TGIF!! This is going to be a theme this year. When it’s my Friday I’ll be listening to a Monday night show. Can’t think of a better way to start off a Friday than Chalkdust Torture, actually. The weekend is so close I can taste the beer. Yet, I’ve got a full day of work to get through… Can’t this wait til I’m old?

This show is not one I’ve ever heard before. First set throws down another great Julius and a really intense Melt – and it’s not even 8am yet. I’m awake, damnit!! And then this AC/DC Bag just screams to an apex you just don’t get these days! Leave ‘em wanting more, indeed.

Second set starts strong with 2001, but the Sample and Sparkle feel like a first set. Let’s see where it goes from here! A great GIn. Another BBJ and a killer Ya Mar. I love the Calypso soloing from Trey on these ‘94 Ya Mars!  

And then they drop into Mike’s! A fun but short one that eases into TMWSIY in H2’s place. No complaints here. I wouldn’t have complained back then either… that is until the show ended with no ‘paug!! Kind of a bummer…

That said, I Wanna Be Like You never ever gets old. May be my favorite “Fish tune.”

Overall this show was fun. Had some highlights, but it felt like they may have been tired… I’m sure they were. This was the 6th show in 6 nights… and with a ton of driving in between. Still, fun show. Not bored with Phish yet!

Thanks for reading!
