man, what a show...

i couldn't believe my good luck to see this show. i barely made it; i had a really good job interview in manhattan on thursday, and was so sure i was going to need to make a day trip down there that i almost didn't go to PA. of course, i didn't get the job, but before i knew that i decided it was important for me to go to this show.

when this setlist first started coming up on the rhombus, a number of people surmised it was a fake. never before had phish busted out with so many rare tunes.

07/29/03 Post Gazette Pavilion, Burgettstown, PA Set I: Daniel Saw the Stone, Camel Walk, Gotta Jibboo, Cool it Down, Scent of a Mule, Fee> Timber> When the Circus Comes to Town, McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters, Golgi Apparatus Set II: Crosseyed and Painless> Thunderhead, Brother, Harpua> Bittersweet Motel, Harpua, I Fooled Around and Fell in Love> HYHU> Harpua, David Bowie Encore: Farmhouse

this was the first time i got to see Camel Walk, Scent of a Mule, Fee, McGrupp, Brother, and Harpua, all tunes i had wanted to see for a long time, and all at one show!

what a fine warmup for IT!!!
