Phish Retrospectives: NYEMSG Night I

In the first of three nights at the Garden for New Year’s Eve run 2010, Phish laid down a rock-heavy, hits-heavy performance that didn’t miss a beat from start to the finish. The first set clocked in at nearly 1 hour and 45 minutes, with an ending suite of Bathtub Gin, Fat Man in the Bathtub (first performance since 10/31), Timber, and the double dose set closer of Golgi and Character Zero. Needless to say, energy was flying high leading into the second set.

The band capitalized and delivered a best-hits-esque second set that followed a similar path to JB II Set 2 2010, with big hitters Tweezer, Light, Hood, My Friend, My Friend, and Axilla I. The overall vibe was straightforward rock-your-face, with a playful psychedelic undertones in the form of a fun and peaking Fluffhead and a space funk’d 2001.
