went down for Set 2 and the boys hit their mark. Trey stepped up to the mic to say that his friend Roger was here and wanted to come out to ask a question. Roger came out with his girlfriend and asked for her hand in marriage. She said "yes" and the band opened with an energetic "AC/DC Bag". "Just like Roger"....he's a crazy little kid!" Other tasty nuggets in this set included "My Sweet One", "Tweezer", "Mound" and a smokin' "YEM" > "Spooky", but the highlight came from an "Oom pa pa".
My first "Harpua", with Doors and Jetsons teases during Trey's story. "Poster walked on down the hall! Came to a door and said"...".... I want to go for a walk". It was so great. After a set-closing "Runaway Jim", an excellent encore included "Lengthwise", "Contact" (for Roger and Jen on the road of life), and "Tweezer Reprise".
After the show I went out one of the side exits. Their buses were parked right in front of me. As I stood there I looked at the guy standing outside the bus, his pants rolled up like knickers, big hair, drinking a mimosa. He looked familiar. Then I realized it was Mike Gordon. I walked over to him, introduced myself and told him what a great show it was. He said, "thanks".
