I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed myself and the show. Setlist wasn't perfect but you take the good with the bad.

Giving Fluffhead a listen.  I remember think while watching last night that it was very well played.  Best of 3.0?

I love this couple of sentences regarding Possum.

Quote
If I see someone with a Possum sign, I will tackle them. Speaking of Possum, it wouldn't be 2011 if we didn't get another version. Preceeded by a MOMA Dance that found Trey stretching his legs on the solo a little, we had yet another Possum. This song must die. Why? There are two theories. Holdsworth needs the royalty checks or there's some inside joke.

Does a show have to have mega bust outs to considered good?

I had a great time watching from the couch. The band looked happy and subsequently made me happy. Well-played too, so no real complaints from me. Go ahead, abuse me now for liking Phish.


No, but only six songs that haven't already been played in the last week or so makes it seem like they were kind of going through the motions for a big chunk of the show.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Wow, i can't believe all the meh reviews. Y'all need to get over the fact that they are going to repeats ton of songs, that's just the way it is this tour. Can't let it take away from the quality of a show.

Last night was way better than both MPPs, Camden and Mansfield imo.

Light Up or Leave me alone, Gin, Sand, DWD and Maze were great. I can't wait to listen back to that Light Up or Leave Me Alone, Trey was really going off.

The Alpharetta crowd is bonkers. The south knows how to party!

Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

LUOLMA was really nice, great fiery playing from Trey. Sand -> DWD was all great as well. And the Hair Metal licks from Trey in Maze were really fun to watch and hear.

And the little Page interlude between Bug -> ADITL was beautiful.

Mister Charlie told you so.

it should be Light Up or Leave Me Alone, but will probably be Maze...
I agree that LUOLMA should be the choice, but Fluffhead hasn't been picked on this tour yet and last night's was very well played imo.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

Calling that Ocelot "sneaky good" is on the money. It was a dope rendition.

I really enjoyed the whole first set quite a bit really. Energy going into the Gin jam was nice and bouncy, felt like something was really gonna happen. Felt like they could have kept going after they peaked it but were just happy that they hit a nice peak and called it good.

Gotta echo everyone else on the Sand>DWD>Maze enjoyment, although obv I felt Maze could've come about 10 minutes later. If they cut out Carini and Meatstick and expanded a smidge on a couple other tunes (2001 perhaps)  that set would have been a lot better.

2001 is getting played just as much as Possum, but you don't hear anyone complaining. Love that tune. I just hope when I see it later this summer its an 8 min + version rather than a 5er. Eh, at this rate I'm gonna see it like 4 times so I'm sure one of them will be a heater.

Psyched for tonight! Couch terr party at my crib with Hicks, Caravan and Burmesepython.  :rawk:

 :lol:
I agree that this is how it is which is why I took a different approach this tour.  it still led to negativity for me.
I have nothing else to say since I am trying not to be negative.   :-D

shows are still fun live though.
