It was 25 years ago that the band from Vermont, Phish played the small historic venue in the heart of Buffalo’s Allentown area. It’s crazy to think that they could even play in such a small venue with how big they are today, but it gives many bands the drive to continue playing each and every show because you never know where it could one day lead. According to Kenny, longtime stage and sound tech for the historic Nietzche’s on Allen, Chris Kuroda, world famous lighting designer for the band, blew a fuse in the basement trying to plug in his light rig, and by many accounts there was a line around the block leading up to this show.
