Notes from the sideline:
Trey got his dance on during “Gumbo”. During “I Didn’t Know” Trey joked that he had waited 19 years to see “if he would do it again” referring to Fishman getting naked during the 1994 show. During setbreak, the band confirmed on the webcast that they would be broadcasting the Halloween run via LivePhish.com. “Twist” featured a power drill jam by Mike.
