nichobert Yea, Tweezer was short.. But like Kansas City and Charlotte, it was still developed perfectly and eminently satisfying. A thunderous dark groove with beams of light burning through it. Pretty average short Tweezer, but placed well past the point in a show where you can legitimately expect much more.

But hey, it's a 12 minute Tweezer, so people are going to complain no matter how excellent it was. Pretty

The 3rd sub-10 minute Light in the last 10 was nowhere near as good as the Gorge version. I thought they were intentionally playing it in a different key at first, but apparently not lol. They never really got back on track but it was Light so you could still slice out a few minutes of tightly knotted off kilter improv if you wanted to.

46 Days crushed for being 5 minutes. Steam was ok, Free seemed a little different.

I'm fairly certain that was the best Chalkdust I have ever heard. There are some contenders. Camden 99, Camden 2010, Dicks 2012, IT, 7/25/97. Thought the jam did a great job of moving from segment to segment without messing around and without anything jarring.

3.0 Greatness to a tee. The best of all worlds.

In 6 weeks, Phish has made me go back and explore best ever status 4 times. And all4 landed in my top 10 of all time for the Song. And we are talking longterm heavy hitter centerpiece songs here. That's impressive! ( MPP Stash, Toronto DWD, Tahoe Tweezer, Dick Dust)

Fun show with about 40 great minutes between Chalkdust and parts of Light.Tweezer and Gin
