As many of you may know, I love to geek out on the band Phish, and I am sure there are many other phans out there that can relate. Our website is intended to be a travel blog, but in honor of the upcoming summer tour, I felt like using WanderfulLivin to share my love for Phish (and because I have a microphone and you don’t, so you will listen to every damn word I have to say!! – The Wedding Singer). I know not all our readers are phans, but hopefully you can all enjoy stepping into the freezer for a little trip into the Phish world.
I began falling in love with the band while I was attending high school in Rye, NY. At that time, they were on a 2-year hiatus from touring, but reunited in 2002, and I finally got to attend my first concert at Virginia’s Hampton Coliseum in January of 2003. Since then, I have seen the band perform over 100 times at various venues throughout the U.S. (and even Mexico). As I was celebrating my 100th show at Madison Square Garden last summer, during the now infamous Bakers Dozen run, I found myself wondering; What do I consider to be the best of the shows I’ve seen?
Now, I have seen a lot of amazing Phish concerts, so narrowing down the list was no easy feat. I started by selecting my top 30, and eventually landed on my top 10 most favorite phish shows that I’ve attended. My selection criteria were based on the following, in no particular order:
- Flow of the Show
- Quality of the Music
- Song Selection
- Wow Factor
- Energy During the Show
- My Personal Experience at Said Show
The full list of shows I have attended can be seen HERE. Below, I listed the shows from #10 to #1 along with their setlists and a little bit about why the show is in my top 10. Here it is, starting with #10:
#10: 7/26/13 – The Gorge Amphitheatre (George, WA)
- Set 1: AC/DC Bag> Timber (Jerry the Mule), Wolfman’s Brother, Funky Bitch, Happy Birthday, Wilson> Possum, Tube, Secret Smile, McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters> The Ballad of Curtis Loew, Split Open and Melt
- Set 2: Crosseyed and Painless> Twist> Steam> Waves> Twenty Years Later> The Mango Song, Bug> David Bowie, Rocky Top> Character Zero
- Encore: Harry Hood> Fire
Why it’s #10 on my list:
This show holds a special place in my heart. Not only because it took place at the Gorge, which in my opinion is the most incredible venue in America, or because the setlist was fiery, but because of a premonition. Or maybe better said, a manifestation.
It was earlier that summer when Lindsey & I were hanging out with some of our best friends, Cory and Whitney. We were partying at The Estate, and getting really excited for the upcoming trip to the Gorge. As we all lied there in my bed, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “The Ballad of Curtis Lowe” came on the jambox, and I recall saying, “How perfect would it be if they (Phish) played this during sunset at The Gorge?”. It’s a song they seldom cover, in fact, I think they’ve played it less than 15 times in the past 15 years. We all sat in silence listening to the song while picturing the beauty that is the sun setting behind the stage at The Gorge. It was then we all agreed, it’s going to happen! I mean, why wouldn’t it?
Fast forward to the first set, first night of the two-night run. The set is nearing its close, and the sun is dipping behind the stage. The band is wrapping up the previous song, “McGrupp”, and Page (the keyboardist) takes the reigns with a quiet outro, gently tickling the ivory’s. The music goes silent, and then it happens. “Well I…used to wake the mornin’…. before the rooster crowed…”
I swear I almost fainted with pure joy and excitement. The four of us were together on the hillside overlooking the exact thing we had imagined up a few months earlier. Talk about manifestation, it doesn’t get much better than that.
This experience isn’t the stand alone reason this show has made my top 10. They proceeded to play one hell of a second set, starting with a lengthy cover of the Talking Heads “Crosseyed and Painless” that flowed into a dark and dirty “Twist>Steam” combo. The energy remained ominous throughout the set, leading to an explosive combo of “Bowie>Rocky Top>Character Zero” to close it out. As if the show even needed a cherry on top, a soaring “Harry Hood” (complete with insane glow stick war), along with Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire” was the perfect exclamation point.
