Weekend Nuggets: Cover Clips

“Join the Band > Fat Man In the Bathtub” 10.31.10 II

The beginning of a legendary Halloween performance.


“Makisupa > Night Nurse > Makisupa” 10.26.10 II

The most authentic reggae cover the band has ever pulled off. In memory of Gregory Isaacs.


“Chalkdust > Whole Lotta Love > Chalkdust” 10.30.10 I

The most explosive and well-executed Led Zeppelin segment of the show – by far.

    I totally agree with Ghost, KWL was bringing this up as well. There was some sweet sounds played there.

    I really enjoyed the Mikes from Broomfield too

  3. Lycanthropist Says:

    yeh that second set is pretty good to me..

    guess it loses a little steam in the Fee Makisupa, but the jam out of Fee is straight up Radiohead territory.. love it.

    ^i like augusta more than manchester.

  5. garretc Says:

    So, uhm… There’s no footbell on stage… Should I demand my money back from Mike?

  6. nagarjuna Says:

    @garret – don’t worry, mike told me he was going to play his silent, invisible footbell tonight.

    Trey’s slow motion playing during early first set jams this summer and fall seem Little Feat related to me.

    Stealing Time and Ocelot specifically and especially.

    Maybe Trey was working on something or maybe I’m just looking for it but I hear it.

    MNF is a good one so far.

    holy crickets its been slow here. I think there were more comments during the Utica couch tour then since Saturday. I hope that means that everyone has been busy and doing well.

  10. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    lol i totally forgot they did a golden age cover this fall

  11. JeffieM Says:

    That cover was the goods, too. Golden Age… 12/31 Set 3?

  12. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @jeffie, i was literally just thinking the same thing. well sometime in the 5 new years shows in general

  13. JeffieM Says:

    What are you hitting on the run DF?

  14. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    all 5 shows

  16. JeffieM Says:

    Just NYE… I’d love more, but I’m psyched as hell for what I have.

  17. JeffieM Says:

    10/29 Cities is absolutely fantastic. I like it a lot more than the Greek version. much more creative. I don’t think the Greek version held up… great energy moment, but fairly standard and close to the theme.

  18. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    word… well, AC cities goes into that psychedelic realm, but greek cities is just straight up dance music all the way through

  19. JeffieM Says:

    Word. You know anything about Cicero, or Pre-empire Rome?

  20. neemor Says:

    Sounds like Mike is tearing shit up.
    Anyone in the Worcester area this Friday, or Albany on the 15th, or Burlington on 12.2m go check out Kung Fu.
    The guitar player is one of my faves, Tim Palmieri from The Breakfast, with RAQ keys player, etc…good time.
    Taste of Timmy with Tea Leaf in ’08:

  21. JeffieM Says:

    AC Piper is a very weird one

  22. rendog Says:

    Unfortunately I did not see Phish in 2010.

    However, I just witnessed the greatest cover of Cities ever played in Portland, OR tonight. Incredible show.

    Thanks Miner for all your work!

  23. garretc Says:


    Couldn’t agree more!

    Cities was toooooooo dope!

    Mike’s band killed it up there tonight!

    Will this line, like the others, be slightly longer?

    Haha, oh man… Anyways, great show, kids got their Middle of the Road request played, and apparently the Portland ladies LOVE Mike (Soft G) Gordon. Oh, and I got to play Mike’s effect box!!! That’s my solo before Spiral, if anybody is planning on listening from home. Which you should, because it was an awesome show!

    Also, met Mr. C, that was cool. Thanks for getting me in, “step-dad”! Hope you and the missus enjoyed yourselves!
