Reflections on My First Phish Show in a Decade [Paste]

There is a lot of sharing in the Phish audience. A guy standing near me calculated that, at a Phish show, the music is “40 percent” of the experience. The remainder of the experience, according to this philosophy, is based around the light show and the people in the crowd. The light show is indeed top class. And when this same fellow spilled beer on my shoulder during “Down With Disease,” then apologetically offered me a drink of what was left in his cup, his calculus proved accurate indeed, perhaps more so than I wished.
