Review by themayor

themayor Still been listening to a good amount of Phish, but a lot of LivePhish radio and studio work instead of full shows! Hopped back onto the Baker's Dozen grind the other day. N11 here we go.

See that My Grave is Kept Clean is a fine opener.

PYITE is upbeat and rockin' with slick jamming.

Party Time... Well I just didn't enjoy that one. The jam felt like it went nowhere, and the song itself was very irritating. I had never heard it before.

We get BBFCFM which is always ridiculous and fun.

Dinner and A Movie goes pretty steady, but not too memorable.

Ocelot slowed the pace down a bit, and jammed nicely.

Poor Heart. It is what it is.

Winterqueen is a pretty 3.0 song and it had a nice jam.

Bold as Love was nice, and we closed with First Tube which was funky and groovy.

Set 1 was okay. It didn't grab me. After hearing set 1 I was shocked to see the .Net rating. I hoped set 2 was better.

SET II
We begin with Dem Bones which was, again, fine and fun.

NMINML goes deep and already starting this set off to a better start.

Everything in It's Right Place was a debut by the band, and not much else.

What's the Use was another not too memorable track. Passed me right by.

Scents and Subtle Sounds is a nice song that I don't appreciate too often. It was good to hear here right before the end of the set.

Caspian was gorgeous and soaring, great jam.

Fluffhead was performed well, and it was an exciting closer.

Encore was Frankenstein which served its purpose at the end.

Overall, this show as sub-par. I don't know why, but the setlist didn't grab me very much, and the jamming felt empty. I don't blame them for it this deep into the run, but I do hope the remaining two shows pick it up a bit!
