Phish returned to the Garden last night to capitalize on the week virtually everyone has off (and to rock our socks off). I hung out in the 300's section, but managed to snap a few good photos while suffering from murky sound quality:
Awesome glowstick war started when the band walked on stage and the lights went out. It was fun to surprise them when they're usually the ones entertaining us.
Free - a great way to open a four-night run at Madison Square Garden. Appropriately epic.
Glide> - I'm glad, glad, glad they played this one.
Possum - Trey kind of snuck into this Possum. The band overdid this song over the summer, but I was glad to hear it last night.
Cities - always a bouncy and fun sing-along.
Stash - fun but really short.
Contact> - I loved this one. My favorite out of the set. I love the solo section before the last verse that totally gets into a down and dirty funk.
Kill Devil Falls
Birds of a Feather - interesting set opener. Got me thinking that the entire show had sort of an offbeat song selection, which I liked. There definitely wasn't much filler - every song felt purposeful.
My Friend My Friend
Rock and Roll - a welcome change of pace after the creepy MFMF. The crowd ate this one up.
Bouncing 'Round the Room - I heard some others complaining about how Boncing sort of slowed down the set, but I got into it.
Harry Hood - I love a good Hood.
Bug - kind of a let down after a great Hood. They killed this one at SBIX, but didn't quite bring Bug up to that level again this time.
Encore - the most fun I had all night. After a so-so show, the encore made up for it in song selection and energy.
See you tonight!
