...just in the nick of time!!! :crazy:

My friend from florida was coming up and she purchased the tickets from stubhub months ago. I vaguely remember the date 12/28/12 being mentioned but somewhere down the line we started saying the 29th. I was even looking for another 29th ticket for a friend (as I'm sure some of you saw)

So I drove to Rockland and planned to hang out with another friend , Barbara tonight. Barb and I finish eating a delicious meal when Christine sends me a text. A picture of the tix with an excited, I can't wait type of message. I zoomed in on the pic and saw the date.....12/28/12!!!!
By this time its going on 7:30. I keep calling and texting Christine with no answer. Finally she calls me back, mortified!!!she didn't realize, even when she took the picture that the tickets where for tonight's show.  So I jump in the car, pick her up and we high-tail it to the city.

We made record time and no traffic and walked in the MSG at 9-ish and phish is playing Stash :dance:
They started late like 8:30 or something. Trey must have felt a disturbance in the force, us not being there and stalled as long as he could :tongue1:

It was an adventurous and stellar show and I'm glad I didn't show up tomorrow, in a snowstorm with last nights tickets :lol:

Congrats Kashmir! I love music magic.

Congrats! Sounds like a nail biter...

I too was successful in getting to last night's show. I took my chances and took the train to NYC without a Phish ticket. Although there were plenty of overpriced tickets in front of MSG, I managed to buy an E-ticket for face value. Thankfully it turned out to be authentic..I realize I took quite a gamble with that. Fun times. 12/30 is the other show I'm going to.

Nice!!

Yeah, they definitely started later than expected, which was about 8:20. Before the Stash, was: Set 1: Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, The Moma Dance, Funky Bitch, Army of One and Tube > Stash.

Glad you made it Kashmir!! :)

I think they do it that way because all the lolwooks would show up halfway through the show otherwise :lol:

I have no idea. They may not be as late coming on as last night, but it won't be 7:30 either.
