Phish played their first of four nights at Madison Square Garden last night as part of their New Year’s Eve run, and I was there rocking some of set one on Couch Tour while my crew of buddies was raging hard at the arena.
Set I: Free, Glide > Possum, Cities, The Ballad of Curtis Loew, Stash, Contact > Sample in a Jar, Kill Devil Falls > Bathtub Gin
Set II: Birds of a Feather, Carini -> Tweezer > My Friend, My Friend -> Rock and Roll -> NICU, Bouncing Around the Room, Harry Hood > Bug
Encore: Tube > Rocky Top > Tweezer Reprise
 Streets of Cairo tease.
 No “Myfe” ending.
 Birds of a Feather jam.
We’ll have more coverage, videos, and photos in the next few days and as always stay up on the feed at @YEMblog for the latest media hitting the web after these shows. I’m always psyched at how fast the media gets uploaded after every show.
