Anniversaries: Happy Birthday Dear Phish [Dog Gone Blog]
Today is the 26th Anniversary of the first concert the members of Phish (sans Page) ever played together. The show took place at the Harris Mills Cafeteria at UVM, and featured the band using hockey-sticks as microphone stands. Instead of Page, Jeff Holdsworth was holding it down on second guitar creating a very different dynamic. The band was going by the name The Blackwater Convention and ran through a list of cover songs in their first performance together.Click here for more information on the show.
