Title: 12, 13, 20 years ago we were .....
Post by: lifeboy13 on July 23, 2011, 10:36:36 PM
     I've been passing the last 2 months of summer recalling the shows I've seen in the past and as each date approaches I recall the show and think about how many years its been since then. 

    It was exactly 12 years ago that I had driven from Minneapolis to Columbus, Ohio (7/23/1999).  I remember many parts of that show and the scene on the lot.  We had gotten into the lot early and had a great time enjoying the weather all day.  The show started off great as we danced through the set with a excellent Bowie and ending with my friends first Possum.  The second set was a fierce jamming set with a Ghost>Free>BOAF combo that must have been 45 minutes leading into Trey teaching us the Meatstick dance and announcing the New Years Plans.  As the second set was heating up so was the air, nearing the end of the set the crowd was starting to watch a storm moving in from behind us.  We were spent by the end of the 2nd set and after the quick break we all stood back up hoping the rain would start soon to cool us off.  Bouncing Around the Room was fantastic and through the song you can hear the audience cheer at some point when a small sprinkle and breeze start up.  Right about when the band breaks into Rocky Top, the sky opens up with a huge down pour.  We were all dancing in the rain like a bunch of hill-billies at a Jamboree and then the mad dash to everyones car ensued.  I changed right next to our car and we headed out towards our long drive to Alpine Valley which I shall tell you all about tomorrow night.

Yeah, I'm actually kind of curious about that.  Were you already a fan, or was that your first exposure to the band?

Twas the night before Alpine and all through Columbus.
not a hippie was lingering, not even  :wtu:
The cars were all loaded to the ceiling with care,
with hopes that they remembered their old camping chairs.
The drugs were nestled all snug in their place,
where no sherrif will find them, just to be safe.
with my girlfriend in patchwork, and myself in Tie-Dye,
We had set ourselves out for a long summers drive.
Out of the lot and towards the freeway,
through Ohio, and Indy and into the next day.
Waking early next morning to rest area Phish chatter,
70 Hippies taking showers using hand sinks and water.
Awake and refreshed as we finish the drive,
nearing East Troy and Apline we begin to unwind.
At a rest stop a few miles down Highway 43,
The people are waiting for the time to be 3:00.
Its into the Lots and the fun can begin,
Whos got my, whatever that you can imagine.
Through the front doors of Alpine and over the hill,
lays a beautiful, crowded, live music thrill.
On Guyute, On Fluffhead, On the Wedge, and Zero
Tonight they played everything but Time Loves a Hero.
As the crowd shuffled out to continue the show,
I sold cookies and sodas to replenish my dough.
With no tickets for Deer Creek, to be found on the lot,
We bought us a bag of the stinkiest pot.
As we drove home all stoned wearing hemp necklaces,
we were happy to have gone to the places we did!

So as I said last night, Tonight I will tell the tale of Alpine Valley 99'.
It was a beautiful day in Wisconsin that day, blue skies and a lot less humid than the day before in Ohio.  We were able to get into the Lot early and after an hour of hanging at the car were rewarded with a "Mike Drive-By" as he went cruising right down our row and in front of me as I was grabbing for the camera.  The show was fantastic but at the time was a little over my head at times, as I remember during my first TMWSIY.  The second set was incredible as they kept blowing my mind with a Kung, and Happy whip and Dung Debut.  By the time the Encore started I was ready to sprint out to our car to grab our cooler and some cookies I made to try to sell.  We couldn't vend at all in Ohio with the rainstorm, so making a little money was needed.  They started out with Glide which I thought was a little odd and then the faint sounds that I heard in the lots before of Camel Walk started and the crowd starting going nuts.  After they got the crowd elevated they dropped the bomb of an Alumni Blues.  The encore was just another highlight of my two day run with the band that I will remember til the day I die.  Afterwards I ran to our car and grabbed a cooler and about 70 bags of cookies, I walked against traffic for a bit and stopped to vend.  Within about 20 minutes I made $120 and bought a bag of nugs from one of my customers, back then $120 was gas money for the whole trip plus a few Grand Slams at Denny's.  God Bless the old 90's Phish tours.

It was 13 years ago today that I saw my first Phish show on the road.  I had to take a bus to Madison and hitchhike to Alpine to do it but with tickets to Alpine and the two Deer Creek shows I left town with a backpack and a small two man tent.  I got to Madison around Midnight on August 1st and started walking, first to a gas station for some directions where the attendant traded me anything I could carry for a little weed and then off to an interstate exit for HWY 39 south.  I walked for about an hour and eventually got to the HWY and got a lift, too bad it was some perverted homosexual that asked me to show him my dick about halfway to Janesville.  I got out of that situation safely and with my homo-virginity intact and spent an hour calming my nerves at a Denny's.  After some grub I was at a county rd that went to East Troy so I got out there and started walking down one of the darkest country roads I've ever seen and being 2:00am I thought I would never get a ride.  First car drove past me after about 30 minutes and sure enough it was a couple of locals out partying on coke and seeing my Tye-Dye they picked me up.  Partied with them for a couple of hours and took a nap as they kept partying, but they were very nice and took me to Alpine when the sun came up.  Getting to Alpine in one piece just as everyone was showing up from driving all night long from Ohio was cool.  I started talking to everyone and learning about tour.  Everyone was really great and kind, helping me out with a soda or a story.  Walking into the show someone had a reserved they were trying to sell and I upgraded my Lawn for $10+my ticket.  To have a decent seat for this show was incredible, from Ramble On to Been Caught Stealing this show was everything I was hoping it would be and more.  After the show I got my first veggie burrito and witnessed the massive lot party that follows a summer show, then headed to where all the cars were leaving where I sat pathetically hoping for a ride to Indiana.  Within 10 minutes a nice couple about my age let me into their car and I graciously offered gas money.  I can't remember the guys name but his girlfriends name was Erin and they were driving across the country following Phish while heading home to Pennsylvania.  They were on the road to Deer Creek and so was I, with two new friends and a whole new outlook on life!  13 Years Ago (8/01/98)!

  13 Years ago today (8/2/98) I met Mike in the Deer Creek Parking lot.  He was in his cart with some chick and totally answering any questions people could think of.  I remember him not wanting to sign a book of someones because it wasn't trademarked by the band.  I got my Alpine stub signed by him and I was just starting to trip in the cool vibes of the venue camping area so it was truly a highlight of my life.  This show had my first and only Lifeboy in it.

18 years ago today I was a wide-eyed naive 12 year old boy. I walked into the Murat Theatre in downtown Indy and experienced the first of countless nights of happiness watching a little band called Phish. I walked out of that show not fully understanding what I had just seen and was then a wide-eyed naive 12 year old phishhead.

15 years ago today I saw they boys play one of my favorite Mike's songs at Deer Creek.

1 year ago today, there was a massive Paug meet-up at Deer Creek.

This Reba is one of my Top 5 versions, as well as the Disease.
The band killed it for all of those that didn't skip out before heading to The Ball with massive versions of Jim, Tweezer and YEM.
I tagged up a fileset if you wanna give this one a listen.

I drove the whole night from Deer Creek to Hershey, just to get to our campground (Hershey High Meadows), a few hours before the show.  We walked to and from the venue.  So glad I caught this show, it's one of my favourites!  Gonna go listen to it now. :-)

Just got this email when I got to work this morning.

Hey Phishy69,

According to what you entered at Phish.net, today is the 14th anniversary of your first Phish show! To help you reminisce about the 14 long years since walking into Loring Commerce Center at Loring Air Force Base in 1997, we invite you to visit http://phi.sh/970816 for the setlist and download links.

What an incredible weekend that was and got me completely hooked on these guys.

It was twenty years ago today...

(https://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/539826_10150936847591645_1136602826_n.jpg)

The HORDE tour presented by Canada Dry & Maxell.

the Line-Up:

Col. Bruce Hampton (ret.) and the Aquarium Rescue Unit ->
Widespread Panic
Spin Doctors
Phish
Blues Traveler

It was not my first rock show (Rush in 1991)... but it was my first "jamband" show. Of course, nobody used the term "jamband" back then.

I was a huge Blues Traveler fan. I remember when their second album was released ("Travelers and Thieves") I went to Record Town at the Short Hills Mall and bought it that very day. Prominently displayed next to it was "A Picture of Nectar" which I did not buy on that day... soon...

Of course, Spin Doctors were just starting to blow up at this time, too. They had a single (Two Princes) climbing the charts... but in Jersey, we were already very familiar with those guys. We knew they were buddies with Blues Traveler, but I never really thought they were as good. For the record, I still love John Popper. Guy has tremendous talent as a song writer, singer, harp player, guitarist, and is a great guy ta-boot.

So, we head down to Garden State Arts Center on this fateful day 20 years ago... ARU is on stage first. I'm admittedly a little lost... trying to get my bearings around this hippie crowd. People are smoking weed... men are hugging other men... cute girls in flowing dresses are already spinning in circles...

Anyway, ARU is playing and slowly, one by one, these other musicians are joining them onstage. Then slowly, one by one, the members of ARU are leaving the stage. Before I know it, we are hearing Widespread Panic. Now, people on this board know I'm not the biggest WSP fan, but I gotta admit, this transition was cool. It really set the stage for the rest of the day. This was no normal rock and roll show.

Once WSP finishes their set, there is a brief break in the music. I say brief because it was. This HORDE tour had a huge rotating stage. So, while WSP was playing, the roadies were setting up for Spin Dr.s behind them. So, it took about 10 minutes to rotate the stage and they were ready to go!

The Spin Doctors set was cool. I remember it really well. Their front man is a freak and chicks in the crowd were loving it. I remember looking around at the really hippie-looking folks in the crowd and seeing a lot of standing around with hands in pockets just sort of grooving in one spot.

Next up was Phish. I had heard some Phish tapes at a few basement parties over the previous few years, but I never really listened too closely. I was definitely unfamiliar and unprepared for this. I will say, the energy in the crowd went up a few notches once Phish hit the stage. Those hippie dudes no longer had their hands in their pockets - they were dancing.

the setlist:

Set 1: The Landlady, Runaway Jim, Foam, Sparkle, Stash, The Squirming Coil, Cavern > Vacuum Solo > Cavern, You Enjoy Myself, Suzy Greenberg

*Several “official” H.O.R.D.E. dancers took the stage during The Landlady to dance with Trey and Mike. During the tramps segment of YEM, an extra tramp and microphone were brought out for John Popper. On his first jump, though, Popper jumped right through the trampoline. Embarrassed, he left the stage.


What I remember:

Seeing Trey and Mike looking like they were headbanging from the lawn. I mean, you'd have thought they were playing "Master of Puppets" by looking at them, but the music pouring out was Latin jazz.

I also remember my attitude towards front-man antics changed a lot that day once I saw a band where all 4 guys were serious musicians. It just made Chris Barron look like an idiot by comparison. It's funny, because I sing and I love to sing... and I had a few opportunities to sing with bands both in high school and my freshman year of college - but by the time I was in college I really felt like an idiot out front singing... I'm definitely not a "musician" so why would I be in a band.

I remember Runaway Jim... I remember Stash just because I loved the way it sounded from the very beginning. It was my first favorite Phish song.

I remember Cavern and the vacuum solo. I remember the trampolines and the whole John Popper prank. I was pretty geeked out to think that Popper was going to jam with Phish and a little bummed when he didn't, but the prank was hilarious.

I remember the vocal jam out of YEM and thinking "this must be for the people on acid... I bet this sounds great on acid."

I sort of remember Suzy... then it was over.

By the time Blues Traveler hit the stage, the sun had set and the crowd energy had come down quite a bit. I enjoyed their set, which included Warren Haynes (then of the Allman Brothers) sitting in on Mountain Cry. But it was a let-down after Phish. Needless to say, I've seen Blues Traveler a couple dozen times since and enjoyed every show, but never have been blown away. I still love John Popper and always will.

Since that day I have seen Phish a total of 120 times including this past Sunday in Saratoga Springs, NY. I celebrated my 20 year Phishiversary on Sunday and the boys made it special for me. I caught my first La Grange. They encored with a monster YEM. I spent the weekend with Wendel and his brother (and a bunch of other great folks). Over half of my 120 shows (66 to be exact) I have seen with Wendel. It's just what we do whenever we can. I wouldn't have it any other way... Can't wait to do it again.

super fun times just 12 years ago today...

Tuesday, 07/11/2000
Deer Creek Music Center, Noblesville, IN

Set 1: Ya Mar, The Moma Dance, Uncle Pen, Drowned, Chalk Dust Torture Reprise > Chalk Dust Torture, Theme From the Bottom > Cavern

Set 2: Also Sprach Zarathustra > Down with Disease -> Moby Dick > Down with Disease > Runaway Jim -> Moby Dick, Back on the Train -> Moby Dick > Back on the Train, Harry Hood[1] > Moby Dick, Hold Your Head Up > Terrapin > Hold Your Head Up > Moby Dick[2] > Hold Your Head Up, Character Zero

Encore: First Tube > Moby Dick > Chalk Dust Torture Reprise


[1] Moby Dick tease.
[2] Trey on drums and Fishman on vacuum.


Notes: In keeping with the theme of the second set, Hood included a Moby Dick tease. Trey introduced Fishman as “Russell Crowe” during Terrapin. The Moby Dick inside of the HYHU jam featured Trey on drums and Fishman on vacuum. The Chalk Dust Reprise was akin to the version last played on December 10, 1994 (391 shows), with the band singing the words “Chalk Dust Torture” over varied music. At the end of the encore, Trey joked that, if anyone missed anything, they should read the book or see the movie. Prior to this show, Moby Dick had not been played since November 29, 1997 (172 shows).

That show was amazing. I was on three hits of some tye-dyed blotter and I vaguely remember turning to my buddy when DWD turned into Moby Dick and losing my shit. Just out of this world happy, a pinnacle of joy. The feeling kept getting better and better everytine they would go back into it. By the end of the encore i was crying tears of happiness. That night I danced my way back to our campsite, a few cornfields away, singing the music of Moby Dick and occasionally singing 'Tourturrrrrre'.

13 years ago today I was sitting second row center for one of my favorite shows I've been to. I scored 5 second row center seats through public on sale at the local ticketmaster outlet because I went to high school with the girl who was running the lottery and she liked me, so she called my number as the first to get to buy tickets!!

