Review by themayor

themayor Hello all, I am a new phan as of a year ago. The last few weeks I have really been getting HEAVILY into Phish. But for the past year I have on and off been enjoying their shows. But I keep a journey spreadsheet of all the shows I've listened to. I am journeying through the Baker's Dozen. This is my first time listening to a show again in full. I watched this show when it aired as a DAAM episode early on. But I don't remember much besides that Lawn Boy.
Sample started off Set 1 with a pretty decently lengthy 9 and a half minute jam. Already going for it. Love that.

Lawn Boy. Okay. I had heard this before. Its the Jam themed day. They jammed out fucking Lawn Boy for 30 minutes. Almost flat. Lawn Boy is like a 3 minute song that never went into a jam. 30 minutes. It was epic.

And then we got a >My Friend My Friend, another Rift song that I've fallen in love with. The longest one ever. 11 and a half minutes. It was spooky and weird.

>Stash which went deep and weird. I zoned out pretty hard during it while driving, and I just got lost in it. But I think that's a good thing.

And then they bust out this stupidly awkward and loveable mutant Gin. It's grungey and gooey and gunky and its so wonderful. Perfect set closer for Jam.

Set II opened with Fuego which was a dirty-riffed song that had passed me by when I listened to the record recently. I enjoyed it live much more. A strong Type I jam that shows that Type I can go deep.

Thread was a pleasant surprise. I always am pleasantly surprised when I'm reminded it is normal for songs to be live way before recorded release in the jam band world. I loved Thread on Sigma Oasis this year. It doesn't jam here, but the composition sure is awesome. It's only Thread's second ever performance. Prog Rock Phish in full force.

We then enter Crosseyed & Painless. The classic Talking Heads cover. Another 30 fucking minute jam. One in each set?? What the fuck is happening? This was epic. Its insane. It fills every emotion, suspense, tension, happiness, sadness, panic. This is a must hear.

Makisupa serves as a palette cleanser for being only 4 minutes long. It is what it is. Police man come to my house.

End of Session quite honestly passed me by. Can't recall it.

Tuesday was a super energetic 7 minutes that was very fun to listen to. I recommend this. I wasn't familiar, but I will look into this song more. It it seeming to be the set closer but on the final instrumental sting, they bust into Cavern.

>Cavern from Tuesday doesn't really jam much, but it serves as a great way to end the set. A classic that is always welcome.

Encore gave us a bright and jovial Julius with a happy go lucky jam, and >Lawn Boy reprise. A perfect way to put a bow on the Jam night.
