Previews: Phish at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park [Reverb]

1) They’re on the top of their game. Okay, so maybe not the “Rocky Top” (the mid-’90s are often pointed to as such), but the quartet is in a damn fine place. They got off to a shaky reboot in March of ‘09 but, since then, many shows have truly sparkled. My personal favorite was a bust-out-filled fest in August of ‘09 in Hartford, but the group’s last time in Colorado was stellar, too. The first night last October at the 1stBank Center killed, a thrashing “Chalkdust Torture” opening the festivities with a bass-heavy “Stash,” meaty “Ghost” and joyful “Slave to the Traffic Light” peppering the night. Set lists and downloads from this summer’s tour indicate that Phish is continuing to be true to form.