13 years ago today I was sitting second row center for one of my favorite shows I've been to. I scored 5 second row center seats through public on sale at the local ticketmaster outlet because I went to high school with the girl who was running the lottery and she liked me, so she called my number as the first to get to buy tickets!!

22 YEARS AGO MY FIRST SHOW...began on the 13th but ended after midnight, so on the 14th, which is my birthday. Was driven down to New York with a bunch of musicians I played with. I was the young drummer, they were all 5-7 years older than me. When we played bars, I used to play with a ball cap on and always came in the backdoor.

We drove down to Wetlands, I had never been to NYC, so was pretty overwhelmed simply by the surroundings. They dosed me a little while outside of the city. By the time we got to the bar, shit was real melty. I'm not really sure how I got in, as I am positive they were ID'ing people at the door. I think one of the guys I was with slipped the door man a hundo. I'm not even sure if we had tickets but there was a line to get in as I remember being a little cold.

I seem to remember going up stairs to the club, pretty sure there was some other shit going on on the lower floor, maybe a bar. I do vaguely remember the VW but maybe not. I was so fucking high. Everyone was dressed crazy hippie freak style or glittery beginning raver style, it was like all the cool people from the dead lot were there minus the sketch bags. Everyone was on acid, and I mean everyone. I thought this is what it might have been like at one of the early acid tests. And then the band came on.

I had never even heard them before, no live tapes, no album, nothing. I found a boogie down section in this packed, sweaty, cooking hot club, closed my eyes, and twirled the night away with a couple older hippie chicks (my usual concert routine for those who have witnessed it...well, now they're younger hippie chicks). I would be lying if I said I remembered anything that was played. Sad cause it was bust out city. First Tube, first Landlady, first Buried Alive, first Stash ever played.

But not knowing the songs, it just felt like a continuous stream of really weird, fast, complicated music. Naturally, I had trouble figuring out what was jamming and what was composed. The guitar player was unbelievable, and seemed a step ahead of the band. The closest thing I could compare it to, with my limited musical lexicon at the time, was Zappa. And then an even weirder looking Dude joined them on stage singing and dancing. And then they played La Grange. LOL. Mind fucking blown.

That's way cooler than Darien Lake, 12 years ago today.

I've generally found that people who were on the lawn hated that show, people under the roof thought it was cool.  In retrospect it's everything that I dislike about Fall 2000, but the Reba is good times.

Ah, thanks for clarifying buddy. As I've said before, I have no idea how Caravan manages to recall certain intricacies of his adventures. Regrettably, attending somewhere around a thousand live music events, the majority on acid, and then attempting to recall the confines of some small club you went to 22 years ago is no longer in my cards.  :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

Are you trying to tell me how acid and musical environments work together? Lulz.

......but seriously n00b, do you have any idea how many concerts I have seen on acid. Good Lord, I did the late punk skate scene (prior to your Green Day days  :wink: ), so Pixies, Ramones, JFA, DOA, etc.... Then the Rock and Roll metal re-birth with Guns and Roses which bled into the West Coast grunge scene, during which I was funding money to host raves, of which I attended hundreds. And all this while hitting jam band shows and letting that love grow. Oh and I nearly forgot the hundreds of jazz shows I have seen. Basically, all I did for 15 years solid was drop acid and see music.

Come back and see me in ten years and let me know if you remember the vibe at Merriweather Post in 2009 I believe it was.  :tte:

No.  I'm not trying to tell you how a drug works.  But thanks for getting your panties in a wad, and all defensive. 

I was sincerely asking if you don't remember what the vibe was like the wetlands when you walked in or most rooms, especially the first time you visited the room.  That's all.  And I'm not saying you should remember every moment either.  I think certain ones do stand out.  And with me, and this is just particular to me (so no need to get all high and fucking mighty like you just did), I tend to remember that more.  So that is all I was asking.  It was specific to you, and not a general conversation of how drugs work.

I remember reading something around the time of its release where Trey (?) had said, we picked this one because it has the coolest Carini ever... we don't know if the rest of the show is good, but we like the Carini.

Also, maybe it was that same article, I think I remember that they said they picked Camden because Fishman thought the Chalkdust was the greatest Phish jam ever.

And I agree, Alpine just didn't make much sense, even if you accept the Y2K bias on that first wave of releases.

Alpine 00 is the biggest head scratcher for me by far. I like 9/14/00 up until the end of Crosseyed then it falls off a cliff

Live Phish Ventura '98 is another WTF.

It's really a head scratcher because that show hasn't even been released.

I've always thought Darien '00 was a pretty good show -- better than many that fall, imo.

Reba, Carini, Suzy and Drowned are all great... set slouches a bit after that but a good show overall.  Really like the vibe of all those jams...

7/8/00 would be at the bottom of my Live Phish list as well, but I can see why they picked it.  It's as solid Phish show.  Not much meandering, searching or slop that was becoming more and more prevelant in 2000.  Piper/R&R/Tweezer combo are all real solid.

8/13/96 is another SOLID show, but they really should have released the next night instead.

I dunno I think the California Love Tweezer makes it worthy, and it also has the only jammed Horn as well as some classic banter in Guyute.

I'd say that Creek show is great in my book, the first set is perfection and Mike's gets out there.

Portland Moma Dance is also dope.

And agreed on the DC show... incredibly solid from top to bottom and the Mike's is an all-timer.

Love that Horn jam from Portland. Great show.  Birds, LxL, Tweezer & Free are all hot stuff too.

The 14th has the dream set list and is my second favorite show that tour. However, the Tweezer, DWD, Jim, while ripping type I's, have little in the way of visiting the outer rings of Uranus. Whereas the 13th is blastoff from the get go. And the second set might very well have the most evil and twisted of all Mike's Songs. Imagine the '96 Creek Mike's song with the NYE '95 'paug. Kaboom.

No way man, Alpine 00 is fucking sick.  That whole release, for me, is made worth it by the first 3 minutes of Piper.  Its THE perfect Piper build.  Dude, go pull it out, and put it on.  REALLY LOUD.  And listen to Mike. 

Its all about Mike.  The registers that he chooses to play the notes in, and when he switches to the lower notes..... ugh.  I just got goosebumps thinking about it.  The jam is pretty good, and I'm pretty sure Trey is teasing 3.0 Phish in the Tweezer jam :P 


Seriously though, I would buy the show again just to hear that Piper intro in SBD.

17 years ago yesterday was my phanniversary, and I walked there from where I was living at the time!  I was in complete and total awe of what was taking place on the stage this night.  At one point, the girl I went to the show with asked me if I was alright.  I literally stood there with my mouth open, not moving, not talking, for the first hour at least.  It is absolutely amazing to think of the impact this single event has had on my life.


Sunday, 10/22/1995
Assembly Hall, University of Illinois, Champaign, IL
Set 1: AC/DC Bag, My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own, The Sloth, Runaway Jim, Weigh > NICU, Fast Enough for You, It's Ice > Poor Heart > Sample in a Jar, I'm Blue, I'm Lonesome[1], Stash
Set 2: Golgi Apparatus, Possum -> Catapult, The Curtain > Tweezer -> Makisupa Policeman -> Big Black Furry Creature from Mars, Life on Mars?, Uncle Pen, Slave to the Traffic Light > Cavern
Encore: Sweet Adeline, The Squirming Coil

[1] Acoustic.

Notes: I'm Blue I'm Lonesome was performed acoustic and Stash was preceded by a Simpsons signal. During Adeline the band kept rotating the direction they were facing to sing to the entire crowd.

Hey birdman,

According to what you entered at Phish.net, today is the 20th anniversary of your first Phish show! To help you reminisce about the 20 long years since walking into Boston Garden in 1992, we invite you to visit http://phi.sh/921030 for the setlist and download links.

 Friday, 10/30/1992
Boston Garden, Boston, MA
Set 1: Runaway Jim, Maze, Bouncing Around the Room, Rift > Cavern > Vacuum Solo > Cavern, The Squirming Coil > Stash, Sweet Adeline, You Enjoy Myself
Notes: This show was a New Music concert sponsored by WBCN in Boston and included The Levelers, Material Issue, Michael Penn, The Spin Doctors, and a comedy troupe that was booed off stage before their time expired as the impatient crowd clamored for Phish. After Cavern, Trey said that it was his childhood dream to play for the Boston Bruins and this (performing at the Boston Garden) was as close as he would ever get. YEM was preceded by a Simpsons signal.

Long, Strange trip since that night

Quote
Sunday
11/12/1995
O'Connell Center, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL
Set 1: My Friend, My Friend, Llama, Bouncing Around the Room, Guelah Papyrus, Reba[1], I Didn't Know, Taste That Surrounds, If I Could, Split Open and Melt, Hello My Baby
Set 2: The Curtain > Tweezer > Keyboard Army, Sample in a Jar > Slave to the Traffic Light, Hold Your Head Up > Cracklin' Rosie > Hold Your Head Up, Possum[2] > Tweezer Reprise

[2] Simpsons signal and Dixie, Woody Woodpecker theme, and Johnny B. Goode teases.
Notes: Reba did not have the whistling ending. Possum contained a Simpsons signal as well as Dixie, Woody Woodpecker theme, and Johnny B. Goode teases.

It gets missed with Atlanta directly before, and Orlando directly after, but it is all Fall 1995 goodness.

Brother, wait till you pass two decades......then you'll feel old. Interestingly, the cute hippie chicks stay the same age.

On that note, during set break I usually play "spot the hottest chick in the venue" (as I'm generally having trouble composing sentences). Well, the third night of SPAC this summer, in front of BM, PG and myself, had to have been the hottest chick I have ever seen at a Phish show. Leather Indiana Jones hat, super long straight brown hair, what looked like jeans with chaps, upper arm shoulder tat, California tan. I was fucking mesmerized; virgin face but everything about her screamed bad, bad, girl. If I had had a camera, and naturally been able to operate one, I would not have shied away from asking her for a picture.

Hard to believe it's been 15 years!
My 3rd show, good Ohio friends, microdots and the most snow I'd ever seen in my life up to that point (which wasn't really that much).
I remember being shocked at how many people around me didn't know "the song after Wolfman's brother".   :-o  Although listening to the recordings now, you can tell the majority of the crowd picks up on it right away.
Also, I don't know why it never shows up in show notes, but there are unmistakable Boogie On teases from Page during the jam in Tube proper.

Also, I don't know why it never shows up in show notes, but there are unmistakable Boogie On teases from Page during the jam in Tube proper.

Set 1: AC/DC Bag -> Psycho Killer[1] -> Jesus Just Left Chicago[2], My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own > It's Ice -> Swept Away > Steep > It's Ice > Theme From the Bottom, Tube, Tube Jam -> Slave to the Traffic Light

Set 2: Timber (Jerry) > Wolfman's Brother -> Boogie On Reggae Woman > Reba[3], Guyute > Possum[4]

Encore: A Day in the Life

[1] Unfinished.
[2] Rocky Mountain Way tease.
[3] No whistling.
[4] "Charge!" teases.

Performers: Trey Anastasio, Page McConnell, Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon

Notes: Psycho Killer was unfinished. JJLC included a Rocky Mountain Way tease. The jam after Tube was basically a Tube Reprise without the lyrics. Boogie On Reggae Woman was played for the first time since September 13, 1988 (988 shows). Reba did not have the whistling ending. Possum included "Charge!" teases.

We did the 12/6 Saturday and 12/7 Sunday run from college.  The details are very fuzzy from 12/6, but I remember 12/7 like it was yesterday.  What a night!  The venue was a really sweet venue for Phish at the time.  It was way smaller than the Palace the night before.  And I'll never forget how it seemed as though every single person in that place was experiencing the exact same emotions as Phish blew our minds.  The energy created from the beginning of this first set was truly something special.

17 years ago today.

Was a junior in high school and drove from Portland, Maine.  Gave my first miracle ticket to some dude and it snowed about a foot when we were in the show. 

Great show.

The opening act was J. Willis Pratt & We're Bionic.

Soundcheck: Strange Design, Free

Set 2: The Curtain > Tweezer[1] -> Timber (Jerry) -> Tweezer -> Keyboard Army, Halley's Comet -> NICU -> Slave to the Traffic Light

Encore: Bold As Love

[1] Slipknot! tease in the jam into Timber.

Notes: The jam into Timber included a Slipknot! tease. Bold As Love was played for a fan up front with a sign requesting it. A humorous scene ensued when another fan got excited, as if Trey was referring to his Brother sign. Trey remarked that when fans bring signs, it has to be for a song the band wants to play. This show was officially released as Live Phish 01.

There was an opening band??? Hahahah. Lulz, I do not remember this AT ALL. And how the hell did you, of all people, make it inside of the venue in time. There were more than a few opening bands in the early years, yet similarly, I don't remember any of them either. Was just reading the posts on the Toronto 12/12/92 show that was just re-seeded at etree, and there was mention of Days of You opening, an early 90's Canadian jam band who I knew. But fucked if I remember them opening.

I went with my two best friends at the time and we decided to eat mushrooms. Being 17 year old assholes my one friend fed a stem to my other friend's dog while he wasn't in the room. Naturally the dog spit it back out so peanut butter did the trick. When we came back from the show, the dog was on its back with wild ass eyes and breathing deep. I remember my buddy yelling "what the fuck did you do to my dog?!?!" and then it decided to go fuck a pillow. At the time I only had a few bootleg and had no concept of Forbin's or half of the songs played really. Needless to say my mind was blown and the encore was unreal!!! Kinda weird though, I've never listened to this show since then.

Waited in line at Tower Records for tickets to the RI shows. My first shows as a non student and a parent. Epic shows all around.

I can't believe it was 10 years ago this week that a bunch of us did the NJ, Philly and Greensboro shows.  We had so much fun!

Monday, 02/24/2003
Continental Airlines Arena, East Rutherford, NJ

Set 1: Down with Disease, Corinna, Wolfman's Brother > Limb By Limb, Everyday I Have the Blues[1], The Thrill is Gone[1], Rock Me Baby[1]

Set 2: Halley's Comet > Harry Hood > Heavy Things, Twist, All of These Dreams, Waves > Sample in a Jar > Chalk Dust Torture

Encore: Farmhouse

[1] Phish debut; B.B. King.

Notes: The last three songs of the first set were Phish concert debuts that featured a guest appearance by B.B. King.

