Quickie 420-Word Recap: NIGHT 2 STRAWBERRY
by @taopauly

Saturday Strawberry donut... Strawberry Fields loomed but what else?... Back home in LA, Shuggie Otis gets cranked up nonstop. Naturally, my lovely (common law) wife @change100 suggested Phish would debut the Brothers Johnson version of Strawberry Letter 23... Bumped into @LazyLightning55, who gifted me his Strawberry donut! I gifted it to my bud Girtz... A cappela Strawberry Fields Forever opener incited the feisty crowd for N2 kickoff... Halley's thick strawberry goo lyric... MOMA funk-train pulled into Penn Station and flooded MSG. Got lost in the undertow of the jam.... Funky Bitch bombastic Gordo... They remembered how to play Mound... Short and sweet Roggae... COIL ended the set on a LEO-centric night... Found @lawnmemo at setbreak and went to my seats behind stage for set 2... LawnMemo displayed his slick moves on the ladies. Those upstate NY boys are SMOOTH. Phishy chick brought her dressed-up cousin to MSG2. They adored his helmet. Cousin was a deadringer for Real Mafia Housewives of Staten Island. LawnMemo better not get whacked by Vinnie the Tongue for trying to get down & dirty with his girl. Then I'd get clipped too, because you know: NO WITNESSES... DWD peaked in spots I expected a Trey classic ripcord. DWD jam unlocked the next level for Phish. LEVEL UP... LawnMemo totally called Birds. Said it was due up in the rotation and BAM!... Strawberry Letter 23 delivered. Vermontified soul funk brothers... PAGE EDM! All the ravers love it. All the ladies swoon. All the bros say "WTF mate?" Page's new bestie James Murphy approved of his new shirt and EDM-inspired selection. Murphy + 13 Snapchat models (who never ate a donut in their lives) jacked up on ketamolicaine did Guantanamo Bay naked pyramid in Page's dressing room at setbreak... Fishman beastly on Page EDM jam (with Trey on Marimba)... All of These Dreams gave Fish a well-deserved breather after the Page porn soundtrack jam... MELT didn't get too weird, nor to evil... DWD (Reprise)! As LawnMemo pointed out, DWD included another jamming segment... Shine A Light gave me goosebumps. Caught glimpse of what the Stones at MSG in the early 70s would have been like (minus all the pharma-grade blow)... TRIPLE ENCORE? This is why I bitch about Phish cheesing out encores, when they could pull a hat trick out every night... Guess there's no Peaches donut on the schedule?... Cities came out of nowhere. Phish played the Talking Heads' cover for MSG/NYC noobs... My Sweet One capped off the funtastic show... Two down, 11 more to go.

Quickie Recap: Night 1 COCONUT
by @taopauly

MSG was always sacred ground for me. Saw my first-ever Dead show at MSG when I was 15 years old. My path never the same since that magical night... Bakers Dozen donut theme out in full force... Felicified's Federal Donuts provided free donuts at entrances (while supplies lasted). I got the next-to-last donut: a specialty coconut... Didn't know how vital the donuts would come into play until show kicked off with a cover of Shake Your Coconut. The boys played off a loose coconut theme all night... Saw N1 with Senor. We followed Phish in Japan 2000 tour. The MSG October 1996 run was the first shows we caught together. Fitting that we returned 21 years later to kick off the Bakers Dozen... Stellar seats three rows behind the stage, hovering between Gordo and Fish... Close up views of CK5's new light rig. Thrilled the LEDs are dunzo... Jittery crowd. Oodles of excitement. Hadn't felt like that frenetic, frantic vibe since 2009... Martian Monster first repeat of the summer tour... Forgot how the floor of MSG bounces... Schwilly jewish girls LOVE Senor... Timber in the 2-hole!... Pigtail = mehtail but they needed to dig deep into their bag of tricks if they don't want to repeat any songs in 13 shows... Party favors kicked in by Reba. Had eyes closed then opened up to see bright red lights and I forgot I was at a Phish show for several minutes... Crowd went berserk for Moonage Daydream. Bowie love early on... Thought they'd open run with Tweezer, but it launched the second set... Seven Below jam of the night?... Spun out chick humped a giant happy face balloon, but the screeching noises were so loud, one of the security guards almost 86d her... Throwback time with Billy Breathes... Senor was the guy screaming at top of his lungs during Sparkle... Everything's Right jam cut short for silky smooth SLAVE. Thought they'd save it for N13. Got my fav tune on N1!... Suzy energy booster set closer...almost... A capella cover of Nilsson's Coconuts bookended the coconut donut theme... Double dip encore! Semi-bustout with Mango Song. Nothing special, but felt like they needed to close out with a smoker. Senor said, "How about that Zepplin tune they play?" And Trey instantly launched into opening riff to Good Times Bad Times... I dunno how many times I saw GTBT at MSG, but Trey ALWAYS smokes the shit out of it... Fun start. Which donut/covers get introduced on Saturday?... One down, 12 more to go.

