START CHECKING BACK AS EARLY AS 7:45 PM EST FOR LIVE BLOGGING OF TONIGHT'S SHOW.
Last night's Darien show proved to be consistent with years past. Granted, I called "Drowned" a mile away, but that's a good thing. They honor their fans by doing their time tested and almost ceremonial jams in the places they feel most comfortable. And it's no secret that Phish loves Darien Lake. Hell, the Fluffhead said it all. Not to mention the all around looseness of the quartet, as displayed by banter and mood throughout the night^.
Expect a more traditional rock show tonight. Lots of new tunes, crowd pleasers; a mixed bag of the eclectic sound that has become Phish over the years. Hell, maybe even a 'Bouncin Around The Room. Maybe a Stash. Not that the show will disappoint (I mean honestly, do they ever?*), but more that they are winding down this tour relatively quickly, without a multi-night stop at the end as a final curtain call. But that's okay. With rumors of a fall tour gaining steam each day, I think we'll have plenty more to look forward to.
