Review by C_P_N

C_P_N This is from a retrospective lens, I'm more into Phish now being a couch tour person and hitting any shows if I can. This was very convenient to head to Orange Beach to see the Phish. At the time I only knew Llama and the whole Fuego album. I bought Fuego to blast in my car before the show. It's crazy to think I didn't even know what this band would be like, but we all have to start somewhere.

My dad rented a car, and rounded up myself and my two cousins who have different tastes in music. I took a dive on the $70 price tag for tickets, buying 3 of them for myself and the cousins. The joys of being eighteen and not knowing how to be responsible. $1000 of my high school graduation went to getting $200 in tickets for us. We got to the venue, got in and settled down for a good night. There was a couple a few bleachers down and by the end of the show, the boyfriend was so drunk out of it he hugged us and shook our hands lol. And a guy complimented me on my Adidas sneakers.

Hearing the opening notes of Chalk Dust locked me in. I got into it just from how awesome sounding the riff was. The first set, Rift, Chalk Dust, and Free were my picks that got me into this band.

Then, we got treated to a DwD jam. My first ever show to give me my first ever jam. I actually was in my head and sometimes thought "this song hasn't changed, but I like the beat". Moving on, Tweezer and Caspian. But to me Slave To the Light made me get into it again. That song has a feel good, reflection type of feeling that I can't explain. 2001 was a nice surprise, I would later learn that would be a Phish staple. Boogie On -> Antelope was the highlight between jamming and segueway. The boys threw that munster tease in there that made me grin even harder.

A great show. Afterwards, I signed up on .net, liked Phish on facebook, and would follow this band. After diving into past shows, the 90s etc, I found jams I liked and songs I really liked. I'm still trying to find jams that can convert me to certain songs. But, this show got me into the boys. And I thank them.
