fluffheadsbanker This was the beginning of my Journey with Phish! I was 15 at the time and in all honesty more of a casual Phan than the jam fiend I am these days!My memories of the lot are very fond, it was a really nice summer day and everyone seemed so mellow and cool, really just my kind of people, the lot microcosm is a really interesting thing to see the first time and it really is an awesome community. I loved seeing all the VW microbuses in the lot, gotta love those groovy hippie buses :) Something not cool I remember was the alarming presence of undercover pigs...EVERYWHERE, man! A nice young woman told me she wanted to marry Allie Kral of Cornmeal (my cousin) after noticing my Cornmeal shirt.Now about the music... I remember really digging the Tweezer, after that being a noob I didn't recognize anything they were playing until divided sky, which I really enjoyed and remember being very impressed by. It was really cool to catch that one, listening back it really was a particularly good Divided Sky for 2010,and definitely a highlight of the night. CK5 was insane all night for me, having never gone to a Phish show this was new to me and really complimented the spaciness of the jams. STFTFP was hot, and having familiarized myself with all of the Joy album when it just came out I enjoyed hearing that one at my first concert, what I REALLY wanted was a Hood though!haha

Didn't recognize anything after that until David Bowie which was a great high energy performance. BBFCFM was my first taste of how weird these guys could be, not the biggest fan of that song but it was pretty hilarious.The YEM was really far out and funky, another highlight for sure.Odd vocal jam.Very funny.Beautiful jamming moments in piper, 2001 had a great energy.While My Guitar Gently Weeps was a good cover of a gorgeous George Harrison Classic,I get the feeling as a guitarist that Trey really digs covering this song. My mom had the great idea of leaving in the middle of the encore,at the time oh! sweet nuthin' , to beat traffic flowing out of the venue, resulting in us missing Joy her favorite Phish song.

Great first show, if they play Alpine this year im definitely catching both nights, and I think this time ill be able to enjoy it much more.