Tuesday, 02/25/2003
First Union Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA

Set 1: Julius, Talk, 46 Days, Taste, Frankie Says, Slave to the Traffic Light, Water in the Sky, Walls of the Cave

Set 2: AC/DC Bag, Cities, Theme From the Bottom[1] > Runaway Jim > Thunderhead > Sparkle, Pebbles and Marbles

Encore: The Squirming Coil > Character Zero

[1] Unfinished.

Notes: Talk was played for the first time since August 6, 1998 (167 shows). Theme was unfinished.

Saturday, 03/01/2003
Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, NC

Set 1: Chalk Dust Torture, The Moma Dance, Foam, Lawn Boy, Character Zero > Divided Sky, Mountains in the Mist, Waves > Sample in a Jar

Set 2: Rock and Roll > Wilson > Piper[1] > Also Sprach Zarathustra > Wolfman's Brother -> Boogie On Reggae Woman, Wading in the Velvet Sea > Run Like an Antelope, Carolina

Encore: First Tube > You Enjoy Myself[2] -> Proud Mary[3]

[1] A portion of the jam was based around the chords to Oye Como Va.
[2] Oye Como Va and Another One Bites the Dust teases. Daniel Saw the Stone tease in vocal jam.
[3] a cappella.

Notes: Instead of emerging from behind the piano with his own microphone for Lawn Boy, Page came front stage and used Trey’s microphone and stand. The move prompted a raucous response from the crowd. A portion of the Piper jam was based around the chords to Oye Como Va. Trey subsequently teased Oye Como Va, as well as Another One Bites the Dust, during YEM. Carolina was played for the first time since November 18, 1998 (144 shows). The YEM vocal jam included a Daniel Saw the Stone tease. Proud Mary was performed a cappella (including renderings of the musical breaks) to conclude the vocal jam. Only one other version of Proud Mary is known – a full-band version at the first ever Phish show on December 2, 1983 (1,361 shows).

Ah, the Greensboro show...

That was a night.

The stories never get old.

So let's hear 'em!

This is actually the abridged version.

Ok, so Igbo, RJ, his wife, her girlfriend and I lit out of RVA on the morning of the show in RJ's none too spacious vehicle. Igbo and I had made Jack and Coke Super Big Gulp road sodas and the poor girlfriend, being the smallest, was riding bitch between us. If any of you have spent any amount of time with the two of us together, you know this is not a seat of honor. The two of us are getting pretty blasted and clinking cups right in her face and generally being obnoxious. After pregaming at the hotel, we head for the venue and  it starts to rain as we get near, so the lot was dead as shit. We don't know if the venue even sells alcohol, so we slug some Jack and Mezcal and then head in. Well 20 minutes standing in line wasted fucking sucked and once we were inside we noticed that they indeed sold beer. Score! We sit behind the stage and after getting settled, the ladies head for the bathroom. They come back with fucking frozen margaritas...Where did you get those shits??? Oh, there's a frozen drink stand next to the bathroom. On it. Modi and I roll over to the drink stand and notice that there is a full bar right next to it. Fuck the frozen shit, Maker's on the rocks please. The lights go down and we get down. At setbreak, I run into a couple of friends and they had something, either mahl or chocos, I can't remember which, but whatever it was, I ate it. The second set was a blast from what I remember. I forgot to mention, there was a tittie bar right in front of the venue. Modi and I try to convince the crew to go to the club, but no one else was having it. Eh, just drop us off. No problem, have fun at soccer practice, you can walk home. Jonathan barely slowed down and we spilled out of his car. We get in the club and it is mostly locals with a few tables of dudes from the show. I proceed to spend a bunch of dough, got a $20 dollar lap dance for $13 bucks, almost get kicked out for feeling up the stripper, felt her up some more when the bouncer turned to walk away, almost get kicked out again, somehow we close the place down and try really hard to get a ride to the hotel from some strippers. A cab was called. Shit gets real blurry here but I remember running into my friends from home and grabbing the Mezcal and Jack and roaming the halls. We also came upon the indoor pool and sat on these lounges and watched a bunch of fucked up folks have a big massage train in the pool. Or they were doing something, I don't know. We were drinking from the bottles and it was hot as shit. Disgusting. There was also a king's bounty of snacks bought from the vending machines and lost change and I think we got yelled at by a hotel worker. And then a round of everyone's favorite fun game: punch each other in the nuts. Spoiler alert: no one won. You know what's hilarious at 4 in the morning in a dead quiet room? Opening bags of Fritos and attempting to eat them. Shit was the loudest thing I ever heard. Failing at all that, I woke up with fucking Fritos everywhere. Brunch looked delicious and was choked down with bouts of nausea. Boy, it was a quiet ride home, full of remorse and warranted judgments.

I can relate to the trying to eat quietly in a dark hotel room post show.

In Charleston '10 there was a Denny's in the parking lot of our hotel. In the middle of the parking lot. So obviously I got fuckin' country fried steak, eggs, and mashed potatoes with a shit ton of gravy. I was staying with qop and wife, they were asleep, and I rolled back and crushed that shit as quietly as possible, trying to not wake them up. I was fucked up. The plate was almost clean and, I kid you not, I was literally slurping the gravy off the plate, when qop wakes up and is all "dude, what the fuck are you doing".

All the stories you hear about me are true folks. I am a fat greasy bastard.

Greensboro 3/1/03 was a great time. Standout memory just now is the random pre-show party we wound up at, walking distance to the venue, where some guy who'd driven through the night from Nassau, wired up tight on blow, recognized my wife from a few years earlier in Burlington VT. She's really straight, he's a freak at the end of tour... epic awkwardness ensued.

I wasn't there, but 20 years ago today was one of the most epic shows of all time. The story goes something like this... the crowd was so quiet and attentive Trey decided to drop a Gamehendge on there laps.

Quote
Monday, 03/22/1993
Crest Theatre, Sacramento, CA

Soundcheck: Two Princes, Halley’s Comet, Weigh

Set 1: Chalk Dust Torture, Guelah Papyrus, Uncle Pen, Stash, Bouncing Around the Room, Rift, Weigh > Reba, Sparkle > David Bowie[1]

Set 2: Golgi Apparatus, It's Ice > The Lizards > Tela > Wilson > AC/DC Bag > Colonel Forbin's Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird > The Sloth > McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters, Mike's Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove[2]

Encore: Amazing Grace[3], Fire

[1] Simpsons, Oom Pa Pa, Random Note, and All Fall Down signals and Popeye theme and brief Split Open And Melt teases from Mike in intro.
[2] Sundown tease from Mike.
[3] Without microphones.

Notes: The Bowie intro contained Simpsons, Oom Pa Pa, Random Note, and All Fall Down signals and Mike teasing the Popeye theme and briefly Split Open And Melt. The second set included Gamehendge narration in between songs from It's Ice through McGrupp. This was the first Gamehendge since October 13, 1991 (193 shows). Weekapaug contained a Sundown tease from Mike. Amazing Grace was performed without microphones.

I only made it to the Providence portion of the Island Tour, but these shows were definitely hot!  One funny story from 4/4/98 was that somebody thought it was a good idea for my spun self to drive home until I tried driving up an off ramp.  Then somebody else took over.

you can't really ask for a better first show.
the 2nd set defines everything I love about music (even though it opened with Possum  :evil:).
everyone should give that set a listen tonight.

Now that's a doozy of a first slim.

Today marks the 14th anniversary of Oswego.  Had such good times at this fest, seems like a lifetime ago.

07/17/1999 (Sat) Oswego County Airport - Volney, NY
Set 1: Tube, Boogie on Reggae Woman, Birds of a Feather, Guelah Papyrus, My Sweet One, Roggae, Tweezer > Have Mercy*, Taste, Character Zero
Set 2: Funky Bitch**, On My Knees**, On My Knees Reprise***, Down With Disease, Wolfman's Brother > Sneaking Sally Through the Alley > Timber, You Enjoy Myself
E: The Squirming Coil, Tweezer Reprise
Comment: * - With Trey on keys.
** - With Son Seals (composer of Funky Bitch).
*** - Blues jam played as Son Seals left the stage.

07/18/1999 (Sun) Oswego County Airport - Volney, NY
Set 1: Punch You in the Eye, Farmhouse, Water in the Sky, Bathtub Gin, Get Back on the Train*, Call Me If You Need a Fool*, I'm Blue I'm Lonesome*, Beauty of My Dreams*, Moma Dance, Reba, Chalk Dust Torture
Set 2: Runaway Jim > Free, Meatstick**, Guyute, Axilla***, Llama
Set 3: My Soul, Piper# > Prince Caspian, Wilson > Catapult## > Icculus###, Mighty Quinn, Fluffhead,
E: Harry Hood
Comment: * - With the Del McCoury Band.  One of Del’s band members broke a
string and left the stage so a fiddle/banjo breakdown ensued during his absence.
** - With an explanation of the record by Trey, Sofi on stage dancing and with the Guinnes Book of World Records staff videotaping the event for verification yet on what the estimated attendance count was, much less a count of those dancing.  Though preliminary reports suggest the crowd may have exceeded 70,000, but that participation in the Meatstick Dance was weak.
*** - Axillas on this tour had been Axilla I but with the II ending, this performance was pure I, with no II ending.
# - With glowstick war and Trey on keys.
## - Catapult was followed by a tremendous amount of banter and toying, all continuing in the E chord from the end of Wilson, which was never finished.  Trey tells the audience to "read the fucking, helping, friendly book".  He they said “you won’t find it on MTV or at Barnes & Noble or Borders or Amazon or on the Internet… if you want to find out, you’ve got to read the fucking book".  He continued his banter with comparing ‘Smoke on the Water’ to ‘Cat Scratch Fever’ and demonstrated during the jam.
### - Followed by more narration and teases of the Rolling Stones ‘Miss You’.

:rockout:

yeah, wolftrap had no idea what hit them, lol.
what a kiler scene.

i had just moved to Vienna  a month before, about 2 miles away from the venue, so all my richmond friends came up.
Best part was i was the oldest, just turned 19, and was elected to carry the cooler in since they allowed beer to be brought in! :beerbang:
--dont think ive ever seen a venue do that since.
$15 for tix!
i was actually already pretty into Phish that year since Rift had just released that Spring i believe.
unfortunately i had passed on the 92 Floodzone show in richmond that coulda been my first. :|
but this one was pretty solid good 1st show and has the nice Leprechaun kick down (2nd time played?) i would later appreciate more.
pretty sure i ate a few boomers... but mostly just partied about with the VA crowd that had people i knew from everywhere.
good times. 8-)

15 yr anni of one of my all time favorite attended:

  Monday, 07/20/1998
Ventura County Fairgrounds, Ventura, CA

Soundcheck: Jam

Set 1: Bathtub Gin, Dirt > Poor Heart[1], Lawn Boy, My Sweet One, Birds of a Feather, Theme From the Bottom, Water in the Sky, The Moma Dance, Split Open and Melt

Set 2: Drowned -> Makisupa Policeman[2] > Maze, Sea and Sand, Prince Caspian > Harry Hood

Encore: Sexual Healing[3] > Hold Your Head Up, Halley's Comet

[1] Several false endings, including a Free Bird-style ending.
[2] Long, atypical jam.
[3] Phish debut.

Notes: Poor Heart featured several false endings, including a Free Bird-style ending. Makisupa included a long, atypical jam. Sea and Sand (first since NYE 1995, or 166 shows) was an appropriate choice, given the venue’s location near the beach. Sexual Healing made its Phish debut at this show with Fishman reading the lyrics off the back of a show poster. As delay loops built to end Halley’s Comet, the band left the stage one by one. The soundcheck's jam contained several quotes of Venus (Shocking Blue). This show was released as part of the Ventura box set.



just one of those shows that i cant put into words how perfect it was for me being there.
& i still probably listen to this show more than any other for the fact it has a flow and setlist that represents perfection for me.



"... we came outta the dessert... landed on the beach, seagulls and rolls, friends from the Northeast...
transient memories from the future and past.
sexual healing would come at last.
caspian soared, and maze befuddled. hood was on point and someone musta got puddled.
halleys funk sent us dancing into the night. :banana:
 & hitched a ride to long beach with some freaks i just met...
but that split open, drowned, and bathtub i would soon not forget."":mrgreen:

in light of last night's show it is important to mention that i've always regarded the 98 ventura version of CRapsian as my favorite.
i guess thats not saying all that much, but i really really dig the soaring jam with the sixteenth(?) note runs trey does... which pop up again in hood.
he was so jacked that night.

14 years ago I was stomping a mud puddle in the lawn of the Polaris Amphitheatre, during a crazy ass storm that led the band to jam the hell out of Ghost.

10 years ago they layed down my very favorite Sneakin' Sally as I tripped balls on a bag of boomers and clearly remember dancing from the top of the lawn down to the bottom and then back up. I will have to spin this Sally today.

Oh, and 2 years ago today I got married.

That storm that rolled in late night/early morning was amazing to witness from inside my buddies mini-van while still enjoying my trip! What was even better was that one of my buddies slept through that massive storm and woke up with his tent lying flat over him. I had watched the storm rip it out of the ground and flail it around with him anchoring it down. The look on his face when he climbed out of his wrecked tent was priceless.

It rolled through so quick, we didn't have time to get to our car, so we hunkered down in our tents, literally holding on to our tents so they didn't fly away or break.  I have vivd memories of the wind lifting up our shade tarp and then slamming it down, completely bending the poles in half and destroying them.  It was amazing to watch.  Our cooler went flying, we didn't know what to do!   :hereitisyousentimentalbastard  Afterwards, it was eerie.....quiet with people wondering where their stuff had ended up.  Once we got our own stuff back together, we went out and helped our neighbors.  It was crazy.

Thanks for bringing back the memories!  This one was also my second show. I was two months shy of 19 years old.  I remember everyone thinking this one raged, and Wolf Trap definitely had no idea what hit them.  It was like a hurricane rolled through that place, and the nice mellow venue staff were in shell shock.  I remember seeing multiple groups carrying in coolers so big that they had to be carried by their two strongest people.   It was a wild, one-of-a-kind scene for sure!

Cheers,

Similar thing for me.  I had gotten tix for all six nights to close out ye olde Boston Garden the day before.  We were euphoric, listened to  :syf: all fucking day.

Nice status about jerry from Tom Hamilton

Quote
My phone rang and woke me up. It was my girlfriend and she was crying.

