BadMustard 4 years later.... still amazing.

Well, I had tickets to Hampton but it was not in the cards. Luckily, still made the last show of the first tour back. Charlottesville is amazing. Went up with three buddies from Athens, GA and stayed with an old friend. Snow on the ground, great atmosphere, great set-up. Thanks Colin, Sam, Tyler, and Rob.

Walked into the show and could not have been happier. Not great seats but the venue is really great and sound was fine (they should really go back soon).

AC/DC>CDT was a great way to be introduced to live Phish. Rockin' all around. The Sky pause was mind-blowing, an affirmation of why I had listened for so many years and why I had come so far. Sally is spot on perfect.

What can be said for Naked Guy. I hope I meet him and get to buy him a beer one day. Energy never let up the rest of the show. That Ya Mar really pops. Best I have heard to the date and probably the most significant of 3.0 to this day. Soooounds great. Thanks dude.

Rest of the set is great. Charlottesville shout out in Old Home Place (really amazing town).

The second set really flows, that's all that needs to be said. Just have to listen. Great playing accompanied by great energy. The crowd and the band were together this show.

After four years seeing the band all over the country, this show seems like a precursor of things to come. A wide open Tweezer and a very good Light. Good transitions all around. A sweet, sweet, Sweet Virginia to melt the cold night allll together. Suzy>Golgi>Antelope is rock and roll glory. Trey felt like himself.

Good times had by all and, IMO, a top 3 show of 2009.
