arrows42 My first show. Starting hearing about Phish in early '93 summer. Was a 19 year-old college student running in GD circles. I'd first seen the dead in 91, and already by '93 they were noticeably worse; especially Jerry. I still wish he was here though. That scene will never be replaced. That being said....

I bought two tickets to the World Music Theater; having scene stupid Warrant/Skid Row there for free couple years prior.

Being a slight loner, I had no one to really ask to go with me. I talked a classic hipster/grunge college buddy into going with me to the show. At this point, I was quite used to Dead lot scenes. Lots of vending and hippies galore. Surprised to find the Phish scene quite different. Lots of preps actually. But people knew the songs! Everyone there was with it. They still seemed so underground.

I remember the seating was "General Admission", even in the pavilion. Never seen that. We dropped "orange tabs" of sunshine?double?dipped?don't?remember?something beautiful.... I remember running back to my seat during the first riffs of Chalk Dust. Being my first show, I just took it all in. The band supplied so much. Everyone had good seats, in that they pretty much had the seats they wanted.

Some will say this is the stars talking, but I saw a moth land on Page's piano during his solo in 'Coil. The first set was great.

Second set opened with 2001. I'd never seen lights move up to the right like that before...cool. Daniel saw the stone was neat. Esther....I'm still chasing. The second speaks for itself.
