Review by PisoMojado

PisoMojado Watched from the couch...

First set was well-played, had a good flow, but wasn't particularly memorable either. Highlights for me were Undermind (loved the extra mustard on Fishman's fills at the end) and a nice Stash. I'm slowly warming up to Petrichor - it certainly sounds better live than on the album (the concert bells are a real turn-off for me). Live, the song breathes more. I'm not holding out hope for the Mike's 2nd jams any more, but won't lie that I would have rather heard anything *but* Bouncing between Mike's and Weekapaug.

Crosseyed was short and sweet. To me, the clear highlight of the 2nd set and the night was Steam > Piper. Piper, in particular was fantastic - patient and well-jammed. The dissolve into Wingsuit was a welcome antithesis to yet another installment of "ripcord Trey." The 4th quarter... let's just say they were playing not to lose instead of playing to win.

The nod to Skynyrd for the encore was nice, but go for the gusto, Phish - Freebird or bust!