#9: 1/15/17 – Barceló Maya Beach Resort (Riviera Maya, Mexico)
- Set 1: Boogie On Reggae Woman, Simple> Tweezer, Roggae, Nothing, Ghost, Ya Mar, Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan, Rift, Fluffhead
- Set 2: Down With Disease> No Men in No Man’s Land, Sneaking Sally Through the Alley, Possum, Carini, David Bowie, Harry Hood
- Encore: Slave to the Traffic Light, Tweezer Reprise
Why it’s #9 on my list:
When narrowing it down, I had to consider a Phish show on the beach in Mexico to be in the top 10. This was the second year Phish had done an all-inclusive 3-night concert at the Barcelo Maya Resort in Mexico, and the first time I had attended. We were there for 5 days, enjoying all the luxuries an all-inclusive report provides, plus attending Phish shows on the beach at night. As close to a dream as you can get with your favorite band.
The stage was built in the sand, only steps from the waves crashing on the shore. During the show you could swim and splash in the waves and still be closer to the stage then you are at most concerts you attend. Being all-inclusive, waiters would walk through the crowd holding giant trays filled with assorted drinks for anyone to grab when they pleased.
On top of the experience itself, Phish crushed it every night. The sound was unbelievably crisp & clean, I recall being blown away when I heard the opening notes of “Free” on the first night. And while all nights were great, the Sunday night show topped them all.
“Fluffhead” happens to be one of my favorite songs to hear live because it has not only one, but two explosive peaks, and I also don’t get to hear it much. That gave way to an incredible second set that didn’t have a single dull moment. The transition from “DWD” into “No Man’s” was as perfect as it can get. After that, they continued to drive up the energy through until the eventual climax of “Harry Hood”. “Slave”, with its slow graceful build, paired with a high energy “Tweezer Reprise” was an ideal way to close out an incredible weekend down in paradise.
#8: 7/25/17 – Madison Square Garden (New York, NY)
- Set 1: Sample in a Jar, Lawn Boy, My Friend My Friend, Stash, Bathtub Gin
- Set 2: Fuego, Thread, Crosseyed and Painless, Makisupa Policeman> End of Session, Tuesday, Cavern
- Encore: Julius, Lawn Boy
Why it’s #8 on my list:
This show was night four, better known as “Jam-Filled” night, of Phish’s Bakers Dozen run at MSG. The Bakers Dozen consisted of 13 concerts at MSG played over 17 days, each night with its own donut flavor theme. Everything about the run was unbelievable. First off, they didn’t repeat a single song in 13 shows, but somehow delivered topnotch concerts every night. On top of that, at each show, that nights flavor of donut was handed out to the first couple thousand people entering the arena. To add to the fun, the song selection each night somehow tied to the donut flavor of day. For example, they played Neil Young’s “Cinnamon Girl” on cinnamon night, and opened with the Canadian national anthem on maple night.
On “Jam-filled” night, they did just that. Every song was jammed out a bit further than it usually is. The best part was they chose to add extended jams to songs that don’t usually have much of a jam at all. It started with an extended “Sample In A Jar”, but really got cooking when they played “Lawn Boy”, the second song of the evening, and a song that typically has no jam at all, for 30+ minutes. That theme continued throughout the night, highlighted also by a 30+ minute “Crosseyed”.
Now some phans live and die by the length of a song, but in my opinion, just because a song is 20+ minutes long, it’s not automatically great. Some long jams can be a little flat, others a little too spacey, but on jam night, the boys seem to be firing on all cylinders. I can’t recall a single moment where I felt the songs were being dragged out. Each jam took on a life of its own, with intriguing builds and soaring peaks that followed, it was fantastic!
To confirm my feelings towards these lengthy jams, I was attending this show with my mom, who was attending her third Phish concert. At times, she can be cynical of “Jam Bands”, saying the songs are boring, so when she expressed that this was one of the best live performances she has ever seen, my feelings were affirmed.
#7: 12/31/10 – Madison Square Garden (New York, NY)
- Set 1: Punch You in the Eye, AC/DC Bag, The Moma Dance, Scent of a Mule, Burn That Bridge, Weigh, Ocelot, Beauty of my Dreams, Gone, Rock and Roll
- Set 2: Wilson, 46 Days, Sand, NICU, Down With Disease> Ghost, You Enjoy Myself> Manteca> You Enjoy Myself
- Set 3: Meatstick, Auld Lang Syne, After Midnight, Backwards Down The Number Line, Piper> Free, Waste, Slave to the Traffic Light, Grind
- Encore: First Tube
Why it’s #7 on my list:
For me, this will forever be remembered as the Year of the Meatstick. Out of the 7 Phish New Year’s Eve concerts I have attended, this still stands out as my favorite. Partly due to my personal experience at the show and the night that followed, partly due to the fantastic NYE gag they pulled off, but mostly due to the incredible performance and fantastic setlist.
