icculus79 First set was great (curtis loew, possum,didn't know, backward.......), . It was a strange experience for me - it almost felt more like I was just hanging out in the lawn with friends while phish was jamming a tight set in the background. It was cool though - waiting for a second set blow up.

Halley's Comet > Light > 46 Days >


Don't get me wrong - nothing personal against those songs - definitely not Halleys and maybe more Light, but heard the same two song opener at Raleigh and really felt the same way. Haley is a bad ass opener, but then to go into light - just kind of deflated my sail a bit. The rest of the night had solid tunes(ie mango, meatstick) but nothing really felt like it caught fire for me.

I never have and hope never will say a show was a bust and won't for this nights, but my expectations for phish at DC are way way way high, and the second set kind of fell short for me. Good show though and still made it to Alpine the next night!
