Weekend Nuggets: Pacific NW ’96


Portland '96

Since Phish has shied away from the Pacific Northwest this time around, here are a couple shows from ’96, when Phish was a nationally touring outfit. These shows were part of an extensive west coast run that concluded Fall ’96. (This Portland show may have been posted once, but now it will be in the permanent archives as well.)

    Apparently everyone’s busy today?
    Good stuff Miner.

    Getting excited now!

  2. Corey Says:

    As I’ve said before on here, 11.7.96 was something else!
    Front row center for that one, best “seat” I ever received. Everybody on here remember getting PHiSH tickets through their mail lottery?…now those were exciting times around the mailbox.

    I tried to get them to play Manteca, but they went with the other sign in the row and played Bike. Oh well…

    Thanks, Miner, for putting that adventurous piece of PHiSH music up here.

    Umpires in 11 year old little league games occasionally take themselves too seriously. A called strike three does not necessitate a heel pivot and double fist pump. Go dodgers 😉

  12. Gratefulcub Says:

    Dude, to summarize my last post on previous thread: embrace the linen!!

  13. bouncin fan Says:

    Beware of the Orchestre kaya

    All I’ve been able to listen to
    Shit is nasty

  14. kayatosh Says:

    This is why i have a short bias on the market, especially riskier asset classes:

    ” A called strike three does not necessitate a heel pivot and double fist pump.”

    when you’ve had a bottle of maddog and are umping your 4th consecutive intramural softball game of the night it does 🙂

    I used to get as Enriquo Palazo as possible in my heyday. granted it was with my own peer group and not 11 year olds but I can relate to the urge to ring em up.

  16. kayatosh Says:

    i’m psyched. prepped myself the other day with my only piece of that kind o music — fela kuti open and close and aphrodisiac. double album cd. i forgot how much i loved it. intricate/quirky and funky. so danceable.

    Stoney Case story:

    that Portland ’96 show is the the second I attended in ’96. The first was JazzFest.

    I ate so much irie food, that me and my crew fell asleep in our van, and missed the Portland show!

  18. kayatosh Says:

    this 4-3-98 lope with the reggae breakdown mid song is awesome.

  19. Corey Says:

    Sometimes it’s the subtle things…

    Page throwing in the Bathtub Gin lick back in at the 13:05-:11 mark.

    Great show to be heard.

  20. Robear Says:

    bouncin’ dub,

    got the afro beat to unzip proper.

    been spinning ORB, African Scream and now afrobeat for last three days.

    watched boise ’99 vid. trey was thinner than me. not good, cuz i’m a twig!

  21. Robear Says:

    seattle show looks worth a download…….

  22. bouncin fan Says:

    See kaya

    Under onamanomics I don’t fear housing

    They are just waiting for an excuse for across the board principle reduction

    Like I said I fear the slowing of the global growth story
    The long commodity and new sources off exports story

  23. kayatosh Says:

    great lope.

    I have limited experience with edibles. Haven’t had a proper edible over 10 years. Last one i can remember is a batch of brownies my buddy whipped up especially for the clifford ball. On friday 8/16/96 we trekked from dc to plattsburgh and proceeded to set up camp, right next to our car on the tarmac. We munched down the brownies, hit a few bowls, and nipped some fine scotch. A few songs into the first set we were all on our backs unable to move. We dubbed those brownies the Cleveland Browns b/c shortly after eating them it felt like the entire Cleveland Browns offensive line was siting on your chest.

    Not a huge carinin fan. commence stoning.

  24. JP Says:

    would love a 2 night stand at key arena – after a 3 nighter at GM place – and before a 2 nighter in pdx

    mike = you know you love the food in seattle, c’mon back phish

  25. bouncin fan Says:
