Phish has settled in for night two at Northerly Island after an impressive opening performance last night. The band stretched out a cover of TV on the Radio’s “Golden Age” for 17 minutes and later in the set delivered a “Wombat” that surprised just about everyone in attendance and on Couch Tour. The song’s lyrics (cuddly, but muscular) have firmly divided Phish’s fanbase but almost everyone agrees that the Type II jam that came out of it last night was one of the best pieces of music Phish has crafted all summer. What does the band have in store for us tonight? Follow along for setlist updates!
