theothr1 to 8-3-98, i bid unto you a HAPPY 15th AnniBirthversaryday!!!!!!...and, to phishman0610, you are correct; it was an extremely tripppppy night at the Creek..i'd been seeing the Phish from Vermont for five years at this point and this was, BY FAR, the HIGHEST I had ever experienced the audience, as a whole, at a Phissshow (before or since)...the entire crowd was literally vibrating...the only explanation i could ever come up with is that, since the drive to the next show in Atlanta was a HAUL, people making that trek opted to lighten their psychotropic load and let it aaaall hang out for the 2nd and final night at DC...all signs pointed to a special show when the 1st set opened with the one-time-only performance of the Smashing Pumpkins'ssss Rhinoceros which, I later found out, was a tribute to a phan who had recently lost his brother...throw in two all-time jams in Halley's (followed up oh-so-appropriately by a humorously PLACED-PERFECT I Didn't Know) & Gumbo, tunes exhumed with the first Ride Captain Ride in almost six years and the first Bike in 100+ shows, well-timed ballads, an otherwise all-around psychedelic dance party, all wrapped up with a heartfelt yet playful double encore of CircusLope and you have a show that unquestionably has it all it still remains one of my most favoritest Phish experiences ever
