PHISH @ DICK'S IN 2011
Like an episode of Sesame Street for big kids, last night's Phish show was brought to us by the letter "S." A few songs into its set, a theme began to emerge. To wit, every song the band played began with the letter "S." When everyone first picked up on the fact that Phish might be playing a themed set, there was some speculation that the band might be spelling out something over the course of its six sets, while others murmurred that it might have something to do with a surprise cameo by Carlos Santana - in town this weekend for a pair of performances at Red Rocks.
Sunday night's show at Dick's seemed like a continuation of the relaxed, anything-goes mood from Saturday night more than a balls-out party to end the summer. In a way, this was fitting for a band that has been working for the past three years since re-forming to find that comfortable consistency on stage. Still, it just didn't feel like the last night of the tour.
