A to Z

Phish Merriweather Run: A – Z

Continuing a Hidden Track tradition started last summer, today we break down Phish’s recently completed two-show run at Merriweather Post Pavilion with a look at the performances from A – Z.

A is for Access Me – Mike Gordon’s Access Me was dusted off for the first time in 2011 on Saturday night and in this writer’s opinion it was the best version of the Undermind tune yet. It wasn’t a perfect rendition (as pointed out by DaveO) but far surpasses the flub-laden versions from Alpine ’04, Miami ’09 and Manchester ’10.

B is for Badass Boogie On – Following on a trend started at Bethel, Phish had fun with the outro of this Stevie Wonder cover on Sunday night making for quite the interesting take on the tune. We’ve reached the point where we’re excited to hear Cactus kick on his micro synth signaling the start of Boogie On after a few years of mostly standard versions.

C is for Crab Cakes – I stumbled upon a small crab cake stand at the venue and was so hungry that I didn’t care about the $15 price tag. I was shocked when I took my first bite and realized this was no ordinary crab cake. It was all killer crab and very little filler and quite honestly was the best venue food I’ve ever eaten.
