Review by redbandana19

redbandana19 Well it's been four years, so I think I've had enough time to ponder a review. This was my first show ever - Back story:

Dating a girl at the time and convinced her to come with me to the show if I got lottery tickets. We'd been dating for almost two years and she wasn't that into the music but said yes because we were dating.

I got a pair of tickets in the lottery and a few weeks before the show she called me and asked for a break. I was pretty bummed. My best friend promised to go with me instead and so it was settled I was going to my first Phish show. I was so excited those few days before, partly because of Christmas and partly because of the show.

Living in Maine we see our fair share of snow, but when I saw the predictions leading up to the 27th I was getting really nervous. My parents, said I couldn't go becuase the storm was still going to be raging on and they didn't think it was worth it for me to risk life and limb for a band.

Late in the afternoon it cleared up enough and my Dad changed his mind. He said I still couldn't drive but said instead that he would drive. He wasn't going to the show cause it isn't his scene so he spent some three odd hours in Worcester that night waiting for me and my friend (World's Greatest Dad points.) Although I think he really made out in the situation because he got to go to Cony Island Hot Dogs and stuff his face without my mom telling him that he'll be dead if he eats another hot dog.

The show itself was good, but nothing great. I still get a kick that the first song I heard from Phish was Sample in a Jar and of course it was the song they opened the show with. I still listen back to Roggae, Roses and that Mikes>Mound>Groove. Outside of those songs, I don't think you are really missing much.

But if you were me at that time, missing that showed would have been too much. Thanks to my Dad for getting me there and thanks to the band for a night I will never forget. I still smile when I get that "Happy Phish-iversary emails.
