Review by irishndfan2

irishndfan2 I will always hold a special place in my heart for this show being it was my first phish show ever. Before attending this show I had listened to one phish song. A live version of "Slave to the Traffic Light". That was it. So I basically went into this show not knowing anything about Phish or their Music. I left the venue just experiencing a life changing event, and the obsession has since taken over lol.

I just recently re-listened to this show. After seeing 3 more Phish shows since then I believe I can now give this a proper review.

1st set.

CROWD CONTROL- I thought was kind of a boring show opener. They played it well but it wasn't anything mindblowing.

KILL DEVIL FALLS- The jam in this was great.

AC/DC BAG- Everytime I get this song I love it. Not sure if you can really critique this song. I thought it was played well, good jam, just an overall fun song.

SUGAR SHACK- Was cool to get this song. Love the little guitar solo riff after the choruses. I'm pretty sure Mike forgot some of the lyrics.

TUBE- The crowd was screaming for this, and Trey obliged. Got mad funky as usual. Great energy.

IN THE AEROPLANE OVER THE SEA- Debut. I absolutely loved this song. Story is Trey got the lyrics couple hours before the show, and he absolutely nailed it.

STASH- Nothing special. Pretty standard compared to other versions I have heard.

Backwards Down the Number Line- Not a huge fan of this right now, but it is a pleasant song. Not sure how to rate this version compared to others.

NICU- Pretty standard. Nothing Special

46 Days- This brought the energy up! WOW, I was destroyed by this song at the show.

Suzy- Great way to close out the first set. Nothing to incredible.


First set was just ok. Nothing mind blowing. Highlights for me would have to be 46 Days, TUBE and AC/DC BAG


Rock and Roll>Columbia JAM- Holy crap this was great. Started nice with the rock N roll, but the Columbia Jam was off the wall. 9 minutes of perfection. I can't say enough about this jam.

FREE- And then this song hit me like a ton of bricks. Wow I was blown away at the show by this song. The guitar solo gets me evertime. I can't really compare it to other versions, but holey crap this was great.

Fast Enough For You- Beautifully played song.

SPARKLE- !!!!! PERFECT TIMING FOR THIS SONG. Wow was that fun. Pretty standard version, but was perfect, perfect timing to pull it out.

TWEEZER= Awesome version. I got a better version 12/30/2010, but this one was very well played as well.

THE HORSE>SILENT IN THE MORNING- Beautiful songs, beautifully played/

Wolfman's Brother= OH BOY! great great version.

SLAVE TO THE TRAFFIC LIGHT= YOUR BOY GOT HIS ONLY SONG HE KNW! hahaha. When this came on I went nuts! Played well, however I kind don't like how they have slowed this song down in the newer versions. Some of the older versions I have they play this song a lot faster and I seem to enjoy those more. Still was incredible to get my first show.

TWEEZER REPRISE= Nothing special. However, Phish seems to always want to play this to close out the encore. I LOVED how they did it before the encore this show.


Show Of Life- This song never blows me away. Its a pleasant song, but I'm sure glad it wasn't the only song of the encore/

Good Times Bad Times- HOLY CRAP! What a way to end my first ever Phish show. They absolutely murdered this song! Love when page comes in with his little verse!

Set 2 overview:

Incredible second set. Deff worth the listen. Highlights have to be RNR>columbia Jam, FREE, SLAVE, and GTBT!
