Weekend Nuggets: March ’92


This weekend we see the band a few weeks into a year in which they would rarely stop touring. Other than September, the band was on the road for some of every month, earning their stripes the old-fashioned way. These early portraits of Phish hitting their stride along the eastern seaboard go out as reader requests to Chuck D (and Flava.) Have a good weekend, folks!

Jam of the Weekend:

Bathtub Gin” 7.20.98 I

This high-key “Bathtub” opener foreshadowed the Riverport “Gin,” one of the jams of the summer, just a week later. Though due to the St. Louis gem, this Ventura “Gin” sometimes gets the short end of the stick. Recognize.

    just found out i get to see leo kottke and jerry douglas on april 17th at a place that holds less than 1000 people! i am so pumped

  2. Leo Weaver Says:

    @gus…that sounds awesome. I saw Leo here a few years ago in a small venue that used to be a church. I think it holds around 800 and was maybe 3/4 full. I was no more than 20′ from him. It was just him, a stool, a few guitars, and a whole bunch of great stories and great music. It was an amazing show. Enjoy!

    @Mr. C – priceless moment when your son took off on his own 2 wheeler

    thats the huge parenting payoff for all the hard work and hours put in

    my daughter still doesn’t ride a two wheeler, she was close last fall
    we’ll get it this spring

    she is quicker than most kids verbally and wit wise,
    recited her lines in her school play clearer and louder than most kids in her class

    but scared to climb high at the playground, bike ride and stuff like that

    great little golfer too, been doing it her whole life

    i passed on the compliments @Neemor and C to her,
    it meant a lot to her

    she sees her dad on here all the time and wants to be part of things I’m into

    we’re comin to your town
    we’ll help you party down

  7. kayatosh Says:

    i’m surprised no one mentioned the mike and trey’s synchronized beer swigging and leg crossing in the 92 interview vids. posted here. geek humor at its best.

    nice fatherly sentiments, mr.c and butter. put me in the parent camp. hard work, indeed. my guy’s still unsure about training wheels, so two wheelin seems like a distant horizon for us. cheers. peace

    Oh, and props to HenryTheToad. Really cool to have another younger head’ on here. I’m 15 myself. Glad you had a great time at Mike Gordon last night

  11. verno329 Says:

    I gave up on maintaining my audio list years ago after I got too lazy and then catch up became impossible. I’ve got 50+ cd books worth of a giant mix of audio cd’s, archived shn’s and flac, and video dvd’s. I don’t even want to think of how much I’ve spent on cd books alone.

    Click on my name now to view my horribly outdated dvd list with a tab for each band. The audio list is probably double this one.

  12. neemor Says:

    We should have a day where our kids post in our places!
    Bring Your Child to BlackBoard Day!
    That would produce some brilliant results, I’m sure…

    I was going to mention the two-wheeler incident.
    “Let go, dad. I got it.”
    Great line.
    One of those moments that produce a secret smile, for sure…

    Great end to the weekend.

    And now, animation domination.

  13. cal Says:

    Leo Kottke is the greatest. I got to meet him a few years ago. I’m glad he did all the drugs he did in his day. Such amazing stories to tell, in a way only he can tell them, and still plays guitar better than almost anyone in the world.

    You’ve got mail. (finally!)

    looking for the riverport gin on this site (still haven’t figured out the silver bullet for searching down a particular jotd etc) i hit some old posts.

    one was miner talking about the boise bag and gumbo he and a friend predicted over a blunt (east coast represent miner…nice.)

    there was another post…back around the announcement last year…i cruised the comments…and no matter how much of a prick Wax B was to become…he and Matso used to throw down some pretty heady (in the intellectual sense of the word…tho i guess nougats can be intellectual too) back-and-forth. i’d stumbled upon WB’s blog in the past too and while i’m not ashamed of my IQ, much of what that dude essay’d on was completely over my head. there was a time when Phish was really known to attract the nerd quotient…which made some sense…they didn’t exactly put the cookies on the lower shelf musicially…and i guess that’s good considering that we do have suffer some fools these days at shows with sometimes 20K+ other people around us…some of whom, as miner put it so eloquently a few pages back when singing the praises of Eurotour…are “douches”.

    im ok with that tho…i’ve had years of practice using douche repellant.

  20. halcyon Says:

    Mr. C….if you are on here again tonite, I really hope and wish you have a great time at the show tomorrow. I know you have some pre-show concerns, and hope that you can enter with no expectations and enjoy the show with your family and friends. For a couple of old gray hairs, Phil and Bob are playing real well. The rest of the guys are playing great too.

    Have a great night everyone.
