Review by deceasedlavy

deceasedlavy Officially my least pleasant experience at a Phish show. I was way back on the lawn and it was too quiet, and I was with a sizable crew who weren't interested in moving up and possibly disturbing people, I guess. At least I learned the valuable lesson never to be a slave to the herd again. Phish played a decent show, but Henrietta shenanigans are about my least favorite aspect of Phish and we got a double dose here, plus "Mule" and a general atmosphere of summer silliness. This seemed like a different band from the one that played my hallowed Dane County Antelope. By the time Fish finished his godawful rendition of "Whipping Post" I had pretty much had it. To my eternal chagrin, I was basically turned off of Phish for a couple years. Listening back the show certainly had its moments, a fine "Reba", "Gin" and "Disease" but I like a dark edge to my Phish and there was none of that whatsoever, except in my bad attitude.
