2.12.10 - Boston (Balaji Mani)

In order to enhance coverage of side project shows I am unable to attend, I have decided to try out a new section of Phish Thoughts centered around side projects performances – Side Project Reader Reviews. For the rest of this Trey tour, and Mike’s upcoming tour, I invite you, the readers of Phish Thoughts, to craft your own reviews of shows you attend. These reviews will be posted on a separate page of the site, exclusively reserved for your reviews. However, I am not interested in posting silly narratives about one person’s evening or experiences, rather, I’m looking for astute musical observations and analysis. Try to make these reviews between 500-1000 words, though I reserve the rights to edit down your pieces if necessary. (I will always edit for grammar and flow.) Also, please don’t be offended if your review is not posted. I do not necessarily intend to post every single submission. I will only post well-written reviews that focus primarily on the music. (Try to keep the first person out of things as much as possible, as that will help you stay on topic.) Anyhow, have at it! The only show I’ll be at is Kansas City, so I’ll be welcoming contributions for all other shows, including Mike’s tour. For now, I present to you the inaugural reader review by BogHog2001 about Trey’s show in Boston last night.

    Good afternoon, every one!

    I agree, Robear, I just stopped listening to the Miami Run after a week of spinning them over and over. I kept finding new things I loved about each one.

    Set 2 of NYE really does it for me. One of those 45mins to an Hour where Phish removes you from your head and bounces you around their created universe.

    I can’t wait for the universe to expand this summer.

  2. SillyWilly Says:

    and Im getting super excited for Trey in Milwaukee on Thursday! man, its good to be a head.

  3. neemor Says:

    I’ll tell you what, Trey knows how to kick off a show, though!
    The infectious lyrical circle that ‘someone’s coming and I’d like a review’ from Trey and his backers got the party started right!
    From the get-go, it was interesting to watch Trey compose this pocket-orchestra into a tight unit, and watching him guide these now well-oiled musicians through changes and send them off when it was time for the ground-funk to swell. Images of Carnegie Hall brought a smile to my face.

  4. Robear Says:

    good call, Silly. I’m playing ‘Ghost’ for my neighbor. Just listened to ‘Piper’ again too. sheeeesh

    I’m blown by how tight and polished TAB sounded the first night in Charlottesville. Haven’t listened to any of the others, but they came out firing and sounds like they haven’t let up a bit.!

  5. SillyWilly Says:

    I just thought of something:

    Im pretty hungry right now….I love Phish and I love food.

    If you ever run out of things to write about, Mr. Miner, maybe you could write about what food goes best with Phish? Like maybe talk about the best bars and restaurants around famous Phish venues or the best ideas for lot food.

    I don’t know if its ok to suggest topics, just thought it might be cool.

    I wouldn’t mind helping out, too. I could do some research. (haha, thats pretty self-interested) You do so much work for this site and its really appreciated.

    pageside- Well done! In my best George Costanza- “Your boys can swim.” “Your boys can swim.”

    “sumodie is a smooth character, indeed.
    He came with a lovely friend that went by the name ‘Type III Jamming Personality Disorder.”

    Good times Neemor? Can’t wait to hear the past couple of nights.

  8. neemor Says:

    I like the idea of that topic, Silly.
    White whine goes with Sparkle

    and I’m pretty sure you’d want to pair Melt with a nice merlot.

    Especially the JOTD Melt from Friday, 8.10.97.
    Splaying that one right now after a beenball session.
    Silly is the word.

  9. neemor Says:

    cub, goot times is the word on the street.

    There’s nothing quite like putting faces to these names I see here daily!
    BlackBoard meeting are something else, man!

  10. neemor Says:

    ‘goot times’ in my sharpest Hungarian lilt.

  11. flarrdogg Says:

    I’m cool like that. Seriously though, that is some weird shit that my post ended up way back there. I blame Canada.

  12. flarrdogg Says:

    Whoa- Am I living in a parallel world approximately a half hour behind? May be time to lay off the angel dust for a while.


  13. garretc Says:

    Hey El Dude, saw the speedskating post on the other thread, that’s pretty cool! It’s hard for me to imagine being that good at anything that I’d be in the national championships for it! It’s not, however, hard for me to imagine digging the winter olympics, as I myself am a junkie…

    Glad to hear all you TABers had a marvelous evening last night!

  14. neemor Says:

    Part of the reason I purchase 2 liter bottles of Iced Tea from the grocery store to stock the fridge with instead of soda is that Iced Tea doesn’t get ‘flat’.


  15. garretc Says:

    Genius Neemor! I’ve never been much of an ice tea fan, I prefer my tea hot, but that really is a pretty ingenious beverage solution…

  16. SillyWilly Says:

    you enjoy myself is a box of fine chocolates

    tweezer is a big ol’ cheeseburger

    time turns elastic is sushi: you either love it or you hate it.

  17. neemor Says:

    The music I’m listening to now has created this entire community, a community that comes together occasionally to share in the music I’m listening to now.


  18. neemor Says:

    Nice Silly.

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    Mike’s Song is immitation crab cakes because the song like the man is vegetarian.

  20. Robear Says:

    Neemor, buy tea bags, make sun tea in your own glass bottles, add sweetener, refrigerate.

    It won’t go flat, either.

  21. pagesidehighschool Says:

    Drumroll Please…………….

    I am happy to announce that there are two new phish phans in the world! Dylan and Conner, my identical twin sons born yesterday.
    I now understand the meaning of life, it is life itself!

  22. SillyWilly Says:

    I second Robear’s advice, Neemor. You can control the amount of sugar (or honey) you put in.

    You can patent your brew and call it NeemorNectar: Good with the ‘bane.

  23. SillyWilly Says:

    Congrats pageside!

  24. neemor Says:

    Nice pageside! Congrats!!!

  25. Robear Says:

    ba, da, da, da, da, dum

    CONGRATS! pageside

    I didn’t know ‘you’ were expecting!

    Now you’ll be on my sleep schedule for awhile!
