^^ Is that for real? I was under the impression Phish @ Hampton tickets were traditionally super pricey (compared to an average Phish show). People just give them away?

I think the big question is does one stand near the always lovely Neko, or does one stand closer to the arguably younger and cuter black girl (and I identify her by skin color only because there is a third woman.)

The trick is to locate ChalCal and position yourself near him.  He knows where it's at!

I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting him, but if I remember correctly what he has said about himself, I might have trouble seeing over him even when he's seated.

Simi Stone
Kathryn Calder

are their names.

When at the 930 club, I tend to drift around the stage right area...with Everyshow ToddTM. I am past trying to get up close to stage at its center. If you are looking for me, I am the 6'1" skinny/fat dude dressed in all grey.

I refer to this area as the 'food food' area

Adjacent to the FF area for sure, but around the corner, outside it's glare.

An infamous time in Phish lore is when the bottom dropped out of the Hampton ticket market in 2013.

This was caused by a tour that had multiple stops close to Hampton as well as the expectation that Hampton tickets would be hard to aquire, therefore people bought many extras in hoping they could trade these tickets for even harder tickets like Halloween. This created the Hampton ticket tree as well as the saying, "tickets on the ground" which is unfortunately what's going to happen happen to our friend with the extra Dead and Co. Tickets.

This is a fascinating tale of market forces at work.

Show was ok, but the double live disc from Dead Man's Pop that I listened to on the drive is  100 times better.

Pretty crowd crushed. Sightline was ok, but my body just aches when I have to stand in one place. My club show life may be over. Didn't see any boardies that I recognized...

show was a 7/10

def good that Neko is in this tour as I can't really stand Carl's vocals and he struggled a bit.   

did they go for a 2nd encore?  I don't think setlist.fm is accurate.

Was a good show for sure. Without Dan, I think the best they can do is around an 8, so 7 makes sense for this.

Setlist online is definitely not accurate. No second encore, and out of order. Carl's vocals were fine, but should have been brought up in the mix, as he is a quiet singer.

The opener was pretty great I thought.

Stood in my usual stage right spot, got a good Lean on the wall. Plenty of room around that area. Was able to fairly easily transit to the restrooms and back. I would amaze you with my close-up photos, but no photos were allowed to be taken.

I am worried about Space not being able to have fun at shows anymore


Getting old sucks....

Full disclosure: I have been given the senior discount (unprompted) at the Unique Thrift Store recently

I also get carded..sometimes...I like to think the people at Unique (many foreigners who donít seem to speak English) like to give discount to anyone to avoid issues with the kind of people who go to thrift stores

And I saved a buck on the Diary of a wimpy kid blue ray/DVD combo so who am I to complain
