Review by SectorQ

SectorQ I am not sure how to process that DollarBill review. I have seen more than 300 shows since 1991, and this show is one of the very best. The venue was small and sweltering hot. It had pull out bleachers in the back like you probably had in your high school gym. The energy in the room was electric. To me, this show represented the end of an era of intimate small venue Phish. I think the band knew it too, as they quickly vaulted into amphitheaters and arenas in the months and years that followed. It was a special night for everyone that was there. I don't know how you could listen to this show...particularly Set 2...and not get the chills. To some extent, it may have some of that "you had to be there" stuff going on, but I believe the music speaks for itself, regardless. If I could give it 6 stars I would. I could count on one hand the other shows that rivaled this night for me in emotional significance.
