Phish played another amazing show last night in Miami. The third night of the four-night run will go down in the record books as Phish played their 242nd unique song this year, which breaks the previous record of 240 in 1998. The band is clearly feeling confident as they end a super strong 2009 tonight. I’m jealous for my friends that are there attending, but thanks to the streamers I’ve gotten to catch a lot of this action live, including the absolutely nasty “Back on the Train” that went down last night. Kudos, Phish. You’re officially back. Like, 1000% back.

Notes: Gone was a debut, and Dixie Cannonball was a Phish debut. Back on the Train featured an extended jam including hints of Limb by Limb. During Love You, Fishman mentioned Trey’s announcement on December 28, 2009 that it was Fishman’s last vacuum solo “of the aughts,” so he announced that he needed “someone dressed like me” to do it, brought audience member Rich onstage to do the solo, then gave him the vac! Antelope included numerous Boogie On teases. Frankenstein featured Page on keytar. Corrina was played for the first time since February 24, 2003 (100 shows) and Tela was played for the first time since November 24, 1998 (235 shows). This gig featured ten songs not previously performed in 2009 inclusive of two debuts; 2009 features more unique songs (242) than any other year in Phish’s history, beating out 1998 by 2… so far!
