macbergleton i remember this night clearly, and fall on both sides of the spectrum.

the first set was abysmal. aimless jamming. trey sounded lost through most of his leads. and the screws weren't tight enough for even golgi, leaving me wondering why i drove all night to get there.

i was a fan of the second set. perhaps because my expectations had been tempered. perhaps because it was just kinda interesting and fun. or maybe just because mike's big bass bombs during Free seemed to finally light everyone up and bring some excitement. the rest of the set brought unexpected song choice and a laid-back vibe that worked for me that night.

this was the first time that I could hear how far off the rails the train was headed. the inconsistencies that debuted in bonner springs ("meh" + "woops" + "yikes" ;) became a staple of 99-00 and 03-04 phish. i agree with charlie--i'd recommend several 3.0 picks before this, or many other, 99 shows. is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
