freshquince Great review and pretty spot on from where I stood last night. The first set was fire, incredibly high energy, tight, funky, gooey and heart-felt. Page was a hair quiet for me too-we were down close to him and he was signaling repeatedly for more volume; that said, his work in Possum to end this incredible show was top-notch and crystal clear.
Fish’s drumming on Scents was mind-blowing-watching him flurry across every surface in front of him, building the jam, opening the hose, was very moving.
The band is at the best they’ve been since 2.0 IMO. If you’re an old fan, and it’s been a minute-give yourself the treat of revisiting live Phish, as recordings of these shows can’t capture it (obviously. )The new light rig, the sounds, the synths, the cow funk…last night made me feel a lot like it was August of ‘97, in Limestone. And even a little like my first show at Townshend Park, almost 32 years to the day (much has changed but much remains). Except for that backdrop-nothing like it anywhere in the world!
Support & Mbird is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
