Review by fhqwhgads

fhqwhgads The Meat > Reba and Vultures from the first set stood out to me in this show. The second set is one of those quintessentially Phishy bob-and-weave seguefests that culminates in one of the longest Weekapaugs I know of > Antelope. Wipe Out seems--kind of like the Moby Dicks in 7/11/00--almost designed to push Fish's limits: not that either are technically too demanding for a drummer of his calibre, but just kind of one of those in-jokey things that got carried on throughout the set and works in its own favor. Mirror in the Bathroom is thrilling, for me, and was my first exposure to that song. One doesn't often see a song segued out of, back into, out of again, and back into again, let alone Chalkdust or (almost) Weekapaug, but sometimes you get more than you paid for with Phish... oh, piddle on that, you always get more than you paid for with Phish!
