08.07 | The Gorge

George, WA

Phish at The Gorge - there’s simply nothing like it. In the first show back in five years, we collectively felt the feeling we forgot as Phish played a show that meshed seamlessly with the one of the grandest surroundings in live music history.  Playing two sets with highlights galore, the band crushed the first night of their two-night stand on the hallowed grounds of their Northwest home. Smoking right from the start, the band never paused, writing an entire show worthy of many re-listens- though isolated from the internet in rural Washington, listening back is a pleasure I’ve not yet had.  What was once again evident was Phish’s spirit of adventure, taking any opportunity to tear off a unique piece of improv, and creating an all-out musical odyssey.
