Very weird show with about zero jamming. Still would have been fun...
If we could see these many waves that flow through clouds and sunken caves...

Is it just me, or does that look like the same wook that's on the fake cover to Party Time.

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

I walked out at zero.  That was one on of the worst phish shows I have seen in a long time.  Completely phoned in effort minus the timber.  The storm was insane and did make for a very unique experience.  I did set one with wtu and emay.  Set two i was alone.  Besides the mound restart i thought set two was a flaming pile of fail.   
Can we talk about the Dead?  I'd love to talk about the fucking Grateful Dead, for once, can we please discuss the Grateful FUCKING Dead!?!?!?!

Trey did come out for the encore and say, "you're too kind. Waaaaay too kind.". I think he knew it wasn't great.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

I think this is one 3.0 show where being there probably would have made me enjoy it less. Still seemed like a snoozer over the stream, but being in the rain would have made it much worse I would guess. Jim, Timber, Suzy, and the last few songs were pretty good, but everything else was  :tte:
