Review by Dinner_in_Alaska

Dinner_in_Alaska For me, sitting solo this night I was never alone. In a room filled with friends known and unknown, my friend and brother on N2 was the music and the music from start to finish was a beautiful dream. I want to highlight how wonderful the build up to our lift off was. First, having Suzy at her first show and the band opening with her song was just exactly what Phish is, fucking crazy! Suzy Greenberg’s first show? GTFO that’s fucking amazing! Loved it. A proper rocker 46 Days then led us into my very first and long sought after Plasma. This next thing I say may be weird, but TMWSIY was the launching point for me. I just felt that during the beauty and magic of the quiet notes ringing out over us (not a single talker in my section to boot), that we were collectively passing through a portal to a new place that is mapped out for a brief time in the music being played. My expectations soared after the Hebrew prayer was sung and with the closing notes of TMWSIY we launched into a Wolfman’s whose ragging peak of a close will speak for itself for years to come. Listening back in the pause after, a guy in the crowd is yelling , “Sing Monica!” but Trey wanted to tell the story of Esther and so they did. Having only recently caught my first live version (see The Gorge) I was just as excited to get it again at my next run of shows. Our story of Esther ended were the Story of the (good god almighty) Ghost begins! What a way to end the first set, my heart was already so full.

I could go on and on about the 2nd set, but I’m not. It speaks for itself and many others have left their wonderful thoughts on it. I will only say this, the Your Pet Tweezer is My Pet Tweezer. That beautiful uplifting jam is my jam. It’s been the background music in my head nonstop since that night. As I sit here in my projects office alone in the Arctic writing this review, in place of writing about the rest of the 2nd set, I’m going to once again listen to it and follow the road map through the portal of space and time to that place, even if I can only glimpse it for a moment. I highly recommend you do the same. Cheers.