The first set was great, opening with “PYITE” (one of my favorite openers), and peppered with some highly sought after deep cuts from the Phish repertoire like “Weigh” & “Beauty of My Dreams”. I also must admit, I am a huge fan of this version of “Burn That Bridge”, which is a bluesy tune that came out of Hands On A Hardbody, a musical that Trey composed for, and a song rarely played by the band. To follow, the second set delivered high energy throughout, and featured the now infamous “YEMteca” to close it out. For those of you reading this that have no clue what that means, you should just read the fuckin’ book.
At midnight, the band came out and dove into a funky “Meatstick”, eventually being joined on stage by several groups of people from various ethnicities, dressed in ethnic clothing and singing the song in different languages. After a few minutes, shortly before midnight, the stage was packed with 30+ people dancing and singing “Meatstick”.
Before we could realize what was happening, we turned around to see the band being lifted over our heads in a giant hotdog and flown over the crowd. They ended up putting the music on a loop and sneaking off stage, unnoticed by most due to the craziness that was ensuing with all the dancers. We had awesome floor seats, so we ended up being directly underneath the band as the hotdog cruised across the garden while the boys threw little foam hotdogs down at the audience. They eventually made it back to the stage as hotdog shaped balloons fell from the ceiling, and proceeded to crush the third set. I will never forget that night as long as I live.
- Set 1: Soul Shakedown Party, AC/DC Bag> The Curtain> Colonel Forbin’s Ascent> Fly Famous Mockingbird, Destiny Unbound> Big Black Furry Creature from Mars> Wilson> Mound, A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing, Time Loves a Hero, Reba> David Bowie
- Set 2: Big Balls> Down With Disease> No Quarter> Party Time, Ghost> Gotta Jibboo> Light, Waves> What’s the Use, Meatstick> Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan, The Star Spangled Banner
- Encore: First Tube
Why it’s #6 on my list:
This show was the third and final night of Superball, Phish’s 9th festival, which took place over 4th of July weekend. Every show was fantastic, day two even made into my top 30, but this Sunday performance was a true exclamation point. While my experience at the show was amazing, and the playing was tight and on point, it was the badass setlist that really pushed this concert into my top 10 list.
Now, just because a set is filled with highly sought after “bust-out” songs, it doesn’t necessarily mean the show is great. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to hear songs you have never heard, but sometimes the flow can be a bit choppy when too many of these rarer songs are packed together (“Jimmies Night” at the Bakers Dozen for example). This show was jam packed with “bust-outs”, and still managed to have a great flow. (For those of you that haven’t read the fuckin’ book, a “bust-out” refers to a song that hasn’t been played in a long time, usually over a year or two.)
Any show that opens with Soul Shakedown Party usually ends up being a raging good time, and this was no exception. The entire first set was filled with scarcely played Phish songs that any fan in their right mind longs to hear. Throw in a Little Feat cover of “Time Loves a Hero” and a sunset “Reba” and you really got something special.
As the band came out for the final set of the weekend, fans carried in from the back of the crowd a gigantic fish balloon animal that was filled with smaller, but still huge balloons. The thing was probably 20 feet or so in diameter, and when the balloon animal exoskeleton finally broke, tons of giant balloons poured over the crowd.
A giant fish filled with balloons covering the crowd was a spectacle in itself, but the band made it a Phish moment to be remembered when they opened the set with a cover of AC/DC’s “Big Balls”. In typical Phish fashion, they absolutely killed the song, creating one of the more hilarious Phish memories I have, but not at the expense of the music itself. (Sometimes the funniest Phish moments have a less than impressive soundtrack, drawing from more of a gag song book.)
The remainder of the set blew through much of their rock & funk catalog, with the band really hitting their stride as the weekend culminated. To cap it off, the “First Tube” encore was lit up by a sweet firework display as we all celebrated the birth of our country in the best way I could possibly imagine.
