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.

    “Who DOES that????”Dr. P

    Fucking scientists. Should just left it at the world being flat. 😉

  2. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    Yeah, we’re up in the Berkeley Hills. Looks like pleasant walk down before a show. Walking all the way up, after a show? Might need a burro.

    Anyone game for a brewpub meetup Thursday afternoon? Looks like there is Triple Rock, and Jupiter. I will be sampling both ahead of time and can report back if needed. That’s the kind type of person I am.

    “I wouldn’t even bother trying.”ZZTOP

    awesome, once less person trying for tickets, my chance are that much better. 🙂

  4. zzyzx Says:

    Screw it… just reserved a room at the trop… what the heck?

  5. zzyzx Says:

    last – the fox holds 2700 people, your chances are still effectively zero.

  6. lastwaltzer Says:

    @ZZTOP

    I was kidding, there is no way I can afford flying anywhere just to hit a concert. Good luck. Have you gotten your greeks yet?

  7. lastwaltzer Says:

    ZZ, you gotta roll with style like my grandma Taj Mahal, all the way!

  8. Robear Says:

    zzyz, for halloween? i’m confused. behind this morning.

    ::need to puff::

  9. lastwaltzer Says:

    well they blew up the chicken man in philly last night……………

  10. zzyzx Says:

    Yes 10/30-31.

    I have friends at the Trop so I just reserved where they did…

  11. lastwaltzer Says:

    @ZZ

    totally joking. Dump’s Taj Mahal is a shit show. Even if it was my grandmothers stand by. I did have my first two concert experiences there though. The first being: TOM JONES the other Ringo Starr. Tom Jones was nothing short of epic.

  12. zzyzx Says:

    The trop might be a dump too but, hey, no Mel so…

  13. willowed Says:

    Hey boys and girls. So this Board Walk Hall, Is this near all the casino’s?
    I am looking into rooms. I have stayed at the Topicana before. Rooms are 69.00 bucks. Is that close to the venue?

  14. Lycanthropist Says:

    gooood morning!

  15. lastwaltzer Says:

    Just too keep in mind. The Tropicana had HUGE bed bug problem a few months ago, as did many hotels in A.C. So although you may be flying solo you may be bringing house guests back with you!

  16. lastwaltzer Says:

    @willowed

    its right near all the hotels. I mentioned earlier on the bottom of one of the pages that I’ve been there. Its actually a pretty cool arena.

  17. Robear Says:

    i’ve officially lost my marbles.

    looking at hotels in jersey based on a rumor.

  18. Lycanthropist Says:

    < is not stoked that an AC Halloween rumor is floating around with so much cred.

  19. Jtran Says:

    Is this the same Tropicana as Vegas? Or same idea

  20. Jtran Says:

    The only reason I’m pretty ok with the AC rumor is because my two best high school buddies (twins) live in Philly and Wash DC, and could most likely make it. Seen a show with both of them but never the three of us together, so it’d be sweet for that reason alone for me.

  21. willowed Says:

    Thanks for the info boys. making raz. now.

    I hope the cleaned up that bed bugs issue. Not like it maters because they’ll have to fumigate that bitch one more time after all the dirty wooks vacate AC.

  22. Robear Says:

    i’m with u lycan.

    if they play AC for halloween, I’m giving all my merit badges to Miner and ZZyZX

  23. zzyzx Says:

    Well it will have been 6 months by then so… fingers crossed.

    God I hope I end up canceling this one…

  24. Lycanthropist Says:

    no doubt

    i was much more excited about the Cincy rumors

  25. butter Says:

    Robear, we heard from a solid Warfield, San Fran connection:

    2 nights in Oct
