Weekend Nuggets: Classic Spring ’92 SBDs


Fall '92 Poster

1992 Poster

Two of the most classic nuggets of any Phish collection, these shows need no introduction.  Along their phenomenal west coast run during April ’92 Phish churned out great show after great show, and these are two of the highlights.  Both taking place on California college campuses, these two have many old-school highlights.  Among these four great sets, be sure to check out the Anaconda “Mockingbird” and, of course the famous “Harry Hood” from Stanford.  Enjoy the crispy recordings as we enjoy the last weekend before tour starts up again!

  2. larry bird flu Says:

    i believe someone said it on here a few weeks back, youll be the envy of all those hippie girls at your school once they discover phish and youll be the old tour vet, showing em how its done lol.

  3. larry bird flu Says:

    @ mug deffinatley sounds like youve had a whirlwind day

  4. Mugician Says:

    Brandon, I’ve been floating on down the lazy river on your very same boat since fifth grade, and all I can tell you is to not over-think it, any of it, and that you should never second guess what your gut tells you. Don’t question your decisions just because other people are doing different things.

  5. Frankie Says:

    WOW man! That is such great news! A 4-day pass!!!! 🙂
    Ahahaha! I’m really happy for you! Have a blast buddy!!

    A 4-day run at Red Rocks as your first shows… that’s classic!

  6. quazi motto Says:

    don’t wory it will all come together and make more since eventually. just relax your doing fine……..

  7. Frankie Says:

    Haven’t read the girlfriend part before i posted… that sucks though… sorry…

  8. Prince Nabby Says:

    @Brandon — Just a few more thoughts, because it’s late, and I’m getting sleepy.

    Firstly, I think that college *is* pretty important (obviously) but there’s no rule book that says you have to start as soon as you graduate high school! Given how immature most of the college freshmen I teach are, I think there’s a lot to be said for delaying college for a year or two and trying other things. That way, if and when you do go to college, it will be because you want to, and it will show. You’ll get more out of every aspect of it, academically and socially. And I should know, because I flunked out of hight school and had to bust ass to get to college. Once I was there, I was so grateful that I put 110% into everything I did there. Why not tell your dad that you’ll willingly think about jobs and college if he’ll willingly give you enough time and space to think about them carefully, and see if you can split the difference.

    Secondly, there is no rule book that says you *have* to party, take drugs, or get laid. If you don’t want to do those things, then don’t! Doing things because everyone else is doing them even when you don’t want to is a sure fire recipe for disaster. Besdies, you’re not “wasting” time hanging around listening to music; you’re “spending” time. and – more to the point – you’re spending it in ways that make you feel comfortable and happy and that aren’t making anyone else unhappy. What’s not to like about that? Take it from older heads, you have to be true to yourself, not to what peer pressure tells you you ought to be doing.

    OK, time for me to hit the hay. Be well and be happy, y’all.

  9. Mugician Says:

    Frankie: Yeah, I mean… it’s kind of complicated (women in general, JEEZ) and it’s not a total bummer, it just hurts. She’s got some stuff she really needs to work out, and…. well. It’s a really really really really fucking long story.

  10. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    burroughs is the man, there are some great lectures by burroughs and ginsberg on the archive you should check out

  11. Frankie Says:

    I know what you mean, don’t worry…

    I believe everything happens for a reason even if it’s hard to understand it right away sometimes…

    Maybe the answer is in Red Rocks… 🙂

  12. Mugician Says:


    Yep. When I entered into the lotto for the second leg, I was certain I was going to see the boys (“hey, I DESERVE it!!!” is what I was saying), and then I won the tickets. I was certain I was meant to see them play… and then I had to give these tickets up (by the way, I’m still looking for someone to enjoy the Shoreline show with my ticket, I know you’re out there!), and I was pretty discouraged.

    But… now this. I was meant to discover, fall in love with, and finally groove out to The Phish live.

  13. BrandonKayda Says:

    Prince and Mugician:

    Thanks guys. That really put a lot of it in perspective.

    I know I end up overthinking things sometimes and I feel like I’m not doing things the way I’m “supposed” to be, and that really helped. I need to stop thinking I’m doing things wrong just because it is not the cliche thing that most other people my age do. I am fine.

