Issiah After seeing Phish at Great Woods the summer before and then at the Centrum for New Year's (Greatest Show ever...) this show was like: "Where did everyone go?"

Some buds and I caught a Greyhound bus out to Penn State thinking we were going to be hanging out in a Shakedown / Parkin Lot Scene.
Didn't happen; This seemed to be a Campus show mainly for students. There didn't seem to be many travelers there...

The show was in like a gym or something; It wasn't very big at all. We sat on bleachers like the type they pull out in an old High school gym...
There was this chic sitting next to us (Penn State Alumni) that had hid in the bathroom for like hours so she could get into the show. Think she said she didn't have the money for a ticket.

The most vivid memory of this show was fishman's mom Mimi gettin in on the action. She was free spirited and liked having fun.

The Epic Jam that was busted out at the New Year's Show in Worcester was now part of a full blown song known as Down With Disease.

If I could was somewhat controversial in certain circles. It was a full blown ballad, and not everyone appreciated it... This was our first time catching it live.

This was the first time we heard Big Black Furry Creature from Mars. Being a group of evolved metal heads we really liked the song.

After the show we went to an afterhours diner near PSU. Some "Jock" type college guy tried picking a fight with me for wearing a three coned cap. We were really out of place... The head scene was all but obsolete.

We had no where to crash so we slept on some grates outside one of the buildings at the University where some warm air was rising up through. Got a couple-a-few hours in before being shoed away. Think the bus station was closed...

Finally it was back on the bus to the next show in Binghamton. Man what a difference when we got there...
