Over the weekend: Phish at Red Rocks, 8/01/09

As if to say, "We can top that," Phish kept the engine going full steam after a quick set break. Velvet Underground's "Rock N Roll" got things going, and after a couple well played staples like "Down with Disease" and "Free" kept the weight on, "Esther" made an appearance for the first time since 2000 and only the fourth time ever - an astonishing pleasure that electrified the crowd. Thankfully, Phish followed it up with the slow ballad "Dirt," giving the crowd a chance to catch their breath. "Harry Hood" closed out the set, and what a closer it was! The reggae infused rock song is quintessential Phish and a perfect way to end a show.

Saturday nights set will be revered for years to come in the lore of Phish.
