I managed to enjoy some crap table time before the encore and as our one shooter hit his 5th point in a row, we celebrated, and the streams of fans poured out of the arena to cheer on with us.
Saturday was the longest day of all time. Toubab Krewe started it off impressively, and Gomez played their hearts out to an early crowd. From Praxis to Cat Power, The Coup and Yard Dogs – the day was starting out with an electric array of bands. MMW layed the grooved down as Yonder Mountain played their last show of the tour.
Ranconteurs are the the rockingest band of all time. Keller Williams Incident brought some heat and clever covers — The Mars Volta shreaded, The Black Crowes and Petty played all the hits.
Mr. Starman himself, zzyzx, was there and he looks to be having a darn good time. His first couple posts on the fest are entertaining; his conversation with Mike and how Trey’s set was too noodly — hilarious…
Pauly of Tao of Pauly was there and was doing some bloggin’ on his Phish Coventry blog. “Perhaps it was due to the late time of the show, but a lot of people in the corwd were drunk. Very drunk which borderlined on annoying. One dude passed out and hit the floor. His friends had to carry him out and he puked on a guy standing near us.” Sounds like a blast at the Trey show, alright!
