Review by Bethelite

Bethelite I was on Mike side, no more than ten yards from the stage which is probably the closest I've been at a Phish show. Between that, how terrific the sound was there, the perfect weather and an excellent setup for the venue and vendors, this really felt like a special show, even if 7/4/14, which I also attended, was probably better strictly in terms of the music.

But this show was no slouch. The first set was outstanding, with Ya Mar (Leo *and* Cactus solos!), Stash, and THAT GIN being standouts, but I didn't really think there were any weak numbers. Even Rift was played fairly cleanly.

The second set was not as consistently impressive across the board as 7/4/14, but the DWD was really incredible. The groove Trey settled in for the second phase of the jam was terrific, and Fishman was really spectacular on the drums, and not just here but throughout the set. The other jams were fun if underdeveloped, and David Bowie was a strong way to take us to the finish line, with a typically fun Cavern and Character Zero.

Can't wait to see what they bring tonight.
