Phish & Everyone Orchestra - Cincinnati


Recommended Posts

Holy Guacamole!

That was a weekend to remember! Wow.

Phish was... well, they were Phish: Completely AWESOME!!!! Tight, cohesive, inventive, energetic.

I tell you something though: The Everyone Orchestra was the real steal in Cincinnati. 30 musicians, frequently all on the stage at the same time, jamming. I stood three rows back from the action and had to devise a sling to keep my jaw from constantly being tripped over by my own dancing feet and those of the tripsters around me!

Good times had with all the Ontario crew: MarcO, Tooly, Jay, Laurie, Teresa (who saved us from the grips of the Cincinnati underworld), Tim, Ken, and a bunch of others who I am too wiped out to remember right now! Love and peace to all!

Thanks for the posts, Wi!!y ... I was wondering when we would start seeing some posts from the people that made the trek to Cincinatti ... glad to read that you had an awesome time, my friend.

That setlist from Friday night looks awesome to me!

And it's so nice when the aftershow is another spectacular event.

Peace, Mark

Oh Mark, you are so right. The first night absolutely blew me away! What an unbelievable set. The last time I saw them they played 2001 and then what do you know, they played it again! Fantastic energy. I loved the a capella bit too. So much to say, so little time. I can't wait to dance until the floor gives 'way at 33 Hess tonight.

Drunken Ring Toss

Late Night Giggle Sessions

"Hell ya, I want some pie."

Musical Television Set (playing some crappy movie)

The Pied Piper leading us through the streets of the city.

The In-Between Tavern

and on and on and on...


and we successfully changed the weather in a late night meditation session.... the snow was willed away and the sun came out to play... everyone put on their acoustic neil young and enjoy the drive? [Wink]

it was priceless, the waitress looked baffled when we all yelled hell yeah we want some pie

Will... glad to hear you made it home ok. Hopefully the rest of the crew did as well. Our trip back to the Hammer was a breeze, real light trafiic and dry conditions. We counted a total of 15 vehicles in the ditches though, I guess the roads must have been bad the night before?

I'm pretty damn tired here so I'll maybe flesh out a few things later but I wanted to share that I really enjoyed the Phish shows, ESPECIALLY last night, and the whole scene in Cincinnati was very cool indeed.

Some highlights from the first night included an exploratory stand-alone Down With Disease that was real nice and a strong, long Mike's > Free in set two. However, last night blew my trap off, after the Piper > Weekapaug meltdown, I was putty. So, the Walls Of The Cave, the Tube, the Bowie, the Bathtub Gin - oh, the Bathtub Gin - were all just gravy. Great playing. After the first night, I said to my friends all I really wanted for the second show was some more exploratory jamming, just to hear how that's sounding these days, post-hiatus, and man did they deliver. They really came to play, that's for sure. Trey gooned around a noticeable amount of time, it's weird to have him right up front, but really, the whole band seemd to be really enjoying themselves. And the crowd was pumped but took care of themselves pretty well, near as I can tell. No rowdiness, just genuine joy.

A very nice weekend. I must go to bed now.... [Razz]
