not much to talk about in the first set, honestly. if you are one who hates songs like alaska, army of one or petrichor, you're not gonna like this set. in the past i've talked about really not enjoying petrichor, but i gotta say this one worked a little better for me. maybe because we were outdoors in the open air and it was drizzling. anyway, plasma contained a bit of nice jamming, and kill devil falls went type 2 in earnest. saw it again > sand was a rocking way to end. overall, just a very average first set. on to the next.
set 2: here is where on paper this show looks weird. it almost looks like two first sets, but i assure you, it was not. turtle in the clouds and jibboo both performed rather standard, then as jibboo wrapped up, they dropped into fuego. now, i'm not kidding when i say that the "fuego -> cities -> final hurrah" segment may have been the best jamming of the tour, or at least up there (in my opinion, of course). both segues were absolute butter, and both were also preceded by incredible jams, particularly in fuego. i believe this is the best fuego in years, possibly since the monster version at the mann '14. truly must-listen phish.
unfortunately though, like a bunch of shows this tour, just as it seemed like they were getting going, trey decides to pump the breaks with some relatively uninspired song choices. fourth quarter could've been something like light > no quarter > chalkdust instead of what it was. i'm not a guy who absolutely hates when they play farmhouse or numberline---in fact sometimes the small jams in those can be quite good---but after the roll they were on to start the set, these choices just sucked a bit of energy out of the crowd. that being said, the chalkdust was indeed quite good.
lizards and suzy encore is obviously awesome, great way to send everyone home. trey thanked the maine fans and talked about how these feel like hometown shows, it was very cute. camden will be nuts, can't wait.
