BathtubChin77 My first show!! What an incredible night with my best friend and two brothers in the city.

My brother, Evan, lives in Weehawken, NJ (I know, I feel sorry for him too), so I stayed with him all four nights and he and my other bro and my best friend Mike joined me on Night 1.

Wedge was a cool opener to hear, and I will always be glad to have heard Mound on my first. Axilla was real good rockin', as was the Birds that followed. This Wolfman's was a real different one that I had ever listened to, but it was great and Mike was really groovin for that one. Monica was bright and bouncy with a Simpsons signal that made both of my brothers laugh. Tube > Free > Julius was an awesome set closer, making my first set pretty damn awesome.

Hearing the first bass pounds of Sand, I knew the boys were ready to go. Very tight version that leads to an electric Piper. Tweezer will always be one of my favorite Phish songs, but I feel it was used up on this run. They didn't take it anywhere, and to add insult to injury, led to a misplaced BDTNL.

But, and this is why I dearly love Phish, the band sensed something was amiss and played the best freakin' version of Steam in existence. Damn it was hot and the crowd jumpin again. We got a chance to cool off with one of Page's excellent solos, and finishing it off with a well paced Antelope.

Suzy and Tweeprise was expected but overall, amazing experience for my first show and many more to come.

See ya at SPAC!
