its like they didnt get enough songs into set 1, so they shortened every song in set 2 so that they could stick them in there.

Regardless of the length of a few of those songs, they were on fire and tight as hell for almost all of the show.  Last few songs, something seemed up with Trey's fingers.  He had to seriously wipe them off at one point and he just didn't seem like was moving on the strings very well.

But the first 80% was on fire.

Forbins> Mockingbirg!!!  Holy shit, i have been chasing that for 70 shows.  And I felt as though they nailed it.

Major thanks to MBW for the hookup on the tix!~

Cant wait to hear how the recording turned out.

more proof that 3.0 is for stats padders.

great for 80 percent of the show?

youre just happy because you checked off forbins > bird, but you see enough 3.0 shows and youll fill up a stats sheet w/ peaches, forbins, harpua, alumni, etc. 

but thats awesome that they played 80% of their songs well last night.  i'd still bet that they flubbed the ghost build up, if they even made it that far in the song before they ripcorded it for trey's new makisupa comedy bit.

I don't give two shits about stats.  I always wanted to hear it.  And they played it well.  I go for the music, not the Phish rep that I saw "x" amount of songs.  The whole show was great, but you could tell something was funny with his hands near the end of the second set.  Encore was great again, though.
I was just as excited for Divided Sky as I was Forbins.

I had a great time.  The music was great.  Trey's fingers seemed like they were getting sticky.  It was humid as hell in there and you could tell something wasn't right with his movement up and down the fretboard.

I'm changing teams to the fluffer crowd.
I may actually even start to listen to some 2011 shows.

nans. 

Way too many people on the fluffer team, which means you would have to be around more people.  We have 5-6 people on our team tops.  Way better odds of your current teammates leaving you to your own devices. 
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!?!?!?!

It was in the "highlights" obviously.  Only time they've ever teased the theme to Ghost during that "extended" Makisupa intro.

Don't worry guys, the real bvaz will be back. 
And I'm of course kidding around Guy. 
You've gotta like the Waves > Undermind from this run though, right?

Totally agree with mbw. Most psyched crowd I've seen since Utica.

Great, FUN show.!!  My favorite 3 night run since Greek. Jams or no jams, phish is making great mmusic

The segue into no quarter was slick as hell!
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

Remember when they did the "radio-friendly" version of Brother?
Remember what they played next that was declared "NOT radio-friendly"?

Yeah...
