Here is the opening night to Lakewood’s Fourth of July weekend. While overshadowed by the fireworks of the next night, this show has quite a but to offer. The second-song “Gumbo” set a funky theme for the opening frame in which they debuted the actual song, “Meatstick,” rather than the lyrical or melodic teases in Lille, FR and Champaign, IL respectively. From this point on, “Meatstick” swept the nation, culminating in its Cypress bookends. The second set featured not-stop action, starting with the oft-combined, “Twist > Piper.” Following a thick second-set “Moma,” Trey brought “Mountains in the Mist” from his solo band to Phish for the first time. A big-time “Antelope” punctuated the second set.
