Review by Energy51

Energy51 I was late to the game. I fully admit that. This was my first Phish show so it's a bit nostalgic for me as I look back on my brief fandom. I started following Phish around 2008 but it took me a few years to get to the show.

We were on the left side of the lower 3 sections. I remember the opener being a big deal, a Phish debut! The start felt a bit sluggish until we got to the gem of Set 1, Divided Sky. We also got a second debut with Dr. Gabel that was solid. Neither debut took away from the energy building in the crowd after the boys shook off the dust.

I ran into my childhood friend, Dennis, between sets. He had at that point attended well over 100 shows at that point and was not impressed with the set. When you have that kind of history, I guess that judgment is fair. Set 2 rolled around with gems like Weekapaug Groove and Limb By Limb; which were a treat for me. The really shined in highlighting the set along with 46 Days.

Closing with First Tube was great for me. It was beautiful. 11 years ago today, I still feel the same way after I just re-listened to the entire show. At the time, Dennis was extremely disappointed with that as a closer. I wonder if he still feels the same way. Overall a good show. Not the best one but still quite enjoyable. Give it a listen on Live Phish.
