ok, so finally got through this one.

extremely well played show for sure.  while there was once again a lack of deep jams, the jams that were on display were well done.  the set had a nice flow to it.  sure i would have liked the ghost to have been at least 5 minutes longer, but whatevs.  like i said the set flowed real nice.

still my least favorite of the three nights.  i'd put it in order as 2nd, 1st, 3rd.  and the run as a whole is better than anything in 2011, and ranks up there will anything from 3.0 overall.  there was lots of energy, good flow, and they were having fun.  well done phish... NO BUILD ON IT!

highlights of the run IMO were DWD, waves>undermind and c&p>no quarter

The only tune missing from the 3 nights - and one that I'm still chasing - is Simple. I mean we had skyscrapers for cryin out loud. Would have been a nice replacement for some of those 2nd set queefs. I'm not complaining at all about the shows though. Music was awesome

Quoted for the positivity!  :clap:

Ser.  I won't be missing shows there again.

Almost every 3 night run I've done had a distinctive lower crowd energy on the 3rd night --- not these show.  Place was raging all 3 nights!
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

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?
