Review by Piper72

Piper72 This was a great show! Metro was slow to fill at first but later packed with a rowdy, appreciative crowd. Mike's band is ridiculously tight, full of energy and fun to watch. Scott in particular is hilarious (his delivery in Cities is priceless). Mike was smiling and cracking obtuse one-liners ("we're going to go backstage on set break and eat 120 per cent cow"), and even did some crooning during "Normal Phoebe" (I think) while looping his bass. "Crazy Sometimes" and "Waking Up Dead" were interesting to hear outside of the Phish context. Overall Mike's band, while incorporating many of the same elements with the addition of a percussionist, Craig Myers, who was rocking a "Mike Side Dyke Side" shirt), was less wandering with their jams but more complex rhythmically and intenintense dynamically. The lights were pulsating, alternating colors against grey backdrops onstage. Instead of the interactive sound pads around the stage, during the second set they passed a wheel with different light-up pads to the audience, that they could play to the same effect. And, of course there were the light-up guitars. Overall, an intense, high-energy show with an excellent band, led by our favorite Cactus.
