peterb Thanks to a friendly reminder from Phish.net, I have realized that the Phish fan in me is now old enough to drink! Well, I was listening to Phish prior to 8/3/1993, I did travel up to the HORDE show in ATL, but Phish had already dropped off the tour and I really am not sure why I didn't head to Miami Beach when the boys swung by in FEB of '03...but wow, 21 years ago was my first live experience with a band that would end up changing my life....

Well, I imagine it is hard to get into specifics about something that happened 21 years ago, but some moments do stand out to me. AS great as the band sounded, it was interesting (to me at the time) that the band pushed the limitations of their sound system and you could hear it clip/distort and times.

The Jim opening, well it became a game in my head as ever first show I went to from that point on until a show in '95 opened with Jim. I recall the 2nd set just sort of started and caught a lot of folks off guard as Jon just walked out and started singing (Lengthwise).

It was a nice night out and was not crowded out all (for what the venue can hold), I imagine they did not play out doors that often back then, but a brief light rain came as Jon went into Purple Rain.

Anyway, I just wanted to put some words down about an event 21 years ago that had a huge impact on my life. I have moved on (in the sense that I won't run out of town to catch a few shows these days) and I am way out of the loop. I am really glad they came to FL for the NYE run when they re-grouped as that run left better memories than Coventry did and if a never get the opportunity to see them life again, well, like I mentioned Miami left me OK with the idea that I may not see another show, but wow, 21 years ago started a journey that went real strong up to '04...and thanks to this community for reminding me of my anniversary! ;-)
