"Fee" - 8.12.10 (M. Stein)

After a sloppy opening frame, Phish came back with one of their more creatively constructed sets of tour. “Drowned” brought the band into a new-school rhythmic-ambient jam, while they connected  “Jibboo > Gin” with a seamless segue. Trey left the whale behind on this second set “Bathtub Gin” using his Ocedoc to carve melodies into the summer night. After a quality mid-set interlude, Phish capped the evening by deconstructing “Split” into “Dog-Faced Boy,” and an impressive “Hood” which passes through an unorthodox segment of darkness on  the way to the top. All-in-all, this show is flying under the radar due to larger explosions at The Greek and Alpine Valley.

I: Runaway Jim, Punch You In the Eye, Roggae, Cars Trucks Buses, Sample in a Jar, NICU, Horn, Sugar Shack, Wolfman’s Brother, Time Turns Elastic

II: Drowned > Gotta Jibboo > Bathtub Gin, My Friend, My Friend, Buffalo Bill, Twist, The Horse > Silent in the Morning , Split Open and Melt > Dog Faced Boy, Harry Hood > Golgi Apparatus

    Today’s show: 11/29/96.

    A fiery Maze (aren’t they all), plus a Wilson > Simple > Sparks > Sparkle in the second frame, capped by a fantastic YEM that turns from funk to fire even as Trey breaks a string.

    Where would some of you rather be for the Boardwalk showz:

    GA Floor?

    Reserved Seat?

    Do you think they’ll have it set up to stop the floor stub down?

  3. Robear Says:

    Fall tour would involve some serious driving on some of the nights.

    my dad taught me its easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. generally in regards to large purchases. lets just use wendy’s photos and then the band cant get mad cause we took them.

    listen to me with “lets” and “we” 😉

    we’d have to give wendy a big care package as thank you tho. maybe tix to a whole tour.

    re: migrant line standers
    I think it boils down to two things for me.
    1) It’s an easy gig but it lacks any sense of pride. If I were a migrant worker, I couldn’t imagine going home and when my wife and kids ask me “What did you do today?” telling them “Oh, I stood in line.” Whereas if I helped build a fence or did some landscaping or even hauled some bricks, I could at least show some pride in the quality and efficiency in the work I did. Standing in line for pay sounds like a soul killer.

    2) People should stand in line like everyone else. Paying someone to do the unexciting job of waiting in line at a GA show subverts the innate meritocracy of the GA system. Part of what makes GA shows so consistently great is that the people that wait in line all day get the best seats. They deserve it and they’re going to appreciate it the most.

    Basically, immigrant issues aside, the question we must ask ourselves is are we Tri-Lams or are we Alpha-Betas? :mrgreen:

    most of my musical discussion yesterday was over vegas wolfmans last 5 mins of great smooth chill jamming and the traffic rec’s that were made on here.

  7. phoammhead Says:


    I don’t like the driving between showz – highways are dangerous – I like to get to a location, settle in and see at least two and preferably three showz.

    For my money and planning this fall is looking good – N Charleston (2 nights); Atlantic City (3); Hampton (not yet official but looks like 3) and NYC (not yet official but looks like 4 or 5) – dream set up IMO.

    listening to the biscuts..

    I can definitely see the talent and the appeal of it, its just not my cup of tea.

    Not big into the techno-jam or electro-jam or whatever its called.
    I do like use of synth and space jams and stuff, but not big into the rave-up style of doing it.

    STS9 falls into the same category… although I tend to be a little more susceptible to it because they at least used to throw in some nice jazz feels..

    I could definitely trip out to this shit one night if I was just feeling like dancing my ass off.

  9. Frycanthropist Says:

    I will say for this kind of music they are putting together some real nice melodies and soundscapes.

  10. Mitch Says:

    re: inverted jams. i have enough time trying to put my finger on a musical quote of another song when im super baked and often when not. let alone flipping songs and stuff.

    umphrey’s gets me all the time with that stuff. i’m at a show and know the songs cause ive seen the song live a whole bunch but dont know it by heart cause i dont play it at home a lot and the way they weave songs in and out of each other… lets just say i’m not the setlist book kid at those shows.

    sounds like a really dope idea tho. keeps it fresh.

  11. Robear Says:

    I want to hear from a migrant line stander on this issue. Until then, bollocks.

  12. Mitch Says:

    ^and you get to be super hetty’er than thou cause you know all the transitions…

  13. Frycanthropist Says:

    Chance Fisher likes to do sandwiches a lot.

    i.e. –

    History of the World > Da Bears > History of the World
    Its an Ambush > Alabaster Shavings > Its an Ambush
    Schizo > Atrophy Road > Schizo

    etc etc

    I know that doesnt mean much, butt its more like we like to use a song’s jam as a way to find our way to the next song and then find a different way back to the original song.

  14. Frycanthropist Says:

    haven’t listened to much UM or Disco…

    given Disco a fair shot now…

  15. ThePigSong Says:

    phish is the only band of this genre that I can follow song by song. When I see the rest of these bands I just dance and drink beer.

  16. Frycanthropist Says:

    Phish is the only band of this genre that i really listen to.

    well, the Grateful Dead if you count them…

    and I am just now (within the last 5 years) delving heavily into them.

  17. Frycanthropist Says:

    them being the Dead.

    Been listening to Phish for 16 years.. lol

  18. ThePigSong Says:

    from the little I know of your musical tastes @Lycan – I think Umphreys would be up your alley.

    I’ve yet to be disappointed after an UM show in the last 8 or 9 years.

  19. Frycanthropist Says:

    not doubting just curious..

    in what aspects? because I have always been a little leary to check them out.

    wouldn’t mind being sold on em a bit.

  20. ThePigSong Says:

    They are very straight-forward-rock oriented.

    I seem to remember you considering yourself a rock and roll keyboardist.

    Sorry I haven’t listened to your stuff in a while, so I can’t make any direct comparison.

  21. ThePigSong Says:

    then again, I just enjoy their shows more than most acts out there and want everyone to have that experience 🙂

  22. Mitch Says:

    i feel old when i’m at um shows. least the beer lines are short.

  23. Mitch Says:

    could also be why i’ve seen them 27 times and still cant make out which song they jammed out of and back into. i tend to drink a lot more at um.

  24. Frycanthropist Says:

    its all good Pig.

    I have a wide ranging taste regarding genres, but very selective amongst the genres.

    But I realize its selective only to MY tastes. Doesn’t necessarily mean its good music. 😉

    I mean I do like Pearl Jam, They Might Be Giants and Ben Folds.. so I know I got some early 90s suburb residue in my tastes. But I have tried and succeeded in continuing to develop my ear for good music and constantly seeking out new things I haven’t heard, old or new.

    I give bands that I have already said I don’t like another chance every 3-5 years to see if they can catch me another time around. So far SCI and WSP have remained off my rotation.

    Phish and the Dead take up all my jam music time. Ha.

    Wouldn’t mind incorporating some other jam music in there as well, but so far nothing is able to dethrone the two almightys

    SO this was a completely pointless rambling bane post.
    Must have caught some of whatever Ramblin’ got.

  25. Mitch Says:

    um doesnt consider themselves a jam band fwiw. they just get lumped in cause all the jam kids go see them. like benevento.
