04/04/07 Page McConnell @ Gramercy Theatre, New York, NY

This gig fell at just about the midway point between Phish's summer 2004 finale and their spring 2009 return.

Before the show, I stealthily watched a filmed interview from a staircase. It was hard to believe that this was the same man whom I had last seen perform in front of a crowd numbering in the tens of thousands.

The performance itself drew heavily from the album release it was geared to promote. Highlights included "Beauty of a Broken Heart" and "Maid Marian," both of which would eventually find themselves in Phish 3.0 setlists.

The encore, and lone Phish song of the night, was my first time hearing "Strange Design," which has become one of my favorite tunes.
