Phish: Campus Club, Providence RI - 3/13/92
Here is Phish in their prime: after the sloppy early days, but still before the huge arena shows. This Providence show is just excellent. They're playing to a college crowd, showing plenty of humor and creativity throughout. The musicianship is rock solid.
Whoever compares Phish to the Grateful Dead is more than a little off the mark. These guys have always struck me as more of a combination of Zappa and The Talking Heads. At any rate, if you don't think you like them, try again. Listen. I have seen them in concert three times. I've always enjoyed their offbeat, musical virtuosity. A salute, then, to the band from Burlington, Vermont!
