BDLemonCaspian8417 My first show!! I had been listening to Phish since I was a teenager and never got around to seeing them until I graduated college. So I think I wanted to see Phish before I took this big trip around the world, like a trip before my trip.

This show opened up really nicely, with lots of people in a good mood on the lawn. The first set was pretty fantastic as I recall. I didn't know much about Phish shows at the time. I was also on a headful of the fungus. By the time BOAF peaked, I could have sworn that Trey was channeling beautiful spiritual transcendence through his guitar. Relistening (sans mush) to BOAF it is indeed fantastic.

The second set was also a great time. Looking back, I definitely remember feeling like we hit a speed bump somewhere late in the second set, but I could have just been tired from standing so long. Dog faced boy was a treat, and the Hood was fantastic. I think it was the Hood that has kept me coming back. It reminded me of being a kid and listening to A Live One while I drifted off to sleep, and that feeling of being a phish rushing along down a river bobbing up and down not quite breaking the surface of the water. By the time they rolled around with "you can feel good" I was totally blissed out.

What a great first show, but bittersweet in that I was to go five or so years without another one.
