soundboy1 So we were leaving the show in Atlanta the night before and Jeff told me "it's your turn to drive tonight" My response was "I don't have a license dude" Jeff"neither do I dude!" So that was that I was driving. unfortunately I had taken L during set break and I was still pretty high when we left. I do not recommend anyone doing this ever. It was a terrible idea but I was a young kid and I just did it. The drive from Atlanta to Boone was really fucking far. At least it seemed that way. Jeff woke up at 8am or so and saw that I wasn't doing too well so he took over the driving duties thank god. We got on the Blue Ridge Parkway which is the most beautiful road on the East Coast. It was late October and all the trees were changing color . it was stunning. I was still high and the scenery was stupendous. THis is the other reason to tour. It's not all about the shows and the scene. You get to see this wonderful country of ours up close and personal...

So we get to Boone and I was kind of worried about getting a ticket. I shouldn't have been because I walked right up to the box office and I was in. I believe it was 15 bucks... The venue was a college gym. A rectangular box so not the best acoustics. The recording I've heard of this night is pretty terrible quality but I blame the room. Trey had let the tour know that he was practicing the fiddle. We all thought he would break it out in Boone but it was not to be. We also thought it would be a heavy bluegrass night but it didn't turn out that way. The Greenpeace Mike chant during YEM was a fantastic way to thank a guy who was living the dream. Helping the Earth while seeing Phish every night. I used to stash my jacket at his booth every night... The Bowie was also fantastic with lots of weird backup vocals from Fish. I love that shit.
Great night in a beautiful town... Their booking agent really scored a touchdown on this tour. They hit some amazing venues/towns.