I wasn't shocked or grief ridden like she was. He lived on his terms, followed his road, and it happened to have ended where it did. His voice was a part of my life since before my earliest memories. It was what it was, and it is what it is.

I was fortunate that I was finally allowed to go see them that year. I caught the last night of the Spectrum run (Unbroken) and the two nights at RFK with my older brother and his friends. It was so special to me. I felt something incredible and I carry it with me to this day.

It was never about drugs, or hippies, or jamming. It wasn't about avoiding the real world by following a band around, or memorizing stats like they were a baseball team. It was the songs. The guitar playing, and the voice. The message of love, culture, art, and a life worth living.

That, my friends, is why I do what I do.

I took a train to Montreal and a bus to Plattsburgh by myself for The Clifford Ball, which would be my 2nd and 3rd shows.  I was first few rows for 5 of the 6 sets (too tired for 3rd set on 8/17).

Ground-scored a huge bag of nugs before the shows, ate way too much paper after the show first night (great idea at the time) and thought the flatbed jam was some kind of weird hippie thing so I didn't want anything to do with it.

I was so stoked to get the FMs as soon as I got back to school 3 weeks later - it felt like right away.

It felt so hard core at the time to be 20 and travelling solo like that, but now that I look back I think I have fewer memories because I wasn't with a big crew...

20 years ago...
 i started up my bLue Aerostar minivan, left William & MAry after 2 weeks back at school, drove to Richmond, picked up my buds Jace and Omar- or Space and Slomar as they were known, and headed up with no tickets to Philly  for 3 nights @ the Spectrum with the Richmond caravan.
this run still stands out for me as the pinnacle of my Dead experience. epic times were had.

the lot scene was bumpin, per usual @ Philly.
not sure, but i think we got there a little late in the afternoon and tickets were scarce.
i recall there being a ticket validation table set up in the south lot  b/c of the ton of Fake's being circulated.
Pretty sure a couple of our Richmond crew got bunked and things werent looking very good for anyone.

come show time the ticketless hoards including my crew had moved over to the north entrance, and somehow we ended up conspiring with a bunch of kids that had conceived a very desperate plot to ensure noone would get shutout.
 it was pretty complex stuff  :wink:
--we'd all get in line like we had tickets and then the 1st person to hit the doors without a ticket would... push.

not sure how high i was, but all of my crew got in on the bumrush, though later i found out Space was too mellow and backed out.
Slomar and I were right up in the thick of things though. i remember being about 4 people back from the first ticketless bum and then the Extreme amount of pressure as the ploy went into action.
There were rows of glass doors on that main entrance to the SPectrum, and probably about 50 heads all at once tried to push through single doors with only one usher at each trying to stem the tide.
the Po Po were scramblin, but before they got in position the levee broke and hippies spilled onto the floor inside the building falling all over one another.
after regaining my breathe i did what any honorable head would do... i  got up and ran like a bat outta hell.
about 10 feet into my stride i saw dead ahead the largest black man in a police uniform i'd ever seen coming straight at me.
The outstretched palm of his hand literally knocked me off my feet and back onto the ground where the continuing flood of heads fell over me again.
a second time... i got up and saw daylight.
one mad adrenaline dash later and i was in the concourse crowd and free.

ducking into the stands i found somewhere to sit on some stairs next to a chick who i asked "what'd i miss?"
--"just Touch> Walkin"
-"sweet"
:pant pant:
--"i just busted in the show"
--"its my Birthday!" she said with a smile. :mrgreen:


...and we were off... :syf:

listened through set 1 and set 2 through drumz so far today.
one of my all time favorite attended shows without a doubt.

     This board is so crystal its one of the few dead shows i always end up turning up waaaay louder than any other show i listen to.
Generally considered one of the best post-Brent shows i think.   I personally believe this might be Vince's best show with the band, and Jerry was tuned in for the entire run, so...

    The first set is wonderful, and the tight jamming of the Let It Grow 1st set closer  hints at the  X-Factor fueled segue-fest to come.
Dark Star was a genuine surprise bundle of joy, perhaps in tribute to the large sign held up the 1st two nights with the year/month/day/hour since the last Philly Dark Star.
    Post space song selection this night was definitely the letdown of the entire run, but considering the preceding  heavy hitter  50+ minutes non stop  thru space that was such a rare occasion... well we just had something to look forward to the next night.

post show of the 2nd nite instead of headin back down 95 to our hotee we went down to the huge hotel megaplex with the Denny's in teh middle of it, right south of philly.
one of the best post show scenes ever, aka Sodom and Gomorrah.
coming down from our trips late night someone decided to cop a bag of china white  :shakehead:
 later in the room after those fateful 1st bumps i  sketched up the  setlists from the 1st 2 nites:

the final nite's list and doodle were added on the 15th apparently. :syf:

so, 3 for 3 in 93... not easy to come by in the Vince era, but ALL 3 shows were on point. It was all about Jerry being in a good space.

    by Tues night the 'tourist' crowd was long gone; tickets were basically free; and HELp>SLIP>FRANK was a Lock.
this night i definitely remember eating some of the best acid i ever had.
We parked in the 'park' parking lot on the west side of the Spectrum...
 i believe this was the day i grabbed a long sleeve, turquoise ribbed tie dye that became my best  friend... :-o

the show was bangin. i still have a good idea of how the Spectrum felt inside that night and it was wonderful.
Brokedown closed... and we all wondered out into the Philly lot tripping...tripping...
...the east side fenced in Nitrous lot seemed like an apocalyptic wasteland, and then the Gestapo moved in to clear the unwashed masses from the venue as quick as possible.
I wondered back to the Park and ended up on a swingset Peaking physically and spirtually,,,,up up up...

Spacce and Slomaar reappeared and as we gathered around the AEROSTAAR i asked: "OK, So who is Tripping the LEAST?"
it was me.  :-D

and into the night>>down I-95, ::TRIPPING ballz:: i drove.
As space and slomar fell around teh back of the minivan i played bootlegs to keep me awake, but whenever the music picked up i would speed and whenever it mellowed i would slow down... basically going between 5-105mph on the Jersey turnpike.
eventually i had to give it a rest and Demanded an exit!! :crazy:
unfortunately we somehow found one of those exits that didnt have a re-entrance to the freeway, lol
 :clap:

so... about 3am or so slim and friends ended up 'winging it' across the Jersey/PA countryside looking for the highway...

Jace cut me a breather eventually and got us back on the road to Richmond... by the time we passed FRED-burg i think we thought we had it in the bag and cut off for one final break at the last rest stop b4 Richmond about the time the sun was coming up.
Randomly a Richmond kid we knew was at the same stop and he just happned to have a nitrous tank that needed to be drained, so... we got spun one last time before heading back into reality...
but that wasnt the end for SL!m...


i dropped Space and Slomar back home and stopped by a friends apt in Rich. to crash for the night before heading back to Williamsburg.
the next morning my buds took off for work and i waked and baked with their roomate before heading out...

 so, obviously i was still Mega-spun from the shows and i remember being in super high spirits...
then somehow this dude i barely knew,  but was old friends with my good friends, told me he needed a 'ride out of town'  :?
from what i recall he told me something along the lines of there was a warrant out for his arrest and the cops would be snaggin him up from some 'drug-related' offense or whatever.
  Being completely on could nine/; ' i love everyone', etc, i was like: "dude, i'm headed out of town and i'll get you outta dodge no problemo"

cut to a few hours later and this person and me end up at my dorm room in williamsburg...
seriously at the time everything seemed KOSHER... i think we even hit a party of my friends up and perhaps that was when i discovered this dude's face was on the fucking news... ((been so long, details shady)), but once we were back at my place i think he started to feed me lies and tell me he was really being hunted by the FBI, but he Never told me why.
   eventually things started to get real tense and he gave me a bunch of acid and smoke before he was gonna take off... i flushed the L, and smoked the smoke :smoke:
\about that time some Federal NINJAS  busted down my door and through the windows, lol. :samurai:
dude had dashed into the closet  :roll:  but the jig was up.

i had no fucking idea wTF was going on... still spun from the Philly run by a mile, lol.
next day my buds call my from RIChmond and tell me they had been the ones to rat the dude out and direct them in my direction to find him...
apparently this guy had been a child molester for years and noone knew. it was a really fucking sad scene and i was apparently charged with aiding and abbeting a federal fugitive b/c this guy had done this horrible shit while biking cross country.
they let me off since i was clearly clueless and had basically just given this guy a ride without knowing anything he had done.

and that's how the story ends kids. :-) :syf:

I wasn't going to go because I was in college down in Champaign at the time.  I had a ton of fall 98 shows coming up, and I was trying to save money.  Phish tickets were $20-$25 at that time, and I actually didn't want to cough up the $25 for only 1 set of Phish.  That's how picky we could be in those days.  As the date drew nearer I realized there was no way Phish was going to be 2 hours away from me and I wasn't going to be there, so I ponied up the dough.  The New World Music Theatre totally blows for shows, but neither the Farm Aid crowd nor the World staff knew what hit them as Phish hit the stage.  Phish phans with lawn seats easily jumped down into the pavilion.  We took that place over for an hour and a half, and it was pure bliss. 

I've always loved watching guests interact with Phish and the Phish crowd.  It was great watching, what I interpreted to be, an extremely inebriated Neil Young rocking out with Phish.  Neil was having a blast, and at first he looked somewhat uninvited.  He just kind of appeared towards the end of Jim.  However, I'm sure Phish probably told him to do whatever he wanted.  Musically, it didn't work for me, but I enjoyed watching it take place.  The sing along with Willie was fun, and I remember walking out of that place fully satisfied.  Even if I recall thinking that Paul Schaffer was one of the biggest tools ever. 

A large part of this set was broadcast on CMT, the Country Music Channel.  We all freaked out at the opportunity to get a high quality professionally shot vid of a show were at.  I had my dad taping it at home for me, and I watched it the very next day.  I still have that VHS lying around somewhere...has it really been 15 years...

Saturday, 10/03/1998
New World Music Theatre, Tinley Park, IL
Set 1: Birds of a Feather, Farmhouse, The Moma Dance, Runaway Jim -> Arc[1] -> Down By the River[1], Moonlight in Vermont[2], Will the Circle Be Unbroken?[1] > Amazing Grace[3] > Uncloudy Day[1]
[1] Phish debut; Neil Young on guitar.
[2] Phish debut; Neil Young and Willie Nelson on guitar and Paul Schaffer on keyboards.
[3] Neil Young on guitar.

i always get nostalgic about phish in october...

14 years ago today I successfully completed a 6 show run without a drivers license.  previously to this i was always the guy making the plans and usually ended up driving.  this was a nice little break, but i still like making the plans and driving...

19 years ago tonight - the Maker with DMB. This was actually a great show. Still my only trip to Oak Mtn.

Quote
Ever since Phish started playing large venues they've gone without having opening acts in all but the rarest occasions. The Vermonters made a few exceptions in the mid '90s, most notably for the Dave Matthews Band in 1994 just before the DMB hit it big. Dave and his band opened a five shows for Phish in 1994, one of which took place 19 years ago tonight at Oak Mountain in Pelham, AL.

Phish played a pair of sets on that Saturday night in Alabama and when they returned for the encore, following a drum duet by Jon Fishman and Carter Beauford, all of the Dave Matthews Band came out for a debut cover of Daniel Lanois' "The Maker." Matthews handled vocals on the tune, which the Jerry Garcia Band, Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson have also covered over the years, with Anastasio providing falsetto backing vocals. The version of "The Maker" the bands laid down that night still stands as the only version in Phish history, though Anastasio performed the tune a few times as a member of Dave Matthews & Friends.

I listened to that yesterday and Trey's line in Harpua drove me nuts trying to remember what it was from (Where the Banshees live and they do live well)   I didn't have web access at the time.  Thanks for the reminder.  I just looked it up now and feel so much more at peace knowing that now.

I'm waiting for when this new band I really dig gets onto a similar roll....  I think they've got what it takes.  They just need to learn to really let go every show and throw down like its their first time performing the songs and last time ever playing together.  :P

Notes: Divided Sky contained an All Fall Down signal. Miscommunication within the student-run venue staff led to a premature signaling for the second set to end. Following an extended break to "discuss" the matter with staff, the band returned for an unusually long encore. Tweezer Reprise featured an atypical extended ending.

Did you go?

yes, my 4th show.
pretty much the show that sold me.
think it was the smallest venue i saw them at besides the Roseland show in '00.
very intimate, i remember being able to walk from one side to the other in a minute or two.
i also remember a large % of the crowd being UVA students and Phish virgins, but also  seemingly  a lot  them were dosed on the good L that was circulating. with a bunch of Gamehenge  played there were Def. a bunch of freaked out preppies, lol.

just finished listening through today, man i love this show, so many 'lil gems.

i thought it was interesting, still discussing the 10-27-94 show, after reading this snippet from  RJ's Hampton blog:
It’s easy to look back at Fall ’94 and complain that Phish isn’t playing thirty minute versions of “David Bowie” every night. The problem is that Phish didn’t do that every night when it was Fall ’94 and that came after many years of regular shows and rehearsals.

--that i was thinking something similar when looking at the timings for this Fall 94 show.
longest song was Divided Sky @ 16:15, the Tweezer was 12:14, and the DWD>adeline was 11:55.

funny how i could see someone bitching about those song lengths being too short if played in 3.0, but how they were absolute perfect lengths IMO for fall 94.

I agree to a point.
it is more about the quality of what they play, as opposed to the repeats and the length of jams.  the creativity is vastly different now.

I didn't really feel like anything was ripcorded this past weekend.  I remmeber thinking at hartford that the tweezer actually ended at the perfect time.  2001 was even a bit more extended than the typical 3.0 2001.

Right. The creativity was so dense in, say, 93-95 that they could do a lot inside of 12 minutes. 12/14/95 Halley's anyone?

It's fair to say that, as a very general rule of thumb, the longer the jam is, the more likely it is to contain unique, inventive playing. Hence why people clamor for long jams and are disappointed when they aren't longer. Also, there have been far too many instances of jams petering out or getting ripcorded when you know it could have kept going and gotten better.

But in fairness to the band, there have also been lots of examples in the 3.0 era of them packing a lot of ideas into shorter jams, and of not noodling around for minutes on end before getting to the good stuff.

