Scott A few observations:
*Non phishhead locals were impressed with the show and amused by the mini shakedown.
*I think they only fit part of the light rig into this stage but it is like last year's with the moving racks.
*Ghost was exploratory but I felt like it never achieved liftoff. The odd key-shifting ending was cool.
I don't know what Trey was trying to do with the 2nd No Man's jam -- it sounded like he was having issues with his rig TBH. Aborting into Carini was the right decision.
*Fishman messed up towards the very end of Moma and is mostly responsible for the skipped part of Slave (but if Trey hadn't tentatively started singing, I think the rest of the band was ready to ignore Fish's transition fill.)
*Soul Planet was probably jam of the night along with Moma and Hood, none of which was as compelling as the 20 Years Later soundcheck jam.
*I love that they were looking to launch type II even after some fits and starts. Set 2 has uneven flow and synchronicity., so probably a 3 star show despite a strong opening and some moments of joy.
