kyleindeed This show was exceptional. Easily the best show of this young tour and another example of why you “Don’t miss a Sunday show”.

First set highlights were a fast track Curtain With, well placed intricate Reba, “yet another solid” jammy Wombat (starting to get Moma Dance treatment and recognized for the vehicle it is) and S1 closer WOTC in fine fashion.

Set two is an all timer. Sorry if you don’t agree, but it is. Crosseyed opens S2 for (I believe) the 3rd time in a row the boys have included Gorge as a summer stop. This is the best one from Gorge, and I REALLY love the Xeyed they played in 2013. Twist is the perfect transition out of Xeyed (just like in ‘13 mind you) and delivers a great showing as a sign for more jammy Twists this summer (hoping for one in Raleigh because Ric Flair would approve... WOOO!!!!!). A beautiful Fluffhead pops up to the delight of those in attendance and delivers. But what is surprisingly the best part of this show is the stunningly mesmerizing SOAMelt to end this set. Speaking of 2013, this Melt surpassed SPACs version as (IMHO) the finest version of the modern era. Further proving why this is still my phavorite Phish song and shreds all non believers into tiny little bits.

Wilson Encore (naturally) and the deed is done. I’ll be coming back to this S2 for years. Happy listening!
