yEEt_1331 A solid Night One.

Other than the opening Sand > Disease which got some jamming treatment, set one was mostly standard fare. Well-played, flowed pretty well, not a whole lot of complaints from me.

I feel like I may be in the minority when I say I think Possum is a better opener than it is a closer. Just my two cents. I was slightly surprised Twist didn’t go deep, but they followed up with Ruby Waves which stayed relatively close to home while stretching its boundaries. Say what you will about the Sci-Fi Soldier songs, but they’re pure and unmistakably Phish songs, and I enjoy most of them. A Wave of Hope was phenomenal. Neither sprawling Type II exploration nor standard perfunctory run-through, Trey plows through the last chorus and sends the entire place TO THE MOON. Jam of the night. Finally, Howling -> Piper is a fun exclamation point, and a Harry Hood encore never fails to send everyone off feeling good about Hood.

No, it’s not your pantheon level Dick’s show by any means, but there is plenty to like here, and was still a whole lot of fun. 7.25/10
