    It feels like Summer and is reminding me of the weather around the Summer 2000 tour. https://phish.in/2000-06-28/chalk-dust-torture This opener set the scene for a fantastic 2-day romp at PNC. I love the section in the middle that has Trey's echo pedal droning on repeat as well as the Jonny B. Goode ripping at the end. Grade A type-1 Chalkdust

    No but once upon a time I almost drove 2 hours to do Phish trivia at Nectar's for some promotion they were having. I didn't end up going but am actually kind of glad. I think my responses could have been a little too specific. E.g.: Q: "This venue is known as being Phish's first regular gig" A: "Doolin's! Finbar's!!! Slade Hall! Hunt's!!"

    Yeah seriously. It's not like they haven't played there 16 times over the past 2.5 decades or anything. You'd think they'd get that detail right.

    Hahaha oh man, way over my head. Come to think of it, I feel like this was in one of the Halloween pamphlets back then, no?

    Where is the option for Summer '87 with Trey playing his Time guitar only? Or colors of lights played during the song? (e.g. Bowie/Coil Yellow, YEM/Slave Red, DwD Blue)

    http://phish.in/1992-04-18 SQUIRT GUN BREAK! PHISH, SATURDAY 04/18/1992 WILBUR FIELD, STANFORD UNIVERSITY Palo Alto, CA Soundcheck: Shaggy Dog, Jam SET 1: Wilson > Divided Sky, Guelah Papyrus, Poor Heart, Split Open and Melt, Esther > Possum[1], It's Ice > Sparkle, All Things Reconsidered, Run Like an Antelope SET 2: Glide > The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony > Suzy Greenberg, Rift, Manteca, Bathtub Gin, Manteca Reprise, The Lizards, Mound, Llama, The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday > Avenu Malkenu[2] > The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday, Dinner and a Movie, Harry Hood, Cold as Ice > Love You > Cold as Ice, Rocky Top ENCORE: Contact[3], Big Black Furry Creature from Mars[4] [1] Simpsons signal. [2] "Happy Passover" bass solo from Mike. [3] Cameron McKinney on ukulele (unmiced). [4] Cameron McKinney on ukulele (unmiced). McKinney also counted off the song. This was a free outdoor show at Stanford. Possum included a Simpsons signal and Antelope included Frère Jacques teases. Avenu Malkenu included a “Happy Passover” bass solo from Mike. Harry Hood contained a Linus and Lucy tease; this theme was briefly reprised at the beginning of Contact. The encore featured guest Cameron McKinney on ukulele (unmiced). McKinney, seven years old at the time, also had the honor of counting off BBFCFM. It should be noted that the infamous “squirt gun breaks” during this show are in reference to a security guard (named Gary Herman) cooling off the audience with a Super Soaker, and not the band shooting each other. Manteca was played for the first time since March 16, 1991 (132 shows).

  13. I don't remember writing this review...but I guess it was 6 years ago! 2012-01-17 11:26 PM, ATTACHED TO 1988-05-24 REVIEW BY SLAVEPHAN My recording of this show is limited to Whipping Post plus the hilarity that is set 3. This is an interesting listen and has a few elements that may be worth a once-over. The Whipping Post here is quite long (20+) which was typical for the time. However, the wild jamming that the band had been doing in '87 and '88 seemed to be beginning to coalesce every once in a while, and there are some parts of Whipping Post here that are in that direction. Particularly, there is a moment when the band drops down and Trey is playing with a fader pedal (eerily similar to when he does it in the 3/13/93 Antelope), and another moment where Fish leaves some space and things turn a corner. It's much more focused than some earlier Whipping Post's (although for 80's Phish, that's not saying that much). By far, though, the Jah Roy guest spot in Ya Mar is the high point of this show. Who is Jah Roy? He's a player in a (still existing, apparently) Vermont Reggae band called Lamb's Bread. I imagine that they shared venues with Phish in the early years and so Jah Roy made a few guest appearances (see 10/31/86) and this is one of them. Toward the end of Ya Mar, the band gets into the reggae beat that they had previously been playing in Makisupa (for instance, see 8/21/87 Mouse House) and Jah Roy comes out of nowhere to start singning. He sings about all sorts of things and Phish, he breaks the song to scream out "How is everybody feeling!" (a la 8/13/93), then tells the band to 'break it break it'. It really ruins the flow of things and he tries to get the band to calm down and teach them about the elements of reggae, he rambles about Nectar's, 'business', breaks into 'One Love', and drum and bass as the foundation. It's pretty amazing, really, and I wonder what the band was thinking. I also wonder if Trey made fun of this hilarious ramble when he yelled "Bass and drum bass and drum" during future YEMs. Nancy makes an appearance for Halley's Comet in this one too. His screeching/singing is particularly atonal in this one, especially at the end, but the band picks up and moves into a Sloth (still missing the building section). Fishman's introduced here as Moses Heaps, Dewitt, and Brown as per the time. The Corinna here is a nice break after the slightly wild 'I Know a Little'/BBFCFM combo. Harpua is dedicated to Tim Rogers and is one of the better examples of the 'standard' story. Great Antelope to close for the time with a fantastic last 5 minutes or so. It is absolutely fantastic tension and release with a DEG-element. Although there's no glistening Trey at the end, this is a very solid Antelope, especially for 1988. Good stuff. Overall, this section is a 3+, special guests, some nice 3rd set playing, and a beautiful early Antelope.
