Notes: The My Friend ending did not contain the "Myfe" lyric. Tom Marshall spoke the lyrics to Antelope. Sand through Funky Bitch and Hood featured Michael Ray on trumpet. When he wasn’t playing, Ray was dancing around the stage and exhorting the appreciative crowd. During Hood, he sat and relaxed in front of the drum riser before pulling several people out of the crowd, who proceeded to sit around the stage and occasionally dance. Trey thanked them as “The Michael Ray Chorus.” Sand included a First Tube tease.

Palmer Wow, 1 review so far. Loved this show. It was the better of the 2 at the Knick, Pepsi whatever. Enjoyed the scene before the show, the entire street turns into a flea market atmosphere.

SET 1- Possum ( who brings down the house better than the Phish from VT? No one).

My Friend My friend- (always welcoming, a great tune from rift that doesn't get enough play Imo, nice little jam to follow through the song extending it to longer per portion).

Gumbo- (nice, wanted to hear this tune all tour, glad to have gotten it).

Maze- (always keeps the phans moving, that thunderous slap on bass is earth shattering).

Boogie on ( Stevie Wonder would be pleased, Phish doing it justice).

Roggae ( my favorite phish tune from Ghost, mellow, jammy, spaced out and ambient).

Guyute- (can't be outdone from Roggae, got to follow up with the ugly pig).

Antelope- (Set closer. Good energy and solid playing. Nice to see TM on stage wit the old friends).

SET 2-

Jibboo- (1999 was the year of the Farmhouse and it seems to have spilled over into 2000, good tune, not my favorite).

Curtain- (Special song for a special crowd this evening)

Sand- (one of the best from farmhouse IMO, good energy and solid playing, I could hear this one at every show).

Makisupa- ( watch out for those men and women dressed in blue, this was a nice treat coming from a solid Sand. Band had some additional horns to make it sound even more unique).

CTB- ( love this groove)

Funky Bit

10/19/12 - This show was replayed in thePhish room on Turntable.FM

The first big and very unique moment in this show comes with the Jam after MFMF. Very cool and spacey stuff here, a must listen! The space drops nicely in to Gumbo, which is standard, and then a well executed segue in to a raging Maze. Boogie and Roggae are both pretty nice, but don't go out there as much as one would like.

Set two isn't quite as good as one would hope, judging by the setlist. The Sand is a monster, but spends a lot of time meandering around, never truly finding its place until Michael Ray comes out. Still a great track, but nothing to write home about. Makisupa > CTB > Funky Bitch is definitely the highlight of this set. Not much can be said about a Hood encore with Ray on trumpet... just listen to it, immediately.
