kanc2001 Raible,

I think when you saw Aura at this show I know what you mean. This was my first and still probably one of my top 3 Phish shows. Up there with the Bozo Darien Lake 96 and Cypress, IMO!

It was on the campus of Wofford, a small Liberal Arts college of about 3000 kids. Lets just say this was Halloween South, it was the end of the road for fall 94 for alot of southern heads. I lot of my buddies did ATL>Boone>Charlottesville>Charleston>Spartanburg. I had tix to Charleston but couldnt get off work, so Spartanburg was my baptism. People were in costume which to a 19 year old n00b like me at the time was crazy! And lets just say the white fluffy goodness Brain fuel was EVERYWHERE!! think people were just unloading everything before heading home, not sure, but the WHOLE venue of about 2800ish lucky people were dosed to the rafters. Monkeys were loose in the banana factory (Fishman's reference to "Bad Banana" in Bike, LOL ;) I had a buddy who walked in sober and walked out zonked out of his mind and has no idea to this day how it happened (his drink I suppose?) he said he didnt take a thing, even passed on the vials being passed down the aisles! 18 years later this bad boy still rains fresh in my mind.

Gold medal show, I know im a wee bit biased being my first, but it really is up there. There really isnt a weak point in the thing, even the Bluegrass is perfect and fitting. I must say my favorite segment might just be the Sparkle>Simple>Jim. Just psychedelic as all hell and back, awashed in a colored display. Sparkle is white, Simple is blue and Jim was a dark dark green ;) BRAVO!!
