Review by Stecks

Stecks Another hot humid day in central Indiana. Which means, of course, the show would match or surpass the heat.

And did it ever.

Meat opener, great. My Friend draws huge cheers. MLT brings things down, nice and ethereal... then darkness. Trey starts into Whipping Post and the place erupts. Then the CK5 birthday. I Saw It Again - one of my faves and a rarity at that point. Loving it. 11 minute BORW, then Cavern caps the energy of a high energy set.

Then we have a long birds jam continuing the epic 20+ minute Birds from Polaris two nights before. Dance fest. Transition to walk away is pure blow your hair back rock. Then ANTELOPE! The mid set lope! Place was a loony bin. Speaking of, SUZY! WOW! The energy was insane. Slow it down with HYHU>Purple Rain, during which forgot the lyrics but thanked us for supporting his love of playing the vacuum. Then, as if things couldn't get more ridiculous.. YEM closer.

Encore Loving Cup. Loving Cup was a little more of a rarity back then compared to 2.0 or 3.0. Perfect encore. They smoked it.

In summary.. one of the HIGHEST energy Phish show's I've ever attended. It didn't let up.

Truly worthy of a Live Phish archival release. Some nights, they're in the Zone. This was one of those nights.
