Quickie 420-Word Recap: NIGHT 2 STRAWBERRY
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.
