Review by firstshow4_24_93

firstshow4_24_93 I was at this show and it was a burner. We drove up from the Philly show into the Arctic ice bowl of Worcester (check out the Theme from Philly, unreal). Worcester was one of my favorite first sets ever. Getting into the warmth after slinging warm noodles in the parking garage was just the beginning of our joy for the night. The YEM energy as an opener blew us away, totally not expecting that. I really love Clone. I didn't know this song at all, but mid-song the groove just hit me. Amazing hook. The Drifting is really great too going pretty far out considering it was a "cover." I really just came in to talk about this Moma since I just had a flashback to that night some 19 years ago now. The pocket they hit mid-jam is so tight and is just so Phish to me. I remember being in the back of the arena, in the stands, in the tunnel with a bunch of kind sisters and brothers and we just all grooved HARD. Sweating, vibing, in the moment, in that trance. Very '97 and just amazing. I miss those moments these days where we all rise and fall as one unit. After three northeast winter shows (BB King show also) we were good, and drove back home. Little did we know we would miss the show of the year in Nassau. Always chased Destiny Unbound in those early days and thought its was shelved permanently. Still kicking myself to this day about missing that one (and the rest of the show). Don't sleep on 2003. It was a really, really good year! Miami!!!
