nichobert That PBR review may be the most pointless review I've ever read, put the booze down and let your mind be freed by the Stash

Too cool for the noob friendly encore, too drunk to pay attention to the show. Sweet

Phil and Friends (w/ Trey and Page)+ Classic TAB (tour debut) = 6 months of no Phish...

The entire show from note one was surreal; bomb drops concluded every 1st set number, but for Maze when they musically bantered our minds.

My Left Toe from the Siket Disc debuted at this show. Familiarity with the album could best describe the vibe from this 2nd set; and one word: Catatonia

No covers were played.

Each set and the encore led off with a cut from Lawn Boy.

BassPlayer One of the most beautiful Stash jams i've heard, appropriate as a soundtrack to a romantic candlelit dinner. Great Mike bombs in Free! We all got drenched in a pre show storm, BTG was a perfect choice.

metawhy This is the Phish sound I love. They come out after a rain shower in GIN, this one starts out slow and then Trey just adds layer of layer of gooey, stringy texture to the song. It is that 1999 tone that is so beautiful and thick. The song winds down, and the band plays a few newer numbers, very patiently, with some odd noises in the dead air between the songs, like new toys being sounded out. The Maze is amazing, not a raging one, but a beautiful expose on tension and release, complete with a bathtub gin jam.

Set II gets off to a great start with Coil > Free. This Free needs to be heard to be believed. Like the version on 7-31-98, this groove is THICK. Also of note in set II is the debut of Bug and My Left Toe, an ambient masterpiece that sounds so good slicing through the Kansas sky.

Check this show out when you have some time to sit down and listen closely, it will be rewarding.

ADAWGWYO I was there. I have to agree that I don't have many memories of awesomeness or face-melting music. I drove to the show last minute from Laramie,WY(UW!!!) I blew a tire about 4 hours out on I-70 and while changing the flat a Hi-Po pulled up behind me, got out and asked what the problem was. I told him I had a donut/spare and was ok. He got in his car and away he went. I remember only having a little reefer on me, but still sweet when he rolled on. Amber and I showed up to the lot with maybe an hour to chill. We got drunk on PBR cans and stumbled inside.

It's your typical summer shed. No covered seating that I recall. I remember being happy about the Gin opener; Tube was cool(although nothing stellar) BOTT was fun and I knew at the time, that I didn't know it. That's about it for musical memories from this show. Bouncing> Sample Encore= "Let's go get a burrito!"

Sidenote: The girl I was with had seen some shows(Spokane-Portland 96) but wasn't a regular. Anyways I mentioned we were rockin the "car-temperature" PBR cans in the lot pre-party style. Well we were CHUGGING em'. So we're dancing sometime in the middle of set I and although it was an over-cast day in Kansas, it is still HOT and HUMID. She stops and says "I need to go to the bathroom." And I'm like(casually) "Yeah, we'll go at set break." Well what she meant was is she needed to throw up. Well, she made it to set break and bless her, she mad it to the tarlette to excercise them PBR demons.

Less than 2 stars.

Score: -2
