Review by maru37

maru37 It occurred to me last night that my first Phish show was 17 years ago. It was the first concert that I had ever attended (Knick Arena, Albany) and it was just a mind blowing experience. Any Phish show is sensory overload so just imagine what it was like for a green 16-year old.

17 years later, that magic is still there. A lot of people have had a lot of negative things to say about the song selection and order of songs but I won't dwell on that. I don't take the Phish experience for granted. As Page was playing out the final few minutes of Squirming Coil it occurred to me that these guys won't be around forever and I'm grateful to be able to enjoy their music (and have for two thirds of my life). It was a fun night with great friends.

Highlights:
- Bathtub Gin, hadn't heard live since Clifford Ball
- 46 days
- Mike's bass solo in Boogie
- Grind was fun

Lowlights:
- Sugar Shack and Waves were a bit snoozy
