Down with Disease

n00b100 Either this or the 8/5/11 Hood is my favorite jam that I've witnessed in person (yes, not a long list); I've described it as "weapons-grade nuclear", and that pretty much sums up the final section of this jam, where they turn on the afterburners and Trey reminds us that he used to *shred* (as opposed to what he does now, which is, um, not that). A really wonderful and somewhat underrated jam from a very fine show.

patper It's my most listened-to jam from this year by a lot. I get giggly every time I hear it. I love how WEIRD it gets, then turns around in awe-inspiring fashion. Trey and Mike go into some really wacky territory here, giving me that "oh no, will we get out of here in in one piece?" kind of psychedelic feeling. It settles down a bit which prompts Fishman to launch into a SERIOUS drumbeat, powerful and commanding and dirty as hell (is this the point when those ceiling lights I've heard about came on?). Trey sets a glorious chord progression and the band just takes off, blasting through the ceiling, the perfect juxtapositional energy to the weirdness from the earlier section of the jam. Oh my.

Phew!

A+

winebibbing That "magnificent conclusion" sounds to me like the boys are going full on Poison "Nothin' But a Good Time" at the 14:00 mark before shutting it down. Just wondering if anyone else hears that or if it's me just wanting to hear Phish jam out on one of my favorites from childhood!
