VBSteve This was my first time seeing a member of Phish live even though I had been a Phish fan since the mid 90's...I used to hate large venues and jumped at the chance to see Vida Blue at a smaller club in Norfolk (this was also my 1st show at the Norva) - I arrived early and got a sweet spot at the rail on the 2nd floor that overlooked the stage and I enjoyed the New Deal even though I has not heard of them before the show. Vida Blue was amazing and played a lot off the 1st album and great covers of Stir It Up and Light Up Or Leave It Alone (I saw Phish play the latter in Raliegh years later) - They were also joined by Carl Gerhard for the encore
Score: 0
