Review by LefthandMonkeywrench

LefthandMonkeywrench First off, wasn't Page on crutches at this show? I have this memory but I have never seen anyone point this out when talking about this show.

This was my first show as well as an earlier reviewer. I remember asking my parents to check them out in 98 (for one of the UIC) shows but I was in 8th grade so they said no. For this show I was fully ready to be rejected know it was on a Sunday but was pleasantly surprised when they agreed.

At the time I was most familiar with A Live One and Picture of Nectar but I remember not know many of the songs. Stuff like Bouncing Around the Room and Harry Hood were familiar from A Live One but the one other track that burnt itself into my memory was BBFCFM! Years later, looking back on this setlist I realize there were some great songs that I wish I could have appreciated more such as my only Dogs Stole Things, my first Carini, TMWSIY, and such.

I also learned from a teacher that introduced us to Phish that this was the last time that Son Seals sat in with the band. I know this was after his leg amputation so he was on crutches but I still feel like Page had crutches too.

Great first show!
