dpwilljr My heart was racing with anticipation just before I entered Boardwalk Hall on 10/31. When I received the Phishbill, I thought it might be a gag.
Experience has told us that they're always full of surprises. Then I opened it, read everything at least twice and accepted that it was going to happen. I felt ambivalent about the whole thing as I'm sure many people did. I was, however, extremely excited because I realized every song was new. I couldn't believe I was about to hear them perform an album in it's entirety. The disappointment of not getting a cover album faded away because I knew that obsessing over it would interfere with my ability to get the most out of the experience.
Looking back on that night, I still can't believe I witnessed two things I hadn't before.
The first was Phish performing an entire album live and the second was finally witnessing acoustic performances.
When I saw Trey pick up an acoustic guitar, I completely freaked out I was so happy.
I think experience has taught me that you should be fortunate for what you get, not upset about what you didn't.
I felt very, very fortunate on 10/31/13.
