Review by Your_Trip_Is_Short

Your_Trip_Is_Short This show was absolutely killer - top to bottom. For the first set to open with Icculus and close with Harpua?!?! C'mon, man. That's the stuff of dreams. Then throw in the entire double album of Quadrophenia, complete with the surprise tease of Thriller beforehand and they could have ended the show right there and called this "one for the ages". But no, they had MUCH more in store. That 3rd set started at around midnight if I recall and the show ended at 1:30 in the morning! There have been many 3 set shows since where the 3rd set was just an afterthought, but this one was chocked full of goodness. To open with a 40+ minute YEM?!?! We knew shit was going to go down. And it was a very creepy Halloween YEM, to be sure. It never got boring like some long jams of that era did. Then throw in what is arguably the best Jesus Left Chicago ever played, man I was in heaven. To see Grippo take that solo to the HOUSE was a moment in time I will never forget. The you get a closer of Susie with horns and a super fun gag-encore complete with total destruction of the set Who style!! This show was absolutely freaking awesome. I can't believe anybody that was there would not give this 5 stars. I'd give it 6 if I could. I've seen 70 Phish shows and hundreds and hundreds of other shows and this one is top 3 all-time in my book. (Along with Pink Floyd Silverdome '94 and The Show 12/31/99). Thank you Phish!!!!
