andychatfield As my 33rd Phish show (first in over 4 years) I was excited to see "AC/DC Bag" opener - and a crazy jam! Reminded me of how the first Great Woods show opened in June 1995. What would they follow THAT with? A complete "Gamehendge"? No - "Heavy Things". But "Punch You In The Eye" brought everything back up to the craziness of the opener. "Wolfman`s Brother" is long and funky. "Theme From The Bottom" brought back a great song. And I think everyone was surprised at the places "Birds of a Feather" went! Was this really just the FIRST set? Then the second set "Mike`s Song>I Am Hydrogen>Weekapaug Groove" - flashbacks of the `95 show - with the old school in-between song, straight into the groove (which even slowed down to be MORE funky at the end!) - where else do you go? Trey`s explanation that "Weekapaug`s Groove" vocal was a riff on "Oh What A Night" was funny. "Makisupa Policeman" is funky as well (though some other people in the crowd thought "soy milk" was kind of weak...) "Dog Faced Boy" was unexpected, and "Friday" seemed like they were losing a bit of energy. "Harry Hood" is always a good closer. "Possum" had to be kept short because of the curfew in MA. Excellent show, though. Thanks Phish!
