Peaches gets things going in the second set before a three song segment of grade A Phish. The segment begins with a huge and exploratory David Bowie, which clocks in at 26 minutes and includes some extensive audience participation during the jam. The hauntingly beautiful Yerushalayim Shel Zahav fits naturally after the monster Bowie, and the magnificent Slave really seals the deal on this great run of songs, before moving on to some "lighter" stuff. After Poor Heart and Julius, Mike takes the lead with a couple bluegrass tunes, which I always enjoy. Adleine, YEM, and Golgi are average, but this show has already cemented itself as a 5 star show in my eyes.
Highlights- Split Open and Melt, Maze, Cavern/Lawnboy mashup, Bowie thru Slave.
