Day Three of Super Ball IX

Phish laid it down last night with a tight and stellar set to close out Super Ball IX.  

AC/DC's "Big Balls" and a flawless cover of Zep's "New Quarter" to name a few of the many highlights....definitely planning to download the show this morning and my only regrets are that I was not able to attend.  So thankful for the fine folks at Bunny Radio who broadcast SBIX over LivePhish and SiriusXM all weekend long. THANK YOU!!!!!! 

Have a safe and blessed July 4th!!!!

Encore: First Tube

[1] Theme from Leave it to Beaver tease from Mike.
[2] Dave's Energy Guide tease.
[3] Phish debut
[4] Unfinished.
[5] Japanese lyrics.

  This show was the third of the three-show Super Ball IX festival. The Curtain was played for the first time since September 9, 2000 (202 shows). The narration preceding Mockingbird, (the first since September 30, 2000 (188 shows)), referenced the previous night's fourth set Storage Jam and explained that all of SBIX was merely a mental projection of a reality that the band created in 1988 on their way to Colorado. Mike teased the theme from Leave it to Beaver during BBFCFM. Reba contained Dave's Energy Guide teases. The setbreak featured All-American themed music. This show featured the Phish debut of Big Balls. Disease was unfinished. Meatstick included Japanese lyrics. Before the encore, Trey thanked each of the crew, management and artists who helped make Super Ball IX happen. First Tube was followed by fireworks.
