Phish Saturday Throw Down at The Rocks

The phish roller-coaster continues as Trey and the boys continue their adventurous setlists and jam explorations. Saturday night’s Red Rocks show saw the first performance of ‘Mound’ since the 12/31/02 reunion show and man did they nail it. They also dropped the first ‘The Curtain (With)’ since it’s disastrous Coventry-closing performance where the band started the song in the wrong key and had to begin again. This version, on the other hand, is dead on. You can tell they are practiced and hungry to nail these songs – playing like they have something to prove.

As if that isn’t enough, the band also played the first ‘Esther’ since 9/30/00. They sandwiched a monster second set with a tasy Rock and Roll>DWD>Free opening sequence and a Harry Hood closer. All in all, quite an evening, who can even imagine what’s in store for night 4? If you haven’t already been doing so, check out live streams of the shows, as they happen, here!

Phish @ Red Rocks Night 2

Phish took to the rocks again last night for their 2nd of 4 nights at the historic ampitheater. They delivered a fun and eclectic show with a big 1-2 punch of The Who’s ‘Drowned’ and fan-favorite cover of the The Talking Heads ‘Crosseyed and Painless’ to open up the second set. The highlight of the show has to be the 2nd set jam sequence of Tweezer > BDTNL > Fluffhead > Piper> A Day In The Life. That right there, is the stuff that dreams are made of. Keep it coming’ boys!

Phish Tour Kick Off – Red Rocks 7/30/09

Phish kicked things off with a bang last night at Red Rocks – offering up a monster show complete with jam anthems Divided Sky, Stash, Possum, Mike’s Groove, Ghost, and David Bowie. The band nodded to the beautiful surroundings and uninhibited sight lines with a fitting Divided Sky opener. The rest of the first set reads like a pretty standard first set of tour featuring staples like Horn, Moma Dance, The Wedge, and Horse/Silent. Overall, a well played set with Trey sounding practiced and ready to rip.

The second set, on the other hand, is a different story filled with massive jams and explorations as well as a Billy Breathes bustout that’s just about picture perfect. Overall, the band definitely seems to be playing in a more relaxed and jammy feel than the Hampton run or Summer Tour Leg 1 – something that has left the Phish community excited and salivating for what’s to come over the next 2 weeks.

Phish @ Alpine 6/21 Tour Closer

The end of the road – last night, Phish took a bow on the first leg of their summer tour and their first tour in 5 years. This tour exceeded many a phan’s expectations including my own and left us all salivating for more. Let’s hope that Phish 3.0 can stay happy and healthy and keep things rollin’ down the road for more magic in 2009 into 2010 and beyond.

Phish – The Creek and The Valley Tour Close Out

Tonight, Phish closes out the first leg of their summer tour with a Sunday night performance at the classic summer getaway Alpine Valley in East Troy, WI. The last two night’s have witnessed some pretty stellar song selection and fantastic playing. The second set jam sequences from Deer Creek are phenomenal – AHIHTOS > Drowned > Twist followed by a monster Tweezer > 2001 > Suzy Greenberg > Possum taboot. First time bustouts for the tour include The Connection and Sleeping Monkey at Deer Creek followed by Makisupa Policeman and Hendrix’s Fire at Alpine night 1. The band’s clearly pulling out all the stops for the end of the tour and it’s exciting to think of what is in store for this evening. Gamehenge classics Tela and Cololnel Forbin’s > Famous Mockingbird are yet to be brushed off by Phish 3.0. Anything’s possible, but my bets are on Hood, First Tube, Slave to the Traffic Light, Divided Sky, and The Curtain for tonight.

Phish @ The Fox

Following their biggest show of the summer to the 80,000+ festivarians at Bonnaroo last weekend, Phish played the smallest venue of their summer tour last night – the intimate 4,500 person capacity Fox Theatre in St. Louis. The most hyped show of the summer and probably the hardest ticket, the Fox performance seemingly fell short of expectations (at least on paper). Despite the ‘McGrupp’ bustout in the encore and a 2nd set Mike’s Groove, the new song, ballad, and repeat heavy setlist has fans hailing this as the ‘sleeper’ show of the summer. Let’s just hope the boys are saving up for the tour-closing 4 show run comign up this wekend.
