Review by Dino_Stomp

Dino_Stomp My first show - I have decided to go back and write reviews of each show I have attended with notes from my recollections. Some may be short, or not, it will include whatever comes to mind.

To me, this show represents a glimpse into freedom as my first foray into live music as a 16 year old. I was astounded that I could smoke weed "in public" here, previously being relegated to my childhood bedroom and friend's backyards. in the middle of the night. Yes, this place was different. I had given 'Joy' a couple spins on the recommendation of my show buddy prior to going, but otherwise the entire catalogue was new.

Distinct memories of this show include Mike rattling my bones in the DwD + Weekapaug intros - the latter especially, with my first text to my (more seasoned) friend a few days after the show asking him, "which song had that crazy bass solo?". Sanity's insanity was a highlight, who knew you could just randomly yell in the middle of a song / ballad and still be coherent?

Light was probably the only song I confidently recognized from the new album I had lazily pregamed with, and my brain skipped a beat when the song didn't stop where I expected based on what I had previously heard. You mean this version was almost double the length of the song I thought I knew?

Interesting footnotes from my first experience also include thoroughly enjoying My Problem Right There, only for this version to be the last ever played (so far)...additionally, I hated 2001 in the moment, only to later come to understanding of it's greatness. Why did they keep repeating the same theme over and over? To rookie me, the jam was a never ending intro that lead to a 10 second "song" every few minutes. It was confusing to say the least.

Give this one a spin, or don't - it is worth hearing if for no other reason than to understand the context of a Fall 2010 show, 1.5 years into Phish's return.

Try these on: Rock & Roll -> Carini -> My Problem Right There, Light
