Last Sunday night, October 21st, Phish wrapped up the third and final night of their three-night Hampton Coliseum run. A hightlight of Phish’s Sunday night show at Hampton was a 21-minute “Simple”, which the quartet took out deep during their first set.Diving straight into “Simple” out of “Timber”, Mike Gordon nailed some gnarly riffs and earned his votes as the first set MVP up until that point, while Trey Anastasio forged a funky reverb path via the effects pedal. Page McConnell used various synth soundscapes to recreate the noises found in a 1980’s arcade during the first section of the Type II monster, and the entire band sunk into an almost silent space. Jon Fishman patiently brought the jam to a boil, locking in with Page on the clavinet as Gordon cranked things up another notch. Nearly halfway through the dankness, Anastasio changed the mood from a bubbling cauldron of sound to an airy sunshine daydream, finishing off the masterpiece, balls to the wall. Traditionally, Phish knocks this song out of the park in Hampton, and Sunday night did not disappoint. “Simple” made its way back to the spaceship-like venue for the first time in 15 years (first of the 3.0 era) and found a gratefully abducted fanbase.Today, Phish has shared a pro-shot video of the massive jam, so people everywhere can enjoy it in all its glory.
