DARKH0LL0W This is one of the shows that made me think of phish in a whole new way.
as a huge Pink Floyd fan I tend to like my music a bit darker. Do you like that kind of stuff? then this might be the show for you.

First set- funky bitch is a top version must listen. Good choice for a opener, until they step back into the smoke and let it all go,2001,now it was a great opener! This is when I knew we were in it deep, and this 2001 is fantastic 97 all the way. 97 was a good year for this jam, if you like funk then camel walk is for you. A great combo.Taste!yea i like this placement. a couple of cool down songs make up most of the rest of the set , it is a first set after all,But they did give us one more big jam, Tweezer this was a an unusual version, in a good way, with some great funk and echoes. the sound was amazing you could catch the effect bouncing from all directions. just the way i like it.

so on to the Darkness

The second set is all must listen 97. I SAW IT AGAIN IS THE SHIT.This goes to new places, and is way longer then normal . The piper is one of the best of all time. It was mixed with a llama jam/ birds of a feather jam all the way through. Llama Llama Llama! I kept saying its going into llama. wow!
then things get even more dark with Swept away> steep, I love this song combo. onto the gem of this show. Prince Caspian>llama jam>Prince Caspian. I kept thinking i am going to get my first Llama its going to happen yes, no , well Dont let the set list fool you, it is a Llama jam! Man this will change your opinion of Prince Caspian.Is it just me or was Fishmen going into Rocco Williams before trey changes the jam? what a show! At this point your mind should be mush, so they hit you with a Izabella. nice. and a Tweezer Reprise. OH SHIT
oh yea then a Guyute> antelope enc.
Fuck, what the hell just happened,
that is what most people were saying stumbling out of the place into -10 below weather. The next night blew the place up all over again. Add this show to 12-11-97 and 12-13-97 and you have a perfect end to the 97 east coast run. On to new years and a finish to a major year for this band.

I think this was one of those shows that lost the 91-95 phans that liked upbeat happy phish. but not me, i love it in the Dark.
