Phish @ Alpine Valley 6/21/09 (pics & setlist)

Phish @ ALPINE VALLEY 6/20/09
Day 2 b!tches. A few differences for today's show; 1) plenty more lot time before the show, and 2) Our favorite bizarro Trey, DANK was in the house, and 3) we had glo sticks. Coming back full circle to have 3/4's of our crew from the 8/9/97 show meant that this was going to be a big day. No disappointments there. Great times...until the late night drive home, but that doesn't overshadow what was another great F-ing night at Alpine.

On a quick sidenote pretty cool that all the guys brought out their kids prior to the show in honor of it being Father's Day. They're all grows up...kinda. Fun versions of 'I Didn't Know' and 'Grind' in there and some jams in the last three before the encore; 'Velvet Sea', 'Boogie On', 'Slave'? Man...boy...

I think that's actually me. Probably had too much fun with the glo-sticks.
Wish I knew what tune had us all hunched over like this. Divided Sky maybe?
I wonder if it's his first Phish show! Check the baby's headphones out.

What a night. What a weekend. Anybody want to go to Red Rocks?
