Deadphish420 This show was amazing and so much fun!! I had VIP pavilion seats for this show. The first time being in pavilion ever in Deer Creek since first going there in 03. What can I say, Im a Lawn Boy! Anyways, my view of the band was the best I ever had at any show and it just enhanced the experience so much. The Curtain With is an awesome version and a great way to kick off the show right after a fun Birdwatcher. It seems when they play The Curtain With early in a show you are gonna get more bustouts and more rarely played song selection by evidence in this show of TOHP, Weigh, Cool it Down, Tela, Mcgrupp, and of course Fuck Your Face. Talk about padding your phish stats! Im sure they busted out Cool it Down to give the audience a chance to actually cool down in the 100 degree heat of that day and the heat of that first set. The whole Mikes Groove is the main highlight of this shoe IMO. I think the boys were not on the same page tho on the 2nd half of BOTT so they kinda just led it into HYHU cause they didnt know where to go with it but Im not complaining. Fish, "What am I doing here? If you think you're the only one asking that question you're wrong." We got a tuck from Fish as well. Hilarious. I"ve read some reviews saying that Fish "ruined another Weekapaug by trying to play the guitar." That is an absurd statement. First of all it was awesome and funny. 2nd, When has Fish ever ruined a Weekapug. Third, the reason Fish even picked up the guitar was cause trey wouldn't get off the drums. I thought it was all great. You could tell how much fun they were really having and the best shows always comes when the band is having fun. I get flak from other phans when I tell them thatI dont really care for Waves all that much in general, but thats the incredible thing about Phish, they can make you love a version of a song you dont normally like which is the case here. awesome jam on Waves that > into Bug which is a song I love at all times. Then a Bowie to close it out. THANK YOU! I gave this show 5 stars but musically its probably 4 stars but it was so fun I had to bump it up another star. Either way its a must listen. So is the 2nd night BTW
