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.

    this ‘Love is Freedom’ almost has a ‘tweezer’ like sound in the beginning. sweetness.

    OK. I tried to give a recap of Oakdale. It’s under the comments on the Oakdale post.
    Keep in mind I am not a musician do I am writing based on emotion and the feelings not what notes he hit here and there!

    Enjoy. I hope it’s OK.
    Set I only. Set II coming soon

    @aw what was the date on the charlie miller you had on from april 71

  13. voopa Says:

    Congrats pageside!

    Anyone see that report last week that said 1 to 2 sodas a week doubles your risk of pancreatic cancer? Crazy.

    The good beverage news was that hops contain silicon, which helps strengthen bones. Which is why I’m having beer this afternoon, and no soda.

    @pageside: congrats bro (regards to the little lady as well). Twins is amazing news…glad to hear abou these life events on a board initially dedicated to phish thoughts! A fine community indeed.

    Remember: sleep when they sleep. I kid u not.

    spinning the schoeps source from last night

    a little quiet but good
    pretty clear

    band sounds amazing though

    Trey sounds very clean (clear notes), and confident

  17. neemor Says:

    Miner, you’ve got mail.

  19. lastwaltzer Says:

    Thanks, I was digging the alligator

  20. neemor Says:

    Tell you what:
    The Friday post jams are the best yet, Miner.
    That’s pretty much a ‘Best Of’ list of every major peak of Phish, to me.
    Sick shit, this Ghost.

  21. jdub Says:

    AW, I think you’ll like last night show.

    That love and freedom is something else. I hadn’t heard it before last night so I’m not sure what story is with it but the jamming in that song was full of energy, they definitely were able to get the building resonating with a this march like groove. meanwhile Trey is just shredding with great confidence.

  22. neemor Says:

    Robear, btw…Love is Freedom is very Tweezer reminiscent.

  23. albert walker Says:

    on the push on till the day from last night right now

    this band sounds really good
    I’m sure they are all pretty stoked to get this pay check and are playin their asses off

    Trey has not lost a step since Miami
    in ways his notes and tone sound even crisper and cleaner on this tour
    very nice so far

  24. neemor Says:

    aw: he definitely played with some dexterity that we haven’t seen in a while. TIII mentioned it, too.

  25. jdub Says:

    Congrats Pageside, you’ve got hands full. I had a similar feeling about life when my kids were born.
