sethadam1 I got off the plane in Copenhagen on Monday and went straight to Freetown/Christiana to check out "Den Gra Hal", where Phish would be playing the next three nights. I hung out for a bit and the word came around that the band might soundcheck. I spoke to Page - my first ever contact with the band - got to ask him some questions, and decided to hang out for a "might happen" soundcheck. It started raining, hard enough, at least, to scare most people away, but I had nowhere to go yet, so I stuck around.

While the band, inside, did their soundcheck - it was probably about a half hour - about 10 of us hung out *behind* the venue. You could go all the way around it, and the back was pretty close to the stage. We definitely heard Roggae and at least part of Moma, neither had any lyrics. To be honest, I really don't remember/know if they played Roggae multiple times or just played it once for about 20 minutes, but preserving THAT it happened is more important in this case that the specifics. The entire Copenhagen jaunt was def one of the cooler Phish experiences I've had, but this was my first brush with Roggae.
Score: 5
