yam_ekaj very solid phish show tonight. let's get right to the review:

undermind has never opened a set, which is a pretty cool fact. other than that this was a standard version. a fun way to start a show, to be sure. tube was first highlight - went type 2 pretty quickly, and a sick return to the blues section out of a major key jam. funky bitch and steam were both awesome versions, great to see steam in the first set. very good placement for both these songs. my sweet one! always very fun, as is NICU (one of my personal favorite songs). friend was a little bit of an energy suck, but an ok spot for a breather to be sure. no men's next--also cool to see this in the first set. a solid version--went into a very nice major key section--although certainly not an all-timer. the horse->silent is always nice, although this was the first sign of trey's composed-part problems for the set. he nailed david bowie though. while i love this song, i also like the fact that they aren't playing it as often, because when they do they really enjoy it. this is an awesome version. thought it would end the set, but we get a bonus coil for good measure.

second set was a heater. ghost started it off--very awesome jam. many hose peaks. would recommend listening for sure. a bit of an abrupt return to the ghost refrain, but after the sick jam it was more than earned. axilla next--a cool spot for this. got the whole place rocking. SYSF next - this is another awesome jam. they were in a blissful section that seemed standard type-2 fare, but then all of sudden some awesome minor key funk. sounded almost like an antelope jam. very sick phish. what's the use emerges, which is never the wrong decision. similarly, love to hear billy breathes---a perfect cool-down song. next came DDHVL, which is just such a great addition to the phish rep. so far, was shaping up to be an unbelievable set. then numberline started. as i always say, while it's not the best song to hear start, by the end they always get you. some awesome playing by trey here. but definitely sucked a little energy out of the room when it started. energy reignited when fishman dropped into hood, and this is an awesome version. went type-2 very quickly, and stayed in a sweet minor key jam until sliding into the hood ending. great version. unfortunately, trey completely botched the intro to rise/come together. he got it together eventually. definitely don't love this song, but whatever--by the end the room is rocking. golgi is a great way to close - trey again seemed to forget a couple of parts, but i love hearing this song always.

bug zero encore is very standard, but an awesome way to end a rocking saturday night show. hoping for a serious throwdown tomorrow.
