Random Thoughts

I'm currently watching/listening to Trey Anastasio Band from Austin City Limits. The Joker was at that show. I think it's kinda freaky to listen to shows I've attended. To see the video of a show I went to is even weirder. I was at the Phish show with Heather and my Japanese friends, Yuh and Jun, in Las Vegas (9.30.00) that they used for the Phish DVD... Live in Las Vegas. To this day, it's one of my favorite versions of Mike's Song. That Vegas show, on Trey's birthday of all nights, featured a lot of random goodies like a favorite song of mine that Phish rarely played... I Saw It Again. Trey also flubbed the lyrics on Esther. I dunno if it's the last time the boys busted out Esther. But it was the last time I heard it live. And I was digging a cover of the Rolling Stones tune Emotional Rescue for the encore.

Anyway, back to Trey Anastasio Band. Here's the setlist from Austin City Limits on PBS:
Night Speaks to a Woman, Drifting, It Makes No Difference, Mr. Completely, First Tube
Mr. Completely is a song that's a big hit or miss. Sometimes the jam is not fun. They did a good job this time. Drifting is one of my favorite Trey band tunes so I was pumped to hear it played. I think it's funny that a lot of my friends that are not into Phish like Trey Anastasio Band better than Phish. Part of me is like, "Phish is 100 times better." That doesn't translate too well to them. At any rate, seeing Austin City Limits made me miss Phish for sure. At least Widespread Panic will be back touring again.

By the way, this Trey show from Radio City rocked! It's worth the $10 bucks to download.
