mattyb5000 Great show! The second set was brilliantly played, highlighted by a "Sand" for the ages that segued into a smokin' hot version of Ghost not seen at any other show of 2012 in my opinion. I loved some of the unique new turns they gave to "Hood", and although subtle I think this was one of the top Hood's of the summer, if not the best.

Although each song of set II was solid, I have to say that I could only give this show 4 stars and not 5, for the simple fact that with the exception of awesome versions of Maze and Bathtub Gin in set I, everything else in that set wasan afterthought. As with almost all set I's for summer '12, it was the warm up for the main event of set II. For me, a 5-star show should be pure brilliance from the first note to the last, and this one doesn't fit that criteria. Don't get me wrong - I loved this show, but it's not in the top echelon of Phish shows. (Top echelon of 2012, sure, but not all-time.)
