coreychung1 Tonight is gonna be under rated. I get that. In terms of the standard of what they can do, it's not "IT". But God damn if I didn't have a blast tonight! As a local, Fenway was just a supreme atmosphere for this band.

Before I go in, these last 3 shows have been a good reflection of summer19. Fun moments of dazzling Phish with sprinkled in mistakes or moments of no direction. But the band it's continuing to show good signs of longevity as well having the most fun I've seen them since bakers dozen (Trey is a 10yr old with the wireless hookup)

First set was really fun, I thought tube, runaway Jim, and Brian and Robert wrap up set1 notables. Good everything's right jam & blaze on. Nothing to write home about.

Set2 features a very good sand (not crazy, but tone and direction had purpose). Sand>axilla>Mercury is a great pairing. Mercury is a clear highlight of tonight. Featuring multiple points of full band interplay and synchronous modulation. Wading is a decent breather, needed to hit last call. 4th quarter finished strong I thought with an above average Fuego jam slinking into the santos, and a ripping zero. Heavy ghost vibe/tease into Santos.

Love a nice bug. Coil was a perfect way to cap off a beautiful Fenway night with the boys. Tonight will definitely get downplayed, but I wouldn't trade this weekend for anything. Everyone & the band are just having a blast.
