I need to try to see some different music next year. Almost every show I went to was Phish or Disco Biscuits. Shocker I know.

After 106 Phish shows, it's safe to say, I'm a one guitar per band man.

I was raised on a heavy dose of southern rock, The Outlaws taught me at a young age that there's no such thing as too many guitars :lol:

OK, i wanna play :D
(this is wicked hard except for my number one!)



hands down, number 1 is:
1. Neil Young and Crazy Horse in Boston :Phishfolk: (just blew me away! :bliss: )
2. Jackie Greene in Pawtucket on Sandy eve (best all-around venue, company, atmosphere, show :clapping: )
3. Chris Robinson Brotherhood at the 'dise in Boston (SO good! :gregoir: )
4. Phish in Worcester (hard time picking one show over the other, but i have to give the edge to the 2nd night :smile: )
5. Mule at Mtn Jam (again, hard to pick, but i have to give the edge to night 2, even tho it was colder than a witches tit :lol: )


Honorable mention goes to Ryan Montbleau Band, however, the 4 shows i have seen this month were ALL pretty freakin awesome, but the most memorable (for me) was the "Get Off" cover on Boston night 1 with a sit in by the opener, Mike Doughty...it was truly epic and once Carl hooks me up with copies i will be thrilled to listen to it over and over and over :ura1:

I thought 12/29 and 12/30 were both pretty crappy. I really dug the Carini on 12/30 but that was the only thing I found to be really interesting from those two shows. Everything else was fairly standard or even below standard. Oh well. I still had fun.
