There is absolutely no doubt that Phish is deeply enjoying their Baker’s Dozen run at Madison Square Garden. With eight nights under their belt and a confidence on stage rarely seen during the 3.0 days, the band is firing on all cylinders and taking songs to a level that fans aspire to see delivered.
Last Wednesday night, night five, was no exception at all. The band brought a powdered donut theme to the Garden and opened with the amazing Fleet Foxes song, White Winter Hymnal”. My jaw was immediately on the floor when I heard that. And then we get a “Cars Trucks Buses”, an always welcome “Roses are Free” and a song we wouldn’t often see, “The Very Long Fuse”. Talk about confidence on stage in this set.

We’ve been waiting for a “Tube” jam for a while and it finally landed right where it needed to. Check it out in all of its 14 minute glory below…
The band returns to the stage at Madison Square Garden tomorrow for Night Nine of The Baker’s Dozen run. Can’t. Wait.
