fhqwhgads I think the "Most Shows Spell Something" gimmick on 8/30 took a bit of wind out of the sails of the setlist construction this weekend at Dick's. There are a few flashes of inspiration in the setlists, but for the most part, an artifice detracted from the thematic consistency. Anyway, no real jamming highlight in the first set, and the Type II in the second set is limited to Carini and Piper, which are admittedly brilliant. Phans discuss transitional years in Phishtory, and this run feels a bit like a transitional run. Fall 2013 would bring some much-needed piquancy to the mix, and possibly portend greater heights to scale over the next few years, crystallising particularly in 2015 and 2017.
