Couch Tour Recap: Alpharetta #1 - Hotlanta Heartbreaker
Phish better hope word doesn't get out that they've been practicing witchcraft in the Bible Belt. The zealots and moralists get freaked out by hocus pocus hippie alchemy. They should be. We're coming to your town to help you party down. Lock the medicine cabinets. Hide your daughters. The Phish hath returned to Georgia.
I rocked out on couch tour while counting the hours until my first real show of the tour (Chicago). Arigato to Yasu for the crisp feed. By the start of the second set, I was bumming that I did not jump on tour sooner.
Trey was in full-blown rock God mode and went Heartbreaker on everyone in the second set. Trey teased the fuck out of Zepelin cover throughout the rest in Wilson, Tweezer, Hood, and Zero. Too bad Rock and Roll jam was overshadowed by the Heartbreaker hijinks. All in all, another wild night with the Phish.
KDF was a perfect warm-up. They were ready to roll and even pulled off Mound with minimal miscues (someday they'll nail it). Late-set Gins pack a bigger punch, nevertheless, this one in the 3-hole had a tasty-bubbly jam. Rift and Horn back to back gave me flashbacks to college (in Atlanta of all places) when we listened to Rift album nonstop shortly after it came out because we had 3 bootlegs among ten of us budding Phisheads. Horn licks in the Possum intro. Page hammered the ivories on Possum jam. Thought a TTE was coming... but it was thankfully Pebbles and Marbles. I fancy myself an Ocelot aficionado. That mini-jam was a good A-, accented by Page/Gordo's tag team, wild Samoan jam. Slightly longer pause at end of Cavern. Crowd was stoked for Antelope. Eleven songs in the first set, which fell right in line with how they'd approached gis this year. The Phish Summer Tour 2013 Formula for set 1... greatest hits and deep cuts sprinkled throughout a 90-minute. 11-song opening set. The second sets have been around 2-3 songs lighter, but with significantly more jamming.
Tuesday barn burner with another one coming tomorrow.
