Weekend Nuggets: Two Tuesdays In June


Official Portsmouth Poster

Although the Tuesday night shows of tour didn’t explode like many expected, they still produced some legitimate highlights. Stellar versions of “Bathtub Gin” and “Slave” came out of Portsmouth, Virginia’s first set, while an engaging sequence of “46 Days > Idea > 2001 > Simple” provided the meat of of the second. Canandaigua saw the most significant, non-traditional “Mike’s Groove” of tour, underlined by “I Am the Walrus > Weekapaug,” and also featured a laid-back, jam-filled first set that fit the cool New York evening like a glove.

  1. Mr. Completely Says:

    ok @ 20 mins they almost return to theme and then decide not to and instead there’s this beautiful intricate little jam

    another example of the patience which is the upside of 2.0

  2. Mr. Completely Says:

    alright well I will bring the fiver if you change your mind

    this “bonus jam” is the best part of this very nice Gin, at about 22′ now

  3. Mr. Completely Says:

    ha! this jam is all about not quite playing the return to theme.

    very slick syncopated ensemble work. extremely sick Trey tone. extremely.

  4. phoammhead Says:

    i’m 5 min into 34 min piper from 6/19/04 and it’s already type II jammin’ and i’m lovin’ it! 🙂

  5. phoammhead Says:

    yeah, it seems like the boyz could go in and out of focus/type ii jammin’ more often these dayz . . .

  6. BingosBrother Says:

    Wow, did smething happen between today and yesterday? Left off at p. 13 and now we’re at 33? Well, saw this from Mr. C.

    “damn this Garcia Plays Dylan release keeps coming up on shuffle”

    The Senor from this double disc might be my all time favorite song.

    Back to catch up.

  7. phoammhead Says:

    . . . can i get a couple of recs of shows for type ii jammin’ . . .

  8. whole tour! Says:

    have mercy
    we pray Jah! mon!

    @phoammhead – two type II classics: 11/02/1996 set 2 and 07/23/97. cannot go wrong when you venture into those voids. Also check out the second set from Charlotte 2003. Type II jam fest!

  9. phoammhead Says:

    cool @WT – will check those out – thx!

    this piper from 6/19/04 was 5 min of piper and 29 min of type ii – gets a little played around 15 min of type ii, but still a nice adventure even after that . . . this is goin’ deep, for sure . . . good segue into jibboo

  10. Mr. Completely Says:


    the other night from SPAC 04 is another deep adventure, 6.20

    staying in the Phish 2.0 realm, you should definitely check out IT for some serious open improv sessions

    that’s without even getting into the 97-99 era

  11. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    yo, just saw inception
    it is your average really good hollywood summer blockbuster
    no real characters or anything, just pick the biggest actors you can afford and have them read lines that are directed at advancing a plot rather than character development
    i’d take memento any day over inception
    good hollywood movie, but nothing really new or original here

  12. Mr. Completely Says:

    The Piper does drag a bit in the middle for me but overall it’s very successful.

    I really like both the Jiboo and Limb that follow the Piper, they’re just very beautifully phrased and Trey is showing off a nicely perfected tone throughout

    those tunes get kind of missed in the open-jam fiesta of SPAC ’04

  13. whole tour! Says:

    the prestige is where it’s at!

  14. Mr. Completely Says:

    funny, I’ve liked almost every Nolan movie I’ve ever seen (the exception being Insomnia, which I found deadly dull) but have never loved any of them, including Memento…

    it suffered from Indie Hit Overselling, in otherwords, a good, clever little movie that got pimped as like the most genius thing ever, so when I saw it, it was a distinct letdown by just being good. Happens a lot, I should learn the lesson.

  15. Mr. Completely Says:

    I liked Prestige but found the ending twist to be ludicrous.

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @C, have you only seen memento once?

  17. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    nolan = very, very consistent

  18. Mr. Completely Says:

    Not trying to bag on Nolan here. He’s much better than almost any other big budget director working today. I just have never LOVED LOVED LOVED any of his films.

  19. Mr. Completely Says:

    @f0ol, no, we ended up watching it again, my wife wanted to make sure she understood it. We considered watching it backwards but weren’t motivated enough to do it.

    Again, I do like it. It’s intelligent and well made. Quite a good piece of work. It had just been sold to me as this OMG WTF Best Movie EVAR!!!! kind of experience…which isn’t Nolan’s fault, you know

  20. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    that’s basically how i feel about nolan too completely, but if you’ve only seen memento once you need to see it again. not only because your expectations may have hurt your opinion but also because it’s the type of movie that NEEDS to be seen more than once, like eternal sunshine

  21. Mr. Completely Says:

    I think the last time a movie was hyped like that and I actually liked it as much as people said I would was the original Matrix.

    That’s a pretty long time ago now.

    Trying to think of a more recent example…

  22. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    oh there you go ha, yeah i watched it again recentlyish, it is probably a bit overrated i agree, but still very good

  23. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    eternal sunshine had mad hype, i assume you love that movie?

  24. phoammhead Says:

    thx C – will chk those out too

  25. Mr. Completely Says:

    no, I’m saying we DID watch it again, just not backwards

    luckily with Eternal Sunshine it hadn’t been hyped to me very much and I was able to enjoy it on its own merits
