PHISH, SATURDAY 12/02/1995
NEW HAVEN VETERANS MEMORIAL COLISEUM
New Haven, CT
Soundcheck: Funky Bitch (half-speed)

SET 1: Prince Caspian, Runaway Jim, Mound > Guelah Papyrus, Reba[1], My Sweet One, Free, Taste That Surrounds, Bouncing Around the Room, Possum[2]

SET 2: Also Sprach Zarathustra > Maze > Simple -> Faht[3], Tweezer > A Day in the Life > Golgi Apparatus, The Squirming Coil, Tweezer Reprise

ENCORE: Bold As Love

[1] No whistling.
[2] All Fall Down signal.
[3] Fish on acoustic guitar.

Reba did not have the whistling ending and Possum included an All Fall Down signal. Faht featured Fish on acoustic guitar. Tweezer contained Take Me to the River teases and Squirming Coil contained a Carol of the Bells tease from Page.

a 240 mile drive and we're at our next stop.  i'm not super familiar with this show, so i'm looking forward to diving in this morning.  as i look at the attendance numbers, mar is totally right.  a lot of the venues are about the same size.  this place holds just over 10,000 people.  this night was sold out at $18-$22 tix.

don't forget this monster tweezer dsbd is on the FTA #14 from festival 8 - thanks again to khalpin for this awesome spreadsheet!

stoked to dig into this one again.  I'll prob just listen to the AUD all the way through on Relisten.  I was in the 10th row for this one.  One of the shittiest venues out there but it was my local arena growing up (I was 30 miles north of MSG and 30 miles south of this one) so I saw a buttload of shows and events there in 80s/90s.  This might have been the last time I was there.  Then they imploded it.

Had to after Phish rawked the foundations.
Probably my favorite "rage" Tweezer, so many fucking peaks in that version. Machine gun Trey in full effect. Really like that Reba as well. All around solid show.

Well, I just finished 12/1.  Scott is so dead on.  They just bash you over the head with their pace and their playing and just going right into the next song before you can get a breath.  It's fucking relentless.  I fucking love it.  This is fun.

Jesus Christ, dude.
You disgust me.

Does this mean I am more of a jaded vet than Paul? That's one of the first shows I was instructed to listen to as a kid. Was one of my go to shows for years when all I wanted to hear was Mike's and DWD.

PHISH, MONDAY 12/04/1995
MULLINS CENTER, UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS
Amherst, MA
SET 1: Julius, Gumbo, Divided Sky, Punch You in the Eye, Stash, My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own, Axilla (Part II), The Horse > Silent in the Morning, Hello My Baby, While My Guitar Gently Weeps

SET 2: Timber (Jerry The Mule) > Sparkle > Ya Mar, Run Like an Antelope, Billy Breathes, Cars Trucks Buses, You Enjoy Myself, Sample in a Jar > Frankenstein

ENCORE: Bouncing Around the Room, Rocky Top

i didn't like the day off.  i was ready for another show, so i relistened to the 12/1 dwd and the 12/2 tweezer.  then i stumbled upon the first 4 Faces albums.  needless to say, i'm ready for this one.
90 miles is all it took to get to settle in for the next 2 nights.  i'm not a huge fan of traveling in the northeast, but you can't argue with these show distances.  i assume these were big college shows?  any of you walk to them?  10,509 tickets sold out each night.  was Dick Vitale at these shows?

Red Rocks and UMASS '95 were the first time I witnessed the scene go AWOL, as phans took on the forces. Red Rocks had lots of naked people streaking through town, glass store fronts shattered, and general roving mobs looking for instigation. UMASS similarly spiraled out of control. I can't remember which night, but the night with the huge snowball fight triggered the overzealous campus police vs. wook battle. Lots of wanton vandalism ensued. Consequently, Phish were banned from both venues, returning 15 years later (2009 and 2010 respectively).

Thanks Anthrax for a wonderful idea.
It feels like a Phish advent calendar.

Listened to most of 12/2 yesterday.  Great show.  Not Top 5 of the month but even the bottom 5 of 12/95 slaughters almost all comers.  Might be the only Caspian opener I've ever seen, and even though it caught us off guard at the time (and we probably railed on it), it's a good early version.  You can tell they are hyped being back in New England for the first time in 3 months.

The 10/11/89 China > Rider is bananas, check it out.

I was at that show.  Will check it out.  Not sure I have heard it on replay.

It's wild. Day 29 from 30 Days of Dead 2020.

I want a report on my desk in the morning.

Holy cow!  That's amazing.  I've never heard anything like it.  So sick.  I listened to an audience.  Going to dig into the 30 Days of the Dead version now.  Wow!

95 is what ruined Tweezer for me....

Mud Island, Canandaigua, New Haven, and Binghamton.....after that, Tweezer just was never the same....

Well... I fell in love with Phish in the '97/'98 era. There are amazing Tweezers to be found there if you like that sound. 12/6/97 comes to mind...

Inside joke between a few of us here. It's a well known fact I hate Tweezer....except when it's played. Make room, I'm worse than Antelope Greg......
