oh man, this one has me a bit nostalgic and teary-eyed today… I cant believe if has been ten years since me and rob jumped in my mustang and drove from houston to the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation to see phish’s millennium concert.

I should be making a much larger post to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of this event but I can’t seem to find the time lately…

Anyway, the long-short of it is that me, rob and about 79,998 other people descended on southern florida for one of (if not THE) greatest phish festivals ever. The weather was perfect and the scene was amazing — aferal, we all thought we were going to die when the world blew up at midnight and the calendar rolled over to 2000…. Anyway, phish did an amazing job setting up the concert field for everyone, as well as the entire festival grounds and it was essentially a free-for-all of epic proportions…

the band played two days, on the 30th and on the 31st and the 31st was capped off with an amazing midnight-to-sunrise set that included several 25+ songs, and appearance on ABC’s millenium special and some general goofiness from the band that included giant hotdog rides, feeding father time meatsticks and getting a crowd of 80,000 to chant ‘cheesecake’ in unison.

ANYWAY, here’s the download links for both days:

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, there’s pretty much one overriding theme of this blog and it’s: phish.

so, here’s a few downloads for you on this lovely tuesday — maybe some of you folks who meandered to this site with no real idea of who this band is and what they do will finally get it.

Was one of my favorite phish shows I’ve attended.

This was just a week after I had lost my grandmother, I was at a college I was already starting to hate and I really needed something uplifting in my life.

Svenvold flew down from Bozeman in the morning, and the two of us jumped in my mustang and started our cruise to Austin from Houston. Somewhere outside of Katy there was a massive pileup and the two of us were stuck in about an hour of traffic – seemingly typical for a phish show (heh).

After getting into Austin late, the two of us parked and didn’t even spend time in the lot before heading in and making our way to the front of the old South Park Meadows. I miss this place, even if it was just a concrete slab and stage out in the shadeless austin sun… good times here.

Anyway, the show was outstanding. Absolutely no complaints — especially with (the last ever performed) Peaches en Regalia to open the second set. Amazing stuff.

We finished up the show, and neither of us felt like couch-crashing at Beaux’s house, so we cruised the two and a half hours home to my mom’s house where we crashed out until the HOuston show the next day (which i’ll give a writeup on tomorrow).

Anyway, here ya go… enjoy the show with Jeff and I some ten years later.
