Last night, Phish performed for the first time at the intimate Harbor Center NTELOS Pavillion in Porstmouth, VA (just 30 minutes away from the Mothership). While the show offered up a number of highlights and solid playing for the most part, the setlist left something to be desired the band’s playing was notably less exploratory and ‘loose’ as the opening 3 nights of tour. Four shows into the tour and yet to repeat a song, the stage is set for Hartford 2010 – look out for yet-unplayed gems PYITE, Birds of a Feather, Yamar, and oxy-years hits Scents and Subtle Sounds and ASIHTOS. It’s gonna be hot people!
