Review by Palmer

Palmer First I have to say how much I love the venue, I grew up 15 miles from the venue and the sound coming from the venue when you approach the SPAC bridge is unheard of, a solid venue for all music, and when Phish is in the local vicinity Vermont and Eastern New York packs the venue.
SET ONE- My Friend My Friend opened the show, good opener always a solid version from Rift, only done better when it's live. Next came Do you want to go, i was unfamilar with this one. Gin > NICU, The Sloth and Mind got a mind of its own is nothing short of amazing. It's Ice, another Rift live gem with Page playing the keys and singing his heart out, i love this.
Dog faced boy > Tela, Possum, Another example of Phish in the mid 90's. Solid Set, Solid energy and a solid show well on it's way.
SET TWO- Disease, Free, Poor Heart, got to love the power, the energy and the bluegrass mixed up in set 2. YEM came with arms flashing and feet kicking, Spac became stuck in the middle of a long extended jam and it continued and continued, into Page singing Strange Design, calming the energy and allowing the show closer to be
Antelope. Wow A YEM which could melt iron and an Antelope which seemed to zip through the venue like a bullet. What a show.
ENCORE- I'm guessing Julius, nope Fishman came out on the table with Sleeping Monkey which is a solid ballad if i had heard one, then Rocky Top, I swear to God Gordon loves this tune as much as the crowd that was feeling the blue grass treat.
SPAC is awesome, good times and great tunes.
