Weekend Nuggets: The Heartland ’94

This weekend we feature two smoking shows from Summer ’94 from the Great Plains.  Kansas and Iowa, not Phish’s every day stops- so all the more reason to throw down.  The Kansas City second set ripped, containing a ’94 “Reba” to be reckoned with.  The Iowa show features a tripped out “Asse Festival” which segues into “Sweet Adeline” and then a Digital Delay jam before finishing “Guelah Papyrus.”  A “Split” punctuates the first set before a huge “Bowie” and a “YEM” anchor the second.

Winged music note=====

Jam of the Weekend:

Crosseyed and Painless” 1.1.00, Cypress

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

One of the most exciting jams from the all-night set.   Trey threads a melodic theme throughout the excursion that peaks with a fury.  Have a great weekend!

  2. BK Says:

    Never been to Carnegie Hall but I see the crowd leaving some nights, dressed to the nines. Any thoughts on appropriate dress for tonight? Someone who went to Baltimore maybe?

  3. whole tour! Says:

    tux or suit and tie.

  4. whole tour! Says:

  6. whole tour! Says:

    1.1.00 crosseyed
    the exact moment my entire phish experience peaked and came full circle.
    11.2.96 south florida crosseyed to cypress south florida crosseyed = full circle for me.
    the peak moment of all my moments.

  7. BK Says:

    Thanks for the suggestions, that’s what I was thinking too. Didn’t want to be the one hoodie in a sea of tuxes, or the one suit in a sea of wooks…

  8. Mdawg Says:


  9. Highway Bill Says:

    finalizing selection…….looks to be….sport jacket, khakis, button down, Jerry tie and my Simple OS sneakers.

  10. bl68300 Says:

Ill be wearin the vintage blue shirt w/the converse shoe untied in the middle and the saying, Whatever you do, take care of your shoes! and my patchwork shorts…think ill get kicked out? haha

  11. whole tour! Says:

    should be a great show.
    You’ll be getting an orchestrated ‘YEM’!!!

  12. whole tour! Says:

    or wear a patchwork suit.

  13. voopa Says:

    I like the tie-dye suit someone suggested a few weeks back…

  14. Highway Bill Says:

    ….it is going to be interesting.

  15. shpongleyez Says:

    patchwork suit. yes!

  16. BK Says:

    With so many beautiful composed pieces as fair game tonight, I’m sure the wardrobe issues will be forgotten pretty quickly. Just got really excited looking at the setlist from Baltimore….both what was played, and what was left for tonight.

    That said, I’m thinking cords and a button-down, possibly with the loudest tie buried in the back of my closet. Having to dress up all week tho, it sucks to have to think about this on a phishy Saturday!

  17. Jon Says:

    The KC show Miner posts here was the first show for my firends and I. I remember being absolutely stunned and disbelieving of what we had just seen. At the setlist, looking at each other slack-jawed and proclaiming how this was the best goddamn concert we had ever seen, and it was only halfway over. Good times indeed.

  18. Mitch Says:

    If I only knew where to pickup a patchwork suit before tonight…

    I’m rocking jeans and a button down.

  19. fat bastard Says:

    make the woman wear “burlap sack and pumps”

  20. fat bastard Says:

    there is a craft festival in chicago today and I just picked up the print from Fenway for 40 bucks. the one with a dog in a Boston hate in a baseball diamond with phish at the top. ten years from now i will tell people i was there!

  21. Jon Says:

    Set break, I mean, above.

  22. whole tour! Says:

    i’ve been hearing rumors about a possible waters/gilmour/mason reunion tour. Of course, it will never be the same without rick wright. I was really hoping to see a full on floyd reuinion tour, but then rick wright passed on. I guess i’ll have to wait till that great gig in the sky to see the core 4 again.

  23. Mitch Says:

    Does anyone know where to get a copy of the Mike show from Brooklyn?

    Also, can anyone find a setlist for Benevento opening? I’ve scoured and come up with nothing.

  24. JerryTimber Says:

    I saw Floyd @ the Hoosier Dome in 94. Until Big Cypress it was the best show I’d seen. It’s still 2nd.

  25. beepaphone Says:

    I don’t even think i’ve heard the term Hoosier Dome since ’94.