On balance, though, given that their playing isn't as consistently fiery and punchy as it was 20 years ago, and given that they often tend to showcase an open, patient, expansive jamming style, jam lengths remain a decent proxy for potential quality in this era.

you guys are haters.  the 300th possum in 3.0, they changed drummers.  they didn't do that in fall of '94.

we're all agreeing I think.  just making different points.
the reason I liked 10/25 was them throwing in some non-standard 3.0 songs.  the jams weren't long, but I still liked the show a lot.

saw two shows on this date...

after a highly anticipated champaign show that i walked to the week before, i was left unfulfilled and wanting more.  we made the trip down to st. louis and were treated to this little gem...i loved this show...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcZAE1P0HSI

Friday, 11/15/1996 Kiel Center, St. Louis, MO
Set 1: Wilson > Divided Sky, Bouncing Around the Room, Character Zero, Punch You In the Eye > Prince Caspian, Ginseng Sullivan, Train Song, Chalk Dust Torture, Taste > Cavern
Set 2: Makisupa Policeman -> Maze, McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters > Split Open and Melt, The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday > Avenu Malkenu, My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own > Mike's Song, Sleeping Monkey > Mean Mr. Mustard[1] > Weekapaug Groove[2]
Encore: Funky Bitch[2]
[1] Phish debut.
[2] John Popper on harmonica.
Notes: Mimi Fishman addressed the crowd before the show and noted that the band was donating a portion of the proceeds from the show to charity. After Sleeping Monkey, Trey announced that the show was brought to you by the letter M (referencing all the second-set songs with “M”-titles) and the number 420. This show marked the Phish debut of Mean Mr. Mustard, complete with a John Popper (cloaked in a cape and hobbling with a cane to the roar of the audience) cameo as the “dirty old man.” Popper stayed on stage to lend his harmonica to a very short Weekapaug closer and Funky Bitch encore.


...and we did this one after cincinnati in '98.  it felt like a high school gym compared to the massive crown arena.  after the show, we drove all the way back home to champaign.  there wasn't much in the way of city lights on the drive, so the annual leonid meteor shower kept us going all night long.  i still remember it vividly...

20 years since i saw JGB in RIchmond Va @ the Richmond Coliseum.
it was the 1st time they let Jerry or the Dead play since banned after the 85 shows.
it was also the 2nd to last East coast JGB show played, with the Shinning Star Hampton show the next night.
Was a special time seeing Jerry in my home town, and Dixie Down was a treat. :syf:

15 years ago yesterday. I remember driving down to the show after work from sugarbush. Parked and ran thru some park to the spot I set with my sister the week before. Finally found her and she pushed what looked like a five strip in my mouth. It had purple swirls almost tie-dyed. Then we rushed in. Show was an inferno to say the least. Just fantastic. Top five for me.

I was living in the Fan and walked the lot for a little while with a friend. I remember cops sitting by for a while, just watching people set up their shops, then busting everybody all at once for license-less vending.

Had just flown back from Australia. Book ended the year with Island Tour, then Albany>Worcester. Tripping balls driving home after the third night, I destroyed one of my parent's cars (ask me about the story some day, my 16 year old sister was driving as I had no license having been living abroad, so I paid her to drive me and a buddy down to the shows).

Man....I think you guys need to revisit that steaming pile of 12-5-99 and give it a listen.....ya, fun was had but the music that night BLEW CHUNKS......sad to say, but this was my last show prior to Cypress....and this show was the reason I didn't go to Cypress.....sold my tix the next day.

Coventry > Rochester 99.......worst 2 shows Phish ever played.....just listen to it......I can't make it thru the 1st set.....

Post by: WhatstheUse? on December 06, 2013, 06:01:55 PM
There was only one Rochester show in fall 99 I believe...

It's surely not a good 1.0 show but I'd rank it far above a lot of 2.0 and 3.0 shows…. I know I wish I could have been there.

Jennifer Dances also sucks, but surely not the worst song they've written. Reminds me a lot of recent Trey material (Winterqueen, Summer of 89 etc.)


eta: Just threw on the 12/5/99 Twist.  Sounds pretty good to me… nothing special, but it sounds like old Phish.  There's a fluidity in Trey's playing that I really wish I could have witnessed. some weird flow happennin' in this show for sure though...

Set 2: Timber (Jerry), Wilson[1] > Gumbo, You Enjoy Myself[2], Lawn Boy, Slave to the Traffic Light > Crossroads, Sweet Adeline

Encore: Loving Cup
I know this show doesn't particularly stand out when measured up to the rest of December 1995, but it's probably my favorite attended show behind the Clifford Ball.  Maybe it was the hellish blizzard that afternoon and the fact that we actually made it to Albany alive.  Between the doppler Maze opener, the band's quirkiness shining through with the Beavis & Butthead Wilson, the Timber second set opener and obviously the YEM. I just had such a great time at this show.

Was going to post almost the exact same thing.  My favorite attended 2 set show.  I'm glad someone else still talks about the Doppler Maze opener.  That really helped the LSD kick in...

Walking out of the Knick after that show to find several feet of snow on the ground to play in was the icing on the cake.

That December '95 leg was a real winter tour. From what I remember, it snowed at nearly every show, from start to finish. Was really cold on most nights. Driving conditions from show to show were spastic.

I think it was you that I first heard refer to it as the Doppler Maze.  I always thought of it as the KGB Police Siren.

Do not wander on to that bus. It's still out there and on tour quite a bit. 12 Tribes is a brainwashed cult of freaks (though they do provide free first aid as needed, so they're not all bad).

I wandered onto the bus in '95, they kicked me off it pretty fast. That's got to say something when you're too weird for the 12 Tribes.

I always thought they were pretty harmless, just way out there. 
I used to find it interesting to watch them in their circles dancing around outside the bus.  They seemed so peaceful.  To each their own, I say.

I love it that SF was kicked off the bus.  :wtu:

I've been on the peacemaker before...want to say island tour 98. Had a long discussion/argument with
 of their members. The anthropologist in me was interested in what they had to say.Talked of family, culture, work, and spirituality. Actually pretty enlightening but my brain was too strong for them to erase

The only thing I took away from my encounters with them is this:

The world is full of fR34k5 who would like nothing more than for you to join them.....If I were a violent person, they would be my first targets....for sighting in, of course.........The sheep trying to convert wolves to sheep.....

I lost a good buddy to the bus back in 94.....I haven't heard from him since that fateful night he got on the bus in Buffalo.....rumor has it that he's still roaming around with em.

18 years ago tonight rocked CCCC in Portland ME.  kind of a rough show in that had stayed up all night the night before studying for an Anthropology Final then boogied on down I-95 with some friends to catch the show.  I was in/out of it after drinking, puffing pretty much the whole time.  I definitely remember more of set 1 then set 2.  I'm sure people around me were thinking I was on H or something because I literally couldn't stay awake.  Fishman was a machine.

LOL, no.  I had sworn off the stuff at shows at that point.  I believe they were just little bottle rockets or whatever, but you can hear a few pops during the hood that are def. not the typical balloon sounds.

Listen here: http://www.phishtracks.com/shows/1999-12-11

one of my favs too...spun hard and remember looking for my face after weekapaug

Same here, that weekend was awesome. We met Ginger Lynn that weekend. I remember the setbreak wave was unbelievable.

Yep.  The pre-show wave wasn't too shabby either.  People were freaking pumped to be there.  If you listen to the auds, the crowd loves the hood, and IIRC, people were lighting off fireworks inside when the lights went down.   


confirmation of how much neely dosed himself that night.

LOL, no.  I had sworn off the stuff at shows at that point.


i got nothing, yeah that show rules.

12/11/99 Spectrum FTW

One of my all-time favorite attended shows.  Crowd Energy was through the roof that night and the playing was equally good.

 :hereitisyousentimentalbastard Yeah, we saw her name on a billboard while driving into Philly and we all looked at each other and said " we are meeting that bitch tomorrow". So the next day, the four of us plus a lesbian friend went to the porn store she was at and paid 20 bucks each to get a picture taken with her topless. The lesbian chick actually got topless with her and they felt each other up for her picture. Unfortunately, my picture got ganked somehow during the weekend.

16 years ago today.  Bring in the DUDE.  12/13/97 was the only show I went to without having a ticket and ended up 2 rows up page side for face with my friend.  Also a wierd show cause there was an opening act, J Willis Pratt.  That was fairly horrendous, but the show was kick ass.

Hard to believe my first show was 16 years ago today. Almost half of my lifetime ago!!!!!! It was obviously not as hot as the rest of the '97 NYE run, but pretty damn solid for a warm up.

Let me just say this one time. I had tickets, a ride, and a free place to crash for this Roxy run and I did not go. I had only seen Phish twice at this point and didn't really think it was a big deal to miss a three night run in Atlanta. Big mistake!!

I also was in Texas and didn't do the run that included the Bomb Factory show. My other big regret.

That is all.

Roxy Theatre, Atlanta, GA

Set 1: Golgi Apparatus, Foam, The Sloth, Possum > Weigh > All Things Reconsidered, Divided Sky, The Horse[1] > Silent in the Morning > Fluffhead, Cavern

Set 2: Wilson[2] > Reba > Tweezer -> Walk Away -> Tweezer > Glide > Mike's Song[3] -> My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own[4] -> Mike's Song > I Am Hydrogen -> The Vibration of Life -> Kung -> I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove -> Have Mercy[4] -> Weekapaug Groove -> Rock and Roll All Nite Jam[5] -> Weekapaug Groove, Fast Enough for You > Big Ball Jam > Hold Your Head Up > Terrapin > Hold Your Head Up -> Harry Hood, Tweezer Reprise

Encore: Sleeping Monkey

[1] Trey on acoustic guitar.
[2] Simpsons signal.
[3] Minor lyric changes.
[4] Not played in its entirety.
[5] Chorus sung by Jay von Lehe.

Teases:
· Iron Man tease in Wilson
· Theme from Woody Woodpecker tease in Reba
· Low Rider and Straight Out the Sewer jams in Tweezer
· Tweezer tease in Glide
· Tweezer, Wilson, Reba, The Lizards, and Stash teases in Mike's Song
· Entrance of the Gladiators and NO2 teases in I Am Hydrogen
· Hold Your Head Up tease in Terrapin

Notes: The Horse featured Trey on acoustic guitar. This long version of Wilson included a Simpsons signal and, towards the end, a freakish jam that included an Iron Man tease from Mike. Reba included a tease of the theme from Woody Woodpecker. Tweezer had a Low Rider jam and Straight Out the Sewer quotes from Trey. Glide subsequently included Tweezer teases. Mike’s Song featured minor lyric changes, three different Tweezer teases, two different Wilson teases, and other teases of Reba, Lizards, and Stash. During Hydrogen before the Vibration of Life, Mike teased Entrance of the Gladiators. After Kung, Mike quoted NO2. The Rock and Roll All Nite jam was for fan Jay von Lehe, dressed as Kiss’ Gene Simmons, who the band brought on stage to sing the song’s chorus. Terrapin featured band intros and lots of chatter from Fish, prompting a hurry-up HYHU tease from Page. Fish also performed a lengthy vacuum solo during this tune. The HYHU outro segued into Hood as Fish and Trey switched places. Neither Have Mercy (first since Halloween, 1986, or 670 shows) nor MMGAMOIO were played in their entirety. Walk Away was played for the first time since November 2, 1991 (159 shows). This show was released as part of the Phish At The Roxy box set.

I got turned around on the highway by a state trooper.  In hindsight, I'm glad I didn't hike 10+ miles with gear to have the pleasure of attending. I caught the two Great Woods shows that week, and I was, and remain, content with that.

i dunno what it was about those shows, but almost everyone i know that went had some weird or sad story to go along with it.
Richfield was a really weird place for a dead show.
i remember the hotel we stayed in we were convinced was run by nazis, and then our entire crew was stuck  for the whole trip smoking a LP of  horrible swag we brought from home... and the dude whos LP it was only smoked blunts so by the time we got home i was sure i had lung cancer.... and then i cant exactly recall but there was some famous dude near us on Vince side by the stage where we were in the vip.
pretty sure it was either bill walton or al gore, lol, but for some reason i think it was some relevant politician for the time.

what weird trip for sure... pretty sure there was alot of rain... that'd explain the Bertha,  and we all got shut out night 1 except my home boy slOMAR that i talked about from the philly show gate busting incident the previous fall--- dude was the KING of getting in shows no matter what.

once we knew there wasnt going to be many tix that 1st night he fucking Bribed a yellow coat security dude for his coat and then just walked in the backstage door, lol--awesome.
-- then since the band had already took the stage he just started sneaking around and going in all the dressing rooms, no lie.
after the show he brought back a ton of random  momentos from Jerrys room including the sign with his name on it and some matches, smokes, guitar picks i think... or somethin :smoke:  :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

This was early '98.  I got a kick out of the rumors page...

In 1998, Phish will produce an album early in the year, which makes a spring tour unlikely.

There will be a Halloween show next year, most likely they won't cover an album though

Quote
Apparently Phish recently performed a (record setting) 24 hour jam at a friends home in Vermont. No tapes will be circulated for now. Fishman was quoted as saying, "We reached a level of musical Zen that we have never achieved before!".
Phish's Asst. Production Manager can confirm this event occured.

Quote
At the MSG shows, the curfew is 11:30 PM with a 5 minute grace period. When they had gone over this time on 12/30, they realized that they had already incurred an $11,000 extra charge for the next hour, hence the reason they played until 12:20 or so.

I  guess we're talking about the Island Tour, and man did that news come down at the last minute.

ha!  yeah, i remember crushing the onsale.  all 4 shows went onsale on the same morning and with my dad's help, i scored a pair for each of the 4 nights via the phone.  this was one of the only times i got tix via the phone.  boom!  it was meant to be.

That was a great night.
I remember seeing you in passing in the hallway pre-show(?).

I had an ear infection at those shows and felt like shit but it was so worth it.
I did  a weekend of shows with a massive ear infection. Spent most of the nights lying on lawn wishing I'd stayed
Home. Not much fun.

Must not have been Grateful Dead!

