Phish is halfway through the second leg of their extensive summer tour.  On Thursday evening the band visited Verizon Wireless Music Center in Noblesville, In.  The August 12th show was the sixth performance of Phish’s eleven show tour.  The first half of the summer tour included eighteen stops, which was a prominently Eastern U.S. run.   This second leg of the summer tour started with a three show stay at the famous Greek Theater in Berkeley, California.  The band then made their way East to perform two shows in the small mountain town of Telluride, Colorado.  Having just entertained the masses out West, the men of Phish were back in the Midwest Thursday to deliver a performance at one of the finest outdoor music sheds in the United States.  The venue formerly known, and for some, eternally recognized as Deer Creek has been host to many stellar Phish shows.  The first night of the band’s 2010 stop at Deer Creek, outside of Indianapolis, would be a hot one on two fronts.  With temperatures in the hight nineties at show time, the heat wouldn’t deter the band from burning down this Indiana music shed.   The night was full of Phish classics, gems that haven’t been played since 2004, one of which was crowd requested.  A couple in the 5th row would hold up a sign that read “Looking for Owls??” for a majority of the first set.  It wasn’t until the fifth song in the second set that Trey Anastasio would look to Mike Gordon to whisper something.  Mike relayed the message to Jon Fishman, and instantly the first notes of Buffalo Bill would ring out.  The couple in the fifth row yelled, smiled, clapped, and danced with sheer pleasure knowing that they were the ones to directly influence the incredible two sets of music Phish performed.  The crowd would leave Deer Creek on Thursday night with large smiles and pure elation having just witnessed a stellar performance.  Many were happy to know they would return Friday to see Phish to put the icing on the cake with a second night of their unique music.
