Review by PacifiedFromMob

PacifiedFromMob I understand the disappointment many have, but I enjoyed this one. The first set was great and while the second set didn't have much jamming or high energy moments (Soul Planet and Energy, along with Midnight/ Boogie were the highlights for me, along with a beautifully played Petrichor), the playing was great, and it was sort of amusing to see all the inaudible sighs as the band moved (mostly) from one slow, ballady 3.0 song to the next. A friend-of-a-friend standing nearby left early/mid second set after complaining of the song selection (He hates WOTC for some reason, too, so he was already pissed at setbreak.), but I was happy to be free of his...energy.

Then there's the encore: I would argue it may be the best of 3.0, and one of Phish's best ever without guests. Pebbles is always welcome, and Sea of Stars was a nice calm interlude before the two scorchers at the end: I never thought I'd ever see an Isabella, nor a Chalkdust Reprise, much less back-to-back. But I did, and it was good!

I'll always wonder how many other people left this show early: their loss.
