hughie46 both the finest show and best experience with live phish i have yet to have. this show had a vibe from the get go that is palpably different than most 3.0 shows. the band shone with confidence and the music seemed to flow perfectly naturally. they were set on jamming, and the first set was both thrilling, surprising, and a bit mind blowing. the stash was absolutely nuts, and the zero had the crowd losing it. then again every song they played had some "extra mustard", with a cool yamar and a funk jam in its ice.
the second set is what modern phish dreams are made of. Gin was gorgeous and felt like it was powered by rocket fuel, then NMINML was deliciously funky and had trey and page soloing at the same time.... nuts, and also a bit extended with some extra rocking if i am correct. if things in this set werent already real, the twist transcended the reality of seeing and enjoying phish in my humble opinion. the intro was tight, they were on a mission. this jam got heavily psychedelic, and was the kind of mega type 2, no single member out front jam that marks the finst phish improv. all i can really say is it was otherworldly and just stunning. to play the rare coveted scents with intro perfectly at this point was just icing on the cake, and had the whole place charmed. the jam that followed it felt so natural I thought it was customary, and at the time wasnt sure if i prefered it to the twist, since it was so incredible. and of course, to cap it off with a gorgeous hood and a raging loving cup encore was absolutely perfect.

although this show was fantastic from start to finish, it really only felt like it was getting better and better, with no disrespect to the preceding songs, as it went on. a truly a+ show in the 2015 era phish, while also holding a candle to other epic shows throughout the phish catalog. each band member played fantastically and i was blown away by how confident and free spirited the music was, especially after theyve been playing for all these years. highly recommended
