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.)

  2. Selector J Says:

    El Dude:

    Check it

  3. waiting in pdx Says:

    Minor was speculating that there will be a big west coast run this fall. what are people’s magic 8 balls saying about a fall tour Portland show?

  4. SillyWilly Says:

    Lull on the board?

    Hmmm….So, Im thinking about listening to nothing but Cheese until tour?…

  5. lastwaltzer Says:

    willy, your ears might fall off if you do that. Which means you wont be able to hear phish.

    I hear they play nothing but cheese at Gitmo…………… 🙂

  7. Selector J Says:

    Silly, did you ever check that Rockers movie?

  8. SillyWilly Says:


    I thought I’d get a reaction.

    A week ago or so everyone was talking about giving up Phish for a little before tour, and it hit me today…I can find no reason why I should.

    I couldn’t be more excited for tour, and listening eases the tension a little.

  9. bouncin fan Says:

    That reminds me

    3 hippie chicks were by the lake on Sunday

    Each with a hula hoop and cheesy line sister regalia

    As I jogged by on my morning run
    Irie as hell with the Orchestre bumpin

    Had to drop a Kang sucks

    I’m such a child

  10. bouncin fan Says:

    Meant kind sister

    Nor line sister

    My nose don’t work noore anyway

  11. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    Nice bouncin!

  12. SillyWilly Says:

    Well, Selector….Funny thing. A buddy asked me that today, too.

    I had a bit of a run in with that loan $$$.

    First, the credit card company made a mean phone call.

    Then my dad swooped in.

    Now, Im officially back in dire straits.

    Excuses, I know…I could buy the thing for 10-15 bucks, but thats 10-15 I could use for groceries.

    I really want to though, if that counts for anything.

  13. lastwaltzer Says:

    Silly I’m pretty sure the human body can hold up for some seven days without food, just keep that water pumpin!

  14. SillyWilly Says:


    Hot pockets are cheap…and nutritious.

  15. Chuck D Says:

    LLFA at driveby “kang sucks’

    smoke weed everyday~

  16. lastwaltzer Says:


    Cheap sure, nutritious? Have you ever seen a Page lately?

  17. SillyWilly Says:

    There’s a girl here in school who like SCI and kids always want to group her with me.

    They say stuff like “You hippies…” and “I bet you’d like her, she likes jam bands and hippie stuff” or “You guys should be friends, she likes to wear tie dye and do hulas and stuff”

    I gave up trying to explain

  18. Selector J Says:

    Sucks to hear about that loan. I know how frustrating those loan deals can be.

    I wouldn’t worry about the Rockers for now. That movie ain’t going anywhere. If you can’t stand the wait, go see if you can rent it from somewhere.

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    You’re right, LW. Maybe I was thinking simply of caloric quantity.

  20. garretc Says:


    Well that’s of course your cue to get her into Phish instead!

  21. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    don’t forget to check your library.

  22. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    Silly be careful with those hot pockets, sodium content is through the roof. I know a guy that ate hot pockets everyday for ten years and now he’s either diabetic or can’t intake ANY salt, I forget which…but either would be a serious drag. Everything in mideration, just sayin….

  23. lastwaltzer Says:

    BTB if your out there, you’d be proud. I’m sipping on some of this “holy moses” action. Its pretty good a little on the sweet side but its good. You should let great lakes know me and SW bout a sixer, just want to make sure you get your commission.

    Classic film

    I scored the first 2 inner circle records on capital yesterday

    Jacob miller was slick as hell

    Poppy but slick

    yo what up peeps? got lost in 12-30-3009 today. good show, but it doesn’t measure up to Dec. 95 of Nov. 97 as far as cohesive exploration. I like the dixie cannobnball, corrinna, what’s the use, gone and set II is decent eno0ugh through velvet sea.

    also got absorbed watchin the mrkt. made some coin in last 15 minutes of the day and after hours, after being underwater all weekend and all day today on a short of the rus 2k. somebody fat fingered it again and saved short my ass. yikes. left a fraction of the position for tomorrow. news is really bleak, mrkt. driven by psychology, and psychology deteriorating. They need a stick save and fast. I just can’t bring myself to go long this ponzi scheme called the stock mrkt.