Quickie Couch Tour Review: DWD Dayton-Style
by @taopauly

Another 20+ min jam. For a third straight show, Phish went deep with one of their second set tunes. This is a trend I can definitely get behind. On Saturday night, it was a splendid Simple, then a groove-heavy Carini on Sunday, and now... DWD... The Dayton DWD went deep.... The opener was a an old TAB tune -- Tuesday -- that finally got called up after toiling in the minors for a decade... Peaches was a little sloppy, but we'll take anything we can get... Roggae didn't get too out there... Another debut: Crazy Sometimes. Gordo tune. Weird as fuck, just like Gordo... Six-song second set anchored by Ghost > Wombat > Chalkdust in the 4Q... Silk-smooth Page finished the night off with a Coil encore... Four shows in the books, with one more to go in Pittsburgh before the circus reaches NYC.

Quickie Couch Tour Review: Lumpy Head Sunday
by @taopauly

Final leg of a three-show run at Northerly Island... Sunday Funday delivered oodles of fun, plus another debut and another big jam: Carini. The 20-min version is all you need to listen to today to get you fired up abut Bakers Dozen... In the first set, the chatty Chadtastic Chicago crowd got treated to a 6-minute Tube. Short and sweet, but the cow-funk-mongers squeezed as much as they could into that stretchy-pants funk... Carini anchored the Chicago finale. A 20+ minute groove-oriented Carini kicked off the second set... Despite the initial rumbling grumblings about 20 Years Later, the jam out of the nostalgia-tinged tune delivered a bombastic surprise... 2001 dance party in full swing. Even Fishman could not contain his excitement and grunted James Brown Sex Machine lyrics... Another noob tune: Thread. This rookie has potential. Reminded me of a Soundgraden B-side from the late 1980s (before Chris Cornell et al got famous for being a "grunge" band)... Double-dip encore with a pair of rockers: Wilson/Zero.... Three shows in Chicago dunzo. Two more shows on deck in Dayton and Pittsburgh before the psychedelic circus reaches Manhattan Island.

Quickie Couch Tour Review: Saturday SIMPLE
by @taopauly

SIMPLE!... That's all you need to know. Simple. 27+ minutes. Jam'd the fuck out hizzle my dizzle Saturday Simple schwizzle... Oh, and they debuted another new TAB tune, named after a popular Mexican beverage... Gordo wore black lipstick. As my boy Mitch said, "Mike looks like a 75-year old Estee Lauder model"... Knew shit was gonna get weird during an extended jam in Martian Monster. Something clicked and the boys remembered how to jam. Kicked it up a notch and blasted off... Two down, one more to go in Chicago.

Quickie Couch Tour Review: Three Noobs on Opening Night
by @taopauly

Crisp/dank stream courtesy of mdawg! He made couch tour possible. Thanks brah...

Summer tour kicked off with a curveball: What's the Use. Asked us that question? Themselves? Who knows? WTU came out of nowhere, which set the theme for the night... Gordo rocked out in wild outfits from the get go... B&B inserted in the starting lineup batting in the 2-hole. That's good/bad depending on your outlook on Phish... Wolfbrah's funk flow... First time played: a capella cover of Good Summertime... First of three new songs: Everything's Right... Performed with Trey Band earlier this spring, but called up from the minors after a stint in the Cape Cod League. Everything sounded like More's little brother. Highlighted by badass jam with heavy Page synth/keys.... Jam of the Night spawned from a noob tune in first set?... Swear I heard Trey/Fish scream "Glaze on!" during Blaze On... Low energy Fuego? Most of the night half-notch slower all around... Your Pet Cat > Golden Age > Your Pet stood out. Trey wanted to play Golden Age earlier but the band fought him on it. They finally gave in after Cat mayhem... Spacey 2001 teased and teased yet blue ball'd cuckblocke' by dad rock... Second new tune: Leaves (written by Tom Marshall). Needs some work like all new tunes... The HOOD everyone was waiting for. Stuffed with juicy teases/licks from Mountain Jam to WTU (Reprise)... Any Exile cover is fine with me and Shine A Light was a welcomed mid-4Q slow tune... Julius attempted to inject much-need energy back into crowd before show ended... Double-dip encore. Third new tune: Love Is What We Are... Weakest of the new trio... Golgi closed out the first show back... Shook off rust with a mix of old/new. Three new Phish tunes in addition to an old timey cover... One down, two more to go in Chi-town.
