Mattynabib A lot about this show has been covered by @demandopener, so I'll just leave this here to commemorate my "Phisheversary" of 28 years ago today! I'd heard a fair bit of Phish before this, and I had ATTEMPTED to go see them at least three times, all foiled foiled: once through sheer apathy because I didn't get it yet, once by a car being stuck in ice, and another by my car being stolen (and thus missed the famous first Boston Paradise show)!

Finally, on Sept. 20, 1990, I made it to the Somerville Theater. I had expected to go, enjoy it, and be done. Needless to say, this did not happen: I was a convert. I ended up back the next night, early enough to be near the front of the line, and with my Tascam 4-track recorder and some cheap-ass mics. My career as a taper never really took, but my love of Phish led me to several tours and 100+ shows over the next three years, including all of the Somerville Phish shows over the next year or two.
