gossturf This was my first show. I haven't been the same since. I am writing this review while listening to the Wingsuit set for the umpteenth time on my 19th phishaversary. So there's that.

I waited out all night for these tickets outside the newly finished multi-million dollar symphony hall at MSU The Wharton Center for the Performing Arts (originally scheduled venue for show). I don't know the complete story but all of us who waited out that night saw the Wharton Center staff absolutely floored that there was 80-100 kids camping out for these tix. We had a good time that cold fall night. Thanks to my brothers Jason Ostro and Kevin Washington for bringing us supplies that night. Next thing you know, venue change to the old dingy MSU AUD.

The night of the show finally came and I remember vividly being more anxious and excited waiting outside to get in to that show than I'd ever been. I don't know if I was just freshman year of college and the first big show on campus that year or all the amazing new friends I was going with, bit that anticipation was electric.

Once the show started I was already hooked. I never stood a chance. The first set was full of new sounds and visuials for me. Before this show my best live show was a Billy Joel show at Chrysler Arena. We sat about ten rows back right on the center asile. I can remember thinking "I have to see this band whenever they are whithin driving distance" They ended the set with a guest appearance by Jeff Mosier and some bluegrass favorites. Little did I know at the time this was not a usual occurance. Maybe that's why I ways go ape for bluegrass Phish.

The second set was all I needed to hear to cement the addiction. I'd never heard a band that sounded like that and I loved it.

By the next week I had a bunch of tapes I began to wear out.
19 years later and I still can't stop listening to his incredible band. I hope they play forever.

Wow... it's amazing to think that this transformative night in my life was 20 years ago.

This show was mind-bending. I remember that it was originally supposed to happen at Wharton Center, and then they changed it a week or two before - why, I'm not sure. But this show single-handedly changed the way I looked at live music forever.
