The Vermonters kicked off their Halloween show with the fitting "Frankenstein" featuring
keyboardist Page McConnell on keytar. Following the spooky "Big Black Furry Creatures From
Mars," the quartet kept things rolling with an outstanding "Ghost" -> "Spooky" segment.
When Phish came out for the second set they were joined by percussionist Giovanni Hidalgo,
who would guest on the entire Waiting for Columbus set. The horn section of Aaron
Johnson, Stuart Bogie, Ian Hendrickson, Michael Leonhart and Eric Biondo augmented the
group at various points of the Little Feat tribute. Phish nailed most of the Waiting
for Columbus selections with "Time Loves A Hero" > "Day Or Night," "Spanish Moon"
"Fat Man In The Bathtub" sticking out as particular highlights. The band focused on
originals in a third set that featured a rare extended "Wilson."
