Ten Tunes For Friday

6.27.10 (G.Lucas)

Today, in a one-time appearance between tours, Ten Tunes For Friday focuses on past highlights from all the Leg II venues. Spanning eras and playing styles, the history of these venues dip into a wide spectrum of Phish history. And here’s a small taste.

***

Reba” 8.9.97 I

This dreamy, daytime “Reba” contributed to a big first set at Alpine ’97.

Stash” 8.28.93 I

Pollock '93

This first-set highlight from The Greek showcased Phish’s torrid jamming of Summer ’93, defined by near-subconscious communication.

Run Like An Antelope” 8.12.96 I

Deer Creek and “Antelope” have become two peas in a pod over Phish’s career, with more than a few standout versions played in the cornfields. The band threw down this dizzying jam in the first set of the first show in 1996, setting the tone for a memorable weekend.

Fee > David Bowie” 10.28.91 I

1990

This combination closed the first set at Elk Ballroom, Phish’s last visit to Telluride. And yes, Phish could play then too.

Harry Hood” 8.10.97 I

A uniquely gorgeous “Harry Hood,” this version carried a somber tone as Phish played the usually-blissful jam in a minor key to close the first set at Deer Creek.

Harpua” 10.28.91 II

A classic version of “Harpua” with comical narration from another era of Phish, nineteen years ago. This selection goes out to zzyzx!

Tweezer > Gumbo” 6.28.95 II

Strap on your seat belt for a wild ride through a quintessential  piece of Summer ’95 improv. “Tweezer” passes through countless themes, including ‘Dave’s Energy Guide” and a jam of The Breeder’s “Cannonball,” on the way to a half-hour epic at Jones Beach.

You Enjoy Myself” 8.28.93 II

The final piece to Summer ’93, featuring a prominent “Oye Como Va” jam.

  2. BingosBrother Says:

    Damn, that place looks fun. thanks for the pic butter. That glowstick vid brought back some bad memories. Painted our walls in detergent one night, which looked awesome, but I still don’t think I’ve gotten that smell off of my hands. Damn near drove me nutty.

  3. butter Says:

    Welcome bingos , I was def concerned about that glowstick juice on those dudes bare hands

  4. c0wfunk Says:

    have you guys seen the youtube snake game? ::

    go to a random youtube video, hit pause then hold down the back arrow for a few seconds. You can then play snake, yes SNAKE, on the screen.

  5. phoammhead Says:

    Halloween!!!

    Anybody got any ideas on hotels in Atlantic City? I’m thinking about The Chelsea . . .

    Does anyone have any ideas on which nights the boyz will play? I’m hoping Fri, Sat and Sun . . .

  6. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    Commenters to the glowstick toilet video on Huffpo have repeatedly posted this link debunking the toxicity of the glowy chemical in glowsticks.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6871791

    Initially I was excited by this news, then read the abstract, and I now I’m depressed. I’d rather have thousands of tripping young people dumping glowsticks into our water supply than ONE study where glowjuice is put in rabbit’s eyes…

  7. butter Says:

    Fri , sat, sun is what I heard and makes sense

    Caesars is super close, what’s up with The Chelsea?

  8. Mr. Completely Says:

    huh!

  9. lastwaltzer Says:

    @Dr.P

    Animal testing is so twisted.

  10. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    Who DOES that????

  11. Robear Says:

    top of the mornin’ all!

    Greek Theater looks pretty sweet from Google Earth.

    “look at all these rumors, surrounding me everyday, just need some time, some time to get away”

  12. phoammhead Says:

    Chelsea is also very close and I like the way it looks for the money . . . I just booked it.

  13. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    Sorry, that’ll be the last downer post by me through second leg…

    Just wanted to give the official green light to all us BB’ers — instead of confiscating glowsticks this tour, just slice em open and champagne spray them on all your (talking and iPhoning) neighbors…

  14. BeantownBoy Says:

    What a day with temps in the low 70s it is definitely a day to sit on your porch, crank the dub, and smoke a big cone of da bane.

    Fortunately, that is just what happened.

    Farmer’s Market now and Black Keys in a few hours equals a nice Saturday.

  15. Jtran Says:

    AC hmmm.

  16. butter Says:

    We can’t let those rabbits eyes not have been used for nothing

    We will have to make it rain glowstick juice

  17. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    LLFA Robear, we were just looking at google earth.

    Flying out in 24 hrs!

  18. zzyzx Says:

    “I heard no Warfield but the Fox in Oakland instead. Either would be a treat for those lucky enough to get a ticket.”

    I wouldn’t even bother trying.

  19. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    Agreed Butter. I’m picturing sliding down the hill at Alpine, only instead of mud, we use glow juice

  20. Robear Says:

    catch me up on the latest false rumors, peeps!

    tzara’s, scoping out the house, the theater and points between.

  21. phoammhead Says:

    @Robear

    Look back a couple of pages to late last night and see where Miner says Atlantic City Halloween from a very good source that’s batting a thousand.

  22. Robear Says:

    ‘Waste’ from 11/29/09 = $$1/2$

  23. Robear Says:

    thanks (gak) @ phoam

  24. phoammhead Says:

    Headed out shortly from Asheville to Charlotte for tonights WSP show – Queen City here I come – the panic boyz are going to bring it tonight! đŸ™‚
