looks like it would have beena real fun 2nd set ala utica and ac2.
I haven't heard a note of this but this looks like it would have been great to catch.  not everything pre-hiatus was long jams.  they had fun on stage too.

BUT..........if anyone is ever near me at a show and they cut off ghost at 4 minutes, you probably want to exit the proximity real quick.  I don't think I'd handle that situation well.

I miss the jams too but I like that they throw in sets like this every once in a while (at least how it appears it will sound).  I give this show a positive from the paper setlist except for the short ghost.

Possum is a good, wild song for this band.  Its fun, jammy, and allows the energy to be pushed over the top. 

An under-appreciated song I'll take any day. 


I'm really curious though if Trey has been burning again...  because, after such time away, an innocuous hit or two can make a WORLD of difference in your way of looking at and observing things, especially with fretboard patterns on the guitar.

looks like a pretty dope 3 night run, I have not heard a single note aside from 2/3 of the first set of 8/15. 

best 3 show run of 3.0?
We are all and we are all we are
Far flung bits of Sun and bits of Stars
From the  ocean from the land from the
beginning to end
Backwards forwards back toward
we belong

Probably as good as Berkeley. But not better.

Happy for all the paugers who got to see these. Hopefully they bring this energy to Colorado.

Best 3.0 run would be SBIX

UIC run has inverted flow (1st night being best, 3rd being weakest) so I'd never consider it for best run

But UIC 1 set 2 is far and away the best 3.0 set, for me

I had the time of my life tonight.

Felt like one of those few shows where the crowd/band interaction had a distinct impact on the playing.  That is why i see this band.


this was the most amped crowd i have been a part of in 3.0 by a mile.   :wtu:

You may want to ammend that stance.  lol


UIC is interesting, because it gives everything about Phish:  the jamming, the creativity, the goofyness, the contemplative depth, the unexpected, the abnormal, the extreme.....