Our motel was one of the worst I've stayed in (aside from post Pittsburgh '95) and it was, like the venue, at no particular place other than the intersection of two big roads.
That was probably one of my more sober runs due to my illness. I didn't want to indulge too heavily for fear that it might make things (seem) worse.

yeah our hotel was super facist.
they had locked off floor that you had to be buzzed into- id never seen security like that for such a po dunk hotel in the early 90s.
and they had cameras everywhere so we were super paranoid.
Richfield was a notoriously conservative area where many many heads ended up serving long sentences from being busted at shows there.

and yeah, i def didnt have any good buzzes that run. im sure if the party favors had been better i might rank the shows much higher on my list of favs.
but once we got the tapes is really when i fell in love with the show i saw. i actually think i didnt enjoy the show all the much at the time.

Caught my first Dead show 20 years ago today.  To call it a life-altering experience would be a serious understatement.  :syf:

I have mostly been disappointed upon giving my attended Dead shows a re-listen.  This one so far is not bad.  In fact, it's much better than I was expecting.  I probably haven't listened to it more than twice, most recently probably 15 years ago...

nice bro.
one of my top show career regrets was not jumping in my friends car when half of our group headed to NY after Richfield instead of back to Richmond.


ps: its funny you said "life altering" ... sometimes im not sure if people really understand how serious we are when we say that about dead shows. :-D :syf:

Encore: A Day in the Life

Teases:
· Salt Peanuts tease in You Enjoy Myself

The announcement that Phish would play Bonnaroo, and on their reunion tour no less, was a bit of a surprise to me.

I kept holding out hope that, as Roo late-night acts are sometimes wont to do, Phish would blow past their scheduled end time and just play on and on, unrestrained by usual commercial venue rules and curfews. Alas, no.

I remember enjoying Stealing Time (first time live for me), DWD, Highway to Hell, and the YEM -> Wilson move that the crowd goaded the band into.

KDF was probably the set's most notable jam, except for most of that I was distracted by this incredibly fucked up chick who borrowed my cell phone in a very vain attempt to locate someone in her party. At one point I had to ask for my phone back and she proceeded to argue with me that it was actually hers. Thanks a lot, lady.

These two shows should get me nice and amp'd to see them back at the Mann again. Or lead to massive disappointment, you know, whatever.

 :-D  Good point.

However, like pieguy last fall in Woosta, I am going to exorcise those demons by attending a show there this summer.  Staying on topic, my return to the Mann will coincide with the 20th anniversary of my first show.

20 years ago today I witnessed the Run Like a Diseased Antelope! Only 13 at the time, but I knew that that was a special thing that happened there. Unlike the year prior at my first show where I was too young and naive to appreciate the Murat Gin as it happened.

The Reba isn't half bad either.

On second thought, I'm happy I made the decision. I also had Great Woods and Sugarbush ahead of me the following week, so that factored into it. First night Great Woods was another pcr3 lot disaster though...

20 years ago began my Summer '94 run-
- 2 nights at home @ RFk>> 3 nights @ Deer Creek >> 2 nights @ Soldier Field  (...Buckeye Lake)

The RFK shows were pretty low key but the one thing i remember was getting a single hit of some super paper, for i think the second night, and having one of my most intense trips. I remember sitting alone waaay up in the nose bleeds Phil side during drumz space and thinking the stage looked like a giant alien boom box or something... and then ending up on Shakedown post show hitting a balloon that caused everything to start spinning backwards in front of me until someone i knew snapped me out of it and I decided i needed to retrace my steps backwards to find my car.

I was there and had almost the exact same experience post-show. Weird.  :syf:

That was my second show of the Summer (following Highgate which was an all-around great experience).
It was also my third RFK show with a CR&S opener (91, 92 and this).

The next night had an Eyes that was, shall we say, disappointing.

That said, things overall were fun and there was some decent playing (along with some not so-decent playing). These shows marked the first time I had doubts about seeing as much Grateful Dead as I was seeing.

Yes it was. Super chill vibe at Wolf Trap. Lovely all grass lot. Bringing coolers and food into the show. You were still allowed to smoke out on the lawn at that time. Zero security. First and only time they will play there.

Got to Oswego with 25 cases of soda and 1 cooler. Sold everything within the first 3 hours, mostly to the staff/volunteers.

My friends still tease me about the sun burn I got that weekend.

I can't even describe what happened during the Piper.

16 years ago, Riverport Gin.

That is still my favorite opener I've ever seen.
i was shut out & it even sounded good from the Lot.  :mrgreen:


--meant to post yesterday as well-- day late, but 20 years ago was my last Dead show.  :syf:
buckeye lake, OH. 7-29-94.
 (-i was shut out of the Philly 'unbroken chain' show the next spring-which would be my last 'lot')

after hitting Rfk, deer creek, and chicago i headed back to noVa, and after a few shifts delivering pizza i had enough cash to take RJ's ticket to go with one of our friends back out to Ohio.
buckeye was one of the coolest, if not the coolest venues i ever went to. basically a bunch of cow fields for parking/ camping, and then a big hill with a stage at the bottom for the show. camping over night in the lot of a dead show was an awesome experience that ive never topped.
i had slept over night between shows on teh soldier field lot, but that was just b/c i passed out on the pavement . buckeye was legit all night party in the lot. its the closest i ever got to the awesomeness i always imagined a show like Veneta 72 had, venue wise that is.

i remember getting to the exit for the show and traffic being backed up for miles from the highway to the show.
after being stuck a few hours i finally decided to bail on teh car and walk to the show to meet a girl at will call i had been chillin with earlier in the tour... mind you pre cell phone days meeting up at a dead show could be quite the task.

when i left the car it was clear, hot summer day. i was wearing cut off shorts and a t shirt.
i made it to will call and pretty much camped out there til the show started.
sometime before the shows start the weather turned from 90 clear and sunny to about 40 or 50 with the biggest plains storm i think i'd ever seen just roll down over the fields. shit got super intense and i was freezing so i bought a trash bag from some entrepreneurial head for a dollar.
Kristen never showed, so i ended up into the show a few songs late. missed the Rain opener, but heard most everything.
overall not a great show playing wise, but the environment was still hella fun, especially with all the mud once the storm passed.
i remember passing my pipe around at one point and it got snagged by a security person who i then followed around for the rest of the show trying to get it back from him. eventually he caved and i think i got it back for a dollar, lol.

after partying all night in the lot i remember waking up with a cow outside my car window staring at me.
then there was a bunch of crazy mudslides people where trying to get cars and buses out of that was quite a scene.

My show-club post regarding the show that happened 21 years ago tonight... a fun read (for me anyway).

Warning: Long post filled with nostalgia ahead!!

So, this show was at Starwood Amphitheatre, which was a typical summer  shed (very similar to Lakewood or Walnut Creek) that is no longer there.  This was not on the main stage, though. They set up a temporary stage out where the concession stands and bathrooms all were... basically up at the top of the lawn. It was the same area where they put the second stage for the Lollapalooza shows that took place there.

They were scheduled to play the same place the following year but the show was moved to the main stage due to rain. That was pretty cool, too, actually. The pavilion was less than half full and 100% general admission. Definitely a show worth checking out for the “If I Could” with Alison Kraus.

On a personal note - I was in Nashville for summer school sessions at Vandy. I was taking a photography class to get my GPA up high enough to be allowed to stay in school. It was one of the best summers of my life. I went to this show with my big sister, my buddy Nate, and this girl I was hooking up with who ended up being my sister’s maid of honor for her first wedding. She had huge cans and introduced me to Koyannisqatsi.  :wtu:

This show was also my first experience with paper. I had 1 or 2 nights with boomers before, but never paper. It was intense. I remember almost every moment with complete clarity. I spent the entire second set dancing on a picnic table with a cute hippie girl I never saw again after that night. The picnic table was about 25 yards from the stage so I had a completely unobstructed view of the stage from 4 feet above the heads of the entire crowd.

Add to that, CK5 had just added the new “robotic” lights to the rig for the first time.  They debuted 2001 at the beginning of the tour and it served as a showcase for the new lights. In fact, Kuroda wouldn’t even use the new lights until the second set each night on this tour so that 2001 was this big intro to them. Everyone was talking about it on rec.music.phish, so I was expecting it... then the first show I saw that summer was at the Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville and it was the first show with no 2001 after 11 straight. Needless to say, my mind was immediately blown from the opening notes of Set 2.

All told - An EPCOT night in the life of young Pie-Guy. On to the review:




- set 1 / disc 1 -

01. Contact - OK, this story is sort of told in the show notes... here’s my version... before the show started, we were Fish side right next to this chain-link fence that separated the crowd from the makeshift “backstage” area. We see the band being driven to the stage on golf carts (I guess from the dressing rooms by the main stage). The first golf cart has Mike in the passenger seat with his bass in his hands. We see him and start cheering. He smiles and starts playing his bass... which is wireless, so everyone can hear it. However, If you weren’t right against this fence, there was no way you could see him, so most people had no clue what was happening. That’s why you hear Mike alone for a while on this recording before the rest of the band joins in... Trey then does the same thing when he pulls up. So you’ll hear the two of them for a minute until finally they are all onstage and playing Contact. Pretty cool.

02. Llama - Now the show starts “for real.” Solid rockin’ Llama.

03. Horn - I love this song - not much to report other than well-played version.

03. Uncle Pen - A Bill Monroe classic played very near where Monroe was living at the time... a tip of the hat, if you will. Played fast and furious with great solos from Mike and Page. Fantastic!

04. Stash - Jam starts out interesting - also, this is where I really started to realize things were happening in my brain and body. An early mini-peak for me at the show. I really got lost in this jam. It was the first time that had ever happened to me in any context. Intense memory just listening to it now. About 8 minutes in they lock into a pattern similar to the ALO version. Whew. So good. I miss Stashes like this one. It peaks brilliantly, then they take it down to almost nothing to end it. Wow. One of my favorite Stashes of all time.

05. Esther - pins and needles from that quiet Stash ending - people are listening. Great placement of Esther. Played exceptionally well by all four. A song that benefited tremendously from Page’s newly added baby grand.

06. Chalkdust Torture - short and rocking. Classic CDT

07. I Didn't Know - Madonna washboard solo - no vacuum. Fun!

08. Reba - They take the jam down to almost nothing right away. So quiet. Again, Page’s baby grand sounds amazing here. You can just tell he loves playing those little trills up high that would have sounded like crap on the old keyboard. After that quiet segment, they get right to the rocking - almost no build-up between the two. Still, a great Reba with great quiet section and a smoking final jam.

09. Cavern - Sounds like a set closer to me!

- set 2 /

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra > see my story above... this was my first time hearing this song (other than the Strauss version from 2001, obviously). The lights were incredible. The spaceship launched and off we went... and they drop right into...

02. Tweezer - This Tweezer is interesting. It is unrelenting. It rocks loud and proud until the very end when the “slow down” eases into Trey on acoustic - not as smooth a transition as the Mikes->Horse from 12/30/93, but still a pretty cool transition where he takes the theme he was playing on electric and continues it on acoustic.

03. The Horse > Silent in the Morning - Love Horse on acoustic guitar. Sounds so sweet.

04. Poor Heart - Lightning fast! So tight on these tunes back in 93. Page, especially, sounds great here!

05. Fluffhead - this song just bristled with energy back in the early 90’s, didn’t it? Sofa king great! Also, I love the acoustic outtro. This is the only time I saw Trey do that, I think. Can’t think of another show I was at where he did. And he eases right into...

06. My Friend - again, I think this is the only time I saw Trey do this on acoustic. Sounds fantastic. Actually, let me say that I think Trey’s acoustic guitar sounded better in 1993 than it ever did when he busted it out in later years. I don’t know what’s different about it, but it sounds great.

07. Golgi Apparatus - the first of three “set closers” in a row. As with everything in this show, tight tight tight!!

08. Squirming Coil - My first time hearing Coil with the baby grand. I was mesmerized by Page from my perch on the picnic table.

09. David Bowie - a typically intense Bowie to close out the set. Solid!!

- encore -

10. Walk Away - Hard to complain about a rock and roll song like this one!!

11. Amazing Grace - How sweet the sound. I gave that cute hippie girl a big hug and off I went into the night with my crew.



Obviously, this show is special to me. It’s one of the shows I point to when I try to figure out why I became so obsessed with Phish. It was one of those nights where nothing could have gone wrong no matter what. All the acoustic stuff is great. The Stash is extraordinary. The Reba, Tweezer, and Bowie are all top notch. The energy just never lets up.

A prime example of Phish in 1993. Solid A!

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra > see my story above... this was my first time hearing this song (other than the Strauss version from 2001, obviously). The lights were incredible. The spaceship launched and off we went... and they drop right into...

02. Tweezer - This Tweezer is interesting. It is unrelenting. It rocks loud and proud until the very end when the “slow down” eases into Trey on acoustic - not as smooth a transition as the Mikes->Horse from 12/30/93, but still a pretty cool transition where he takes the theme he was playing on electric and continues it on acoustic.

03. The Horse > Silent in the Morning - Love Horse on acoustic guitar. Sounds so sweet.

04. Poor Heart - Lightning fast! So tight on these tunes back in 93. Page, especially, sounds great here!

05. Fluffhead - this song just bristled with energy back in the early 90’s, didn’t it? Sofa king great! Also, I love the acoustic outtro. This is the only time I saw Trey do that, I think. Can’t think of another show I was at where he did. And he eases right into...

06. My Friend - again, I think this is the only time I saw Trey do this on acoustic. Sounds fantastic. Actually, let me say that I think Trey’s acoustic guitar sounded better in 1993 than it ever did when he busted it out in later years. I don’t know what’s different about it, but it sounds great.

07. Golgi Apparatus - the first of three “set closers” in a row. As with everything in this show, tight tight tight!!

08. Squirming Coil - My first time hearing Coil with the baby grand. I was mesmerized by Page from my perch on the picnic table.

09. David Bowie - a typically intense Bowie to close out the set. Solid!!

- encore -

10. Walk Away - Hard to complain about a rock and roll song like this one!!

11. Amazing Grace - How sweet the sound. I gave that cute hippie girl a big hug and off I went into the night with my crew.



Obviously, this show is special to me. It’s one of the shows I point to when I try to figure out why I became so obsessed with Phish. It was one of those nights where nothing could have gone wrong no matter what. All the acoustic stuff is great. The Stash is extraordinary. The Reba, Tweezer, and Bowie are all top notch. The energy just never lets up.

A prime example of Phish in 1993. Solid A!

aha!  i knew i heard this story before.

Ten years ago yesterday was the only time I ever went to a show with my girlfriend (now wife) and the only time I ever left early.

