Never got into phish much, thought a lot of their songs were kinda obnoxious, etc. However I finally got a chance to see them live in Charleston two nights over the weekend and I was supremely impressed. I was amazed by how high-energy it was. I was dancing hard the entire time, way more than I probably would have at a dead show or any other show around really. Reminded me a bit of the energy at the Widespread shows I've been to, except you don't get fatigued by the endless shredding in the first 10 minutes. One thing I kept noticing was these potential spaces in their sound and thinking "man, they should have a rhythm guitarist!" lol. Good stuff, though, I would definitely see them again. It's still no dead show though! heh.
