Weekend Nuggets: New Year’s Run ’94



When thinking of New Year’s Run ’94, people generally think of two things – The Providence Bowie on the 29th and Tropical Hot Dog Night on the 31st. While the odd numbered nights may have stolen history’s spotlight, the 28th and 30th are two shows that routinely get glossed over. Philly’s “Mike’s Groove” and, more specifically New York’s “Tweezer,”nights brought some of the most engaging music of the run, while “Reba” and “Stash”provided first set highlights, respectively. Enjoy the weekend, and best of luck with the rest of the ticket chase.

    Morning, all!

    garrett, I hear what you’re saying about Chris’s rig being ‘basic’, but it certainly isn’t standard fare…
    There’s actually some of the most impressive, technologically advanced and expensive lights currently on the market today in that rig.
    Phish actually lease the lights from a lighting company and CK actually gets first crack at all the newest, hippest shit and PH gives him free reign.
    He doesn’t really like the big screens in his set-up, he’s all about the total package that comes from full-on gorgeous lights alone, not relying on shining them on a screen like he used to in ’99-’00.

    He’s a magician and the more I pay attention, the more awed I am.

    My fave new effect is what I cal ‘waving seagrass’ which is actually a million little dots that he throws up and moves at varying speeds to create crazy motion in the crowd….ends up looking like we’re all ants running all over each other or, when slowed down, like waving sea grass….

    I’d love to see a more recent interview with him, I haven’t seen one in a while and I’ve become such a big fan of his through the years, going so far as to introduce myself in both Portland and MSG 2 at the board, just watching him work.
    He jumps to the music, slams the board in time…
    Knowing that whatever we see up there is a second off, knowing that he has to actually be one step ahead of the band at all times always blows my mind.
    He’s a genius and I’m glad we got ’em!

    Palmer, I hope you make it but if not, I’ll take ’em, you know that….

    Laterz y’all, enjoy the day!

  7. EL Duderino Says:

    refreshing the page is already starting to slow down.

  13. whole tour! Says:

    what do i do if i score good pavillion seats and my girl and her friend only score lawns?

    They assume they can tickets at the shows, but i know better.
    it seems like even if i get good pavs i will have to sit with them on the lawn.

    any advice?
    stub them down??

  14. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    pc and macbook lined up – deer creek 2 pavs (x2) and raleigh pavs (x2)

  15. bhizzle Says:

  16. EL Duderino Says:

    @ wholetour

    @ Marshall

  17. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

  18. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    you too, el dude

  19. EL Duderino Says:

    @ Marshall


    Besides the 4th of july it’s gonna be the better of the southeast run IMO!

  20. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    this is going to be funny working two computers side by side… i feel like i’m in the matrix

  21. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    logistics, dude, logistics

  22. whole tour! Says:

    lol thanks guys

    i’m gonna practice the “baby, you know i love you, but….” speech!

  23. pabalive Says:

    Oh the Wilson from 12/30/94, I remember this time well. It was the beginning of that God awful Wilson chant that Trey egged on. The foolish Hood chant was not far behind. Much like his encouragement of glowsticks, I think he regrets all of these developments. I really miss the eerie quality of the band singing the Wilson chant combined with an interesting build up to the song’s first verse.

  24. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    just ‘get lost’ when you go to buy a beer and come back during setbreak

  25. whole tour! Says:
