fhqwhgads The crowd certainly did wan'na hear Tube for crying out loud, LOL! Crowd Control opener is energetic and parlays into a well-played show with a few notable moments or highlights: Foam and Esther are played pretty well if not note-perfectly, Ha Ha Ha is a fun rarity, you get your debut of Party Time and some banter surrounding that trio of songs (with Tube), and Time Turns Elastic closes the set, my favorite Phish song debuted since the reunion. Tweezer to open Set II doesn't get that wild, really, and Alaska, Let Me Lie in a second set might've seemed kind of head-scratchy at the time (though those kinds of song choices have become a lot more common since then), but 46 Days has a great outing, with synth from Page and a display of the jamming tendencies inherent to early 3.0, which were pretty wide-ranging in retrospect. Finally, Oh! Sweet Nuthin' which I think has only been played once more since this version > Harry Hood, again not a really wild version but good, and Good Times Bad Times, Tweezer Reprise to close the show. I think the Tube calls in the audience were kind of annoying the band, but stuff like that catches on with ordinary people and the madness of crowds.
