A friend had told me to come with them to see this band Phish who were playing for free down at Colorado College. Never heard of them and didn't know what to expect. I was living in Denver at the time and it seemed like a great way to spend a Sunday. They has set a stage up between some dorms and the backdrop was Pike's Peak. It happened to be sunny that day and they came on late in the afternoon for the first set. I think there may have been a hundred people there. I didn't really get them at first although I enjoyed them. It was during the solo on Possum that they started to click for me and then the rest of the show went by way to fast. They came out for the second set as the sun was setting behind Pike's Peak. The front range in Colorado Springs is a beautiful sight although the town is pretty odd for me these days. Some clouds were hugging the top of the peak and the colors from the sunset were beautiful. The stage lights(what little one's there were) popped on in synch with the early part of YEM where Trey hit's those high notes. I loved the various styles of music they played throughout the show that really got me. Unfortunately they got some noise complaints and the show had to end. I came home that night a huge fan and am real happy for their success today although I rarely see them anymore. Keep rockin'.
