Review by JonBaker

JonBaker The weather was still hot as hell until bad weather moved through the area around 4, dropping the temperature around 20 - 25 degrees which made things much more pleasant to deal with. I was then looking much more forward to this show then the night before. They started off with a tune I was not familiar with, Crowd Control. Interesting tune followed by a great Dinner and a Movie. That's the first time I've heard them play this one. Then came a surprise, Sweet Jane. Another first for me. Then Limb By Limb. This tune is like Wolfman's, I gotta be ready for it at the time, other wise, a no go. I was bummed this time. Oh well, can't have everything. No big deal. Got through it, and then Possum, a crowd favorite. It picked right up from there. Then came another major surprise, Mound. I love this tune and was lucky to have heard for the first time last year down in Cincinnati. Things were starting to pick up. Then came a weird one which I'd never heard, Life on Mars? Kinda strange. The Mango Song was next which I like, followed by another strange tune, Big Black Furry Creature from Mars. This was only the second time I've heard this tune. It's an odd one, to say the least. From here it picked right up with Strange Design which a lot of people don't care for, but I do. Then came Birds of a Feather, followed by another crowd pleaser, Halley's Comet. The came a great ending to the first set, While My Guitar Gently Weeps. The crowd really got into it. The second set started off with DWD. This one was a lot better than the one I heard a week before down in Cincinnati. They went into a decent Sand followed by another great tune, Twist. Then came a fast song, Rift. It got the crowd going. Then came a tune the crowd usually loves, Bathtub Gin. Another sing along for the crowd. Then came a song I didn't expect them to do since I heard it the week before, Fluffhead. They returned this song to the rotation back in 2010 and have kept it around ever since.The crowd loves certain songs and this is one of them. Once again, you never know what to expect from this group. Then came another surprise, Ride Captain Ride. Everyone loved it. Then came a closer I kinda expected, Run like an Antelope. They love to play this tune here. This is the fourth time I've heard them play it at this venue. For the encore, they played three tunes. Cavern, Sanity and First Tube. The crowd really loved Sanity and First Tube. What more can you ask for, another great run at Deer Creek by Phish. I've seen Phish's last ten shows here at Deer Creek and hope to continue this streak again next summer. Had a great time as usual except for the heat on Thursday and hope to see everyone again next summer at DC!
