Weekend Nuggets: The 4th of July


Official Alpharetta Poster

Phish celebrated July 4th with to in Atlanta’s northern suburbs with the third patriotic weekend of their career. Finishing tour with four sets of energetic music, the band created an all-out party vibe for the tour finale. Within the two shows, improvisational highlights emerged in “Bathtub Gin,” “Antelope,” “Tweezer > Slave,” “Jibboo,” and “Piper > Ghost.” Finishing Independence Day with Rage Against the Machine’s ” Killing in the Name,” sandwiched within a comical, revisionist-history “Harpua” narrative,  Phish created their own pyrotechnics for the holiday.

    Chalk Dust Torture Reprise may be the sweetest Phish song out there

  2. Jtran Says:

    De Jong’s flying kick to Xabi Alanso was pretty outrageous. If Webb didn’t see it I can understand, but if he did that’s a red card in any other game

  3. Jtran Says:

    I’m reading the history of CDT Reprise on phish.net. Go to look at the setlist for its debut show in 94 and see this:

    “Notes: The debut of Chalk Dust Torture Reprise included crew introductions. This version of Simple appears on A Live One. The opening act was Dave Matthews Band.”

    bwahaha Dave

  23. Frankie Says:

    Dead Kenny G’s… A Trois.

    No Quarter! 🙂

  24. butter Says:

    that xylophone gets annoying

    too many morning of jam cruise with the sun rising listening to that damn thing

  25. Frankie Says:

    Big fan of Mike D myself. Saw him with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and Les Claypool… Vibraphone master and a really cool instrument to see live in my opinion… a cross between a piano and a drum.

    Never been on Jamcruise so maybe I would have a different opinion if I had been woken up by it every morning… 🙂
