It was obvious from the opening one-two hit of “PYITE” into a rigid, “Runaway Jim”, that this show would be anything but predictable. Even when Phish delivers a noteworthy performance, it usually follows a similar formula in this era. They’ll play a safe first set to warm up the audience, with a straightforward approach to beloved staples. A few songs may stray from their usual musical passage. Then, they let the improvisation explode in the second set. This formula was not only aborted tonight, it never reared its head amongst the pandemonium that was this first set of true legend.