    I will probably end up doing better than most of the other people my age anyways. I am taking school pretty seriously. I had honor roll all year with like a 3.5 average GPA. Most of the people I know that aren’t my friends are the kind of jock-ish assholes that try and act cool and impress people. Everybody that they think are they’re friends even think they are assholes. “Jesus thinks your a jerk”

    Fuck em’ all

    Mugician – I hope all things go well with your girlfriend breaking up. It probably sucks. Have a great fucking time at Red Rocks man, you deserve it.

  14. Mugician Says:

    Thanks brotha, take it easy. I think I need some sleep. What a freaking day!

  15. ThePigSong Says:

    I think part time work is a great thing at your age is a great thing. I started working when I was 13 and I think it was the best thing I could have done. Early jobs are always wish-washy but it taught be a whole lot about myself (not to mention the cash in my pocket). You write exceptionally well for a young guy and you seem to be well read, I think you have a prosperous future in any of the arts.
    ahhh I remember the days of self-reflection/realization so well. I had many ups and downs, high and sober. I wouldn’t change very much. I wouldn’t be myself it wasn’t for those days.

  16. BrandonKayda Says:

    As a matter of fact, I wrote some poetry analysis for school that a lot of the teachers thought a senior/college freshmen would write. I am good at wording things I guess. I am tempted to post it but don’t want to look like i’m gloating or something. I personally think it was very well written

  17. BrandonKayda Says:

    Oh, and I am considering getting a job at an italian resturaunt about half a mile away from my house. I think it will be good for me to make my own money, plus then I will have some experience as to work and how I feel about it.

    I’m sure that will work out fine.

  18. Mr. Completely Says:

    @mug – holy crap dude, revel in that – a huge fucking score on an otherwise shitty day, that’s very intense. an epic win! something in your karma is doing you right! celebrate and maybe buy a lottery ticket, or ask the prettiest girl you think would never go out with you on a date or something – see if you’re on a roll 😮

    @prince – great perspective in your posts today, very cool

  19. Sam Says:

    does anyone know how many tickets to festival 8 will be available?

  20. Leo Weaver Says:

    Morning guys…wasn’t around much yesterday so catching up on my morning cup of Phish Though with coffee ‘n nugs.

    @mugician…that’s awesome – sometimes things just work themselves out…serendipity is good, pass it along. who knows, maybe you’ll end up at that Shoreline show (or others) yet! Helluva memory/story for your first shows…and you haven’t even gone yet! Good stuff for sure…

    @Brandon…I’ll keep this quick, but my advice/comment is this – If you do something you truly love, you’ll never work a day in your life. Personally, I love what I do for a living…the only work involved (IMO) is dealing with the people and deadlines I have to deal with daily…that’s “how I make a living.” And re: your dad…just keep your head on straight and things will work themselves out. Your comments about your dad remind me in ways about mine…just remember, he wants you to be successful and to not have to pay the price of learning the hard way (but isn’t that the best way to learn?). Also don’t worry about all the assholes in school…sounds like you’re in the “college” mold, that’s where you’ll make your best friends (and won’t think much about the HS days)…it’s also where you can experiment with any of the mind/body-altering extra curriculars you’d like.

    @Sam…I think someone on here mentioned Coachella being around 50k, I could see the same applying considering same facilties, etc.

    And last, Mr. C…thanks for the dl’s…have been enjoying the LoM this morning. also snagged that Tony Allen (jakawara?) tune which me and the wife both really enjoyed…all his stuff similar?

    Y’all have a nice Sunday…

  21. Robear Says:

    Sheesh it’s hot in Nor Cal. The river is green, the fish can’t be happy. So much to do before lift off to Red Rocks. I love the countdown clock, Mr. Miner. It helps me keep my eyes on the prize.

  22. Walfredo Says:

    Extra Gorge tickets- hey my good friend who was supposed to be coming to the Gorge found out he can’t get the time off work… I have 2 extras for each night that were for him and his girlfriend.

    I live in Seattle- have the PTBM tix in hand- and will take face if anyone is interested for all or some of the tix- its 2 for each night that I have extra…

  23. Walfredo Says:

    oh- you can e-mail me at dtracy2001@yahoo.com if interested

  24. lot rat Says:

    I have a feeling tix are going to be given away at shoreline & gorge. Do your best to get rid of them before you head out there.

  25. Mugician Says:

    So Robear, you definitely don’t need my Gorge tickets anymore?

    If so: people, I have one ticket for each night of the Gorge. Face + Fees. $120. I’ll be at Red Rocks with them (because my original plan was to get miracled into RR).

    PS – anybody want to carpool to RR? I can be DD for three of the nights, I have a gig of my own on Friday.
