This was the first show of the IT festival. Ya Mar, DWD, and Seven Below were unfinished. Birds was followed by a “Meatstick” chant from the crowd, prompting Trey to note that the band would “like to honor” the request. After a long pause, Trey commented, “We’re taking our sweet time up here because…we have no place to go for two days.” DWD contained a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey and multiple Scents and Subtle Sounds teases. NICU ended with a bass solo from Mike at Trey’s request (“Play it, Cactus!”). Seven Below contained an On Your Way Down tease, Scents and Subtle Sounds included Seven Below teases. Before Dog Log, Trey remarked that the band couldn’t figure out what to play, and noted how, on this tour, the band made a conscious effort to not think about what songs they were going to play next. The fourth set “Tower Jam” found Phish playing on top the old air traffic control tower near the concert field. The set consisted of roughly an hour’s worth of unscripted jam material, with no notable teases or jams present. While Phish jammed, Chris Kuroda illuminated the tower’s interior and exterior with a light show and dancers suspended by wires around the side of the tower performed on the structure.
