Sandwiched between the legendary 11/27/98 show and a tour closer, 11/28/98 will probably go unnoticed by many traders. This is a shame because it was a gem. Saturday night at the Centrum was much more of a "Phish the garage-rock band that makes you dance" show than a "Phish the ambient jammers" we see much of from 1998. The show starts off with a “Gumbo”/”Tube”/”Disease”/”Moma” combo that keeps the energy high. Although the first set never goes anywhere crazy, there's intense, solid playing throughout; Trey especially is reckless throughout this show. Listen at the beginning of the second set for a crowd roar in “Julius”; the Centrum was filled with oversized balloons that night, and Trey popped one with his guitar neck. The boys jam hardest on the seamless “Wolfman's” — > “Timber” combo, and the “Crossroads” shocked us all. A legendary show? No. Good times in Woosta? Definitely.
