Let the Phish Apocalypse commence!... Welcome to 21st Century Phish with periscoped soundchecks... Pigtail tour opener (odds shot up pre-show after appearing at the soundcheck)... Daniel with an OG bustout (third time in 3.0 and only fifth since 1997)... The Dogs got some Vegas Halloween love... Fishman on full octo-man display with Undermind... Dear Prudence deep-deep bustout and FTP since Halloween 1994. And yes, Leo slays covers... Stash first taste of deviancy but never got too nasty... Gordo dusted off Round Room! Waaaaay better than his affinity for 555... Nugget of country-Phish with Gordo on Uncle Pen... Leo crooning the "Duluth" lyric on Moon... An inspired Walls as it's become a 3.0 go-to set closer... Set 2 kicked off with nifty DWD-ish fakeout to disguise the blast off into a Minny Mike's Song... Hydrogen lunch meattasted slightly different (couldn't put my finger on it)... Thought they'd save Weekapaug Groove til the end of the set, or at least mid-set. Instead, we got an OG Mike's Groove with a straight up Mike's > H2 > Weekapaug... Bouncin' = Pauly Takes a Piss Song (actually it was rip a bong hit of S.F. Valley Kush and look at WSOP chipcounts kind of song)... Choppy start to Ghost, but got cookin' with some Gordo deep-dickin'... The Line is what it is... Helluva bustout with Velvet Underground's I Found A Reason. Another Halloween curveball and third on night... Expected one of last summer's noobs and we got a funkified No Man's Land... Rare tune with Billy Breathes (only 5th tine played in 3.0)... Smoking-ass GIN set 2 closer... Trey admitted the band hadn't played Minnesota since 1999 and how his guitar was built in 1996 by Paul Languedoc and he played it from 96-99, but used it the last time he was there. He decided to bust out an "old friend"... Encored with a faded, country-version of Water in the Sky plus a standard high-energy Zero... First show of summer tour down. The rust shook off. Two shows on deck at Wrigley in Chicago.