#5: 8/6/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre (George, WA)
- Set 1: Possum, The Moma Dance> Sample in a Jar, Limb By Limb, Ocelot, Poor Heart, On Your Way Down, Wolfman’s Brother> Maze> Wilson> Fluffhead
- Set 2: Chalk Dust Torture> Tweezer> Prince Caspian> Sand> Tweezer> Birds of a Feather, Waste> Golden Age> Reba> Run Like An Antelope
- Encore: Suzy Greenberg> Sanity> Tweezer Reprise
Why it’s #5 on my list:
This is the second Gorge show to make my list, and it’s no surprise considering that the Gorge is the most badass place on the planet to see a Phish show. Obviously, my feelings about the venue come into play as to why its #5 on my list, but more than anything, this show is one of my favorites because of the fantastic setlist along with the incredible performance by the band.
Setlist wise, the song selection was fun, there weren’t any set killers at all, and the show had an excellent flow to it. The first set started off with some perfect day set tunes, a terrific cover of Allen Toussaint’s “On Your Way Down” during sunset, and rocked out 4-song combo to close it out, capped off with a soaring version of “Fluffhead”.
The second set is where things really took off, with “Chalkdust” getting the crowd amped up, leading into a funky “Tweezer” sandwiched with “Caspian” and “Sand”, and featuring some dark and dirty Phish funk (the best kind of Phish funk I might add). The madness continued throughout the set, with a nice “Waste” thrown in, and culminating with a tease filled “Antelope” that revisited most of the songs played through the second set.
The three-song encore was a great exclamation point, with a bouncy “Suzy Greenberg”, a “Sanity” that basically validated the fact that half the crowd lost their minds during the insane second set, and a “Tweezer Reprise” that literally vibrated my rib cage when Mike dropped that first baseline. A straightforward high quality Phish show.
#4: 6/29/12 – Klipsch Music Center (Noblesville, IN)
- Set 1: Crowd Control, Dinner and a Movie, Sweet Jane, Limb By Limb, Possum, Mound, Life On Mars, The Mango Song, Big Black Furry Creature from Mars, Strange Design, Birds of a Feather, Halley’s Comet, While My Guitar Gently Weeps
- Set 2: Down With Disease> Sand> Twist, Rift, Bathtub Gin> Fluffhead, Ride Captain Ride, Run Like An Antelope
- Encore: Cavern, Sanity, First Tube
Why it’s #4 on my list:
My #4 favorite show is also a straightforward, high quality Phish concert. It may not have that wow factor like some other shows on this list, but this concert is very special to me for a handful of reasons. On top of being a great all-around show with good flow, excellent song selection, and tight playing from the band, this show featured a moment I had been waiting for since I first began listening to Phish in middle school. A moment that I wasn’t sure I would ever get a chance to witness live.
That moment came early in the first set, when the band busted out a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane” for the first time since 1998, when they played it during their Halloween concert. It was played once prior to that show, and then never again, so I figured my chances of seeing it were slim. As fate would have it, on our first night of our 2012 summer tour, during our first visit to the Phish mecca Deer Creek, Lindsey and I got it, and it was beautiful.
I could have called it a night after that, but the band proceeded to play one of the more entertaining, fun shows I have seen. Obviously, all shows are fun, its Phish, but sometimes the band is being a bit quirkier and having more fun themselves, and when that happens it’s usually a homerun. If you give this show a listen, you will understand what I mean when I say that. There is some great stage banter in the first set (damn sign holders…), Trey gets goofy with “Twist”, and then plays a little Marco Polo with the audience during that Ride Antelope Ride. You can even see it in the setlist; Sweet Jane, Life on Mars, BBFCFM, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Ride Captain Ride (another bust-out cover I might add), Sanity… they were definitely in a good mood.
The 4-song run from Bathtub Gin through till Ride Antelope Ride was raging, and cap it off with a 3-song encore and you have yourself a winner.
- Set 1: Sample in a Jar, Sparkle, The Sloth, Sweet Virginia, Suskind Hotel, Strange Design, Stash, Sneaking Sally Through the Alley> Sparks> Scent of a Mule, Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan, Shine A Light, Split Open and Melt, The Squirming Coil
- Set 2: Sand> Simple> Steam> Soul Shakedown Party> Seven Below> Suzy Greenberg> Scents and Subtle Sounds> Slave to the Traffic Light> Silent in the Morning> Sanity, Sweet Adeline
- Encore: Sabotage
Why it’s #3 on my list:
The ‘S’ set!! This show was brought to you by the letter S. Sometimes saying something is special can be satisfying.
