Fun show. Nothing really memorable. Great to see and Handful of you guys. Sorry I missed some of you too. Spent most of the second set sitting at a picnic table, catching up with an old college buddy.  :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

That second set looks incredible, can`t imagine being able to concentrate on conversation with that in the background.
Just got up off the couch to drop a deuce while the band belts out Fuckerpants.

Tuned in at the beginning of Nothing. I enjoyed that and the remainder of the first set. Second presented some good jams and songs a couple of segues that were good and a couple of song endings that were not awesome at all.

I'm gonna go back and listen to this today.

Bowie had China/Rider jamming in it.

It was far from incredible but there was some sweet funk in Sally and YEM.

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.

I, for one, liked the first set better. Great Bowie. Awesome Page-Trey sequence in Possum. Seriously, don't skip that one. Even NMINML raged pretty hard by the end of it.

The second set seems like it should have been a jam fest based on song selections, but the actual jams felt perfunctory or even throwaway, and it seemed Trey was far more interested in what he wanted to play next than what he was playing at the time.

Yes. We immediately left the table to start dancing when Sally started up. Glad we did too.

Wasn't digging last night at all. cant win em all.

On the positive side, I guess last night felt like a standard 3.0 show as opposed to the other 4 I saw this run, which were all above par for 3.0 standards. The bar has been set higher!
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

some awesome playing last night but a couple of those transitions in the second set were really rough
sure we tend to ramble, but that was a 3 page off topic tangent on crack and doses for breakfast?

Hey, I don't know anything. Please help.

One of the most perfectly standard YEMs ever - nothing shocking and yet - perfectnin its standard perfection including a sick vocal jam!

Loving 2015 phish.

Bad shows are still ridiculously good.

Yes, recalls the excellent version from Gorge '09. Enjoyed this one.
