MiguelSanchez i just gave this show a 5 star review, but i have to admit, it was only for the tweezer. this bad boy is a monster. this is the best tweezer they played since '94. trey is all over this one, and the funk 49 teases are a mix of hilarious and power house rocking. the rest of the boys aren't slacking on this one either. as for the rest of the show, there is some good solid playing. taste is well played. funky bitch wails, and you have to love the 2000 moma dances. outside of a nice mango song and a solid jibboo, the rest of the second set after tweezer does not do much for me. a nice yem encore, on the other hand, does.

Incredible Tweezer!!! The sudden emergence of Bouncing is superb and invigorating. I like the flow of set I, interesting choices. Axilla starts the energy at 10. Taste keeps the energy going and then the always sublime billy breathes appears. I particularly enjoyed first tube from set I. As already mentioned, Tweezer is the highlight of set II and the whole show. The rest of set II features great playing, but pales in comparison to the Tweezer. The flubbed Japanese lyrics for Meatstick was indeed humorous, and the YEM encore is just icing on the cake, and is a good way to end on a high note for a high energy crowd. Overall, great show, great energy. I wish I weres there (kind of a dumb statement, considering I wish I weres at all phish shows). If you listen to one thing from this show, make it the Tweezer and bouncing around the room that follows.
Score: 3