Talk about wow factor, what an amazing time it was to be at this show. It really was something special. From what I understand, this was not premeditated. They just started playing and after the first few songs started the chain of S songs, Trey decided to go with it. That may or may not be true, but either way, being in the audience was so much fun.
It was around the forth song when people started talking about it, and by the time they were finishing “Stash”, everyone was digging through their minds, trying to figure out what they were going to play next. What other S songs are there? Can they do it for the whole show? You think they will continue it for the second set? It just added this level of excitement on top of an already exciting experience.
On top of the excitement surrounding this spectacle, they managed to deliver a badass concert that had a great flow, and no dull moments. “Sneakin Sally>Sparks>Scent of a Mule”?? UM, Yes plz! When they played “Steam”, which was new at the time, it was so good it seemed like the ‘S’ set was played just to highlight that song. Of Course, it only makes sense to play Sanity at the end to once again acknowledge the fact that half the audience lost their minds during the concert.
For the icing on the cake, throw in an encore cover of the Beastie Boys “Sabotage” that hadn’t been played since 1998 and wow. Well done Phish. Find me another band that can play a full concert with songs beginning with a single letter, and have it still be a great show at that. Good luck.
#2: 10/31/14 – MGM Grand Garden Arena (Las Vegas, NV)
- Set 1: Buried Alive, Ghost, Scent of a Mule, Sample in a Jar, Reba, 46 Days, Big Black Furry Creature from Mars, Lawn Boy, Saw it Again, Tube, Wolfman’s Brother
- Set 2: The Haunted House, The Very Long Fuse, The Dogs, Timber, Your Pet Cat, Shipwreck, The Unsafe Bridge, The Chinese Water Torture, The Birds, Martian Monster
- Set 3: Punch You in the Eye, Golden Age, Tweezer> Heavy Things, Guyute, Sand> Tweezer Reprise
- Encore: Is This What You Wanted, Frankenstein
Why it’s #2 on my list:
Phish Halloween concerts are usually something special. Since 1994, whenever they play a Halloween show, they do 3 sets, the 2nd being a Musical Costume, where they perform another artists album in full. Over the years they have covered many of the greats, bands like: The Beatles, The Who, Talking Heads, The Velvet Underground, Little Feat, The Rolling Stones, and David Bowie. An impressive list.
On Halloween 2014, Phish performed a set of original music, loosely based on the Disney sound effect album – Chilling, Thrilling Sounds Of The Haunted House. They basically created a whole new instrumental album using some riffs and sampled sounds from the Disney record, and it turned out incredible.
At first, when I arrived at the venue and was handed the Halloween playbill that told fans which album they were covering, there was a lot of confusion. No one was sure what was going to happen, we didn’t know what to expect. Before the second set began, a giant haunted house was rolled onto the stage and a creepy voice began to speak over the loud speakers. There was a fuse that was lit, and some music began to play, but we still didn’t know what was happening. All the sudden, the walls blew off the sides of the haunted house to reveal the band inside, dressed in full white tuxedos with their faces painted to look like zombies. They were all set up in a circle on their instruments, facing each other, sort of just having a jam session.
The set was amazing, full of super funky moments, lots of rock, and even some dark & evil jamming (my personal favorite). For the third set, the band carried the momentum and blew the roof off. The third set of this show is quite possibly my favorite single set of Phish I have ever seen. I mean, “Tweezer” and it’s “Reprise” in the same set, you can’t go wrong, not to mention fantastic transitions and a huge “Guyute”.
I recall walking out of that concert and feeling like it was a special moment in Phish history, one that would impact the bands playing and the course of their music. It’s now been almost 4 years since that night, and in my opinion, that Halloween concert has played a significant role in the music that has been performed since. Beyond the fact that the songs show up in setlists frequently, each time they do, they change the whole energy of the show. Page loves to throw in some of his little Disney samples whenever he can, and he has used them in very creative ways over the years. It can even be argued that the bands jamming has improved since that night.
