Phish Knoxville 6/10/09 Live Blog

1:39 we are on the road and are driving through the mountains to knoxville. It is beautiful. Phil is driving the rv, and there are tons of kids passing us going to the show. Fun to see all the stickers on the cars as they pass.

2:17 we are on dolly parton pkwy! The girls want to stop off at dollywood. We made a compromise and are stopping at walmart

4:17 after a pit stop at siverville walmart we are on our way to the venue. Its 81 degrees and raining. Btretoch, broseph and strawberry shortcake are already parked close to the venue and awaiting our arrival. Word is because of the location on a college campus there is not one central lot; I'm thrilled we have the rv so we can avoid the rain and pre party with a big crew wherever we end up.

7:55 in and in sick seats page side, 100 level. Wow. There are a ton of people here to see this show and there was a huge shakedown outside the venue. Btreotch and I sold a lot of shirts in the lots. Once again the crowd is pumped. I'm thankful this is an indoor show cause the clouds are dark outside and big weather is moving in.

Mike's solo in undermind was intense. Also, crowd response on hood when mike kicked his riff a few minutes in was outstanding. Went back and got chill when i heard it.
