soundboy1 We left the Wetlands at about 4 am on our way up to this show. I had a head full of L and was feeling quite grandiose at this point in my Phish career. We drove through Providence and it was the most beautiful sunrise I had ever seen in my life at that point. The city with the sun rising in the background is something I will never ever forget. We met this guy at the club the night before and he let us stay in his house in exchange for a ride home. It was a hell of a night.

This show was fantastic. This may have been a short NYE but it was a fantastic night. I was never one to judge the music with a stopwatch however so what do i know... Boston for me was hallowed Phish grounds. I saw my first show here and I had some amazing life experiences in high school here. So I was really feeling the whole thing. When you are 20 years old NYE is really important and fun. To be seeing Phish on that night was pretty heady stuff.

The show was killer. NICU,Antelope,Glide and Peaches in the first set!? Are you fucking kidding me?? This set the tone for what was to come. Buffalo Bill was pretty new to me but I loved it. At this point I didn't really think they would ever play anything that I hadn't seen but Phish has a way of shattering preconceptions. The Hot Dog stunt was hilarious. Completely unexpected and totally Phishy. I still have my ping pong ball that said "Phish NYE 1994" somewhere. There's something about them playing Auld Lang Syne that just makes you misty eyed. I think I was surprised that they were playing it which made it even better.

After the show we were exhausted. Up and down the East Coast for three nights with nonstop raging takes it's toll on you! After this show all I thought was "SEE PHISH SEE PHISH SEE PHISH" And that's pretty much what I did for the next 2 years.
