good ole'Starlake,good to be back!
nearly lost among the other classics shows on this tour,their return to starlake was the weakest of all the other times phish has played this venue(what i saw out of 00 summer tour)..the 1st set had some dtrong points,gumbo,Divided,Maze->Shafty->Maze.. during setbreak it got pretty chilly,i figured the 2nd set had to warm me up...NO,i couldnt wait for the 2nd set to end,(Nice Melt fwiw)...
Uh oh. This show was the first time I dropped out. I thought I died and Heaven was a Phish show. And it made the Shafty pretty intimidating! After I woke up the next morning, I never felt quite the same.
Maze > Shafty > Maze. I named my bubbler Shafty after that incident. Great energy in that sequence. Still one of my favorite concert moments. The entire second set and encore were right up my alley at the time. Lots of choice songs. A Ghost second set opener in 2000 was a winner all around. Roggae is by far my favorite slow song. Can't ever get enough of that Mike's > Simple > Groove. A solid show. I would recommend listening.
