Review by broomecountyforumite

broomecountyforumite I consumed *something* before this show, near the amusement park, which greatly affects my memory of this show! I remember "knowing, just knowing" they were going to open with Llama :0 My pals thought I was a wizard. I think I thought I was a wizard.
Like a a giant scooper in a barrel of Phish songs, I scooped up every song (pretty much) that I hadn't heard in concert yet. I remember jumping 9 feet in the air and hovering there when they started Forbin....(I doubt that really happened). I had been anxiously chasing Forbin, not to mention McGrupp and Kung. I remember Trey telling the story in Mockingbird from on top of a roller coaster. (I doubt that really happened).
What Fish did with the vacuum in Purple Rain made me convulse with laughter. I think I fell on the ground.
Now, 20 years after the fact, looking over this mega setlist, I kinda wish I had a clearer less-altered head. Times were changing for us....we had all just graduated high school...about to permanently scatter across the country for college and wider things. This was the last month of the last summer we would all be together.
In many ways, this show put a cap on an Era...an era I still look back on as the times of my life. It would never be like this again. But, oh what a Farewell show!
