ajcmixer After the experience of my life on Sunday I was due for a letdown and its all good. Though the show definitely had its blazing moments. And though there was nothing really wrong, performance-wise with anything that preceded it, it felt like it went up a notch in all respects, sonically-wise, from KDF>Gin and then the Light Up>Cavern to close a very solid set.

Carini roared out of the set break, Sand showed some spunk and DWD featured some rip-roaring Trey leads and some monstrous Mike bass bombs. Maze was monstrous itself and might have been the best song of the night if not for Bug, Trey ripped and then ripped again and again and again, this one overflowed with passion and emotion.

The Meatstick and 2001 that preceded it got the crowd into a very heavy groove.

The A Day in the Life that followed it was near perfect but, more importantly, passionately performed but the song-ending crescendo was something to behold and neat to be in the building for. After all that the Antelope felt anti-climatic but that's a good criticism to have if any at all.

And I might be in the minority here and being a DeadHead but the Quinn didn't quite resonate with me as it seemed to do with most others. I was kind in the mood for more Phish material, not a cover song, that's all. My problem and in general if that's the worst thing I can lobby against a show then I should have such problems in life in general. This was an extremely solid show simply overshadowed a bit by the previous show to these ears. Looking forward to tomorrow, GA Pit seats and looking to rage hard with them.
