Review by soundboy1

soundboy1 This show was about 40 miles from where I was going to college. At this time Phish was huge at my college. Nectar was out and Lawn Boy was still a huge favorite. I honestly don't remember much about the quality of the music at these shows. I wasn't very critical at all. Just being able to see the band I listened to all day was good enough for me.
I do remember some stuff about this show. First of all it was in a college gym. I thought that was pretty cool because my previous shows were in much larger more professional venues. I thought it was pretty cool when the banners came out. I was also kind of puzzled when Trey played acoustic. In my experience to that point they only played high energy ragers and I didn't want to hear anything mellow or slow. Mimi came out as well and I just figured she was at most of the shows. I didn't know Fish was from Syracuse and she wasn't traveling with the band. This was the first time I heard them play Highway to Hell ever and i was blown away. The reason for the long break before Fire was because they broke curfew and the school tried to kick them off the stage. So they played the encore with the house lights on. I thought that was pretty punk rock and respected them even more after that.
