    Horse->Silent not being played on NYE was kind of surprising too

  2. jdub Says:

    Soul shakedown opener would have done it fir me. I saw the last one and you knew then that something special was happening. Seems they save that one for the nights that when everything is in alignment.

  3. Lycanthropist Says:

    good evening all!

    finally made it back home! been traveling and seeing friends and family for a long time now.

    now to find my good sources for the NYE shows and start playing catch up!

  5. albert walker Says:

    1st set set 12/30 was damn near perfect

    7 below and Ghost on 12/31 were devine

    Theme was very slick

    Simple had a real nice ambient, spacey jam at the end

    DWD was just a huge mid 90’s style shredfest

    had to leave 4 nights for the kids to talk about with the long break
    they built up the hype and blew the roof of

    for 12/29-12-31 III they finally hit their stride for 2009 and just slayed it

    this was a great week of Phish right here
    high grade music
    very professional presentation all around

    no way to predict what was nice
    not as formulaic as you would expect from 2009 Phish

  6. albert walker Says:

    with all the busts I was thinking of Trey new all along which he was saving

    the band favs

    it could not be coincidence that Corina, Tela, soul shakedown, jesus left were left after all the bust outs

    can’t get over how hot and well played this set was without any huge jams

    Bowie and Runaway were tightly played and stellar 09 versions but fairly contained to the structure

    fit perfectly in my fav 1st set of the year by a mile

  7. MP Says:

    ..from Miami with love. All of it.

  8. Mr. Palmer Says:

    no huge jams in that 1st set , but damn, What the Use was a nice way to get some spacey/ambiance in there.

  9. GuitarPicker420! Says:

    @lycan – highly recommend the senn441 sources from padelmike. They sound really balanced and clear.

  10. BrandonKayda Says:

    Miami Piper is insane

    I am amazed at the themes they hit in under 10mins

    Gotta love Phish 3.0

  11. albert walker Says:

    real deal Phish my friends

    some new school kids got thrown into the fire in style this week

    kids did not know what hit them

    for others it was like coming home for the first time

    can’t beat it

  12. sumodie Says:

    Besides not seeing them for 6 months will just make summer tour that much more satisfying.

    though not quite as satisfying as seeing them for the first time in 2009 🙂

    got my last beach day in today; now ready to step inside the freezer -flight leaves shortly.

    what a GLORIOUS nye run!

  13. jdub Says:

    Not to look to far into the future but the swept away and what’s the use make think of a future mikes>swept away>what’s the use>hydrogen>weekapaug. Loved when they did in Hartford on 7/1/00 and I hope they bring it back.

  14. jdub Says:

    Correction, it was mikes>swept away>steep>hydrogen>paug on 7/1/00

  15. BrandonKayda Says:

    I’d love to see a Mike’s get busted open with some of these new bustouts

    Dark Mike’s->Lifeboy would be nice

  16. c0wfunk Says:

  17. Lycanthropist Says:

  18. jdub Says:

    Mike’s and paug need a fresh segue, i bet that is one of the developments of 2010…

    Lifeboy would be an excellent segue

  19. Lycanthropist Says:
