      there's no lot marshalls after the shows. They heard you in, go home, and let you fend for yourself later

      I saw these guys for free at PNC bank Art center in holmdel NJ. Thank god it was free because i left early. If i wasn't such a critic, i probably would have liked the performance but IMO, it was repetitive and boring. The guitarist, whats his name, Trey ano-something?... Well, he seems to really enjoy going up chromatically by half steps to initiate the band going back into the "song." It was cool for the first couple songs but i felt like he just does this over and over song after song, crescendoing and crescendoing. Alot of shredding, not enough breaking down, not enough attention to other players besides trey anestasios. Hes talented, but like is said, repetitive. The songs were good and the loyal fans seemed to be impressed but when it came down to jamming, I couldnt feeel a difference between the songs. I guess Phish is just not for me. Im sorry for hating and im probably going to get flamed because ya'll are so loyal but I figured id add my $0.02.

      It's alright. They are playing better this year than '09-'10, but are not nearly as good as they used to be.

      Great cause I'm sure they'll play an amazing show for this, and for being so close to home after so long. But too far for me on any day of the week, much less a Wednesday.

      visually it was set up great and CK5 pulled out some new light programming it seemed. Musically the songs were played ok but the sets lists were nothing special. I was really expecting they'd pull out something rare or unusual... instead they pulled out the Gov of VT


      during set break the webcast ran photos of the flooding aftermath from Burlington Free Press. Many powerful images of the devastation.

      Essex was hands down the best they have sounded and looked in 10 years, except for a few songs from the modern era it was basically like a late 90's show. Def had the 30 somethings in mind with that setlist. Way to go!!!

      10 years? I certainly do not agree with that assessment but to each his own

      a little late but Essex was awesome, was able to hear the soundcheck from my friends backyard 1/2 mile away, not sure if anyone has hear the recording of the soundcheck but it is some of the best playing they have done since they came back. See you guys in NYC!

      Didn't wake up in time to head to the ticketmaster location.. tried online/phone, and of course, failed miserably for the 30th and 31st

      yes and tix are like 250 for the worst seats in msg for the 31st...I may just go for it and buy it though, I dont want to go all the way up to NYC and only see phish once, especially if that once isnt the nye show. I lucked out and got 30th in the lotto but still need to get 31st...crappy and expensive...
