Notes: Throughout the first set the band was using charades to communicate what song was coming next, prompting Trey to remark after Jibboo, “We do everything by hand signals now. There’s no more talking.”  After PYITE, Trey again referenced the hand signals, joking “That could be one of two songs, so we’ll see if he starts the right one.” During Antelope, Trey changed the lyrics to “Been you to have any slush?”  Disease contained an L.A. Woman tease from Trey, who also briefly teased Taste just before beginning Free, and was unfinished. Esther was played for the first time since September 30, 2000 (89 shows). Hood featured Dirt and Free teases from Trey.

waxbanks Joyous evening among the rocks: two fun sets and a couple of jams worth seeking out. R'n'R and Disease neatly fill a half-hour; the former features some stop/start jackoffery (this is not a complaint!) and the latter keeps the musicomedy coming without getting stupid. Harry Hood became a major 'Type II' jam vehicle in 2003, so the concision of the '09 versions might be disappointing - yet there isn't a bad performance among them, and even the weirdly disappointing stuff (Jones Beach!) contains some moment or passage of extraordinary power (Jones Beach!!). Well, this is a buoyant and open-hearted Hood and you will feel (ahem) good about it, same as the rest of this uplifting show.

MountainKung303 Curtain With was a pleasant surprise. The best Esther I've ever heard live. Trey nailed this one.

The first set was amazing. Best Tube ever.

dpwilljr I remember the crowd during AC DC...singing every word..raising hands. Hardcore Phish phans abound at this show.
Also the Jesus Just Left Chicago tease that wasn't previously mentioned before Bag.

floydthecpanzee Trey redeeming himself for the Coventry Curtain ... that alone is great stuff ... not the best show of the weekend overall that award goes to 7/31. The whole weekend was a dream come true for me. I had resigned myself to the fact that 1) I would never see Phish again and if #1 were somehow possible I would 2) NEVER see Phish at Red Rocks after Morrison banned em. Somehow both came true in the same year. One of the best weekends of my life
