I didn't really care for the tune but it would've been pretty impressive if they practiced enough to re-learn it for one final go a round

combined w/ a stellar MSG jam taboot.

I too was expecting a TTE and would not have been upset.

Wait, are they breaking up again?

Rumor is they're just too happy and too healthy to go on :(
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

The Jimi cover sounded like a High School band was playing.
So thin and lifeless.
Trey should chat with John Mayer.

I dunno - Trey makes plenty of flubs in his own songs too.

I saw a rumor on reddit. But they also alluded to "fishman's surgery" which I'm pretty sure was super minor, and happened right after Mexico this year... So they may be a little out of the loop.

They can stick to their "dank" phish memes

Pretty sure Fish's wife says the shoulder thing was fake news.

Yup, 2 rumors rolled into one supposedly?

Where have you guys been? Fishman IS Trump. It's part of a very elaborate gag. Think about it, have you ever seen them in the same room at the same time? No.

How can people hate Esther?  That song is pure, unadulterated Phish.  A song I know I'll never see but would be so happy.  So many songs are on that list:  Esther, Billy Breathes, ForbinBird, Mountains in the Mist, Pebbles and Marbles, TMWSIY.


Anyway, on topic..... this ASIHTOS might be the coolest thing they've played.  The outro for this jam is so incredibly unique and cool.  It gets to a space that reminds me of the interstellar late-night grooves of Cypress and Fukuoka.  It's so weird, but so together.  Trey doing his divebomb loops, Page keeping it together with his organ lick....  just wonderful wonderful stuff. 


It's really cool that we got to see Real Phish at least once in 3.0 before the end came.  This is real Phish to me.  This is the band.  3.0 has been fine and great many times over, but this is finally the real Phish with no boundaries.  Anything goes. 

And it's funny because Tuesday night when they hit Piper, I was a little disappointed because I had a thought like "aww man, it's going to have a jam..." because it's not a surprise.  The best thing about this run has been the surprise jams.  I want more of this.

I think I got it but he's such a spaz he'll probably never open this thread again

I heard Trey fired Fish backstage last night and they are bringing in the drummer from Smash Mouth as a replacement. 

All Star opener!

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.
