okdeadhead This was an interesting day in the Windy City. I remember the show being very enjoyable. It was packed to the gills. More so than any other show I attended in '99. Also, earlier that day in downtown Chicago, I ran into Bill Walton? Talked to him for a bit about basketball, Jerry Garcia, and got a picture with him. I had an extra for that evening, so I invited him to the show. Unfortunately, he was fixing to beeline it to O'Hare and catch a flight. He was familiar with Phish, said he was not aware they were in town, and thanked me for the offer. As we were parting, with a chuckle, he claimed he was heading back to SoCal to fire his scheduler. It was pretty funny.

MoPhish This was my first show. My friend Courtney had turned me on to Phish the day after we met in August of '98. I had heard a couple songs off of A Live One previously but knew very little of what Phish was all about. Courtney was a hard core Phan and over the next year took great pleasure in gradually introducing me to the band's studio albulms one at a time to ensure that I recieved a proper introduction. It wasn't long before i was hooked. We drove up from Normal the day of the show with two other friends and got stuck in a ridiculous traffic jam and didn't get to our seats until the ending jam of Divided Sky which was very disappointing but we soon got into the groove and had a great time.

This being my first show I had no idea what to expect. I knew thier studio albums well by this point but wasn't too familar with thier non-album regulars such as Carini and TMWSIY. Since it's been almost 15 years since this show I remeber very few details other than having the time of my life and vowing to see them as often as I could. The next day we drove back down to Normal and caught the next night at Redbird Arena. Still riding the wave of my first show the night before the 10/04/99 show was amazing!
