Phish Destroys Jones Beach

The Phish shows at Jones Beach Theater on 7/3 and 7/4 were my 46th and 47th Phish shows. I just learned my exact show count this afternoon after downloading The Helping Friendly App. I had been meaning to do this forever. The app is definitely worth the $1.99 purchase price. It is amazing that I still enjoy their shows as much as, if not more than, I ever have. It is a bit of a hassle to get out to Jones Beach from the city; however, we had perfect weather on both 7/3 and 7/4 so the trip out there was more than worth it. It also didn’t hurt that Phish threw down some spectacular set lists both nights. These shows are the only Phish shows I’m going to see this summer so there were a number of songs I was hoping to hear, particularly a Mike’s Song > I am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove. I got really lucky and Phish played almost all of the big songs I wanted to hear on the first night! There is something special about seeing Phish at an outdoor venue with great weather that really makes it feel like summer. Check out the set list from the first night:
