HAPPY 4th of JULY!! < PATRIOTIC PHISH
DOWNLOADS OF THE WEEKEND:
For this holiday weekend, where many will find their way to one beach or another, I am featuring the rest of the Jones Beach run- 6.2 and 6.4. While both of these shows had their definite high points, they each had their rough spots as well. The band continued to unveil their new songs after dropping three debuts at Fenway’s tour opener. The third show, 6.5, was posted on Friday.

The second show of tour sported a superb first set, with the classic, “Runaway,” Foam” opening combo. The “Timber” got surprisingly nasty, while the “Cities” was as thick as the band got all summer long. But the no-brainer highlight of the set is the delicate, and awing “Reba.” My favorite of all any 3.0 version, this one could hang with some older versions as well. Finally, the band broke out “If I Could” for the first time since PNC 2000, closing the set with a gorgeous rendition that was divergent in rhythm and guitar work. This is one tour highlight that has been wholly overlooked by all. We’ve talked about this “Hood” once or twice, I think.

The second show at Jones Beach was the leanest of the three, with the first set “Ghost” being the only jam with staying power. Because of Asheville’s more extensive tour highlight, this “Ghost” hasn’t gotten its propers. And combined with “Antelope” to close a set?! That’s a first. Check it out. Set two is, well, pretty, pretty… pretty, pretty, pretty…pretty thin.
I: Grind, The Divided Sky, Ocelot, The Squirming Coil, Punch You in the Eye, Dirt, NICU, Ghost, Run Like an Antelope
II: Water in the Sky, Birds of a Feather, Drowned > Meatstick, Time Turns Elastic, Waste, You Enjoy Myself
E: Rock and Roll
