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. Here we go with N6. I am fully on board at this point. I am loving this. These shows have been great.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Set I opened with a Phish debut of Chocolate Rain by internet legend Tay Zonday. Meme referencing in the best late dad type of way. I bought this song on iTunes back in the day.

We then go into Ass Handed which is a crazy Fishman 1 minute jam

>Free. God I love Free and that riff. Composed section is bliss to my ears as usual before jumping into some funky jamming over the Free groove. Some great early set jamming that doesn't go too hard too early. Around minute 8 it transitions into a more rocking jam with Trey meaningfully soloing. It peaks back into the "free" refrain and the main riff.

Weigh comes in next grooving hard out of the gate. It doesn't stray very far from the Rift album version at all, but hey, I love me some Rift. Trey sounds particularly beautiful on here.

Undermind went into quite a little funky jam there before going back to composed.

It then broke into a cute little Oh Kee Pa with a >The Dogs

>The Dogs from Oh Kee Pa. It was energetic and had the dogs.

Destiny Unbound is a song I am unfamiliar with. It was a pretty fun ride to listen to. It didn't stand out too hard, but I enjoyed it.

Divided Sky. Oh shit. Other than YEM, it's like the ultimate Phish song. Let's do this. This is an EVENT. It was really sloppy and eerie at first, and then it plopped into place in that groove. The melodic section before the first applause was flawless. Then the quieter melody comes in, and then the song speeds up. Trey flawlessly plays notes playing the Divided melody with all of his heart. 9 and a half minute mark has that resolve note. Its perfect. After the melody is over, is goes into a great energetic type 1 jam. It then goes back into the resolved melody. Gorgeous. Flawless version. Surely that's set closer.....

Nope here's Things People Do. A rarity. Its strange. Take it or leave it.

We then get Sand, a Farmhouse favorite which went into a mellow jam at first, but took off towards the end. It was a great set closer.

SET II
We open with a cover of The Mighty Diamonds' song Have Mercy. It jams a little bit on a reggae groove before they bust into CDT

CDT opens a little slow. Fantastic jam that feels really jovial. It went really long with many parts. It is a must listen as far as the Baker's Dozen goes.

We then hear a cover of the group Hot Chocolate (hidden theme reference), You Sexy Thing. Mike doesn't sound perfect here, but the groove is undeniable. It ends up going for a 6 minute jam. It progressively gets more and more lowkey until we're just hearing Fish in space. Super cool jam.

We get a quiet ">" into Mercury. Mercury grooves right away. Another great Sigma Oasis song that was around for years before the album. Its a great straightforward chill jam. They break back into a Mercury refrain and then jam with more space. It gets really upbeat after a ->You Sexy Thing again with a nice little peak, and then it goes abruptly into Backwards Down the Number Line.

BDTNL is upbeat and very nice to hear. The jam goes pretty long and super upbeat. Towards the end we have an explosion of passion and shredding from Trey. The energy is extra high. In the last minute we get the song outro. NIce cap on there. That is a great tune.

Boom into Rock & Roll. I have never heard Phish do this before, and whenever I saw it on setlists I always assumed it was the Led Zeppelin song. But this is honestly a much better fit for the band. This song is super fun! Very upbeat jam section to close Set II

Encore started with Fee complete with the megaphone. It goes into a short 2 minute mellow jam at the end. We then go into Space Oddity the legendary David Bowie song. Great acapella. Great show.
