TweezingSpaceRanger This is an incredible phish show. The whole first set is great (yes even the line works well). AC/DC Bag>Free is a great way to start a show, especially with the Martian Monster tease. Ya Mar is always great to hear. Sample is a good song. The Cities and Stash are the meat of the set and both have great jams. I especially enjoy Trey during the very beginning of the Stash jam (5:50-6:20). Birds is its usual self and The Line works in its spot. It's Ice has another relatively long and manteca like jam that I love, and Character Zero will always get the crowd fired up.

As for the second set, what else can be said? It opens with an excellent although straightforward rendition of Bathtub Gin (mu-tron!!!) and closes with the same thing to be said about Harry Hood. The NMINML shreds before welcoming the improvisational highlight of the night in a version of Twist that is competing with Fukuoka and SPAC 04 for my personal favorite Twist. Scents is an incredible song and it includes the intro, which I think should always be included. Overall, every song played in this set was jammed out to its full potential and concluded. It isn't often when Phish plays a set where they try to explore every song and complete them without ripcords. This is a must hear show.
