Open Letter to Green Laser Pointers

Dear Mr. Laser Pointer, 

   What pleasure do you gain by flashing your pointer? You're not cool. You’re distracting, annoying, and inconsiderate. You're in the extremely small minority, and I can't stand it when you flash that fucking thing. Turn it off, close your eyes and maybe just enjoy the music without ruining the show for others.

RollingStone: Phish Deliver Well-Oiled Jams in Hartford

I love when Richard Gehr writes reviews
Phish opened the second set, however, with Party Time's title track (complete lyrics: "Party time!"), which the band followed up with two long, funky jams. During "Down With Disease" and "Sand," Anastasio stepped back as though to demonstrate just how elegantly egalitarian this band could be when all four members, including keyboardist Page McConnell and drummer Jon Fishman, sync up and get down. The interlude also inspired lighting director Chris Kuroda's most colorfully geometric 3-D effects (which were sadly missing from the band's recent 3-D movie).

The set's energy level waned shortly after "Guyute," though. Some moron hit Gordon in the head with a glowstick during "Farmhouse," and the segued trio of tunes that followed — "Mike's Song," the ambient instrumental "I Am Hydrogen," and "Weekapaug Groove" throwdown — felt relatively perfunctory. The group wrapped up the first show of its two-night stand with the Rolling Stones' "Shine a Light," the final song on Exiles on Main Street, which Phish covered in its entirety last Halloween. It's one of rock's great redemption songs, and Phish have made it their own.
