popsgordon123 My first show and boy was it a doozy! I was extremely surprised at just how awesome everyone was and even though I didn't know all of the songs I still felt welcome. The show started out with the infamous Llama Momma opener, which was a brilliant way to open. Both songs were wonderfully played with some fine jamming. The Momma Dance went into Possum which was just alright, but surprisingly everyone was digging it. Cities featured some synth from the Chairman which was the first I'd heard of his skills on the Moog. Instant Karma! was fun and I don't think anyone expected it, overall not great but it was cool to hear Page rock John Lennons vocals. David Bowie was absolutely sublime. Trey really out did himself during the jam and it was very tight. Rhymes was kind of a joke and kind of confused everyone following the crazy Bowie. Divided Sky was pretty awesome, but I was in awe of hearing my favorite Phish song live so they could have played it terribly and I would have been just as happy. Stealing Time was jam packed with energy and perfect to finish off the crazy first set. During the break my Ginger friend was told he should be a model by this random cougar and I met up with the people around my seat. Everyone was nice and willing to share cigs and past Phish expieriences. When we came back everyone was pretty amped for the next set. Back on the Train was pretty routine, nothing special there. Rock N Roll was pretty forgettable, but the transition into the Mango Song made my show. The Mango Song introduced me to the whimsical side of Phish which I have come to enjoy very much. Bug was good until after the song when the Boston crowd started chanting lets go Bruins. Leave that crap at home! Pebbles and Marbles wasn't too special and it took my friend and I a second to figure out what song it was. Halleys into Meatstick was great and doing the Meatstick dance for the first time is something I'll probably never forget. Then came Antelope. This was the first Phish song I ever heard and when I finally got the chance to see them rip it up live I was unbelievably excited. The Meatstick teases were fun, but the overall jam was just harrowing. When the boys finally left the stage I was so pumped for the encore that I started grooving to the weird music on the sound system. When they came out and Suzy started the place went crazy. It was Page's house and the perfect end to a great show. I left with a sense of satisfaction that I had finally seen my favorite band live and could now die happy. Thank you Phish and thank you Phans for making my first show so awesome!
