O'Connell Center - Gainesville, FL

In the days following their transformative Halloween in Atlanta, Phish headed back to Florida with Karl Perazzo along for his third and fourth consecutive shows. After their well-documented escapade at Coral Sky in West Palm Beach, the band played this show at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Perazzo played his final two sets before Phish traveled to the Midwest, off and running on their percussive pathway to 1997. Remain In Light took immediate effect as the band continued their collaborative grooving. Check out the late-set “Tweezer” for a show-stopping  highlight featuring this  emerging style of improv.


Jam of the Weekend:

Mike’s Song” 10.29.96 II

Phish blew up this second set “Mike’s Song” in Tallahassee, Florida, the show before Halloween. The band got some down-low practice during “Mike’s” second jam as they grooved significantly on Talking Head’s “Houses In Motion.” With Karl Perazzo on board, this piece really took off.

    xxyzx has a nice write- up on 9/19/90 from MSG. The link is from his facebook site. Also hooks it up with a download of the show. It sounds really good, even though its MP3. 🙂 Check it out.

    That dog is evil.

  6. Mr.Palmer Says:

    fake field goal was incredible. Later kids, off to my initiation into soccer coaching.

  7. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Michigan State coach had a heart attack this morning. no joke

  8. Mitch Says:

    Dog named Wilson seems fitting.

    I’d say the bar fight will lead to better water cooler talk. Embelish it differently for everyone you talk to until it sounds like you killed a guy.

    Crazy weekend. Finally back from days on the road. Family friend brought his hard drive over and we are massively swapping shows. Who cut and pasted all the torrents other music drops over the past week or so? I’m looking for the lossless Japan, Miner’s dumps, etc. Refresh my memory?

    Yesterday I bought a Subaru, I guess I’m officially from Vermont now.

    Loading up Ott Blumenkraft into a zip and uploading now, will post update when it’s live.

    My 7yo boy has officially chosen evil; he’s marching around the house singing “DUDUN. DUDUN. WILLLLLLLSON!” at the top of his lungs and scaring his 4yo sister half to death.

    annnnnnd I seem to have severely messed up something in the lower back/sciatic nerve/right leg category. Can’t really bend, twist, run, lean in that direction. Joy! At least there is loud music and smiling kids.

    the other night when i said i wish i had a big bowl of hash… well karma brought it my way. was gifted a tootsie roll last night.

  11. Mitch Says:

  12. dognamedwilson Says:

    Singin oooooohh Wilson/ punched me in the eye

  13. butter Says:

    Great call on the Bluetooth keyboard Mithch

    This one on the iPad really does suck

  14. Mitch Says:

    its not soo bad, its just not good for long term typing.

    i hadn’t been using my bluetooth keyboard for a while cause i’ve decided to stop wasting so many batteries. was holding off till i buy rechargeable but i caved today. wanted to be able to type on the bb.

    did a new setup on the living room. brought the tv from the bedroom out to the living room so i can watch football today.

  15. butter Says:

    sick, i just paired my keyboard that came with my imac, with my ipad

    this rules, typing on the ipad is a total drag

    resident Genuis comes thru big, thanks buddy

  16. butter Says:

    its just hunting and pecking for me on the ipad, more like texting on a phone, even tho its a full sized keyboard, i need the real one with the reminders

  17. Oldskool Says:

    @Butter, you should really check out the new magic trackpad from Apple. It is the best mouse I have ever used, it is the same as the newest trackpads on the MacBook Pro’s. I am actually really used to the iPad keyboard and don’t really have a problem with it now

  18. Oldskool Says:

    @Selctor J, you are wrong. The phish downloads are 24/48 and not 24/96. As I said last night Indio are the only 24/96 downloads. I won every not of high-rez downloads and use a program that has built in auto sample rate switching so I am 100% positive that what I am saying is correct.

  19. Oldskool Says:

    Own every note, sorry for the typos…

  20. butter Says:

    i think i have big hands, and have trouble hovering them over the ipad keyboard

  21. Oldskool Says:

    TwelveSouth makes a really nice compact little compass stand if you want to use external keyboard, mouse, etc. With your iPad


  22. butter Says:

    @Oldskool – will check out that track pad

    so my ALAC’s i made from the flac HD’s should play fine on my ipod?
    (i have new 160gb)

  23. KWL Says:

    3 weeks ’till broomfield 8)

  24. Mitch Says:

    thats a nice looking stand. ive been looking for one.

    that trackpad is “very nice, i like” also but i don’t see myself buying it. if my mouse died id def get it.

  25. butter Says:

    its funny tho, i look at that stand and wonder at this point if i have an extenal keypad and a stand for the ipad –

    why am i not just using my laptop?
