Like a locomotive charging ahead on frantic drum beats, feedback whistle blaring to announce a slight change of course, Nisennenmondai's music is a loud woosh of steady, intrepid momentum. The Japanese trio offers both the soundtrack for dancefloor convulsions and jarring noise rock experiments. Get lost in the forward thrust of "Tori Track 1" or the meditative clang of "Neji Track 5" on the Tokyo act's MySpace page.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd.
