Phish, 8/5/11


The Gorge Amphitheatre
George, WA
August 5, 2011

Kicking off the second leg of summer tour, Phish opened things up in large fashion with a two night stand at what is arguably the most scenic permanent live music venue in the country, The Gorge. Highlighted by a near 20 minute jam out of the Velvet Underground’s “Rock and Roll” — that featured Page McConnell on theremin and was reminiscent of the ambient recent sounds of the “secret” storage locker set at Super Ball IX and  — the night on its whole was a solid way to put the best foot forward the Vermont quartet’s current cross-country trek.
