mud_lovebuddy : ;) osts 1st review in historic show::

Average great show.

First set simply sets the table. A little bit more mustard on Ya Mar and David Bowie but nothing terribly inspiring.

Second set kicks off with drowned. The first since fall '14 but they should keep this one on the shelf. Mike can't hit the notes anymore. It's pretty funny listening to him try though.

Trey forces the band into WTU which to me is completely unnecessary. WTU should never feel forced. Nothing particularly notable about this version.

The Sand -> Ghost > 2001 sequence is top of the line Phish though. Sand has two distinct jam segments sandwiched around the main theme of the song and both rip. It starts pouring during Ghost and, much like the famous Ventura show, this seems to push the band to really go for it. They crush it with a sticky type II jam that ends in a peak reminiscent of Summer 98 versions. 2001, as always, is a party and possibly the second nod of the night to the late, great David Bowie.

Overall an average great Phish show that happened in paradise. Cannot complain about that.

Seek out the Sand -> Ghost > 2001 if nothing else.
