phishfillet My review is nothing scientific, just my thoughts and opinions on the show. Thanks

Pretty good first set overall. ‘you better believe it baby’ got in to a nice groove for a first time played tune, but the highlight of the set for me was a nice ‘Frankie’ into a sweet ‘Reba’, with the whistling for those that prefer it. The Bowie from this night was good, really good yet somehow laid back.

Set two, I love this YEM! Starts off a little flat, but by the time you get to the end of this 30 minute version you should be feelin’ it! And then you are treated to a first ever ‘Albuquerque’ which sounds beautiful.

And although the encore was nothing special, and I think most people don’t like to end the show on the soft side, both PYITE and Motel were nicely done.

flatbottomfrank Got to go backsatge after this show! Though over the years I had met everyone in the band before this was different. The show rocked! The guy sitting next to us lived in Dallas and his girlfriend worked at the Starplex, he had never heard of The Phish before but he went to every show at the Starplex and was excited to see a band he never heard. At set break he was floored! He couldnt believe there was a band this great and he never even knew their name. It was cool seeing someone get so excited!

DrWilson Great show for me. It was my first. I had listened to plenty of their music prior to the show so I knew what I was getting into there. What I had no idea about was the lot scene. I thought it was the coolest place on eart. ANd this was in Dallas, TX, mind you. Anyway, it was a life changing experience for me.

theghost This was kind of a hangover show. The heat and the security were oppressive.

The highlights for me were the covers...all great straightforward versions. The La Grange was particularly hot and the Albuquerque was very nice.

The YEM was a long hypnotic version but never really hit the next level.
