Phish @ Alpine Valley: Liveblog and Setlist Updates (Night Two)

alpine crowd

The final night on the first leg of Phish Tour 2009 has just started at Alpine Valley in East Troy, WI. The band opens with “Brother,” and the next text I got said “Strange opener.” I’ll say.

I still haven’t listened to last night yet but I was told the “Maze” was a monster.

Phish @ Alpine Valley, 6/21/09

Setlist:

Set I: Brother, Wolfman’s Brother, Funky Bitch, The Divided Sky, Joy, Back on the Train, Taste, Poor Heart, The Horse > Silent in the Morning, The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday > Avenue Malkenu > The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday, Time Turns Elastic

Set II: Crosseyed & Painless -> Down with Disease, Bug, Piper, Wading in a Velvet Sea, Boogie On Reggae Woman, Slave to the Traffic Light

Encore: Grind, Frankenstein

That’s all she wrote folks. We’ll be back on the case in a little over a month for Red Rocks!

    First night looks like it rained supreme. Brother, Fbitch, MWSIY > avena>MWSIY pretty tight.. Frankenstein closer, top shelf. Horse, Silent, Divided Sky always always welcomed, Slave, BORW also appreciated…..

    HOWEVER after 15 yrs and dozens and dozens of shows a Ghost > Lizards, YEM > NICU> Caspian, is one of the sickest stretches I’ve witnessed.

    yeah, seriously. Would love to see Mike drop some bass bombs with flames coming out! Of course, I’d rather they just turn him up in the damn mix!!!!

    btw, no flames in this photo, but you can at least check out Trey’s 5-neck guitar and Page on keytar. Awesome.

    Here is a link to pictures taken by my man Tom. We were in 201 X dead center about 15 rows back, and the show was spectactular. I’m not really sure why people are hating, but there are a couple of great pics of the flame guitar. Check it out.
