Back in those days, we always tried to be there 7 hours before so we could be one of the 4 loaders...I'd say I got into about half of my first 25 shows for free that way, carrying the lights in and hauling stuff out after the show (which depending on your state was sometimes a little tricky.)  I do know that after 4/21/91, the Hammond was falling off the truck ramp and I blocked it with my face.  Everyone said I saved the day, but I got a baseball on the side of my dome the next day....For reference, here is a cruddy copy of one of the vertical posters from '91.....They stopped using the big ones (like yours) in '90....Like I said, I usually rescued these off of phone poles or bulletin boards, so all of mine are mangled....The latter day ones (like this one) have the venue printed, the one's like yours were always hand written....
Classic story!! I love hearing about the old days.  I was a Late bloomer not seeing them until 95' when I was 22.  thanks again for the feedback too.  It helps so much to know a little about this.  I hope to someday find someone who actually went to this show.
Good Day, Every Day!

That's pretty cool, thanks for taking the time to get that all up.  It's all pretty standard stuff, most of the time a band puts in the things that they really want, but if your even a half-way decent promoter (which I like to think I was) you can negotiate with management and get them to meet you half-way on stuff.  As far as the boys went, on the tech portions, I would guess that they were pretty firm on what it was they were going to get.  As far as the food and drinks go, I've seen worse, but like I said, that was pretty standard.
"There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese."          -Bobby Finstock

Thanks for posting it, lifeboy! +k

thchad covered what was to be my comment but I feel like writing it anyway.


These riders can seem really demanding but, compared to many that I've seen this one isn't so bad. especially when you consider the fact that the entire sound & light section of the contract was optional and may be provided by the band. Additionally, they are usually written from a don't ask, don't get perspective. Different things are dropped or substituted for various reasons sometimes with approval/agreement of management, sometimes not.

I imagine plenty of them have modifications initialed by the signatories, too--just like your average lease.

have you guys seen phish's & oysterhead's riders on http://www.thesmokinggun.com/backstagetour/phish/phish1.html they actually seem less demanding than most bands...

i know of 2 other shows,both in nc...that aren't listed in the almanac or phish companion,i assume because no tapers were present...in the early 90's phish would play a college or frat house between tours...the owner of a bar in my college town had the check framed that he paid phish...$750 to get them to play his bar the attic in greenville,nc...they also played a show in sunset beach,nc that no tapes exist for...trey threw joints out to the crowd during stash...

i was kinda surprised w/ the detail of the rider for 1990...then again that's probably one of the reasons why phish has been so professional & succesful...

UPDATE : I have recently hooked my internet back up after a year without it.  Now that I'm back online I was going to research my Poster a little more and right away I find the setlist and even a little info about the show.  Nice Stuff !!

I'm curious about someone "supposedly" being shot.... (on the phish.com link description)
Trey actually is totally inspired with ideas up the ass
