art_vandelay while enjoying a frosty beverage in the beer garden, i overheard two local firemen talking with one another, both happy as hell to be there. you could tell they were soaking in every moment of the experience, 'cuz it was probable that they'd never seen anything remotely like this before. even better, they admitted they were getting into the music as well...."i can't describe it, but i like it!" was what one of 'em exclaimed, haha....

another local hanging out in the same area joked that she might have to move away after the festival ended, 'cuz this event had spoiled her for good & the town of limestone could never match something like this in a million years, lol (fortunately for her, the boys came back a couple of more times, so maybe she held off on that move for the time being ;D ).

this show was one of the "top shelf" shows i attended, but it was a bonus chatting it up with the locals....i was initially concerned what their perception of 60,000+ phish fans would be, but everyone i talked with was having a blast & wouldn't trade those two nights away for anything...


Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
