420-Word Quickie Recap: NIGHT 12 BOSTON CREAM
Saturday Donut: Boston Cream... The toughest ticket in the run. Had not seen a harder ticket since Hampton 2009 and AC Halloween 2010... Super-grateful the entire run with 100-level tickets for 12 shows. Night 12 was only night with a 200-level ticket, yet lucked-out with first row on the back corner for a perfect vantage point of CK5's lights. Senor's brother Javier scored me the solo ticket a couple days before the BD run began. No one sat in seats next to me for the first/second sets. Deadhead older sis Irongirl01 grooved next to me all night... Super-chill section. I was easiest the biggest and schwilliest wook in 201... Bob Nesta Marley cover opener with Soul Shakedown Party... Country-Phish with Uncle Pen... Anytime you get Sloth and Fuck Your Face in same set, it's gonna be a great fucking show... Roof of the Garden almost blew its fucking top with the opening and iconic riff to Sunshine of Your Love. Everyone knew Cream was coming and the moment still delivered a goosebumps-kind of memory burn. Crowd singing along to More Than a Feeling became an instant highlight of the Baker's Dozen... The Boston Cream Medley will be a continuous source of nitpicking among phans and archivists. I jumped on Phish tour to avoid rules/structure! Fish/Trey summed everything up, "This whole thing was just so we could do that." Sometimes bad inside jokes blow up into amazing happenings. Trey joked about Kansas/Metallica flavors. I'm still waiting for Molly Percosett night and Mask Off cover... That sneaky-fuck Trey snuck Frost into a show and no one gave a fuck because of the Boston Cream schtick... Fire shoulda ended the set. How a tepid Alaska got wedged in after the Jimi cover shall be the source of nitpickery for centuries to come... Plasma is a TAB song I could get behind... Ghost opener? Shit was gonna go sideways quick with this faded, deviant scepter. NYE Petrichor won over lot of phans. Yet, obvious weak link in a smoking set... Light > Lizards beamed the set into another dimension... Saw a security guard getting down to Lizards. It was like a moment of clarity for the young woman... Lizard aliens sent me messages thru lights... Quinn sole Dylan nod of the run... Band capped off shows they really really really loved with Rocky Top... Joy lulz-encore and not Boston/Cream theme to cap off the historic night... 12 down, 1 to go.
