Phish - Hartford, CT - 1997-11-26

Phish, Civic Center in Hartford, CT, November 26, 1997

This is the last time I saw Phish. I really enjoyed this show, though not from start to finish. The night got off to a lazy start with Tweezer, but after a few minutes into it Trey really turned it on. For a band with a bunch of silly songs I always thought this was one of the silliest, but the version from this show really showed me what it could be. It is today's first download.

Another chunk of this show that cannot be denied is about 45 minutes of the second set, which contains just epic versions of Character Zero, Also Sprach Zarathustra (aka the theme from 2001 - which was about as spacey and funky as the movie itself) and Cities.

I always enjoyed the shows much more than the scene but like with most of these bands it is too hard to seperate the two, so I after this night I decided to stick with recordings and memories.
