420-Word Recap: NIGHT 5 POWDERED
Wednesday donut: Powdered... Page-side, fourth row off the floor... Took my French bud Benjo for third show in a row... Benjo digs the Fleet Foxes and he recognized opening song by the second lyric! Another a capella cover for the opener. White Winter Hymnal kicked off the Powder theme. I finally found a way to turn stalwart hipster friends onto Phish... Gordo rocked a nuclear-waste-green scarf and lipstick. Between Fleet Foxes and Gordo's scarf, it was gonna be a weird night from the get go... Page's MVP-performance highlighted Tuesday Jam night. His abundant confidence spilled over into Wednesday with a Cars Trucks Buses... My Soul old swampy blues cover provided vivid flashbacks from 1997... Third cover in four song with a quickie Roses Are Free. Weener got few more bucks to replenish his blow fund... GUMBO is one of my top 3 favorite songs (with Slave & Tube). Faaaaaded Gumbo. Garcon Gumbo railing Valium again... Benjo noted Farmhouse sounded like Marley. My first Farmhouse was MSG 98 and I thought it was an obscure Marley cover... Another jammed out Tube! Second-longest ever clocking in at 14+ min. I didn't bother to time it, because knew it would hit the OVER... Carini > Mr. Completely = 30 min 1-2 punch that launched the second set, which was chocked full of 7 Below teases... Carini didn't get too dark. Remained somewhat light and happy-ish. Carini finally saw a shrink, who prescribed him Wellbutrin... Mr. Completely Deemsters? Crystal-wooks behind us blasted off during Mr. C... 1999 appeared out of nowhere. Thought Trey would ripcord Mr. C jam to play Light, but then Page kicked in the synths and shit blew up. Floor extra bouncey. I saw 12/31/98 NYE show and everyone knew 1999 was coming sometime that evening. But last night's 1999? Never saw it coming... Nod to Prince was also a cheeky reference to the nose-candy flake-addled days backstage with Betty Ford... A 1999>2001 woulda blown the roof off the Garden. Alas, no 2001 but we got another Zeppelin cover. No Quarter always kicks my ass. Page slays covers, while Trey/Fish can pay homage to their personal heroes... Phish encored with Powderfinger to cap off the cover-heavy evening. Everyone in my section went nuts, particularly the older Deadheads rocking "Let Trey Sing" shirts... Oh and the DMT Crystal-wooks blasted off one last time. I got digital with the contact high... 5 down, 8 more to go.