She had not partaken in the grass in about 4 years when she decided to have some brownie before the show.  Unfortunately, she liked the way it tasted and had 1.5 brownies instead of the 1/2 I recommended.  A couple of quotes from the night:

GF: These brownies are laced.
Me: Yup, with pot.
GF: No, there is something else.  I can feel it.
Me: Nope.  Hey Riff (GF's best friend who made the brownies)...did you lace the brownies?
Riff:  Uhh...yeah...with pot.
Me: So there you go.

GF (during 1st set): I TOTALLY get why people would want to go and experience this every night and drive all around chasing the band.  It's just doing nothing for me right now.  Like...NOTHING.

She tossed her proverbial cookies on my feet once they started up ASIHTOS, and I took her out to the treed area around Great Woods.  The Piper sounded good from out there, and she was much better sitting at a picnic table away from the fray.

Perhaps the best part of the night was that she and I had just moved in together a week before, and I didn't know the area at all and she was pretty out there.  It was an adventure finding home after the show...

Thanks for sharing pcr, my wife had a similar experience the last time she indulged in edibles.  She decided to feed her munchie cravings with more cookies.  I kept warning her but she would forget 5 minutes later and be digging into them again.  It was pretty funny to watch unfold but she said it was unpleasant after awhile.  That was in the Spring and she hasn't tried them since.  It's kind of too bad since she really enjoyed them the few times before.  Moderation is key with those.

Same story on my end. Her friend made them too tasty. Sadly, that was the sole time she has gotten high since we met. I ate 2 for the show... 8-)

I kinda feel like without the exact dosage, it's moot.  It's like people talking about just eating a ten strip instead of the mic amount.  Not to deter from the story, but not knowing if it was 100mg versus 400mg of THC, doesn't really add the factor of just how fucking hard your gf (now wife) was tripping face.  And I know lot purchased goods aren't going to be exact, nor do I expect most people who concoct edibles to do the math to know dosage.  So strong is a pretty variable term.

The tolerance and size of the person plays a part when dealing with THC levels in edibles as well.

And RJ, let's have it.

16 years ago today....

8-11-1998
Star Lake, PA

Set 1: Trench Town Rock > Julius, Wolfman's Brother -> Time Loves a Hero, Bittersweet Motel, Reba, The Sloth, Ginseng Sullivan, Fee > Maze, Sample in a Jar

Set 2: Runaway Jim, Meat > Limb By Limb, When the Circus Comes > Down with Disease

Encore: Wilson > Golgi Apparatus


My 25th show and 7th up to that point in the summer, good stuff.  Was late getting to the show for whatever reason and walked in during the intro to Trench Town Rock.  Loved the show then and now, one of the best summers of my life.  The cherry on top was my decent pavilion seat and the fact were still  heading to Vernon Downs and The Lemonwheel thereafter. To be 18 again!  I'd do many things to be able to experience that summer over again with my now 34 year old frame of mind.

Wow.  Hard to believe it's been 10 years.  I flew into Philly from Little Rock(I was down there for a year long job) after work and met a bunch of friends after that Camden show at the airport.  I was pretty bummed that I couldn't take the time from work to make it up in time for Camden.  Especially after seeing the setlist and hearing about the show, but was still pumped to be out of Arkansas for the first time in months and on my way to see Phish for a few days with friends.  The plan was that I was going to pick up the rental car, drive to the venue, pick up the group, and head up to Vermont.  I didn't have a credit card at this point in my life and was told that it would still be ok to rent a car.  FAIL.  So, getting in touch with everyone was damn near impossible after the show.  We all know what a cluster that can be.  Somehow, we managed to get the group together, they cabbed it over to the airport, and the one person in the group with a credit card rented the car.  We had paid for a mid-size car, but the guy at the counter offered us a Plymouth Aztec or a Chevy Blazer for no additional charge.  We all decided that we were def. going to take the free upgrade given the amount of stuff we had, the extra room would come in handy for the long drive.  But we also decided that none of us could see ourselves ever buying an Aztec, so when would we ever have the chance to drive one again?  At the time, we just thought it was nice to have the extra space, but this obviously proved to be massive given the clusterfuck we were driving into.  We drove through the night to get up there, which also ended up being a great decision because we missed a large portion of the traffic and made the cut by a long shot.  With that said, we still sat in traffic for 24 hours or so.  The person directing traffic told us to "drive as far as we possibly could and we'll figure it out later".  Fuck it, we floored it until we were stopped by the mud.  Because of this, we had plenty of space in the middle of this field to set up camp and were surrounded by beautiful mountains.   We partied so hard on the "ride" in, that we were exhausted for the first show.   What an interesting weekend.  There was so much emotion, anger, passion, etc. by everyone involved.  Band and fans alike.    I am still convinced that if there hadn't been a perfect storm that descended upon us that weekend, it would've been incredible.  Alot of things would've been very different.  The music probably still would've been rough, but Instead, well, everything was such a mess.     

ETA: I forgot this.  On my flight home, the pilot's chair was malfunctioning so we sat on the tarmac in Philly for about an hour and a half with no AC.  I felt really bad for the people sitting next to me on that plane.  I can only imagine how badly I stunk.     :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

i remember watching this webcast.  it was crappy and so was my monitor, but it worked and was pretty cutting edge at the time.  i bought a plane ticket to san francisco the next day...

Quote
Set 1: Walfredo, The Curtain With, Maze, Roggae, I Didn't Know[1], Mike's Song > Simple > Saw It Again, Esther[2] > Weekapaug Groove
Set 2: Timber (Jerry), AC/DC Bag, Colonel Forbin's Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird[3], Twist > Sand > A Day in the Life
Encore: Emotional Rescue
[1] Referenced Kid Rock's sidekick Joe C.
[2] Flubbed lyrics for the final verse, ending with Trey proclaiming: "She died. Dead."
[3] Narration referenced the band's upcoming hiatus.
Teases:
· San-Ho-Zay tease in Twist
Notes: Though the band came out in position for Walfredo, they were forced to pause due to technical difficulties. For the second show in a row, several breakouts dotted the setlist: Walfredo (first since February 22, 1997, or 248 shows), Esther (August 9, 1998, 146 shows), Forbin’s and Mockingbird (August 7, 1998, 148 shows), A Day in the Life (July 3, 1998, 170 shows), and Emotional Rescue (July 28, 1998, 155 shows). The Mockingbird narration referenced the band’s upcoming hiatus. I Didn’t Know included a reference to Kid Rock’s sidekick Joe C. Esther featured flubbed lyrics for the final verse, ending with Trey proclaiming: “She died. Dead.” As the band returned for the second set, the crowd serenaded Trey with Happy Birthday. Twist contained San-Ho-Zay teases from Trey. Emotional Rescue included a bizarre synchronized duel on-stage between Trey and Mike. This show was webcast live and subsequently released in its entirety as the band’s first full concert DVD, Live in Vegas.

I hosted a party at my parents house (even though I'd moved out a couple years before), brought the computer upstairs and connected it to the big stereo.

Being able to see wasn't as important as hearing the music, but I sort of remember seeing the band on my 4x3 monitor.

I seem to recall a pizza delivery guy coming in and staying for A Day In The Life.

20 years ago today I was at a family wedding on the Jersey shore, but this story is somewhat relevant to the thread if you follow along...

The only way my broke college ass could get down to NJ from Boston was to put together a series of hitched rides.  The first one was from Boston to Lehigh, then I had a ride from Lehigh to Philly, then I had a ride from Philly to my folks' place in south Jersey.  This all needed to happen on Friday 10/7 in order for me to go to my cousin's wedding early on 10/8 and not miss any classes.

So, my ride from Boston to Lehigh was from friends who were driving down for the tour opener.  As we got close to the school, we started joking about how soon after parking I'd be offered LSD.  It was funny because once we parked, I was basically going to book it from the car and the parking lot to a friend of a friend's dorm room in order to get on the next leg of my journey.  The window to be offered LSD was going to be about a minute or two before I was totally away from that scene.  I jokingly said 10 seconds, and everyone else made their guess.  So, we park, I open the door, and before I even set foot on the ground, I am offered hits.  A lot of laughs from my friends ensued.  I think it was 3 for $5 or 4 for $10.  I said fuck it, I'll buy some acid to have around when I want to trip.  Transaction done, I'm off on the next leg of the trip.

I finally get to my folks' place around midnight and it's just me, my brother, and his buddy.  We start drinking, I tell them the story, they laugh, after another beer or two, my brother basically says "we're taking the LSD right now".  OK.  So, we drop around 2am or so, knowing that my sister is coming to pick us up and drive us down the shore at 6:30 am.  The story ends with me and my brother tripping balls at the wedding, first time ever doing that around my parents.  My mom to this day is amazed that we held it together as well as we did that day.  Anyhow, that is the closest I got to a show on fall  :phish: tour that year.

I totally agree, though I have not listened to enough of that fall tour to speak knowledgably about it.

I have been meaning to relisten to this and post in jedi's fall 99 thread, but I only made it theough the first set before being distracted. Anyhow, listening back, I'm still amazed at that first set. It was ballsy to basically play all new stuff prior to the epic Stash. Thinking back, I remember being totally engaged by the new (to me) songs, which was like seeing a new band for the first time. It was exciting. I also fucking love the Roggae/Vultures combo, which we would see again the following summer in Hartford.

I'll spare you guys my story from the Knick that night.

That's a big ditto. I was Page side, lower bowl, and a friend of mine (may he RIP) turned to me and said, "I'm not so sure about what a Jibboo is, but that was a lot of fun to dance to". I also remember the evil red lights during Vultures.

I traded an extra for what looked like some dank nugs but they turned out to be that legal weed stuff.
Didn't work, but my schwag joints did.

Pretty solid show and kicked off a quick three night run for my then 17 yr old self.
Also, the furthest (8 hrs) I had travelled for the band at that point.

19 years ago...

-I'd been looking forward to this day for awhile.
-It was a little bit awkward.
-It was a little embarrassing.
-It was over in what seemed like no time.
-Once I did it, there was no going back.  I was somehow different afterwards.
-After it was over, I wanted to do it again and again as often as possible.

a couple days late, but worth mentioning-

one of my favorite attended shows.
great small venue and lysergic energy.
my 4th show and the first one that really got me hooked


  10/27/1994
University Hall, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA


Set 1: Wilson, Sparkle, Maze, Colonel Forbin's Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird -> The Vibration of Life -> Fly Famous Mockingbird > Divided Sky[1], The Horse > Silent in the Morning, Poor Heart, Cavern

Set 2: Julius, Ya Mar, Tweezer > Contact > Big Black Furry Creature from Mars, Down with Disease, Sweet Adeline

Encore: Slave to the Traffic Light -> Icculus, Tweezer Reprise[2]

[1] All Fall Down signal.
[2] Extended ending.

Notes: Divided Sky contained an All Fall Down signal. Miscommunication within the student-run venue staff led to a premature signaling for the second set to end. Following an extended break to "discuss" the matter with staff, the band returned for an unusually long encore. Tweezer Reprise featured an atypical extended ending.

Starting a 2 night stand at Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland.  The only phish shows that have been in walking distance from where I lived, a 10 min walk at the time.  Not only was that amazing but so was the weather.  Both days it was in the low 60s, which is obviously rediclulous for Maine in the Winter.  This lead to party time through out Portland, and throughout the lots!!!!  I remember having so much fun.  Both shows were fire, the Halley's and Bathtub Gin > Simple > Free on 12/7.  Even with a mid 2nd set Jennifer Dance, it doesn't matter that show is pure fire listening back.  Then on 12/8 we got another gem with a great Ya Mar, Piper, and a YEM with probably the best vocal jam I have ever witnessed.  Wow 15 years flies, but looking back I am so grateful to have caught those shows, especially since I wasn't able to make it to Big Cypress.  Lots of great listening to get to.

Two days ago was the anniversary of this one:

Saturday, 12/05/2009   
John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, VA

Set 1: AC/DC Bag > Chalk Dust Torture, Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, Divided Sky, Ya Mar[1], Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley, The Old Home Place > Cavern > Funky Bitch, David Bowie, The Wedge, Bold As Love

Set 2: Tweezer -> Light > Piper -> Free, Sweet Virginia, Harry Hood > Suzy Greenberg > Golgi Apparatus, Run Like an Antelope[1]

Encore: Loving Cup > Tweezer Reprise

[1] Alternate lyrics referencing a naked stage crasher.

The snow that kicked in during the drive up was a nice touch. Had a couple beers at a local brewpub beforehand and then enjoyed this solid tour closer. Light offered the top jam of the night, and the Naked Guy antics in Ya Mar and Antelope had the crowd lathered up. Even this Golgi is noteworthy for Mike's bass problems, which led to him singing the bass part's on Trey's request, and a make-up solo after the technical difficulties were over.

Starting a 2 night stand at Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland.  The only phish shows that have been in walking distance from where I lived, a 10 min walk at the time.  Not only was that amazing but so was the weather.  Both days it was in the low 60s, which is obviously rediclulous for Maine in the Winter.  This lead to party time through out Portland, and throughout the lots!!!!  I remember having so much fun.  Both shows were fire, the Halley's and Bathtub Gin > Simple > Free on 12/7.  Even with a mid 2nd set Jennifer Dance, it doesn't matter that show is pure fire listening back.  Then on 12/8 we got another gem with a great Ya Mar, Piper, and a YEM with probably the best vocal jam I have ever witnessed.  Wow 15 years flies, but looking back I am so grateful to have caught those shows, especially since I wasn't able to make it to Big Cypress.  Lots of great listening to get to.


One of the best 2 night runs I ever witnessed. Was riding the rail both nights, that place was tiny compared to my other Phish festy experiences.
I've probably mentioned this elsewhere on here but we were rolling at the front before the show started and one of the security guys starts flipping at us and was trying to grab the bag from us. I just drop it to the ground and kick it behind me, guy behind us does the same and the guy behind him. We thought, there goes our 1/4. So we rage the first set and are walking back during setbreak when a dude just comes up to us and says 'I believe this is yours' and hands us our bag of nugs. Such an awesome moment as we did not feel like searching for more.
The scene outside the CCCC was wild, I don't think I witnessed a single cop in the area. The weather was great, slept in the car the first night and wasn't cold at all.

