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.

    I’m hoping for a Mikes>Light>Paug on new years. 2nd set.

  3. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    that would be amazing LW. light with auld lang syne teases, of course

  4. Robear Says:

    you cats need to email your ideas to Trey.

  5. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    the fact that nye isn’t the last show of the new year’s run might change everything

  6. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    as in, will there be more jams? will they play yem on nye? if they do, then 1.1.11 might be redonkulous. oh man. i can’t wait

  7. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    (etc, etc)

  8. lastwaltzer Says:


    you wanna pass along his email addresses llfa?

    I think a Tweezer> Spanish Moon in the second set is order.

  9. Robear Says:

    the 1.1.11 show actually starts at midnight. It’s a one setter, plus encore.

  10. albert walker Says:

    Arcade Fire cover on new years. with full gospel choir.

  11. Mr. Palmer Says:

    You guys think 1/1 will be a “normal” show? I think there will be something a little special going on that night. Just a hunch. 🙂

  12. Robear Says:


    is all I have for Trey.

    I already put in my request for ‘Ghost>Izabella>Liquid Time’ for the set on the 1st.

  13. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    guaranteed they play spanish moon during the run

  14. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    yes AW! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-8nQw-oV5o&feature=related

  15. lastwaltzer Says:


    and thats why I’m pissed I’m not going, I can’t see a normal show going down right after nye.

  16. lastwaltzer Says:

    I’m still holding out for


  17. Mr.Palmer Says:

    your not going @ LW. just 30 and 31 for you?

  18. lastwaltzer Says:

  19. phoammhead Says:

    all 5 new years run showz are guaranteed to be smokin’! 😀

    yes, i think spanish moon is a lock for the new years run! me=excited!

  20. phoammhead Says:

    ^trey said it “one of his favorites” 🙂

  21. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Feats Don’t Fail Me Now in NYC.

    Don’t the sunrise look so pretty
    Never such a sight
    Like a rollin’ into New York City
    With the skyline in the morning light
    Roll right through the night …

    too obvious?

  22. garretc Says:

    Oh good, it’s finally an appropriate time to gush about NYE excitement! I’ve been waiting all week for an excuse to say how awesome it’s going to be…

  23. lastwaltzer Says:


    just 31. Couldn’t figure a way to do the 30th or 1st cost effectively. We could take the train but its gonna take to much time, plus I’m “really” going back to see my family and friends.

    I think were gonna go up on the 28th just to hang out in the city since J-dawg has never really been to new york. Last time we went it was raining and we just cabbed it from the Moma to the Guggenheim. HOpefully this time we’ll get to walk around a bunch and probably hit the met or whitey, central park, etc.

  24. Robear Says:

    not many a better place to be than wherever phish plays on NYE.

  25. albert walker Says:

    you should stop by sometime