Something to be said about a band creating a full album of instrumental jams, just for a Halloween concert. I feel extremely fortunate for having attended, just another moment in rock history by one of the greatest bands in the land. And as though my night wasn’t amazing enough, celebrating Halloween in Las Vegas with a ton of friends at this incredible show, afterwards we walked over to the Brooklyn Bowl for a late night moe. Halloween show. Those guys played a Big Lebowski themed show at this bowling alley venue and it was amazing!
Two of my favorite bands playing extremely unique Halloween concerts in the same night, sign me up!!
#1: 9/6/15 – Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Commerce City, CO)
- Set 1: The Landlady, Free, The Moma Dance, Seven Below, Prince Caspian, Backwards Down The Number Line, The Line, Scent of a Mule, Saw it Again, Halfway to the Moon, The Birdwatcher, Frankenstein
- Set 2: Wilson, Down With Disease, Carini, Steam, Piper, Also Sprach Zarathustra, Tweezer, The Horse, Silent in the Morning, Slave to the Traffic Light
- Encore: Tweezer Reprise, Harpua, After Midnight, NO2, Keyboard Army, Your Pet Cat, Once in a Lifetime, United We Stand
Why it’s #1 on my list:
Talk about WOW factor, this show had me walking away with my jaw hanging down. It all started at Dicks 4 years earlier, when the band played the S set. Each year since then, Phish has played 3 nights over Labor Day weekend at the venue, and the first night of the run usually brought about a show featuring some fun with setlists. One year they spelled out the words “Fuck Your Face” (an old school Phish tune) with the first letter of each song, another year the spelled out “Most Shows Spell Something” with the first letter, but in reverse order. It would always happen on the first night, but in 2015, they didn’t do anything. Not until the encore on the final night that is.
The show itself was great, and would have been standing tall in my top shows list, regardless of the encore. First and foremost, they opened with the #1 Phish song I always wanted to hear them play. “The Landlady” was a longtime favorite of mine, and they hadn’t played the song since 1994. For whatever reason, this was the night they chose to bring it back, and they opened the show with it. I was in heaven.
The rest of the first set good, with a couple ups and downs in terms of flow, but an overall great set. The second set is where the show really picked up steam (literally). If I had a chance to write a setlist for Phish, it would look a lot like this second set, pretty much perfect. On top of that, the playing was on point, and Trey was really feeling it. You can hear it best in the beginning of “Piper”, Trey adds in a little extra touch that gives me chills, like he is just lightly floating on the strings, in complete control of every note, and playing with incredible passion.
With a “Tweezer” comes a “Tweezer Reprise”, but they never open an encore with the song. It was weird, and had half the audience scratching their heads. After that ended, they broke into “Harpua” and the entire place erupted into a frenzy. “Harpua” is played only once every couple years or so, and now in an encore? This was craziness. Each time it’s played it’s accompanied by a story about Jimmy and his adventures. This story led us through a trip with Jimmy listening to some classic rock before getting into some nitrous at a concert that made his head spin. The band then busted out another ditty that hadn’t been played since 1994 in the form of Keyboard Army, which is a jam where all 4 members make their way to the keyboards and play together with Page.
Jimmy’s story continued with his cat getting killed, and lead into the final moment of the evening that truly blew my mind. Besides “Sweet Jane” and “The Landlady”, there was one other great white whale of a song that I never thought I would hear Phish play. They only covered the Talking Heads “Once In A Lifetime” once, on Halloween in 1996, and even though I knew the chances were slim, it was still at the top of my list of songs I wanted to hear. Lindsey can contest, for years I would say it at the beginning of every Phish show we went to, “Tonight’s the night, they are gonna play it!!”. Well, I finally got it on this night, and I almost shit. Ironically, the band was thanking us, the fans, when the only words I could muster up as they were closing out the show was, “Thank You, Phish!”.
Funniest thing was we didn’t even know that they spelled “thank you” until we got out of the show. Lindsey and I were so blow away by what they played, we didn’t connect the dots. It wasn’t until we were sitting on the grassy knoll outside of Dicks and our buddy Greg told us what happened. Whoops!
This Has All Been Wanderful…
What an amazing band, I fucking love those guys! I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed geeking out and writing it. Let me know your thoughts, and if you’re up for it, I would love to hear about your top 10.
Looking forward to the circus coming to town, see you all on the lot!
