Live From Indio: Halloween Review

Backwards Down The Number Line continues to be a jam vehicle for Phish 3.0, not to the lengths of the tour-closing SPAC version in August, but the Set 3 opening 1-2 combo of BDTNL & Fluffhead was a nice contrast of new school and old school compositions and what happens to them on the live stage. The Bathtub Gin & Run Like An Antelope filled out the day set nicely and the Suzie Greenberg encore complete with horns, Sharon Jones AND the jam reprise was a fantastic way to send off the fans last night.

Three hours until the acoustic set, we are all anxious to see what gets performed at this set and of course how these logistics go over for the coffee & doughnuts. Then it’s a nice long break in between sets, one as the sun sets and one more night-time throwdown.

  1. Looks awesome,and great review, dude. What’s funny is that late last night I was telling someone about Gov’t Mule’s knockout version of “Ventilator Blues” during ITS Halloween set in Philly, and the person was all, “No, man, you mean Phish. THEY played Exile.” Stones were a popular choice last night…

  2. it was really good to hear them all singing together on most songs.

    ventilator>just want to see his face> let it loose was a surprising highlight.

    torn and frayed is such a good song, i hope that this version will inspire more folks to put in on the ol’ juke!
