adamopp This was a fun show. Mike had a digital LED display atop his amplifier that scrolled the message: "P H I S H 2000". First time I noticed the beginnings of a "lot scene." At least 2 or 3 groups of folks semi-tailgating near the venue.

this was my first live phish show and i thought it was just awful...

they even said it was pathetic during the end of the 2nd set... this really threw me off... i had been seeing the dead, neil young, the allmans, etc. and to hear a band declare they were pathetic on the stage was just so out of the ordinary i didn't understand it was meant sarcastically...

ah youth...

fast forward to my next show which was 8 years later at limestone for the lemonwheel and that was where it all began in earnest...

went to the big cypress and some other great ones...

i am an old deadhead and i know that some dislike all that but i just tell it like it is and was... i know now that phish are special but back in the late 80's/early 90's they and i were different i guess and we weren't ready for each other...

we are now!!!...

was at all four shows on the 2010 run, so i still pheel it!
