NOW PLAYING: Phish – “Sand” (Live @ Redbird Arena, Normal, IL 10.4.99)

15 years ago tonight, I was getting my mind blown by Phish for the first time. If you’re just chilling at home waiting to kick your evening off, give this “Sand” a spin, a memorable highlight for me from my first show.

I was a Story of the Ghost late-comer to the band, and this being my first show was actually because I was a freshman in college and one of my first political science tests would be the morning after the show. Needless to say I kept it pretty tame that night but marveled at the new world I was ready to dive head first into. I’ll be celebrating show #50 at the first night of the Bill Graham run.
