a PHISH halloween

This past Sunday Kevin and I hopped in a rented car and drove to Atlantic City to see PHISH!!!  Phish is Kevin and my favorite band to go see live... ahhhhh they are amazing.  Last year we went to 7 shows!  This year we have only seen 3 but we are planning to go to see them 3 nights in a row at MSG for New Years.  

We stayed at Caesars right next to the Boardwalk Hall (the venue).  Amazing view!

It was so much fun to get dressed up in costume for the concert.  Kevin went as David the Gnome (anyone remember this Nickelodeon show?).  He even had his trusty friend Swift with him.
I dressed up as Peter Pan.  It was a repeat costume (I was Peter Pan in college) but it was a fun and easy costume to throw together.  The only thing I was missing was a dagger, oh well.
I made my hat, yeah that's right I made it:)  I used poster board to make the shape and then covered it in green fabric.  I used a red solo cup to make the feather.
Halloween is a very special Phish show because they play 3 sets and for the second set they always cover another band's album all the way through... in the past they have covered The Beatles, The Who, Talking Heads, The Velvet Underground and The Rolling Stones. This year they covered Little Feat's album Waiting for Columbus.  Though I am not familiar with Little Feat is was an awesome set complete with extra percussion and a horn section.  
Phish really raged the whole show.  I even got to hear my favorite song Harry Hood.  The show started at 8:15pm and we didn't leave until after 1:30am.  It was a long but totally out of this world night.  I am so happy I got the chance to see a Halloween show.  Kevin and I are both pretty sore after over 5 hours of dancing our butts off.  
 Now the countdown to December 30 (our next Phish show) begins...
