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


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.

    “Kind of kid that gets 600 dollars of pick ups in a fender squire”

    lol the pickups were under $100. i had to pay someone to route out my guitar so they could fit. there’s no middle pickup spot in a tele. plus the wiring and some extra switches and push pull pots

  2. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    yeah i’d agree the golden age falls in that category, but that sally was a pretty original and sublime jam

    “my friend is now ordering a Celestial Portrait of his wedding picture for his fiancees 1 year anniversary present.”

    I can’t tell if you’re kidding.

    Please, don’t be”

    A Celestial Portrait is nothing to joke about.

    last time I was in Atlantic City, I stayed here. pretty nice and close enough to the venue to walk.


  17. KWL Says:

    looks like smuggler’s brew pub is just up the street from the ole condo

    when’s the disc golf tourney in telly robear? afternoon storms every day for the last 2 weeks where i’m at

  18. lastwaltzer Says:


    while I didn’t have time to sit and watch your bros band, I did pass by and herd a little bit. They had quite the crowd.

  19. Robear Says:


    imma’ call the place.


    see if we can make a d- time. i think the one main course is up at the mountain village. we may have to be the early birds. let’s pick a day-monday or tuesday.

    there’s also a primitive course at the town park, near the venue, i reckon.

  20. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @LW, btw. because i know how much you care 😉 i changed my arcade fire pitchfrok review prediction to 9.3

  21. joe Says:

    speaking of which, any Boston area folks hitting Arcade Fire tomorrow night? I know some are doing Black Keys tonight. not a bad back to back at that venue. perfect weather for it too.

  22. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @joe, are you going?
    if not, their second night at msg next week is being streamed on youtube and directed by terry gilliam… they’re playing in TO in a couple weeks but i’m gonna be at alpine… though i think i am seeing the black keys when they are here this week

  23. lastwaltzer Says:


    Yeah I’m waiting patiently for the gods that are the writers at pitchfork to give it an amazing review so I can force my conscious to like it. Seriously, I tried it again the other night, its okay still not being blown away. And honestly I’m sick of the whining about suburban life. They feel like the next U2.

  24. joe Says:

    I actually haven’t even listened start to finish to the new one. just some tracks. I’m sure the whole time I’m there in the back of my mind I’ll be wishing it were phish no matter how good it is.

  25. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    ew U2 comparison

    living in the suburbs fucking sucks.
