The Phish show on 07/12/2023 at the Orion Amphitheater in Huntsville, AL had many high points, but “Mercury > Free” stole the show. This combo was like a journey, showing off the band’s knack for blending different musical moods.
“Mercury” kicked off the adventure, growing into a wild jam. Around 10 minutes in, the band threw in some fun “Pet Cat” teases, adding a cool vibe. Trey’s skillful strumming was a big highlight, adding his own touch to the performance.
Then came “Free.” The band moved into this song so smoothly it felt like magic. While it didn’t have the deep sound some fans might want, the band was clearly in sync, showing just how well they can play together.
A sneaky tease of James Brown’s “Super Bad” in “Free” was a fun surprise. The “Mercury > Free” jam really showed off what Phish does best – going on musical adventures that are always fresh, unexpected, and engaging. This combo was a standout moment, proving Phish’s creativity never stops.
Thanks to Phish for sharing the groove!