Two days ago was the anniversary of this one:

Quote
Saturday, 12/05/2009   
John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, VA

Set 1: AC/DC Bag > Chalk Dust Torture, Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, Divided Sky, Ya Mar[1], Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley, The Old Home Place > Cavern > Funky Bitch, David Bowie, The Wedge, Bold As Love

Set 2: Tweezer -> Light > Piper -> Free, Sweet Virginia, Harry Hood > Suzy Greenberg > Golgi Apparatus, Run Like an Antelope[1]

Encore: Loving Cup > Tweezer Reprise

[1] Alternate lyrics referencing a naked stage crasher.

The snow that kicked in during the drive up was a nice touch. Had a couple beers at a local brewpub beforehand and then enjoyed this solid tour closer. Light offered the top jam of the night, and the Naked Guy antics in Ya Mar and Antelope had the crowd lathered up. Even this Golgi is noteworthy for Mike's bass problems, which led to him singing the bass part's on Trey's request, and a make-up solo after the technical difficulties were over.

One of the biggest paug gatherings ever occurred before this show.

i was in the first few rows of section 204.  phish side, close to the stage, off the floor.  a favorite spot of mine.  the show was sold out at like 11,000 people.  it was a small arena.  no behind the stage.  no 300 level.  it was way more intimate than the palace the night before.  i was blown away by the palace show.  but this show kicked its ass.  i loved this show!  from the opening note of the first set, band and crowd were one.  there was a ton of energy in the room and they brought the heat.  so tight.  so special. 

i sold an extra ticket outside the venue on the way in for $20.  if you could attend this show scotty, would you pay $20?  :-D

Funny thing is, even though I was in attendance for this show, I don't really remember it, with my only memories coming from having listened to the tapes many times. I think it has to do with being sandwiched by so many other WHOA! shows. Or I'm simply getting older.  :frustrated:

On this night in 1995, I concluded a 17 show run at Lake Acid. Unquestionably, the  2+ weeks were one of the highest points in my life. And on this particular night, everything in my universe was absolutely perfect. Could not have asked for anything more. Perfection. Sadly, with every passing year, I remember a little less from this run. As such, it is a bitter sweet anniversary.

I was thinking about 3/6 yesterday.  How it felt like just yesterday.  And how time flies.  And from Phish coming back how I met so many friends, and had so many unique experiences.  I met so many of you on 3/6/09.  I know I will never forget the feeling as Fluffhead started.  How it hit me, how it made me feel.  Watching the band and the 12,000 people in there sync up like some fucking cosmic orgasm at the opening notes of it.  Though I haven't always been a fan of what they do now, I am actually very grateful they came back, because of the overall positivism it brought to my life, and for the people it brought into my life.

Ditto. I've never felt so much energy/electricity/joy in a room as that moment.

It was incredibly special to be with some of my best friends and have my all-time favorite song (and sometimes nickname when I grow my fro out) be the first song I ever heard them play. I was in utter disbelief.

20 years ago today, I was driving to Philly with my gf and SLiM to try to get into the third night of  :syf: at the Spectrum. Igbo was there with a couple of our other friends and they had been trying (not too successfully, iirc) to get into the first two shows.
I didn't have a lot of money but I did have something to trade.

My dumbass gf forgot her shoes ("you woke me too early to leave") and was complaining that her feet hurt from walking around seeking a ticket. I left her sitting somewhere, found my ticket, and went in alone.

the other side of that story is how i got shut out of my last trip to a dead show.
what a crazy day/night that was.

i will never forget seeing a ton of old heads coming out of the Spectrum after the 1st set just totally faced upon the fact that they played chain and the world must be ending or something, heh.



speaking of girlfiends with shoe problems, does anyone here remember me and gina on further in 97?  :hereitisyousentimentalbastard
bitch lost her shoe while we were on the highway stuck in construction... yes, she lost her only shoe for tour on the way to the first show while playing around in traffic on 95, smh.
and knowing gina it turned into a whole fiasco for the rest of the run.
I think that was the tour that when we got home i threw spagetti all over the wall before i broke up with her,  :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

It's a high five, seemed to make sense at the time.

20 years ago tonight was the Mud Island Tweezer. What an insane show. Had a great night. It was my first taste of the "phamily" X that I would enjoy just about all summer long. Mud Island is a very cool venue, too. Loved everything about this show. Can't fucking believe that whole tour was twenty years ago! Fuck, I'm old!

Speaking of... Zzyzx had a regular column in the Surrender to the Flow tour rag called "Twenty Years Later" where he discussed the tour that happened twenty years earlier. Well, he stepped down from it and I wrote that column for this summer. Keep an eye out for it.

After reading your story again, I can't remember if I've told you how the Shakedown got its name -
Actually, it was Emmerich's [hand-me-down, family] station wagon that was the original Shakedown. His sister was a 'Head backNtheday - I think she went to a few of the early 80s Hampton shows, since they lived in VA Beach back then. Anyway, she put this sticker on one of the rear windows of their family car. For years, we didn't know exactly what it was. Once we got into  :syf: in middle school, one of us got the Shakedown Street album and "whoa!" look what we found on the back cover.
(https://www.squaredealonline.com/acc/39164.gif)
... So once we turned 16 and began driving old family station wagons, we called his car the ShakedownMobile. However, Jamey's handmedownstationwagon wound up seeing a lot more action - more epic nights, more people in & out of it,  :smoke:, booty action, etc. We even beat Emmerich's car in a race late one night when we pulled up next to him (across the double-yellow) and I yelled out my window that shit was on. After this race, and conceitedly deciding Jamey's car was cooler, we started calling Jamey's stationwagon The Shakedown. Mainly to piss Emmerich off with a gesture of bold-faced disrespect. I mean, Jamey's car didn't have any GD stickers on it. But we kept calling it that, and from that point on, Emmerich's car was just "Emmerich's car."

I had posted this on the 15th but obviously the wifi was not up to snuff and it didn't go through.

It was 20 years ago on June 15th that I walked onto shakedown street for the first time in my life at Highgate, VT, which opened such an unknown world of the Grateful Dead to me. My father took my brother and I cause he had an idea of the shitshow that would ensue. All I knew was the music, I hadn't read or learned anything about the scene that surrounded the band. Gotta say, even though I didn't partake in any of the debauchery at the time, that feeling and kinship took me by storm and I fell in love with this motley crew of heathens.

generally a crazy crazy day with a ton of the local heads present.
having Stan/diane's place 5 minutes from the venue was mint.

Let's just say, the rest is hstory.

I had a similar experience at my first show (7.12.89). We drove slowly around a turn to park the car (I had never heard of paying for parking, just to give you an idea of how naïve & unworldly I was). Like a  curtain being pulled back to reveal a vast circus already long in progress, the scene opened up to us all at once - first a couple seconds of the sound of an active lot, then the sudden vista of customized buses and campers. We didn't know the term "lot," and "Shakedown Street" was a nothing but a song/album title. I stood gobsmacked, not knowing what else to call ... it ... . We were almost afraid to set foot 'inside' - although a strict border would have been pretty hard to determine. There was a bit of nudging and you-go-first'ing, but once we got in there, the whole thing was one mindblower after another. We had read/heard a little bit about people actually going on tour, but those were suburban myths to us. To see it all in the flesh - everybody making art, selling art, hackey-sacking - brought unprecedented joy to our hearts. I called it "The Community" for a couple years. Everybody was energetic and super-stoked to see a show that night. I'd never been around so many people so looking forward to the same thing.
The irony is that those shows were the first time that RFK didn't allow overnight camping in the parking lot. So we couldn't comprehend the occasional complaints we overheard about TheMan cracking down on the scene. This was the free'est thing any of us had ever seen.

^ my first show.

Was in NY visiting my dad's side of the family at a family vacation out on Long Island. I had been talking with my cousin on and off about the Dead and Phish throughout the year (she started going to see phish in 99 and my parents mentioned it to me the summer before when they started seeing phish and grateful dead cds and music pop up around the house); she had sent me some tapes and CDs of shows. She told me I needed to go see them this summer as it was going to be their last summer as a band. She took me under her wing and brought me to this show from Westbury, NY out on Long Island where my grandparends lived at the time. I remember eating a handful of mushies in the lot and was blown away by the lot scene. I hadnt seen anything like that except a typical tailgate at sports games or Merrwieather (where I worked selling food at the time) but never for a jamband type show like GD or Phish. I dont remember much of the show was really surprised Jay z came out but I had just bought that Black Album that summer as well so I guess it made sense? haha. But I loved every minute of this show, just hearing the songs was exciting to me. I remember just being up in the top of the stands soaking everything in. Was a life changing experience to say the least.
Went to Camden later that summer with my friend and his dad. - Really really enjoyed that show

Twenty years ago I caught my first show. Still in pretty regular rotation for me today. Got it all cued up and ready to relive the day that completely changed the way I look at the world.

Also my first Show Club pick (http://week4paug.net/index.php?topic=18533.0) (remember Show Club?!?).

Quote
06/24/1995
The Mann Center for the Performing Arts, Philadelphia, PA

Set 1: Fee[1] > Rift, Spock's Brain, Julius, Glide, Mound, Stash, The Horse > Silent in the Morning, The Squirming Coil

Set 2: Also Sprach Zarathustra > Halley's Comet > David Bowie, Lifeboy, Suzy Greenberg, Harry Hood, Acoustic Army, Sweet Adeline, Golgi Apparatus

Encore: Bold As Love

[1] Trey sang verses through megaphone.

Teases:
· Lifeboy tease in Suzy Greenberg

Notes: Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. Suzy contained a Lifeboy tease from Trey. After Acoustic Army, Trey thanked the crowd for being so quiet. The band then proceeded to don surgical masks for Adeline. The masks were provided by a fan in the front – Trey thanked him for the “hats.” The encore was preceded by Random Note and Simpsons signals.

Comment: (1) Weir on acoustic. Hornsby played the entire show

I haven't been able to properly write about those two RFK shows. While not my final shows, RFK is special to me. I haven been listening to them for the past couple days and they have some solid playing and some sad blundering. I can still remember being blown away that Jerry gave us Black Muddy River, a song I'd thought was shelved forever and never to be played for me. I feel that Bruce pushed Jerry at these shows and the performances are stronger than a lot of the summer shows because of it.

The 6/25 show was worth it for the Shakedown (16min) alone. Also Jerry playing with Dylan while I was on the floor up front in the Phil Zone.

My first show was 20 years ago today.  :phish:

Set 1 festured the long awaited return of Camel Walk.
Set 2 got out there, but not as out there as some of the other Tweezers from Summer '95 (i.e. Mud Island or the Fleezer).
On the whole, an awesome first show, and one that I listen to often (especially since the AKG 391 recording surfaced - http://db.etree.org/shn/124108 - major thanks to Lenny for that digging that one up).  I haven't seen Ha Ha Ha since.

edit to add: http://bt.etree.org/details.php?id=580694

Sunday, 07/02/1995
Summer Stage at Sugarbush, North Fayston, VT

Set 1: Sample in a Jar > Divided Sky, Gumbo, The Curtain > Julius, Camel Walk, Reba[1], I Didn't Know, Rift, While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Set 2: Runaway Jim -> Makisupa Policeman -> Scent of a Mule, Tweezer -> Ha Ha Ha > Sleeping Monkey, Acoustic Army, Slave to the Traffic Light
Encore: Halley's Comet > Tweezer Reprise

[1] No whistling.

Notes: This was a benefit show for the King Street Youth Center. The band brought back Camel Walk, which hadn’t been played since February 24, 1989 (757 shows). Reba did not have the whistling ending and Trey announced during Makisupa that this was "4:20.... Day."

Phish 2000 was pretty good at creating a "wall of sound" screaming loops and guitar sound, which is on full display at this show... but you also get jams like the last 5 or 6 minutes of Mike's which is super ambient, lead by Mike and really heady.

Also caught 10-07-94 and 10-07-99, both of which contain a ton of songs.
Also, the Maze from '94 is insane!

from the book of face....a day late but can still reminisce

 "It was fifteen years ago today that Phish ended the longest era of being a band and took a hiatus. While it didn't have any Coventry-esque breakdowns (perhaps due to the fact that they were intentionally not calling it a final show, but just a break), it was an emotional night, especially when the lights came back on after the YEM encore - an appropriate end to that era - and the PA played Let It Be. It's not often that people remember the post show music, but that moment is imprinted in many people's memory forever."

I'll never understand why I attended 10/6/00 and not 10/7.

I guess I should just blame it on my girlfriend at the time. 

In any event, 10/7 is a great, great show and so consistent that you really can't point to much in the way of highlights, it's just front to back an outstanding performance and summation of 1.0.

I've always dug 10/7 although, like Hicks said, nothing really stands out. Just a solid Phish show.. Kinda like that Alpine Valley '00 Live Phish release.

Funny how Aug said this was the last time Phish sounded 'normal'. The difference between 1.0 and 2.0 is pretty... apparent. I wonder what they would've sounded like had they played through...

Also, it's interesting that 2.0 is lumped into its own "era" when it only lasted a year and a half! 3.0 has been 6 years strong already! Imagine if it had ended after summer 2010!!!

The triumphant Johnny B. Goode from NYE 95 and the My Generation from Halloween 95 both come to mind.

Double tweezer reprise is still by far my favorite 3.0 encore.
The energy was off the charts.
Also the Augusta Reba was tits.

I agree, the energy was off the charts for those first 2 but I was kind of annoyed by the end of the next night. I think I started for the exit when I heard the opening notes. 4 Tweeprises in 2 nights, kaman!

This - but then the two of us walked out during the Number Line that followed - but it's our song, so it's our prerogative!

I enjoyed the hell out of Camden '09. First Joy ever (WOO!) was fine, but I was disappointed when they started Bouncing cause I figured they'd just follow it with Reprise and call it a night. But when they went into Antelope the place went nuts. Haven't listened to it in I don't know how long, but it was a blast at the time.

Tweeprise is always amazing to me... this is the one from Austin that closed out set 2. It was the reprise for a Tweezer played three nights earlier at the Forum in LA.

i love raging tweezer reprise.  i might have heart attack if i saw them play it twice in a row in an encore.

the midwest has gotten some amazing encores...

10-31-95 insanity onstage
two sweet Sugar Blue encores in Chicago
7-11-00 was pretty hilarious
UIC 1 was pretty nuts

but the top three that stand out among the rest...

3.  6-18-09

2.  12-30-97

1.  7-24-99
