*START CHECKING BACK AS EARLY AS 8:45 PM EST FOR LIVE BLOGGING OF TONIGHT'S SHOW*
Well, what can we say about those Gorge shows except that A) I wish I was there and B) it looks like Phish has been saving themselves for the back leg of their summer tour. And with Darien Lake on the horizon, I can only imagine they'll hit stride more and more with each passing show (that live phish 3 is one of my favorites...they always seem to kill Darien. I'd hope for a Crosseyed and Painless, but I don't want to jinx it).
That's not to take away from what they did in June...the guys have been on fire this summer, if only partly because it looks like they are officially "back," and won't show signs of slowing down until at least after Halloween, though rumors of a New Years show have already begun circulating. It would be nice to see Phish return to Madison Square Garden for a few nights in December, but at the same time, that would make the show all the more impossible to attend for us here at Great Scott.And speaking of Halloween, if anyone out there in internet land plans on attending, shoot us an email. We always love connecting with phans, especially those that are regular or frequent visitors of our site! Who knows, maybe if we're feeling generous we may even have some freebies to hand out at the show!
Also, check back later this week for the last in our summer series of rare Phish shows, b-sides, outtakes, and side projects. Our last installment will be from Phish's Undermind recording sessions, and features material we had never heard until we stumbled onto it.
And now, without further ado, here's tonight's set:
Kill Devil Falls
Sample In A Jar
Paul and Silas

Time Turns Elastic
