Review by Phunky_Mango

Phunky_Mango I attended the show and I have to say, that it was one of the best shows I have seen. The soundcheck added a hype around the show in which I did not think it was going to deliver. Never go into a Phish show with expectations. I did, and I was BLOWN AWAY. The song choices, placement and flow of the show just had added another layer of Phishy-ness that some shows just don't have. The crowd was so locked into every note, you could feel the energy and synergy between band and crowd.

Once The Curtain With opened, we all knew it was going to be one of those nights. The rarities started to pour and I was very happy to catch my first Tela and Driver. Add in Mango, Buried, Pebbles (!!), and Reba, and you have a delicious first set. Again, the flow of the set is just outstanding.

A lot has been said of the 2nd set already and rightfully so. Many fans have been chasing a Mr. Completely and it delivered. I think everyone in attendance knew that once TYL dropped, it was going to be a Reading 2013 type of version. We were ready for it to open up and boy did it ever. A MUST HEAR version. No breather was to happen after and BBFCFM > Tweezer lit the venue on fire. Begging for a cool down song to just take a drink of my beer, and here comes Shade. Again, the song placement in this show was just perfect. I needed Shade more than anyone to just BREATHE.

I was surprised Most Events Aren't Planned didn't get a bigger reaction. I may have screamed louder for this song than Tela. Such a treat to catch MEAP live and it was a song I have been chasing ever since the Bakers version. Everything else played was simply cherry on top. Makisupa, Suzy (haven't caught one in about 30 shows) and then the very fun encore of PYITE > WTU > Julius.

I have seen some excellent shows, but Camden N3 just had that different feel to it. It reminded me of a Bakers Dozen feel. The feeling that you know you are witnessing something special for Phish and its fans. If you were there you know. The old "Never Miss a Sunday show" was in full affect. Do yourself a favor and just take off work on Monday to catch a Sunday show. You will not regret it.

It may have been mentioned in this thread, but Camden N3 on paper, reminded me a lot of Alpine 08/09/2015. Its a must add to anyone's IPod.

Simply put, it was one of those shows that makes you feel like it was your first Phish show. A circus of lights, where dreams can take flight.
