After Trey Anastasio Band got its bearings with last-minute substitute Jon Fishman on drums on Wednesday, the latest “new” TAB lineup headed to Washington, D.C. on Friday for a performance at The Anthem.

Much like Thursday’s show, the Anthem performance featured a number of long, grooving takes on fan-favorite Phish/TAB crossover songs. After laying into a top-heavy first set with a 14-minute “Sand”, a 20-minute “The Moma Dance”, and an 18-minute “Set Your Soul Free”, Anastasio, Fishman, keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, percussionist Cyro Baptista, and bassist Dezron Douglas waded into dark waters to wrap up the six-song first set with “Quantegy”, “About To Run” and “Carini”.

Set two kicked off with another behemoth jam, a nearly 30-minute “Everything’s Right” odyssey, before Fishman and Anastasio amusingly delivered tag-team lead vocals on unhinged Kasvot Växt vamp “Death Don’t Hurt Very Long”. This marked just the second TAB rendition of the song following its debut during The Beacon Jams.

After a “Farmhouse” breather, Trey led the band through another pair of thrilling jams on Big Boat-era live Phish favorites “No Men In No Man’s Land” and “Blaze On” to bring the five-song second set to a close. A two-song encore of “Wolfman’s Brother” and “A Life Beyond The Dream” wrapped up with D.C. festivities.

Now, FishTAB sets its sights on the Big Apple, where the band will close out this long, strange tour with a pair of shows at Radio City Music Hall this weekend. For details, head here.
