It's been several weeks since we've featured a video on our "Video of the Week" blog. It has been a summer chock full of amazing official video releases and we didn't want to jam up the blog with even more videos. Hopefully you have been enjoying all the ones that Phish has chosen for each show- there certainly are some true gems. Anyways, back to weekly videos again!
Speaking of gems- this one is a true beauty! On many people's "All Time" list, this Piper from Las Vegas in 2003 was an absolute monster. This video captures the spirit of the show and the song beautifully. Filled with raucous energy from front to back, this Piper delivered an infectious, rhythm filled jam complete with exceptional playing by all band members.
This great video features full panned shots of the crowd, Kuroda's lights, close-ups of Trey being quintessentially Trey (around 10:00 min), glowstick wars, and other all-around zaniness.
