Phish - Charlottesville, VA 12/5 John Paul Jones Arena

I was able to catch the Phish show in Charlottesville, VA last night at the John Paul Jones Arena. They played two incredible sets.

Set 1: AC/DC Bag, Chalk Dust Torture, Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, The Divided Sky, Ya Mar, Sneakin' Sally through the Alley, The Old Home Place, Cavern, Funky Bitch, David Bowie, The Wedge, Bold As Love

Set 2: Tweezer, Light, Piper,Free, Sweet Virginia, Harry Hood, Suzy Greenberg, Golgi Apparatus, Run Like an Antelope

One of the highlights from the Charlottesville Show was a Naked Guy who jumped on stage just as Ya Mar started. He got a few laps in around the stage before security carried him out. When Phish played "Run Like an Antelope" at the close of the show, they updated the lyrics to mention the Naked Guy.

Phish - Naked Guy Video:

Here's another video/song from last night - Phish is performing Jimi Hendrix's "Bold As Love"

All in all it was another great show!
