Review by DaleCooper

DaleCooper My first show. What can I say that hasn't been mentioned? The Antelope is absolutely vintage mid-90s smoke and YEM literally had me frightened. It really was something special.

Ran into half my crew coming into the arena in one of the great Phish coincidences that we all know really well. Drove into together and parked and started the party immediately. I had miracle a ticket to my cousin and we headed in.

I remember the floor being relatively empty. In fact, and I may be misremembering this, I felt like the venue was only about half full. We got up to within 25 feet pretty easy and never had to worry about people pushing or bugging. Totally stress free.

First notes of My Friend strike and I was really glad that I knew the first song (I wasn't versed in the lexicon at all) and from them on it was simply trying to hold on.

The above mentioned songs I remember clearly. My most vivid memory was "I hope the drummer doesn't fall off his stool." (He was singing Sleeping Monkey). The Day IN the Life encore made me happy as well. Acoustic Army and Demand are a couple of tunes I love having in my stats.

This is pure '95 greatness. I am glad and fortunate that I got to experience it first hand.
