Phish Rocks Alpine

Wow wow wow! That’s my review of Phish at Alpine valley on Saturday night. This marked my 16th year of going to Phish concerts and if I say this was one of  THE BEST I’m not exaggerating. First step to enjoying Alpine was the VIP parking pass I purchased for $30, which is the only way to handle that parking lot hassle at the end. I was pretty excited to bring my friend Scott along with us for his first Phish concert.  I head to Will Call and we started walking down to our sets… and down… and down until we are on the freakin’ floor, maybe ten rows from the stage, way over on the side. I’m stoked and ready to see “my boys”. The show started off with Tube ,which happens to be the very first song I ever saw Phish perform live back in 1994. It started strong and they never let up that first set. I don‘t think I have ever heard the band sound so tight. I guess growing up and getting sober is a good thing.  A high point for me was Page taking center stage and singing his jazzy “Lawn Boy” and “Sparkle” which took us to heights of rock ecstasy. Now, I’m not getting any younger and I’m not in the best physical shape and it was hot, but I danced and boogied more than I have in, well since the last Phish concert! Second set included some of my favorite songs, “Down with Disease”,  “Weekapaug Groove” and their cool cover of “ Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley”. We were close enough to be bathed by the lights of the stage, which was cool and finally, I was in the middle of the glow stick “war”. I was lucky enough to catch this lovely necklace. An encore while short and only one song, “Quinn the Eskimo”, was a prefect end to this totally rocking show. Then, of course, we had to get out of the parking lot. VIP only took 30 minutes rather than 90, so all in all and perfect evening. I can’t wait for next summer.
