Haven't listened back, but the Plasma was a blast at the time.


Really liked the Mule as well. Not usually a fan of that one, but the Page/Mike showcases were pretty awesome.

I thought it was a very good 1st.

And nicely done though light.

Although I did fall asleep during light lol.

Really, 2nd wasn't bad at all, if you rearrange that second set to create a little more flowing energy, it would be leaps and bounds better.



Finally listened to that first set without distraction and that was really, really good. The Boston Cream section was a lot fun, Plasma was strong. I'd like to see Frost become the new Roggae or Waste.

That second set started decently but was backloaded with buzzkill IMO. To me the show's over after Lizards. I think the show would've had a more favorable opinion if they put a Tweezer after Lizards or a jammy Sample. It wasn't a bad show per se but a clunker against everything else that came before it.

I wouldn't even call it a clunker. Overshadowed by other nights of this run: sure.

Pre show expectations check is funny.

But that was not a great show.

In any context.

And I'm a supporter of the show but I think more tempered superlatives are in order.

That's called phish discussion.

You think anyone that disagrees with you is a troll.

Petrichor needs to be played exclusively in the first set. I mean, it's really a nice song, but if it's getting in the way of what you hope to be a boogie-throwdown 2nd set? Eh.

^ And by 'nice', I mean it requires you to step back and appreciate it. The way Trey wanted you to appreciate TTE. Shit's just not built for the 2nd set.

They're totally going to throw this in somewhere late in second set tonight...



They'll think that they're being clever and everyone here will get super pissed.

Sunshine of Your Feeling:

That is just about the coolest fucking thing I have ever heard. I would have had a heart attack if I would have been there. Pretty sure I am having heart palpitations right now hearing it for the first time.
