DOWNLOAD OF THE WEEKEND:
A lesser known show from the month of December ’95, this one from Cleveland rips. A double Beatles encore on the anniversary of John Lennon’s death, was the icing on the cake of a psychedelic roller coaster ride. The second set featured extended improv in the form of a set-dominating “Tweezer” with a “Kung” chant in the middle. Following what seemed to be a set ending Reprise, the band droppd into a thrashing Antelope to close. Check it.
I: Sample in a Jar, Poor Heart, Simple > Runaway Jim, Fluffhead, It’s Ice, Acoustic Army, Prince Caspian, Good Times Bad Times*

SUMMER ’09 RUMOR MILL:
A few new things have been thrown in my direction lately. Since Bonnaroo is in early June (11-14th), Phish may do one tour in June, around these dates, and a second tour in August. I have not heard anything about the length of either tour. Though I have been told they are going to hit all their classic amphitheatres, and not exclusively in multi-night format. Those six hour night-long drives may not be a thing of the past! The Red Rocks, Gorge, Shoreline, and Alpine stands that have been reported all seem to fit this format. I haven’t heard anything about the east coast yet, but you can predict those shows yourself.
This two-tour format would make sense in light of the second rumor I heard from a different source, that Red Rocks will be the four nights of 7.30 – 8.2 As always, stay tuned, and don’t believe anything until you see it on Phish.com!Tags: Weekend Nuggets
