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.

  5. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    wud up fellas!
    nice list of brews indeed @halcy
    too many belgian and german style ales for my taste but a lot of new interesting choices!

  6. halcyon Says:

    Yeah I am interested in some of these beers, especially the Himalayan IPA, BacksideStout from Steamworks, and Naked Oatmeal Stout from Rock Bottom in Louisville. I always thought of Rock Bottom being a generic chain of brew pubs, but they seem to have won several awards this year.

    What up? How were the 1 o’clock games? missed them all. Spent the last 3 hours being “trained” to be a soccer coach, then actually attempting to coach a bunch of 5 year olds. I’m exhausted!. Beer being cracked pronto!

    Listening to 9/19/90 GD from MSG… great show. 20 years later, still upside down…

  11. Jtran Says:

    Just loaded 8/1/98 and 10/17/96 onto the ipod. Never heard either show (except the 8/1 Tweezer), gonna spin some highlights on my way down to Stowe for dinner and back.

    Gonna be a nice drive 🙂

  12. voopa Says:

  16. plord Says:

    Thanks sumodie, I was pulling the .dankseed version, not the .dnk so I just switched (there were no seeders so I didn’t lose any time).

  17. voopa Says:

    Sorry about that plord…turned off utorrent for something unrelated, and forgot to start it.

  18. plord Says:
