Shadowfox0 Might be a short show but what it lacks in length it makes up for in HISTORICAL RELEVANCE Golgi and Wilson are some of the best set 1 openers now in Phish repetoire. . .I admit Wilson Fluffhead MFMF and Buried Alive are probably the best ever openers but look at one of the best Phish shows of all time in 1994 at Sugarbush it opened w Golgi Apparatus trying to The Squirming Coil Squirm away. . . That show is amazing it has my favorite ever Phish tune The Lizards and it has an amazing HH which got me hooked to begin w in 2001 at College not Goddard but a GOD of a DARD college Cedarville university which was then just a college but while I attended my Junior year in 2003 when Phish went back on the road after The Everglades and attempted to get that magic back lost after the crest of such a great wave that was 1995-2000 I knew NOTHING of this but love the song Nothing and at the time even their shitty stuff like Friday and Mexican Cousin and Round Room and Pebbles and Marbles and Walls of the Cave sounded like Chopin to me . . .I now see that Phish was way better in 1.0 and way better in 3.0 after 2009-10 those rusty years sucked for the most part but 2012-2017 were such magic and it seems they are getting that magic back again in 4.0 after COVID Golgi and Wilson debuts cannot be under stated CANNOT be understated that is important because both are great now openers to start off some of their best shows except flops i had to attend like MPP I should have gone to 8-15-2015 but I went to the Sunday show like an idiot and it was inferior so it is a crap shoot I was always told do NOT miss a Sunday show at Merriweather but that was 2014 when Jennifer was Dancing around stage and Page told us he has been around I been around Trey asks where you been Page and he was always there at least after 1985 . . .oh i've been around awhile i smoked in town a while i layed it down a while oh yes all to say that 8-16-2015 had such a great setlist ON PAPER and the 8-15 one was not as great on paper but the Tweezer fest and the Sleeping Monkey was amazing and then they were on such a high that they tried to keep it going on Set 1 the next night but did NOT actually play the song had they reprised it It would have been cool but they just peetered out to nothingness and anxiety land and said oh shit now we have to play Golgi Apparatus an AMAZING Junta tune disgraced during such a great Phish summer tour 2015 overall I had to go to the only shitty show on the tour 8-16-2015 w such a great setlist on paper but NO jams except David Bowie and Stash 2 of my least favorite Phish tunes DB reminds me of SOAM dark jamming but sometimes amazing but not tonight 2-22-2003 and IT that is GREAT David Bowie but this was just sad and still listed as Jam Worthy I disagree And Stash is a terrible song it is repetitive like Halleys Comet and Julius in all the WORST ways it just repeats the line over and over and not only lyrically but musically which gets boring and sad I love TYPE 2 Stash but it is SO FUCKING RARE This was apparently Jam worthy also the Stash but Maybe so maybe fucking NOT to me This show is needed to be remembered because Golgi and Wilson are iconic unlike say TTE or Friday or Julius or Character 0
