Abe_Froman My first in person Phish or Phish related show. The Murat is an awesome theatre in downtown Indy, I saw the Foo Fighters there on my 15th birthday. Phish also had good nights there in 93 and 94, but you already know that, I'm sure.

The acoustic set is great, and songs like Mountains in the Mist, Kissed by Mist and Velvet Sea shine in the stripped down setting. Lots of good Trey banter too.

The electric set is hard to explain, so I'll try an analogy. Remember seeing guys like J.R. Rider and Harold Miner win the NBA Slam Dunk contest back in the day? That feeling of....I don't know what this is, but it could be the best thing I've ever seen! That's the electric set of this show. Years go by, and those dunks are warm ups now, just as we've seen Sands, First Tubes, etc. way better than those from May, 1999. Still, for a couple of weeks on this tour, Trey WAS Jimi Hendrix in the Band of Gypsies album. The balcony in the Murat was bouncing, people. Its amazing the building is still standing.

It was NEW music, Trey taking chances. A great night.
