OswegoDevo This was my first Phish show ever! I remember it like it was yesterday. We were in 11th grade in high school in Saratoga Springs, and me, Tim B. and Coop all got BOX seats from Coops super amazing girlfriend at the time. This was the only Phish show that I've actually been in VIP seats, and it was pretty sweet. The folks in the box with us knew we were a little younger, but could tell that we knew what we were doing (Saratoga breeds professionals) and could most certainly party, so they opened up the mini-bar to all of us....all the beer, wine, and champaige you could drink was avaliable to all of us 17 year olds which was in itself AMAZING...on top of the little purple gelly things that a few of us may or may not have eaten, certainly provided for a satisfyingly weird, heightened experience!

The show itself was OK. To be honest, I don't remember all of the exact details of the songs as much as I did the actual events and people. The music was good, I was already a phan, but this was not "the" show that people always talk so cliche about that changed their lives, I knew they were capable, but this wasn't "it" for me.......yet. It was for sure a standard issue setlist, that was an exceedinly fun time, especially given the fact that we were all a bunch of highschool kids out in moms car on a school night!
