Hampton 10-20-13

Plain and simple, there’s just no band on earth who gets it done like Phish. I see a lot of live music, and the energy, crowd, and flat out jams/guitar ripping at a Phish show is way beyond any other live act. So I headed four hours south to the Hampton Coliseum, AKA The Mothership, to check out the last show of three that Phish played that weekend.  All I can say is WOW. This was possibly the best Phish show I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen dozens.

The set list:

Set 1: Julius, Funky Bitch, Back on the Train, Roses Are Free > Sample in a Jar, Ginseng Sullivan, 46 Days, Divided Sky, Bold As Love

Set 2: Paul and Silas > Tweezer> Golden Age> Piper -> Takin’ Care of Business> Also Sprach Zarathustra > Sand > Slave to the Traffic Light

Encore: A Day in the Life > Tweezer Reprise

For all you Phish Phans, this is a great one. If you’re a Hendrix fan, the Bold As Love second set closer was unreal. If you’re a Beatles fan, A Day in the Life encore was so fitting and done very well. Hell, if you’re a Bachman Turner Overdrive fan, they busted out a Taking Care of Business in the middle of the second set. The first time for that one.

So what’s next? Halloween for me in 10 days! I’m ready for that one where the boys will play an entire album from another band. The White Album, Exile on Main Street, Waiting for Columbus, what will be next? Whatever it is, these guys are Takin’ Care of Business, that’s for sure!
