Review by antipop20

antipop20 This would be my first weekend with Phish. It was a hot one baking on the runway. I had no major expectations of the music-take what comes at me.

I remember enjoying myself thoroughly throughout the weekend. There are few things I enjoyed on day 2: Runaway Jim was a monster, Piper was quite nice, happy with the only Catapult & Icculus I've ever seen and the Hood encore sent me home happy.

These are not the only things that made that weekend great for me but they helped. The whole experience had me hooked. I consider it a pretty good festival after over a decade later and a few more festivals under my belt. They set the standard for me and it's hard for anyone else to meet those expectations. I have seen some truly great shows but still hold this one with them because it was my first and nothing before it could have prepared me for what this band could do with the music live (bootlegs help but do not tell the whole story).
