massofparticles Plenty has already been said about this show here but I did want to share a story from this night that I was reminded of recently.

My friends and I ended up getting 200 section row 1 behind the stage. There are TV screens in front of every seat in this row (not sure if this is is the case the entire way around the arena). During set break the TVs were showing the set break screen from the Live Phish stream. Moderately intoxicated and feeling mischievous, I start playing around with the buttons on the side of the screen and somehow managed to change it to the Caps game. As a Caps fan, this was a fun discovery and I was feeling rather proud of myself. After enjoying the game for about 15 minutes in my seat, cold beer in hand and an entire arena buzzing with excitement all around me, Tom Wilson scores on an epic breakaway. SWEET!!! Seconds later, the lights go down for set 2. "Well this is an easy call," I think. OBVIOUSLY it's gonna be....

DUH NUH. DUH NUH. WIIIIIILLLLLLSSSSOOOOOONNNNNN!!!!!

Of course they are playing Wilson. OF. COURSE. What else could they have played? There are no coincidences with Phish. I've learned this many times over by now. Of course, I was visibly and audibly losing my shit over the hilarious synchronicity of it all but couldn't properly explain it to anyone in the moment, or since really. Does that feeling sound familiar to you? I think it's a Phish thing.

Anyways, behind the stage is sweet and the sound is good. Also, this show is underrated.
