Today in Phishtory: 5/20/94 Olympia, WA

15 years ago today, the boys played in Olympia, WA for a bunch of dosed-out hippies at Evergreen College. When I lived in Seattle, I had a few friends from Evergreen who used to joke about their "loose structure" on campus. Where do wookies live when they are not on tour? Lots of them are from Evergreen.

The show in May of 1994 included a sizzling (but short) second set with a fatty 2001 > Antelope one-two punch to kick things off.

So. Much. Fun. This "venue" was basically a gymnasium and we were on the rail. The Fee opener was by request -- some girl had printed out a stack of 8.5x11 signs with FEE on them in big letters. I got my ticket from some dude on campus for $10. Win!

I lived right across Eld Inlet with a bunch of trust fund hippies, but didn't go to this show. I was rather anti-jamband music at the time. Just saw them at Alpine Valley a couple days ago--and I wish I had gone to this show. D'oh.
