PHATTSKIS #118 for me and have a few things to say:

CTB was awesome to see again after not seeing it for many shows.

Roses Are Free>BDTNL>Zero was wonderfully played. Backwards is my favorite "newer" tune and they tore it up for me.

Golden Age> Favorite jam of the night

Light>Velvet Sea just didn't do it for me at all. I believe the only other time I saw Light was at Festival 8 and the jam was sublime but not as spacey as some other versions I have heard and then, progressing into Velvet Sea, it was a complete let down. A girl standing next to me did hardly moved during **the entire show** until I stopped dancing during Velvet Sea and, when she started swaying and tossing glowsticks during the song, that made it even more of a buzzkill! hahahahaha--I can laugh now but I just don't like that song. I really needed the Chalkdust that came out of nowhere at the end of that song and of course, the chick stopped dancing which made NO SENSE at all. I was screaming "can't I live while I'm young!!!!" at the top of my lungs as a response to her literal non-participation.

Whats the Use? Kinda weird ambient jam that broke the mood to me when a rocking Chalkdust completely disappeared as Trey leaned over to tweak his delay pedals for the upcoming spacey tune. I hadn't listened to Siket Disc in ages and had forgotten what the song actually was and so out of the rarity of it all in retrospect was cool; but, in reality Joy, even being a slower tune, brought the set back around to me. I enjoyed that the last time I saw it at Festival 8 so it was nice to hear "this is your song, too" even though it was kinda slow.

But then of course Antelope blew the roof off Lakewood. Like an old friend you have been waiting on, Antelope jam was just like the old days with that primal PHiSH groove in the middle and power at the end. I might not have danced harder that night as during the jam in that song. Like it should be.
