Review by SageDabbler

SageDabbler This was my first indoor show and first in NYC, which turns out to be the mother of all scenes (i love every scene MSG is just so high energy). Pyite opens things up with a blast before moving into caspian. Many are dissapointed but i dont really care what they play as long as it is played with quality. THey then jump into number line, which IMO belongs better in the 3rd slot of the first set rather than the second. Nellie Kane is a real treat and is right up their with the Darien version. Divided Sky is next and is really outstanding, my favorite of the set. I personally can really appreciate a well played composition. Sand is kickin as always. Vulutres is a reals treat and beside Trey jumpin in too early on the vocals at one point is well played. Rift got me groovin, joy was well played and Quinn is always welcome in my book. A well played set from The Phish. Wilson opens up the second and the crowd was ready. They messed up comin into axilla but recovered for the rock tune. Piper is next and transcends into a stellar jam pickin the garden up and slammin it down with psychedelic craziness. I dont remember twist as i was carrying a passed out man out of the building. Anyways, Julius and Golgi are well played and high energy. 2001 keeps the energy going, but i personally believe more could have been done with it. Horse>Silent was oddly placed but well played IMO. Bowie begins with excellent silent teases and has a nice jam too it. at one point it could have reached an excellent jam but was cut off for the ending. nonetheless a solid versionl. Coil was a beautiful ending and Page kept the garden occupied for about 2 minutes...a beautiful sight. THe loudest crowd ive ever heard was this crowd after page was done...my ears were ringfing. THe set was solid but after Piper never reached the next level. Boogie is a perfect encore song IMO, and GTBT is always a treat. A solid show...highlights are Divided Sky and Piper IMO...Happy New year!!!! Heres to 2012 another greate year!
