fhqwhgads Long sets! Susskind Hotel (which I hope finds it way back into current setlists!) Monkey Man! Banter in Jim! Quality execution of It's Ice! Scents with Intro! Golden Age jam (sort of plinko, as much as I disavow that that was really a thing, though now I see how it presaged the percussion/Marimba Lumina/drums jams of 2016!) Piper > Tweezer, perhaps the highlight of the show! 5 set closers (Cavern > Golgi > ADITL, E: Loving Cup, Tweeprise!) Storage Jam! Whew!

Note: I don't really see what "Storage Jamming" is in the context of the consecutive few years of Phishtory; like "plinko," I think it's just an attempt--albeit good-natured--to "call" or classify Phish's jamming style, perhaps in hope of a full-scale renaissance such as the cowfunk of 1997, the ambient jamming of 1998, or the respective styles of 1999 and 2000. I think Phish has settled down in their jamming quite a bit since 1.0--and even 2.0--and that, while the jams are still amazing, there aren't as many paradigm shifts as some phans seem to "want to believe." $0.02.
