The venue was brand new!! So clean..i thought to myself. they didnt know who they were booking when they got Phish. the ushers tried to keep people in Check but the smoke screen came out and the band jammed on. I really enjoyed the first set. The Star Spangled Banner was a nice treat!
Score: 1

looking at the setlist you can infer this was a solid night. The crowd was very energetic which helped get the band rolling with a 2001 opener that drove the crowd wild.
A solid fun funky bitch followed. This Tweezer is why you like Tweezer. again the fun the band is having comes through. Its a great showing of how much they listen to each other.Heavy riffs here. Fish 's drumming is of another species/level..
an average Theme follows but doesn't take away the energy. Trey thanks the crowd for a second time after this song. I've never heard that before.again you could tell They were having fun.
PYITE. always a good sign in my eyes. They nailed this one.
A raging Character Zero let them rock out . LOVE THIS SONG.
I love 1st set tweezer reprises.
perfect ya mar second set opener. Wasn't there but you tell the happy feeling and makes sense since they call State College Happy Valley in general lol

Chalkdust sees the boys get back to business.Trey and Fish are just locked and we benefit. gets pretty type II here. Not for the faint of heart
