forbin1 This was my first Phish show I ever attended...actually it was my first concert ever...I was 19 at the time and attending college in Delaware...Had just gotten home for winter break and some of my friends asked if I wanted to go see Phish in Philly...At this point, I knew very little about the band..only heard a couple of songs from some of my college friends...

Decided to take the trip with them as they had extras....if I remember correctly...price for a ticket was around $25...I could be wrong though...Got to the spectrum fairly early...enough time to walk around (it wasn't that cold out) and soak up the scene...I didn't know what to expect...but I do remember the smell of food in the air...I thought the scene was really cool...I had never seen anything like it before...

As we headed inside..I remember getting this nervous feeling...perhaps more anxious than nervous..probably because I didn't know what I was in store for...

As for the actual concert...I don't remember all that much..as I'm writing this 16 years later...A few highlights of the show I do remember are:

Chalkdust...I remember hearing this song being played in the dorms..and I remember saying to myself..This is cool...one song in and I know it...

Harry Hood..I also recognized...also thought to myself...this is a pretty mellow song that seems to soar higher and higher

Rotation jam...I thought this was something that went on at every show...can remember it being pretty cool... seeing the band members switch up instruments and keep jamming

Everything else during the show is a distant memory...although it would take me a few more shows to truly understand what Phish was about..I can recall leaving the show very excited...not only because I went to a concert..but because..I could tell some of the cool kids I went to college with..that I saw Phish, since I knew quite a few of them were into them...
