Review by KingDisco

KingDisco I gotta come clean to the net phaithful- typically if I'm only catching one show at a run I pray it will be the best. When it isn't (unless there are some serious 12/28/13 apologists out there) I do everything possible to plead the case for my show.

"I got THE jam, I got THE set." So as I was walking out on 12/30 I felt damn good. I did it. I had a one in four shot and guessed correctly. Then last night happened.

this show is without question better. I understand set ones cant be four 20+ animals but this is how you don't do that but still have a cohesive and fun set of music.

Set two had the same vibe until all hell broke loose. KDF smokes and Piper functions extraordinarily well as almost a sandwich in a big set closing exercise. Twist is exhibit A why phish will always reign supreme in the pigeonholed jamband scene. What they did in 15 mins sounded like what a top tier band would struggle to do in 25 mins. Hell I don't even think 2009/10 phish could ever dream of covering what Twist did in just 15 mins

Oh there's a set three? damn you 12/31 this isn't fair. While I was too preoccupied with what the gag will be they rolled out one of the most patient and ambient jam pieces in nminml's amazing vibe complete with the visual awesomeness. Ho hum- two songs barely six months old have their standout versions back to back, well above average 3.0 Bowie and the party set of early set two brings them home.

Just once won't the boys let me have 24 hours thinking a saw the show of the run?
