Phish Fall Tour 2010 continued tonight at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, CO where the quartet just finished its second of three shows at the new venue outside of Boulder on the heels of Sunday’s tour opener.

A lengthy first set had an old school start with a Runaway Jim, Foam pairing that was all the rage in the mid ’90s. A song off bassist Mike Gordon’s new CD Moss called What Things Seem was the debut of the night and Tweezer and Antelope were the big jams in the first set. A quirky moment came at the end of the Antelope when Trey called out “Marco” and the crowd responded with “Polo!” This impromptu game of Marco Polo continued for a bit before the band wrapped up the tune.

Notes: What Things Seem made its Phish debut
Back in September we asked our readers what “one-timer” cover they would like to see Phish resurrect and the winner was TV on the Radio’s The Golden Age. Those readers should be happy tonight as the group dusted off Golden Age for the first time since its debut in Albany last November. Golden Age was jammed out a bit and went off into space until Trey played the Piper intro. Piper saw multiple jam spaces explored before the band smoothly segued into Camel Walk. Twist was another tune that featured patient, groove-based jamming and Fluffhead was a crowd favorite, as usual.
