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.

    happy co-opted pagan holiday, everyone!

  3. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Flarr and Cal- Wilco last night. I went in with very low expectations and walked away very impressed. I had this very folksy/ rockabilly expectation , and although there was some of that, there was so much more.

    Really impressed with the musicianship as well. The guitarist (niles?), although a freak on stage, can certainly shred. The drummer, oh man the drummer, i couldn’t keep my eyes off of him. The guy is an absolute beast, from my point of view the best musician in the band.
    What i really enjoyed the most was the way they ended a lot of songs and the way the sequed into songs. Very spacey , ambient jams that you could really get lost in. I was not expecting this at all, and it was a pleasant suprise. They had this extended ambient/techno type jam as they set up for the acoustic portion of the show. It was really good.
    A few things that bothered me: The almost nazi-like way the band is anti picture or video. At least 4 warnings and notices up everywhere. They were basically like- If someone snaps pictures or tries to videotape, we will walk off the stage. Get over yourselves! My wife and I sat in the balcony, which could have been mistaken for a morgue. No one dancing! And the music is pretty danceable IMO. In fairness, the peeps in the lower level seemed to be getting down.
    All in all, it was a really good show. I would definitely see them again.

  5. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    @butter, you have mail. I’m out for requisite Easter dinner duties. I’m bringing the Champagne so I know it won’t suck.

    Since that’s what Easter’s about, Champagne.

  6. Mr. Completely Says:

    “Ostara is a Germanic goddess of spring and fertility, and the name of her Anglo-Saxon equivalent, Eostre, was used to derive the term Easter by the Venerable Bede in the 8th century. Eostre is a lunar goddess, and her symbols include the egg and the rabbit, both of which are obvious fertility symbols. In addition, the egg represents the Cosmic Egg of Creation and the rabbit is symbolic of the moon (it used to be thought that an image of a hare could be seen in the full moon). Eostre’s festival was held on the first full moon on or next after the vernal equinox, so this fertility goddess lends her festival, her symbols and her name to the Christian celebration of the Resurrection.”


  7. ChefBradford Says:

    Mr Palmer, I’m glad you enjoyed the show. I love Wilco, although their last two albums have left me a bit unsatisfied. I’ve seen them once, had a blast, and was one of the few people moving at all

  8. Mr. Completely Says:

    everything under control down there, @Pham?


  9. Prince Nabby Says:

    I’m afraid I’m a bit behind on all my BB reading for the day. What is the current state of rumor wrt a Phish festival. I have heard headlining ALC perhaps; Limestone, perhaps; Indio in the Fall perhaps; and maybe-Telluride-can-just-count-as-a-festival-anyhow perhaps. Any fresher or more up to the moment buzz on the grapevine?

  10. butter Says:

    that about wraps up what i’ve heard Nabby

  11. dyda Says:

    page singing ‘bird song’ is equally nice.

    still on the lookout for lawns to both nights in atlanta…

  12. (Formally Known As) BrandonKayda Says:

    You guys think 3-sets for Telluride?

  13. dyda Says:

    are we still expecting radio city the weekend after jones beach or did that fall through?

  14. Robear Says:

    @ BK


  15. Prince Nabby Says:

    Okie doke. Thanks all!

  16. DocGanz Says:

    We got it pretty strong out here in San Diego. Pics on the wall were shaking and the windows were rattling. Just got an aftershock as well.

  17. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    not the gin eventhough my spelling sucked.

    damn shook water out of my pool

  18. (Formally Known As) BrandonKayda Says:

    3 songs I would really like to see stretched out in 2010:

    Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan
    A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing

  19. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    And Sparkle

  20. Mr.Miner Says:

    are we still expecting radio city the weekend after jones beach or did that fall through?

    ^ there has been more talk of limestone than radio city at this point, but to be honest, i dont see phish playing 2 festis in a 3 months period. hope they prove me wrong. Just seems logistically absurd….

  21. Mr.Miner Says:

    Ebeneezer- I have creek pavs for night 2 – 2 together.
    looking to trade for east coast pavs…got any?

  22. Prince Nabby Says:

    Ha Ha, NTM! Actually, there was an “extended” version of Undermind at Knoxville. Stealing Time, imho, is a Trey wank-vehicle and would probably not yield more for being extended than it does right now. ASIHTOS has some ambient potential, I guess. Again, Knoxville had an interested ASIHTOS>Waves with an ambient interlude. It was definitely one of the stronger shows of Summer I.

  23. Kaveh Says:

    Good evening everyone…I’m wondering if anyone has one (or two) Saturday Greek’s? I got my Firday’s worked out. Thanks!

  24. Prince Nabby Says:

    Miner, so ACL is “confirmed” then, or is this still wholly in the realm of the speculative?

  25. Mr.Miner Says:

    ASIHTOS has some ambient potential, I guess.

    ^ this has the potential to be the band’s next huge vehicle if they want it to…
