Phish @ Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion, Raleigh, NC 7/1/10 Post Show Wrap-up

Suzy Greenberg to end the Set

I rolled into Raleigh about 12:30 this afternoon and got checked into my hotel. Took a break before meeting up with Chris & Dennis. I have never been into a venue as early as I was today. We were at the gates, waiting for them to open. It gave me a further appreciation of tapers dedication. I also scored a merit badge, for being early. I met several interesting people, including Chris, the Kool-Aid Man. I met Billy & Robin before the show, spearheading the recycling effort. A great start for the evening, and the show hasn’t even started.

LLAMA in huge white letters appeared near the front, just as the band took the stage. A few finger pointings, a little discussion, and the band was opening with a great request. The first set was full of good energy, and the bass had a really nice sound. To me the mix sounds greatly improved. Both the band & crowd end the set on a high note.

It’s finally dark. The second set had several surprises. Halley’s Comet, Have Mercy and Light Up Or Leave Me Alone. I particularly enjoyed Page closing out Squirming Coil on the piano, and the band really picked up to close the set strong with Suzy Greenberg. All I can say about the encore is bass. Sharp, punchy, bass.

After a short trip back to the hotel, I snagged a couple photos of Chris & Dennis transferring tonight’s show, before getting started myself.  I got a brief listen of Moma Dance. It’s been less than an hour from the last note being played, and I am listening to it again. Start checking etree, for their nice FOB recording.

Here’s a few photos, until tomorrow.

Lots of mics, lots of download options...

    Emily, I didn’t know you were my mom? The IP address & the posting email gave you away. Good try though. Isn’t it great to have friends that like you enough, to heckle your guest blogging posts? Looks like I am going to have to dig out some photos from your first show…

    Part of this is because Phish takes a broader understanding of music than most groups. They play songs across a broad range of genres at every single concert. That way, they can show (and experience) more fully the relationship of one style to another and how they have effectively created each other over the years.

    I’ve maintained all along that Phish is not for everyone, and it’s o.k. to not like something that someone else loves.
