Phish is about to take the stage at Santa Barbara Bowl for their final show before they head to Las Vegas for their four-night Halloween 2021 run. We’re watching tonight from the couch, and then we’ll be off to Sin City in the morning.
The band has played the SB Bowl a few times and based on their last few shows this weekend, today was a harder ticket than the last time the band rolled through the area.
Here’s what went down:
Phish @ Santa Barbara Bowl, Santa Barbara CA 10.26.21
Set I: Pebbles And Marbles -> Makisupa Policeman^ 👮♂️ > Sample in a Jar -> The Silver Light*, Halley’s Comet > Mountains in the Mist, Mull > Set Your Soul Free
Set II: Blaze On > Beneath a Sea of Stars Pt. 1 > 46 Days -> Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley -> Weekapaug Groove^# > About to Run, If I Could, Sigma Oasis
Encore: F*** Your Face > Meatstick > The Lizards, A Life Beyond the Dream
Notes: * – Phish debut, from Lonely Trip ^ – featured vocal play between Trey and Mike where they repeated the call and response of “Hello. Hi. How are you? Fine. We hope you have a good time. Thanks.” which featured some crowd interplay as well. Super fun moments. # – Trey seemed to quote “Piper” and callback to “Sneakin’ Sally…” during this jam
