Review by Itch_to_the_nag

Itch_to_the_nag While there were only a handful of phan favorite “heavy hitters” left on the table after the last few nights...phish made the absolute best with what they had.

In fact they proved they didn’t need to engage in what some would consider the obvious. They avoided all covers (minus the very last loving cup) and left us with a well excecuted dance party that could be argued was the second best show of the run.

New Year’s Eve shows are the perfect time to think back on the year music we have be givith. And while 3.0 has provided moments of brilliance and there have been several shows of historical value. Most may argue this was the strongest year (all be it shortest) of phish since ‘97.

From the wizardry of CK5 to the impressive sound of Trey’s guitar, to the well crafted set lists, it has been an incredible year.

And less we not forget a reinvented, spacier chairman of the boards. These components and countless others have proven beyond a doubt it’s still a great time to be a phish fan.

Tonight’s show had a taste of all these elements and solidified that this band not only loves to take care of their fans but relishes the opportunity to push themselves in new and interesting ways.

Though we only got 28 shows this year boy did they make them count!! Thank you Phish and can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store. Happy new year!
