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.

    joe = best avatar

    have you seen The Town?

    you need to.

  3. kenny powers Says:


    are ALACs smaller than FLACs?

    i could do that to make my collection more iTunes friendly…i just worry about compatibility issues, since FLAC is more universal.

    JB Numberline is the bizness.

    I’m planning on hitting the matinee on Tuesday. Working overnights on Monday and Tuesday night, so daytime movie is about the right speed for me. Not a huge movie goer (last movie I saw was Exit Through The Gift Shop a few months ago, and then the Phish 3d movie before that) but I do like seeing places I’m familiar with on screen. They shot some of the scenes in an office building I used to do security for. It was funny when they called up after hours so I was the only person around to answer the phone and the guy said he was calling about filming the new Ben Affleck movie at the building. I thought it was a joke at the time but took him seriously enough to not just hang up on him.

    “I listen to all my music either, in the car (through ipod), Bose sound dock (through ipod), or my computer speakers (imac). Although i do hear the difference between mp3 and lossless, i’m not sure the difference warrants overhauling my entire collection.” – Palmer


  7. butter Says:

    they are a little smaller KP

  8. butter Says:

    a few of my FLAC HD’s that i converted to AIFF had been corrupting the ipod

    interested to see if the ALAC conversions work fine

  9. El Duderino Says:


    I’m not sure an i-Pod can handle 24/96kHz files Butterz…

    maybe that’s why it’s corrupting your i-Pod.

  10. joe Says:

    this right here might be the biggest difference between Phish and DMB fans.(for those of you keeping a list of all the things said on the board about the 2) Do you think any of them care about ALAC, FLAC HD’s, vs. mp3’s? Has anyone ever sadi, ” Man, you can really hear the dynamics of Dave’s strum much better in the new audio format.”

    Talking Heads rule. Rocking More Buildings…now.

  12. El Duderino Says:

    @ KP

    That 12/31/98 MSG re-master you did…

    Is it from the FOB MK4V Carrion Crow source????

  13. El Duderino Says:

    @ Joe

    I’m sure there are people like that in that ‘community”

  14. El Duderino Says:

    The SLF is going to see Lady Gaga tonight with Mrs. Weaver @ the Time Warner Cable Arena

  15. joe Says:

    you think? I’m guessing a very small percentage, if that.

  16. kenny powers Says:

    @ El Dude


    it was taped by Bob Siegel


  17. joe Says:

    might have to troll a dave fansite to spark up a conversation about it and see what I turn up.

  18. butter Says:

    ok….been wondering about that

    i don’t know what happens after you convert the hd’s to AIFF or ALAC

    they played for a little bit on the ipod as AIFF’s

    then they corrupted it, i haven’t deleted them, but i haven’t gone back to play them either after completely re-setting ipod

  19. kenny powers Says:

    although, it does say this:

    Big thanks to Carrion Crow for letting me borrow his DATs!”

  20. El Duderino Says:

    @ KP

    If you look closely the dats came from Carrion Crow…

    Might have to get that one from you…

  21. joe Says:

    ok. finishing up some “work” here and then out to enjoy the day. Have a good one!

  22. El Duderino Says:

    @ Butterz

    I’m almost positive that an i-Pod can only go up to 16bit/44.1kHz file size

  23. El Duderino Says:

    @ KP

    Do you have a link for that show.
    Can’t seem to find it on your site.

  24. kenny powers Says:
