Review by Speen_E

Speen_E As others mentioned, first set didn't quite have cohesion, but hearing some of those bust outs was eminently worth it; treys sanity delivery was also quite funny to me, you hear him booming and powing at seemingly random intervals. Love it for sanity. SOAM great set closer with a lot of energy. First set overall: each song well executed (awesome mockingbird narration as well) and most very danceable, but the flow wasn't there to surrender to.

Second set was a whole different story. With the jerry stuff/alpine history in mind, my friends and I were calling dancing in the streets as the dead tune to be played, and maybe it was just because I wanted to hear it, but it felt like mike was tickling the powerful opening (particularly reminiscent of 7/5/77) through the whole second set. Ultimately kinda sad that nothing came of it, but holy shit we got a set in return. Carini flowed well and mellowed out, that mikes was incredible (and just what I wanted from mike that night), tweeze was the same, and I've wanted to see dirt forever so I was really happy to see such a quality cut with the whistling. Tweeprise always a great closer.
Encore: as stated, I was really hoping for a dead tune, and I think they caught everyone off guard with contact, though that's probably the weirdest contact I've ever heard (props to the band for expanding their jammable tune list) and the Frankenstein was immense

The tour of jamming unjammed songs. The weekend of classic phish. The night of vintage. In my opinion.

I also recognize 5/5 is high, but this show deserves way more than 4/5
