    Can someone point me towards the evidence of Duder’s lost marbles?

    I’m on a relisten. I might have been overdoing it because I literally felt like that Light was speaking to my soul. Butter – during the end of that light jam you can hear Page start trying to lift everyone and they follow him. Its glorious. The thing peaks like nothing I’ve heard in this era. I havent heard his guitar that dirty and nasty (Keyphrase here, in quotes) “with the band following him” in a type II segment since 2.0.

  8. ThePigSong Says:

    Right on Duder. Home Team as in your homies?

  9. Duder Says:

    @ Pig

    Well yes, but the actual/original Home Team

    If you’re not in the know, you’ll soon will be

  10. Luther T. Justice Says:

    Home Team is the Dude’s inner city gang in Charlotte. He brought his big city know how from Chicago to Charlotte. Saw it on Gangland.

    “Light was speaking to my soul”

    ^ yup… that’s its purpose; satisfy your soul!

  12. Duder Says:

    Ha! lolz

  13. Dorn76 Says:

    Great recap @butter, your feelings come right through.

    This show reminds me a ton of SBIX, not the song selections really….just the sound of special sauce being slathered all over the place.

    This Light. Holy crap.

  14. Kaveh Says:

    Just finished listening to last night: well done!

  15. BingosBrother Says:

    Whatever we’re waiting for that phish seems to know about is gonna be epic.

    $$$$$$$$$$

  16. BingosBrother Says:

    $$$$$ was supposed to be a BUTTER sandwich. Respek to da Butter man.

  17. bobby weird Says:

    i have to relisten to Alpine Light, but this may be my pers fav, what with the new Page sound and all. (That is new, right?)

  18. makisupa Says:

    inside out disco diana ross @ 6 minutes into Sally

    Light is the most consistently original Phish song, love it! Might be their best song night in/out too, haven’t heard all the 2012’s yet.

    another win for the Phish team! have fun in the south

    Mound and Reba, old school first set.

    How does this night compare to the other nights? I was at the cabin, but the setlists all look great.

  19. marcoesq Says:

    @Pig- I’m in! Is the meetup board working?

    @Duder- Isn’t the Home Team clan via WSP? I’m a fan of ze Panic

  20. tela'smuff Says:

    Home Team was better in 2011 than 2012.

    If you like the genre called “music” then you won last night

    ^ Sounds like the Universe is kicking down some soul-shaking goodness in terms of music.

    Thanks, Universe!

    Amazing weekend. Thanks to kaya rob and stash for the perfect home base. Mia mrsmia and hazelmango for the great Sunday afternoon. Gdad for the Saturday boost.

    Great to see again snow silly df and meet jtran garretc (and dad) voopa slick mssilly aw and all others. We have a great group here on the BB

    Great music all weekend. Last night the 2 setter we’ve been after. First set nonstop dancathon. 2nd brought IT. The light>Sally with the reprisesque build blew the roof. Worth every penny of the weekend.

    Cant wait to get home DL and relisten to the weekend.

  24. Duder Says:

    It isn’t supposed to be associated directly with WSP… “It’s a state of mind”

    but yes… i hate WSP but these are the folks’ who have brought me backstage to almost all of my WSP shows I’ve attended with them.

  25. marcoesq Says:

    Word duder, I’m a WSP fan so nbd. Just remember Schools rocking their gear at Bonaroo ’02 and early ’00’s shows

    Are you gonna be around in Bham? Don’t know a ton of people going from here, trying to see about a meetup spot.
