So we get to Boone and I was kind of worried about getting a ticket. I shouldn't have been because I walked right up to the box office and I was in. I believe it was 15 bucks... The venue was a college gym. A rectangular box so not the best acoustics. The recording I've heard of this night is pretty terrible quality but I blame the room. Trey had let the tour know that he was practicing the fiddle. We all thought he would break it out in Boone but it was not to be. We also thought it would be a heavy bluegrass night but it didn't turn out that way. The Greenpeace Mike chant during YEM was a fantastic way to thank a guy who was living the dream. Helping the Earth while seeing Phish every night. I used to stash my jacket at his booth every night... The Bowie was also fantastic with lots of weird backup vocals from Fish. I love that shit.
Great night in a beautiful town... Their booking agent really scored a touchdown on this tour. They hit some amazing venues/towns.
