Video of the Day: Phish 12/12/97 Albany, NY - 2001 Phish 11/27/08 -11/29/08 vs. 11/27/09-11/29/09

Most phans can pinpoint the moment when they transitioned from simple curiosity to hopelessly hooked. The 3-night Worcester run 11/27/98-11/29/98 was that moment for me. As an 18-year-old Phish fan in Massachusetts in 1998, these shows marked the most distinct launching point of my life with Phish, and, as I would later come to realize, played a huge role in what my key interests in life would be the rest of the way. The same can be said for many other people in the same situation who would become my best Phish friends and peers when I went to college a year later.

Regardless of jam-band music having no real boundaries, haters, as they say, gotta hate. But rest assured, Phishophobics, there’s more to jam bands than you think. Here are 10 Jam Band Moments For People Who Hate Jam Bands. Or, if you will, your gateway drug to the world of the jam. Read on
