Review by Feetoid

Feetoid My first show as well, I went with my older brother and his friends. Its been a while since I've thought about this, so here's a list of things that come to mind.

I remember walking around the lot, beer in hand with ease, something that wouldn't be an easy feat for 16 year olds in the years to come at Alpine. Some guy in the lot later taught me how to open a bottle of beer with a lighter, something I'd never forget.

I ate my first ever, phatty garlic grilled cheese.

The My Friend, My Friend opener was killer, I'd love to see it as an opener again, more than any song! The album Rift always had a "wintery" quality to me, so seeing a first set dominated by Rift tunes set to a backdrop of the ski area that I learned to ski and board at was pretty sick.

Hearing Fee at your first Phish show is pretty sweet when your last name is Fee. Our lawn neighbors wanted proof so my brother and I busted out our ID's.

Whipping Post was funny from what I remember. I think Trey referred to Fishman as "the dork".

Contact > Fire encore? Only now do I realize how dope this was, even if Contact isn't exactly one of my faves.

To sum it up, incredible show. What I thought would be a regular rock concert turned out to be a party of epic proportions. All this plus 2 sets and a two song encore? What a deal for $27.50!!!!
