lumpblockclod Acoustic Set

DWD and Wolfman's are a great way to start off any show. Wolfman's was especially fun to hear Trey scrape his pick down the neck of the guitar in the beginning and also do the "telephone was ringing" part. Theme worked surprisingly well as an acoustic song. Meatstick was also lots of fun with Trey imploring the crowd to "sing it in Swahili...sing it in Swedish..Hebrew...etc." The musical highlights were definitely at the end though. Peggy is a nice little song that I'm surprised hasn't shown up at a Phish show yet. Russ took a nice flute solo. Hey Ya was just a ton of fun and pulled off surprisingly well by a bunch of Vermonters playing acoustic.

Electric Set

Ocelot (with horns!) through Jibboo was the best stretch of the early part of the set. The rest of the set was solid if not spectacular. Sweet & Dandy seemed a little more put together than previous versions I've heard. First Tube > Empire State of Mind was a great way to close the show. The Sultans of Swing encore was nice to hear... definitely one of TAB's better covers. All in all a fun show, but not nearly as musically adventurous as some other incarnations of TAB (particularly '02 and '06).
