Review by Pillow

Pillow This was my first show. It's hard to describe the experience, or the nuances of this show as it compares to others.

But here's a few quick facts.

First, the next time I saw Rift played I wondered why it didn't seem as quiet during the "silence contagious in moments like these..." part. Like I said, this was my first show. :)

Second, I was the guy who never understood why anyone would "follow a band around". I didn't get it. I mean, I had been to a few concerts and sure, they were fun. But I'd never been to a Phish show. Up until this point, my exposure to Phish were studio albums and "A Live One". My friends and I piled into my car, which I had bought 3 months earlier. I had only made 2 payments on it. We drove from CT up to Worcester and grabbed our tickets from will-call. We entered the show, my life changed forever, and then we headed back to the car. Once we got back to the car, I grabbed a few things and then handed the keys to my friend and said: "I'm gonna stay for tomorrow and then head to NYC. If I'm not back home by Jan 2nd, then it's ok to worry." I simply walked off, and the rest is history.
