cristilclear The first set was more structured and completed than the second. Phish.net notes indicate that Chalkdust was the only unfinished song but it seemed like Light was pretty unfinished, as well as Steam and Tweezer. In fact, that could have been the shortest Tweezer in recent history. Nonetheless, I loved this show. The music flowed beautifully from beginning to end with only a few minor hiccups along the way (ie: Free's vocals were a bit out of tune as they sometimes are).

After the Icculus show I was wondering what on earth they would pull off . It seemed they created a deep (thank you Mr. Gordon) in the pocket show that took its time throughout. The whole show seemed to be in a sort of half-time, which made for a stellar 1/2 way to the Moon. Yarmouth Road is a work in progress, always progressing. Usually I can take or leave a Bouncing but it fit right in with the flow on this night.

Fishman was on his game in serious fashion. Drumming, of course, and his vocals shined in all the right places (46 Days). The people I was watching with don't really agree with me; they thought there were more rough spots than not. I found them snoozing on the couch half way through the second set. Too bad for them that they missed the Willie Nelson debut with everyone (BUT FISHMAN, come on!!!!!!) telling us what they most love to do. Making music with my friends; Beautiful and Lovely.
