Well, the NYE show was outstanding. It was only my second show, and quite a treat. After the opener (possum) I turned to a friend of mine (his first show) who had a huge grin on his face and said "And that's only the first tune." I really enjoyed the light show, especially the strobes near the end and the lights shinging on the disco ball sending little eyeballs of light zooming around the Aud. The siren lights didn't really do it for me, though. The painings were really cool. By the third set, which I thought was by far the most intense, I was almost too tired to dance! A note on the jumper: (a friend of mine saw most of what happened) Evidently, the guy (dressed in a pregnant nun costume) was playing bongos somewhere in the corridors when security came along. He dropped the drum and ran down the hall then up the stairs to the balcony (sending at least on guard sliding on butt). Once in the balcony, he moved to the railing and when the guards came towards him, climbed over the rail and hung there until they were on top of him, then dropped to the floor (making his escape, I guess). I hope noone was hurt when he fell. Other than that, i thought the whole thing was sort of funny. Not that this is the sort of thing that should go on at Phish shows, but I enjoy seeing security guards outfoxed. Earlier in the show, the guy had passed us and mumbled something about what he had for sale which is probably why he ran in the first place. Opinions as to whether this sort of thing belongs at a Phish concert will probably vary greatly, but all in all, it added to a great night of Phish and Phun.
