46Blaze From Couch Tour:

Wonderful first set drew everyone in, with Lawn Boy and Divided Sky in particular showing the band feeling at ease and just letting the music flow. Back on the Train had a cool swampy midsection, and Trey seemed to reeeeeeally be feeling that Character Zero. Did anyone call a Don't Bogart That Joint opener?

Second set brought the fire in one of the best Carinis I've ever heard, a blissful Twist jam, a Piper>Ass>Piper for the ages, and a truly bonus More, a Big Boat track I'm starting to come around to.

Every aspect of the NYE gag was a treat to watch; I only wish I could have been there to get smothered by cats and dogs. Petrichor was complemented perfectly by the choreography/light show, so much that my buddy and I wondered if Trey had it all in mind when composing the song. Suzy was ridiculous fun watching all the band and crew members fight off the feline/canine onslaught. And if anyone has a problem with 3rd set song placement, I have to say I tend to side with the blog review's opinion that it's rather unlikely that we'll get another No Men, 555, or especially Ocelot (!!!) with horns again soon, so count me happy on those. No Men in particular was hot as fuck, and Tide Turns is also a pretty fantastic song with those horns.

Overall, I got a beautiful buzz from everything Phish & Friends put down last night.
