Just a short distance from their stomping grounds of Vermont, Phish played the Glens Falls Civic Center in upstate New York for the first time since their 1994 Halloween concert when they covered The Beatles' White Album.

Earlier today, Phish uploaded video of "Twist" from the concert, a 14+ minute syncopated psychedelic workout with a bouncy latin feel. During this performance, drummer Jon Fishman does a nice job holding down the rhythm while the other members of the band go out exploring. Bass player Mike Gordon really steps up and plays some tasty licks. Page McConnell keeps it classy with the grand piano, and Trey plays precise and understated guitar parts before digging in on some dissonant chords.

At about the 8:30 mark, the band goes into jam that slows down and seemingly floats in zero gravity. After a couple minutes vibing on that, things pick up with a subdued intensity that rises to a climax and then comes down through the end of the video. Page McConnell does some beautiful harmonic work shifting from organ to grand piano and Mike Gordon turns on the super funky bass sound as he rocks the power drill (literally). This is why Phish is the most popular jamband in the world, and always an interesting concert experience.
