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.)

    @snowbank: Whispering Pines website says it’s full

    Drove by Lee’s Campground in ’04 -pretty crazy scene (well, more like business-as-usual for PH camping 😉

    But Lee’s seems hip to PH madness (unlike another Saratoga Springs nearby campground that I stayed at in ’04, forgot the name).

    Not sure I’d try to show up without a reservation

  2. BTB Says:

    I have a SPAC pav for Saturday, I need a 7/3 Alpharetta

  3. HarryHood Says:

    @ BTB

    You wouldn’t happen to have an extra SPAC pav for Sat for this guy would ya? llfa

  4. Frankie Says:

    Last year they were sold out snowbank… i don’t know Lee’s Park but Whispering Pines is not that close to the venue… about a 15-20 minutes car ride…

  5. BTB Says:

    HH – I would, but I’m trying to get a 7/3 in exchange for it. If I have no luck then yeah, I’ll bump it your way for face.

    That being said, I need a 7/3!!!

    I have 7/1, 7/2, 7/4

    Bonnaroo building permanent main stage in time for June:


    Looks like they want to attract other events when not Rooing -wonder if that makes a PH fest possible in the future…

  7. Stupendous Says:

    thank god the day is almost over…(eastcoast) Its been a drag…

  8. BTB Says:

    Today sucked. Been starring at this stupid screen all day. No Miner post. 15,000+ more barrels of oil in the ocean.


  9. Stupendous Says:

    the bb wasnt hyped up at all…
    you would think there was a show or something…

  10. Matso Says:

    I just got tossed a big bag of shit to deal with from work (it’s evening here and I’m working at home remotely). Spinning 7.31.09 II to deal with this crappiness. Gordeaux is all over this set.

  11. El Duderino Says:

    Too much Lost talk today.

    Yeah it was a good show but it’s not like it’s Star Wars or something…

  12. Stupendous Says:

    Everybody at my work is pissed with the ending…
    I keep saying I couldve told them how it would end 6 yrs ago, they get pissy

  13. albert walker Says:

    I started season 1 of Lost this weekend

    On episode 3
    So far here is my no spoilers interpretation

    Hot chicks
    Lame Dudes
    Bad plots

    Let’s hope it gets better

  14. albert walker Says:

    except the hot chicks part

    that we could do for a couple more of

  15. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    Slow day on the PH side without a topic from Señor Miner.

    I bet Lost got in the way.

  17. Selector J Says:

    Don’t let it get to you Selector. Statements like that are meant to be enjoyed. The former half term governor of Alaska, Sarah Drill Baby Drill! Palin accusing someone of being cozy with the oil industry is a gift that keeps on giving.

    Yea, I guess you’re right. It’s definitely excellent fodder for the Comedy Central (Fake) News Hour. What freaks me out is that crap like that is playing to someone out there. Way more people than it should.

    @Col Joy
    (Colonel siting!)

    The federal gov’t, BP, and everyone else involved certainly seem a little over their head here. Sure, they should have had a better plan in place but it’s an unbelievably huge operation that’s nearly impossible to simulate ahead of time. I really think everyone is trying their damnedest but it’s just an unprecedented helluva problem. I also think that there’s no one trying harder to get this thing under control than BP. They’re just getting their collective ass kicked. I hope things start looking up and soon.

    That RR show will ease the pain a bit.
    Mmmm… Tweezer.

  18. Selector J Says:

    “What freaks me out is that crap like that is playing to someone out there.”

    Just want to clear up that the “crap like that” I’m referring to is the absurd Palin comments. Not the J-Stew + Dr. Stephen Colbert, DFA hour. Those guys are like my TV Xanax.

  19. serpent deflector Says:

    anybody have two 7/4 tix for me? im starting to get nervous, there aren’t many extras turning up for this show. let me know if you can help. jhodgsonp@yahoo.com

  20. Robear Says:

    colonel, you’ve got a spot in the van, whenever it’s on the road! this year, just looking like the Greek though, unless some west coast fall pans out.

  21. b23 Says:

    Hey — off the topic, I’m sure, but here you go:

    Did the Festival 8 soundcheck ever turn up in better quality than what was first floating around out there?

  22. butter Says:

    yea, i tried to start watching Lost…

    i guess its just not for me …got bored with it

  23. willowed Says:

    Jack Bauer owns Lost

  24. willowed Says:

    and that silly island

  25. Robear Says:

    willowed, jack’s pissed. and taking names.

    fest 8 video floating around somewhere……haven’t seen it.
