Trey Anastasio Band’s co-headlining tour with Goose continued with an appearance at Syracuse, NY’s Onondaga County War Memorial Arena last night. The show marked Anastasio’s first show at the venue since Phish’s 2009 stop on their fall tour. 

Goose played first as they have throughout the series of dates, opening with “Slow Ready,” before moving into a stretch that moved from “Jive I” into “Jive Lee,” “Bob Don” and “Factory Fiction.” Of note, “Bob Don” appears on the surprise EP Goose dropped yesterday under the name “Undecided,” which is both the song’s original name and the title of the EP. Then, Anastasio emerged for “Mudhaven” and remained onstage as TAB drummer Russ Lawton joined in on a set-closing “Animal.” 

At the start of Anastasio’s set, the guitarist mentioned that percussionist Cyro Baptista would be unable to perform with the group due to an emergency and preceded to dedicate the opening “I Never Needed You Like This Before” to him. As they have each night , Goose’s Rick Mitarotonda  and Peter Anspach emerged on guitar and keyboards, respectively, for a few tunes at the end of TAB’s set. This time they appeared on a three-song segue of numbers from Anastasio’s solo catalog that Phish has since adopted:  “Mr. Completely,” “Plasma” and “A Wave of Hope.” While all of Goose has joined TAB during their encores on most night’s this run, yesterday only Mitarotonda and Anspach returned to the stage, sitting in on “Quantegy,” which appears on Anastasio’s early solo effort One Man’s Trash and “Money, Love and Change.”

Goose and TAB will close their run in Reading, PA this evening.
