Over the weekend: Phish at Red Rocks, 07/31/09

"Tweezer," an another fav that's been one of the most played songs of the first leg of the tour, was also a welcome addition. Phish bassist Mike Gordon is as consistent as taxes, and the licks he doled out during "Tweezer" were goose bump worthy. Covers are making a large impact on this tour and "A Day in the Life" is no exception. Anytime McConnell gets a chance to showcase his voice the results are rewarding.

Phish is not infallable and just like any other band, off nights or sets are inevitable. But that's as you expect from an outfit whose strength lies in its improvisation and spontaneity. After all, going out every night and playing the same songs with a script is not the group's forte. Set like the second one, however, is what makes Phish's fanbase is so rabid, dedicated and enthusiastic. Sets like this are the reason to see Phish.
