Review by jadedtiger

jadedtiger It literally took me two days to recover enough from this weekend to make a decent review. Blossom isn't only my first Phish show, but my first concert EVER, and I must say, several barns had been scorched to the ground this night.

I missed the first couple of minutes of A Song but as I walked to my seat and looked down on the band I immediately started having heart palpitations. I knew from that moment this was going to be the show of shows.

From My Sweet One on, my body just couldn't stop moving. even though halfway through Roses I started getting woozy, I was still dancing in my seat. Then IT happened. It was during Bathtub Gin. When Trey started ripping those cords like a crazed cat trapped in a yarn maze, I felt it in my bones, muscles, mind and face. Oh yeah, I had an EPIC face melt during Gin. I felt my eyes mist. It was quite lovely. Favorite Gin by far.

By set break, my partner in crime and fellow dot netter suggested I move to the lawn. I should mention we were at the back of the pavilion, dead center. Perfect view of Trey and the gang. I could kick myself for feeling sick and having to move. But the lawn view wasn't bad at all, despite being all the way in the back at the top of the hill. I truly got my groove on once CDT started playing. Tweezer and the Reprise are two of my JAMS, and when both got played in the same set, I lost my mind. I never wooed so much in my life.

"Getting IT" during Gin was not the only highlight of the evening. The sense of oneness and comradery in the crowd completely blew me over. I have never in my life been somewhere where togetherness was a serious thing, and Blossom was dead serious in that aspect. I can dig it.
