BeTheBeacon This night was the best I've ever seen Phish, bringing home the 'never miss a sunday show' anecdote. Someone call the Chicago Fire Department, because Trey n Company burnt....it.....down! Right away this night felt different than the previous two, people were ready to jam and had an itch to scratch. Exploding into the first song you could tell the band had the same itch. Roastin! Energy was lit, and crew were scrambling after the song to huddle up and assess the situation to put the right play in action. Everything was definitely starting out ALL RIGHT! Coming out of second or third song you could tell tonite was special, freakin Trey killed it so hard he was left drooling on the stage after fucking slaying the beast-swear he had to run to get a drag off a bowl or cigarette just to come down! The air was scintillating!! You could see it in their eyes and mannerisms, the band knew the house came to rock, and they were going to deliver firing on all cylinders. Petrichor was awesome! First time live personally, and what a beautiful ride! I always wanted it this way was exactly the way i would have wanted it, pure.....no holds barred.....shredding!!! Arena rock at its phinest as the band pretty much formed into voltron to crush any demons in the world with the rage of light and heat. Thanks CK5-great work with that octopus of a rig!!!! Ive never seen such painted air, and the nuance and control of a room was incredible.....we all floated for a few minutes or more in that bliss! Boys sure did grind! Fuck yeah Trey, fuck yeah Band! What a first set!!!! And those around me couldnt believe we still had another set to go....fuck.....yeah! Buddy called hot mess fuckin carini, n yes, we got a giant carini to start off second half. I love this rocker and it always shakes the room. Quarter into Cities.....heaven! Monster takes on these songs and amazing to see Trey just kill every song with almost perfect execution, couldnt make a mistake, but thats what happens when you fall into the perpetual groove and are zoning. Goota jibbo n twist were all melty, people just gettin weird, so you gotta get weird with it! Happy Halloween everyone! The whole thing-crowd, lighting, glow stick chucking, exploratory oratory notes n hues, came together so horribly wonderful it was shocking, in the best way possible!!! Lovin indoor shows n lovin dark n light halloween vibe, rock gods slaying demons of darkness! Plasma n CZ just added even more heat to the barn burner and you got a four alarm roaster! And wait.....is that.....fluff...head? Fuck yeah it is, personal fave and was exactly what was needed for the send off and cherry on top that blew this night off the charts! Well played Phish, well played sirs indeed! Thank you Trey....thank you Band!!!
