brendanmcauley What a great show this was for me and after a 5 year run of shows I would not see another until shoreline of '98- not sure what I was thinking back then but the end of the Grateful Dead in '95 was significant. I always saw Phish as a totally different band and this show highlighted that in many ways as I was with a dead centric crowd who was really into it. This was not your back east bar venue. This was a basketball gym at a major university in the southern tip of Silicon Valley. The place was jammed. And so did the band. They had already started to add the new stuff into the gigs and Fluffhead was becoming non existent even as early as '91. So this show was very cool in many ways as it was mostly ' the old stuff' at a time when new music was coming out. I recall the scene very well but the show not so much except I was on the floor. Afterwards in the parking lot area (a concrete tiered structure) the cops were hanging around and their sirens were going off in ryhthm with a drum circle and everyone was yelling "whoop-woo" to its audio gyrations. It was a weird scene and I was unsure of what was now developing in the scene...or was I getting too old...I was 24...not. Interesting event for me personally and fine musically if not pedestrian in its list.
