Weekend Nuggets: Mullins Center

10.23.10 - Amherst (Ryan Gilbertie)


These weekend’s shows from Amherst were split down the middle. Phish brought a legitimate smoker on Saturday night and a  bona fide snoozefest on Sunday. Coming off three special shows in Augusta, Utica, and Providence, however, these shows just didn’t elevate in the same way. The first night has plenty of engaging jamming in “Tweezer,” Disease > My Friend > Caspian > Halfway to the Moon > Boogie On,” and  set-ending sequence – “Piper > Hood, YEM.” But aside from the first-set “Stash,” Sunday never really got off the ground. The  old-school first set would have been fine had there been any action in the second. But there wasn’t. When a second set’s highlight is “Roggae > Taste” you know something strange is afoot at the Circle K. Another smoking “Bowie” could do nothing to salvage this long-lost second half. But the band popped right back in Manchester like nothing had happened.

    Is the Orlando Stash somewhere on-site?

  2. Foul_Domain Says:

    I think Birds>Light would work well – instead of the final ‘snare hit’ section with the opening chords of Light.

    Works in my head, anyway. And Ive always loved Birds as an opener.

    “instead of the final ‘snare hit’ section with the opening chords of Light.”

    ^ The idea makes more sense than my sentence though.

    ‘instead of’ = ‘Replace’

  13. Highway Bill Says:

    …hello BB.

    I went to Furthur last night also. They brought the heat.

  14. Highway Bill Says:

    Got two ticket for $48, no kidding.

  15. P.S.H.S Says:

    Wowzers, setlist is a monster, I approve. I’ve yet to see furthur, only time they’ve been close, Manchester, moma was very preggers. Maybe on the next go around. I have a few die hard dead heads up my way that swore off phish in the 80’s>early 90’s. They’re all about the furthur, but one went to hartford 2 and augusta(first and second shows both with 16 year old son) the others first was Manchester. Needless to say they’re both finally coming around.

  16. EL Duderino Says:


    That’s a pretty SICK set list from last night!

  17. Highway Bill Says:

    I saw Furthur in Utica earlier this year, I think, it was snowing I remember that.

    That too, was impressive.

  18. Highway Bill Says:

    …Phish still rules.

  19. Highway Bill Says:

    …but last night was, to say the least, awesome.

  20. EL Duderino Says:

    who ever was talkin’ Carolina Panther Defense for FFBL…

    This team is awful, don’t use any of their players on either side of the ball.

  21. Highway Bill Says:

    ….reporting unoffically for Mr.MinersPhishThoughts, I’m Highway Bill.

    Good day.

  22. oldskool Says:

  23. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Eli vs. the Eagles or Flacco vs. Panthers. . I’m 50/50

  24. Mr.Palmer Says:
