Phish’s Windy City’
Phishs summer tour moved east last night to Bridgeview, ILs Toyota Park Stadium. The group continued to bust out rarities as well, running through the first version of Earl Scruggs and Lester Flatts bluegrass standard Paul and Silas since November 29, 1998 and the first version of Carini since the groups reunion. Despite retiring the song from 1988 until 2000, the band also played its third The Curtain (With) this tour. Other highlights included Train Song, Gotta Jibboo and a run from 2001 into Chalk Dust Torture.
In addition, the Vermont Quartet debuted the new song Windy City. The Page McConnell-sung rock song rock song may appear on the bands bonus album Party Time. McConnell also sings lead vocals on I Been Around, the only Joy song the band has yet to play live. The loose, in-studio shuffle feels like a mix between McConnells Army of One and a lounge standard.
