Review by GoingSouth

GoingSouth I loved this show, and the whole run. First off, the MGM thing was awesome. For those that actually stayed at the hotel, you know how awesome it was. Practically every other person in the casino was a Phish fan, even during the day (when I was gambling). What fun to spin Roulette with other fans!

I called Runaway Jim, which was cool, and got the night off to a great start. Foam I thought was especially fun and was sooooo nice to hear! Mexican Cousin was fun for a sec, then I ran to pee. Trey's solo in Ocelot was really really good. I haven't listened back yet, but it was actually my favorite Trey guitar moment of the night. Sugar Shack was campy feeling and a good time. I have never been a huge ASIHTOS fan, but this version definitely changed my mind about that...great moments throughout. Moon is a great tune, never heard the Rhapsody tease. Then we get to the meat: Gin > Free... not my favorite Gin, but a cool jam out into Free, which is by far my favorite Free ever. Loved it! Cave was a good closer.

Set 2 was ridiculous. I really thought they were going into the Wedge out of CDT. Good solid Piper, Theme was haunting an beautiful (always welcome). Wombat was funky as hell...I love it in a later set 2 spot. Bowie was standard. Line was oddly placed, possibly my only moment of "meh" but I was so spaced out by that point anyways until... YEM!!!! That YEM was unreal. Not only musically, but the insanity that ensued when Trey started running around like a madman with the siren on the megaphone was nuts. It doesn't state it in the notes, but after he ran around a while, Mike got out of his bass area and started chasing Trey around the stage in circles...the crowd went insane! Can't wait to hear that again in the recordings. Fight bell, etc. Great stuff! PHISH!!!!

Encore was unexpected...Moma?? Are they playing Moma?? > Slave. I'll take it!
