Hidden Track: Nothing Wrong With a Good Phish Show

History will not look kindly on the show Phish played at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia last night. The band threw down one of the best, if not the best, show since they reunited on Tuesday night featuring a dream setlist filled with blockbusters. We all knew what would happen the next night – a standard Phish show. And that’s indeed what happened, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a standard Phish show. Phish "Camel Walk" in Philadelphia

Phish returned to Trey Anastasio’s former stomping grounds last night for a performance at Philadelphia’s Wachovia Center. The guitarist, who grew up attending hockey games across the parking lot at the recently decommissioned Spectrum, took the stage wearing a Flyers jersey and offered fans one of Phish’s more classic-sounding sets since reuniting this past March.
