Review by Tubular2001

Tubular2001 To this day, 11/1/13 has stood out as one of the best in 3.0. This is definitely in my Top 3 shows of all time...the environment in Atlantic City was fun, and the phans were already in a natural high from the Halloween celebrations the night before. Is it stupid to say that everyone knew that the show was going to be amazing before it even started? That's how it felt...

Set 1: As mentioned in other reviews, definitely one of the strongest 1st sets of 2013 (if not the best). Cavern, Runaway Jim, and Sand as the first 3 songs to start off the night were all funky and tight. Enjoyable versions of "Possum" and "Tube" (Possum's greatness is even noted here on Phish.net). To be a fair critic, I'd say the lowest point of the show was "When The Circus Comes" > "Sugar Shack". The band always seems to have trouble with "Shack in general...even though I do enjoy the song. "Jesus Left Chicago" included some roaring Blues licks from Trey and the "David Bowie" set closer is the best version I've probably seen live. Listening to Trey go off from around 8:00-10:00 is just mind blowing...my jaw was literally dropped watching this beauty unfold before my eyes.

Set 2: The 20 minute "Twist" was not only incredibly beautiful and ambient, but then some comedy was tossed in when the band went into "Under Pressure". Mostly from Fishman who made everybody laugh their asses off from his mumbling of lyrics. "Gotta Jibboo" is probably the most underrated jam of the night, "Makisupa" and "Meatstick" just reinforced the party atmosphere in the hall that night. Trey did phuck up "The Wedge" but his playing the rest of the night makes up for it. "Light" was lengthy, funky, and went many different places, "Chalkdust" and "Boogie" were very tight, but both short and sweet...The entire group nailed "Slave" to end the set.

Encore: A totally awesome and incredibly phunky 11 min "Sally" to end the show. The band was dead on just about the entire night...most of the songs venturing into many beautiful/different areas (Runaway Jim, Light, Jibboo, & Bowie). A must listen for any PHAN!
