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.

  6. Robear Says:

    thx. C.

    “This way to Magic” me likes this.

  7. Mr.Miner Says:

    Not sure Phish would pull off 2 festis in such a short amount of time. Liimestone sounds great, but I also feel that that was then and this is now….i don’t know. We shall see. Not looking forward to the endless drive and traffic again…but hey, I’ll be there. Any JB tix floating around?

  8. butter Says:

    yea, the Austin, TX thing zzyzx has been talking about makes more sense if they pull off an east coast festi

    i’d like if they would just treat Indio as a venue and pull up in that piece for a 3 night run once in a while…..seems like most of the infrastructure is there……i’m just dreamin away over here

  9. beepaphone Says:

    @ robear…sorry about your Spartans.

    What exactly is this Austin TX thing?

  10. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    Hey all,
    I have 2 PTBM telluride passes to trade. There are all kinds of people willing to trade 2 ea night greeks, my catch is that I have Thursday, but need 3 Friday and Saturday Greeks, still for a total of 6. One guy on the exchange board has that, but I wanted to give priority to the BB if anyone can do something like this. I’ll post this a couple of times over the next few days.

    @butter, thought I saw that you got yours?

  11. Robear Says:

    austin city limits. trey band, right?

  12. halcyon Says:


    Past lineups have had something for everyone and more.

  13. ChefBradford Says:

    It’s still not on the ACL website

  14. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    Hey Tzara’s, sent you an email last night or this morning, I’d love to take your Thursday ticket.

  15. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    @Uncle Eb, I am banking on having that for you. If I do this trade with the guy on the exchange I will be heavy on Thursday. Even if I don’t though, I should still have one, and it’s got your name on it.

  16. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    Super sweet…without any tickets yet I’ve actually been considering just saying “Fuck it, I’m going on Dave tour…”

  17. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    Letterman is going on tour? 😉

  18. Robear Says:

    mmm, candy bars at the Greek 🙂

  19. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    Candy Bars indeed, you guys already know!!! I’m so pumped, just looking for Friday and Saturday Greeks, and a pavillion seat for each night at the Creek. My lady is also working on some posters, should be ready in a couple weeks….

    Jim Marshall, the photographer who captured some of rock & roll’s most unforgettable images including photos of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar at Monterey Pop and Johnny Cash flipping the bird at San Quentin, died in his sleep last night in New York. He was 74.

    After starting as a professional photographer in 1959, Marshall was given unparalleled access to rock’s biggest artists, including the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, the Who, Miles Davis and Ray Charles. He was the only photographer granted backstage access for the Beatles’ final full concert at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park in 1966 and he also shot the Rolling Stones on their historic 1972 tour.

    Marshall developed special bonds with the artists he covered and those relationships helped him capture some of his most vivid and iconic imagery. In one of his last interviews, a chat with Rolling Stone last October, Marshall summed up his rapport with rock stars best when talking about Joplin: “You could just call her at home and be like, ‘We have to take some pictures,’ and she’d say, ‘OK! Come over!’ She trusted me and knew I had her best interests at heart. I only wanted to make her look good.”

    Marshall was born in Chicago in 1936 and was raised in San Francisco. He purchased his first camera in high school and started documenting the artists and musicians in San Francisco’s burgeoning beat scene. After serving in the Air Force, Marshall returned home, where he had a chance encounter with John Coltrane: when Coltrane asked him for a lift, Marshall obliged and the jazz legend returned the favor by letting Marshall shoot nine rolls of film.

    Soon after, Marshall moved to New York and was hired by Atlantic and Columbia to shoot their artists at work in the studio, including Dylan and Charles. But it was when Marshall returned to the San Francisco in the late Sixties that he produced his most indelible work, taking hundreds of photographs of the Dead, Joplin, Jefferson Airplane and Santana. Marshall recalled one rare instance when he photographed an intensely intimate portrait of Grace Slick and Janis Joplin — supposed rivals at the time — at Slick’s home in 1967. “All that shit about them being the fighting queen bees of rock & roll was bullshit,” Marshall recalled. “They got along really well but they had never been photographed together.”

    Marshall continued to be prolific even late into his life. Most recently, he snapped portraits of everyone from John Mayer and Ben Harper to Lenny Kravitz and Velvet Revolver. He has published five books, including 2009’s collection Trust. Marshall, who had no children, was passionate about his work up until the end. “I have no kids,” he said. “My photographs are my children.”

    with the idea of telluride as festival -remember in 00 there was no summer fest and that 3 night stand was festival de facto…

    also – wondering about chances of an acoustic 3rd set on one or both of the nights announced maybe week or two before? That would be icing for sure but cool. I know bluegrass fest is legendary for the afterhours jams in town, I have to wonder about the chances of seeing phishys late night as well – maybe not trey, but mike and fish I could see out there.

  22. c0wfunk Says:

    (3 night deer creek stand)

    read and edit before send. duh.

  23. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    I know that Oswego has been officially deemed a festival (“Camp Oswego”?) given the festival count of F8, but the Summer Tour page of the schvice didn’t really pimp it as one.


    best version I could find.

    So. T-ride is almost as close to one as the two-day stop at “Oswego County Airport” was…

  24. halcyon Says:

    Listening to Phil and Friends from 4-16-99 … hearing Page sing Franklin’s is sweet to the ears on a Lazy Sunday afternoon

  25. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    The text listed on the Schvice for “Oswego County Airport” read as follows:

    [single day tickets are not being offered for this event – tickets include both days’ performances plus camping and parking] – general admission tix.

    Plus, it was right in the middle of summer tour, with stops the day before and two days after.

    I know it’s official (sort of retro-actively), but it gives credence to counting T-ride as one … maybe.
