LightsWentOut This one show where I was glad to have seen it on webcast. Of course, I would love to have been there, but the webcast allowed me to see just how much fun the band was having on stage during this high-energy love-fest. I was smiling ear-to-ear and was almost at the point of crying tears of joy during the second set. If there is one thing that stands out for me about this show was that Harry Hood. Others have alluded to it (and some even ho-hummed it) and that moment where Trey moves from Mike to Fish to Page and "duets" with each was evidence of just how much love these guys have for each other and how that is translating to the music every night. To me, that Hood was the defining moment of Summer 2014 in terms of the theme of the tour. Yes, we can all point to the epic jams and stand-out versions of songs as we usually do, but this time around we are getting so much more than the Phish we usually expect. There is a lot of love for the music, love for the fans, and love for each other up there on that stage and its really amazing to see. That Hood, man. It's all there in that Hood. Oh yeah, then there is that flippin' First Tube. Then the Fluffhead encore. I couldn't avert my gaze from the wonderment.
