FOUR YEARS AGO TODAY
Listened to this on the way to work this morning. People on the subway were wondering why I was smiling so much.
Three years ago tonight Phish ended “the breakup” with what will forever remain a seminal concert experience for me and about 14,000 other people. The hardest ticket to ever obtain, one of the longest waits ever (nearly 6 months), and more anticipation than probably at any time in Phish’s career surrounded the event. While the quality of this video is far from great, I think it does a good job at illustrating how out of control and loud the room was. There have been many better shows before and since, but this moment - seeing them on stage, hearing that first note reach out to us from the Languedoc - can’t be touched. FLUFFHEAD!
Phish - Fluffhead
