Quickie Couch Tour Recap KC: Phish's DWD-Sand Castle
Return to the castle. Cue the Zelda theme... Lights down at 8:05pm with a Gumbo opener. Now that's what I call a fucking opener. First Gumbo this tour, short and sweet but one of the highlights of the set... Nothing could compare to the previous KDF, but this shortie did not deviate from the path... BBQ funk with Back on the Train... That Bouncin' was the obligatory piss song.. Loved the one "screamer" during Divided Sky. Sweet Jesus that girl had pipes... New song with the debut of Last Step, which got called up from the minors and Gordo's farm team... Blaze On is in every other show rotation (swapping off with No Man's Land) and stepped into the role of "peppy new song white people who smoke pot dance to badly." This was the first time Trey introduced a "Play it, Leo!"... Waiting All Night is growing on me (can you sense the moistness of the dripping sarcasm there?). @LawnMemo pointed out the poignant guitar solo is Trey crying his eyes out over a lost love. Dude, Memo give me a call and I'll set up a meeting because we can make millions writing LIFETIME MOVIE OF THE WEEK scripts about a newly-divorced rock-star dad with two kids who seeks true love on the tumultuous touring road filled with temptations at every turn... I've been whining for a Melt since Bend. Knew it wasn't going to happen in KC, but thought it might be an Antelope-high-gear night. Nope. Instead a nonchalant 46 Days closed out the 70-minutes set... Gotta Jibboo kicked off the peppy set two and started to take flight but they pulled it back in... The Bud-Lime-lubricated shitstains were already juiced up and wooing like frat-daddy-banshees before Trey could finish the opening lick to Twist. Quickie Twist... Wedge got little extra hot sauce, but everything up until that point was foreplay... Deep-spacing Dirk Diggler porn-thrasing DWD with oodles of celestial 70's classic rock teases including Under Pressure and Jumping Jack Flash... DWD > Sand. Yup it happened...
The 70's porn theme continued with a sultry SDP (aka Sand Dance Party). The Sand-jam-out-with-your-clam-out even achieved a modicum of titillating Dirk Diggler deep-deep-spacing ... Joy'd was the cold shower come down after DWD > Sand 70s porn fiesta... Bombtastic YEM set closer. Aw, dope-ass mofos in KC got the Mothership muthafucking galactic rainbow connection... If you toss out the Joy, it was a late 90s set, with some porn-tastic Dirk Diggling... The felicitous Bug encore prepared everyone for a soft landing back on terrestrial ground... The tour is eleven shows deep and Phish turns back around and heads toward O-H-I-O for a Blossom Possum showdown...
