Here we have Saturday night’s Gorge show, an affair that showcased Phish’s more rock-based jamming. The clear high point of the night was the monster “Rock and Roll” that opened the second set, which remained a summer highlight. A centerpiece “YEM” anchored the middle of the set in laid-back style, while a growing “Number Line” got into some significant late-set improv, segueing into “Piper,” whose fast-paced jam closed the thematic set.
The first set featured an opening bust-out of “Mango Song,” included a completely original take on “Tweezer” and made engaging runs through “Wolfman’s” and “Antelope,” with the latter standing out as a weekend highlight. Definitely a show that delivered high-octane psychedelia- and several standout moments- this capped band’s first west coast run since 2003. Enjoy the weekend folks!
