Phish continued their three-night outing in Alpharetta on Saturday night, offering up their most exploratory “Soul Planet” to date as well as an emotional “Squirming Coil” closer.
The band started things off with the first “Bouncing Around the Room” opener since 11/28/2003, and continued with a rousing “Chalkdust” and “Fuck Your Face.” After a departure into “Wolfman’s Brother” and “Things People Do,” Phish dove into their first extended jam of the evening, segueing “Lengthwise” into “Maze.” Interestingly, “Lengthwise” can be counted as one of the biggest bustouts of Summer Tour; it was last performed on 10/15/2016.
Following a mellow “Waiting All Night,” Phish closed the first half with “Divided Sky” and a rocking “Character Zero.”
Similar to their Friday night outing in Georgia, Phish took their improvisation to the next level in set two. Talking Heads’ “Crosseyed and Painless” bled into the aforementioned “Soul Planet,” which acted as a launch pad toward some of the most comprehensive jamming of the tour so far. From there, Phish made stops at “A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing,” “Piper” and “Slave to the Traffic Light,” before closing their second night in the south with “The Squirming Coil.”
Phish close their three-night stand in Alpharetta on Sunday night.
