SunFest, West Palm Beach, FL

A quick little one-set show today. Would have enjoyed this fest, for sure. I mean, Phish AND the Village People on the same stage? Hellzyeah!!
Classic RunJim Foam opener. Never gets old, especially when their playing with that 1994 fire! Foams are just killing me as I listen to these shows. That said, I’m already weary of Sample… it’s gonna be a long year on that tune.
Solid DwD here. Big high-energy jam. Also, another really cool Page-led breakdown in Ice. Man, Ice was just this little plaything during this Spring Tour. I can’t get enough of it! Plus this Ice is the start of the great middle segment of the set. The ‘lope and Coil are both perfect… and Julius is solid, if not out of this world. Rockin’ GTBT is perfect for a fest crowd who may not know Phish all too well. Leads me to wonder why they didn’t play any well known covers at jazzfest. Golgi Encore and that’s all she wrote.
Short but sweet. Thanks for reading.
