Review by RhombusintheSky

RhombusintheSky This was an excellent night of music punctuated by two very different but memorable sets. Set I was filled with Phish treating us to a veritable greatest hits compilation that was accentuated by an absolutely wild Simple. It seemed like the first Simple jam fizzled out, and just when you thought they would move on to something else, they dropped into this sinister and evil feast for the ears and eyes that showed everyone that, after the "NYE" show, they were not gonna let us off the space ship yet. Just looking at set I on paper, and you have enough to make even the most jaded phan happy.

However, during set II, Phish took the Simple blueprint and ran with it. NMINML was outstanding and seemed like it would go on forever. And the Piper...oh man the Piper. I looked over at my friend, and said to him, "Is this really happening?" It was scary and beautiful and ultimately euphoric. IAWITW was super cool and edgy. Lonely Trip was just beautiful and is another reminder that, while we might be alone at times, we always have each other to fall back on. You are truly never alone with this band. WOTC peaked and then peaked again...and then peaked again. I think I still have my hands in the air in triumph.

I shouldn't be amazed anymore because Phish has done this to me time and time again. I chase "that" feeling over and over. I'm sure you do too. We are so lucky, and we should all be grateful that we have these moments.
