Phish layed it on heavy last night for their final night at Jones Beach. A mostly jam-less but well played first set was capped off with a Split Open And Melt that really lived up to its name. The second set was pure magic with the exception of the new song ‘Twenty Years Later’ that read like page 3 of Trey’s diary from the day after his arrest – something best kept to himself in this phaner’s view. An unexpected highlight of the night was the ‘Backwards Down the Number Line’ which had the whole crowd dancing and singing to this Phish 3.0 insta-classic. Other highlights are the My Friend, My Friend, and second set ragers Free, 2001, an Twist con ‘oye como va’ teases taboot. Fuck yea’ Phish!
