DOWNLOADS OF THE WEEKEND:
As we continue our virtual download tour of the Summer ’09 venues, right after Jones Beach comes Great Woods. A site of so many Phishy evenings throughout the years, few were more exciting then this two night stand in ’94. The first night featured the last performance of the Gamehendge saga. Entering the alternate reality via a dentist’s chair, we were off on the last full narration of Trey’s senior thesis right as the show began. With Phish unlikely to ever bust out the story again, this is a must have show for any collection.
I: Llama > N2O* > Lizards > Tela > Wilson > AC/DC Bag > Colonel Forbin’s Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird > The Sloth > McGrupp and the Watchful Hosemasters > The Divided Sky
II: Rift, Sample in a Jar, Reba > Y-Rushalayim Schel Zahav, It’s Ice, Stash, You Enjoy Myself > Frankenstein > You Enjoy Myself, Julius, Golgi Apparatus
E: Nellie Cane, Cavern
First set contained a complete “Gamehendge” narration. *The idea was being in a dentist’s chair, with the gas slowly putting you to sleep, and on your way to Gamehendge.
The band followed up the legendary first night with a second night filled with Phish anthems. Both sets were absolutely scorching, but set two was something special. Check it out. This is some great Phish.
I: Runaway Jim, Foam, Gumbo > Maze, Guelah Papyrus, Scent of a Mule, Down With Disease, The Horse > Silent in the Morning, Run Like an Antelope
II: 2001 > Split Open and Melt, Fluffhead, Poor Heart > Tweezer > Lifeboy > Sparkle, Big Ball Jam > Harry Hood, Suzy Greenberg

VIDEO OF THE WEEKEND:
“Divided Sky” 10.31.94 Glens Falls, NY
TICKET UPDATE: I guess Tickemaster hasn’t been cut out of things, because when you go to their scalping website, TicketsNow, the entire sumer tour is up with hundreds of tickets for sale. Who the heck knows at this point? Hey, it’s only $375 for an orchestra seat for The Fox and $431 for two to Asheville!
RUMOR MILL ’09: (Reminder: Rumors are things I hear that I do not know to be true. When I hear something I feel would be interesting to people, I post it. Nothing is confirmed until you read it on Phish.com)
For what it’s worth, this was posted by SOMEBODY on Phantasy Tour today. This is NOT me speaking:
“The same source that gave me the scoop about summer tour told me that there will be no dates in august, and no red rocks. he said that fall tour will start in early to mid-September on the west coast, possibly at the gorge and go until early October. thereafter, there will be a short break followed by east coast dates ending with Halloween at MSG. take it for what it’s worth, but the dude was spot on about the routing for summer tour. he said that big cypress is being discussed, but that the band is exploring some “new” options (i.e., other than MSG, Miami or BC).”Tags: 1994, Venues, Weekend Nuggets
