In the opinion of this concert-goer, who attended his 10th Phish show on Wednesday, Oct. 23, here at the Glens Falls Civic Center, the whole feel of that evening was one of contentedness, gratitude, support and deﬁnitely intimacy.
This Glens Falls show was something special for the band, for the Phish community and for Glens Falls.
You could feel it in the buzz before the show.
It was apparent in the thoughtfulness of the songs they chose to play.
Guitarist and singer Trey Anastasio conﬁrmed it in a personal address to the Glens Falls Civic Center audience.
You could even hear it in the musicians’ nerves at the beginning of the concert.
Phish didn’t have to play here.
They typically play arenas three and four times the size of the Civic Center.
But Glens Falls proved that community, care and gratefulness can outweigh ticket sales and bring top-tier artists to town. There’s no place like home.
