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:
and here’s some random media from the event:
cheesecake, cheesecake, cheesecake….

totally forgot it there for a few days and was too lazy to go through the motions to get it back.
it’s 7:55 a.m. and i’ve been up for about an hour already waiting on a vanity to come for the new bathroom…
Trey played last night with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and i found a video of ‘IF i could’… phish hasn’t played this in concert in over 10 years now, so this is a good sign to me that we might see it come back this summer. one of my favorites for sure.
(i hope that works, if not… click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9jotrWgFEY )
other than that, tis a cold and rainy day in Denver and I can’t really leave the house. I’ll get around to organizing my lost-then-recovered iTunes drive today likely, and try and get some new music up on here for everyone to enjoy sooner than later.
Not much going on for music this weekend for me, however you never know what will happen on a friday night.
