TTFF: Phish2k—Summer Tour

10.23.2010 (Dave Lavery)

The Summer of 2000—moving from Tokyo, Japan to Columbus, Ohio—represented Phish’s last true push of creative music. Though the band’s playing in Japan was on another level than in the states, the band, nonetheless, cranked through a solid summer tour—their last until 2003. Once the fall came, Phish shows turned less consistently creative, and standout jams came less frequently as the band moved towards hiatus. Today’s playlist features some of the tour’s lesser known jams to go along with a couple fan favorites, all arranged chronologically as they came in the Summer of 2000. Enjoy ten more tunes as the wait for summer dates continues!

***

Piper” 6.10.00 I, Tokyo, JP

The only “Piper” of Japan happened in a big way in the first set of Tokyo’s second show.

Birds -> Catapult > Heavy Things” 6.29.00 II, Holmdel, NJ

Phish dropped this stellar piece of improv to open the final set of PNC’s two night stand. The dark and twisted “Birds” jam has hints of Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme” laced throughout .

Ghost” 7.1.00 II, Hartford, CT

Limb by Limb -> 2001” 7.6.00 II, Toronto, ON

Split Open and Melt” 7.7.00 II, Burgettstown, PA

Though not with the unbridled fury of 1994, Phish could still rip a serious “Melt” in 2000. Can they still?

Mike’s Song” 7.14.00 II, Columbus, OH

A driving and sinister jam transforms into beauty, representing one of the last—if not the final—versions of “Mike’s” with two jams.

Down With Disease -> WMMGW” 7.15.00 II, Columbus, OH

    also, decided to remove the bath tub. not enough room to do a decent shower and a tub. I need the shower to bathe my son. He’s getting too big to lift in and out of the bath tub.

  2. garretc Says:

    @Robear

    I obviously don’t know the logistics of your to-be-remodeled bathroom, but my mom is currently having our house remodeled, and the bathroom redesigns include lots of colored glass blocks, which look particularly nice when put in the outside wall, if your bathroom shares such a wall with the outside… I could probs ly find a picture to send you if your curious how that looks, but I’m not sure if you’re accepting suggestions on redesign or not…

  3. Robear Says:

    sounds nice gc. not touching any outside walls though.

  4. 20 Minute Halley's Says:

    Did Phish already announce Bonnaroo? Or did that just get updated on Phish.com?

  5. voopa Says:

    Mornin’

  6. garretc Says:

    Word, well then I’m not sure whether it’s worth the cost or effort, mainly because I don’t know the cost or effort, but just figured I’d throw it out there as something to think about. Could also potentially be used as part of the “door” of the shower, just an immobile part of it (you know, half or what not), then with a smaller moving bit than before…

    Anyways, enough of my unsolicited, amateur interior design advice, homework isn’t gonna do itself, even on a Sunday…

  7. garretc Says:

    @20MH

    Yeah, that’s been on the site since the ‘Roo lineup was announced on… Monday? Tuesday? Whenever that was…

  8. tela'smuff Says:

    basking in the glow that was the Phil & F run this weekend. Although I missed last night, all accounts are it was another barn burner. Scofield came back to play apparently. look forward to hearing this.

    besides becoming a fan of Warren now, i gotta say that Joe Russo is an absolute beast on the drums. next to Fishman, he might be my favorite drummer at this point. he sounds like two drummers playing.

    if this lineup were to tour this summer, i’d travel for it. if Phish doesn’t come out this summer with the same type of willingness to explore and take risks like P&F did, then my days of Phish travel may be over.

  9. 20 Minute Halley's Says:

    gotcha!

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

    This has been Phil’s mo since he started these things. Even with Furthur, the exploration was always there.

    Listening to these shows I’m not really hearing what Greene brings to the table except for some average vocals. Rather hear Chris Robinson. Those will be good shows, when he jumps on with Herring.

  11. Mike in Austin Says:

    @Robear, I tiled the floor like your picture. Small 1 inch by 1 inch tiles that matched the wall tiles. I used smaller tiles than those 16″ Travertine that are in your photo so I wanted smaller tile on the floor also.

    That was one of the tougher parts. Because you needed to put a liner in it (mortar shower pan). You have to concrete a “bowl” to some extent and raise up the edges by about 1 cm to make sure the water flows into the drain. Great videos below. I use these guys all the time.

  12. Mike in Austin Says:

    Huh. I just watched the videos, and he wanted more of a slope than I put in. I’d follow his directions, rather than mine!

    Are you thinking of dual shower heads? If it’s completely ripped out, I’d look at rainshower heads from above.

  13. eljefe Says:

    Russo is drumming w/ Phil and Friends? Bonus!

  14. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Took the 2/16 P+F tapes for a nice long run yesterday. Tough to keep the Phil and Phriends shows off my mind when listening to that stuff, but that band sounds great. Scofield in particular continues to play a game with which I am not familiar. Pumped to go see him play Krasno off the park again in BK at the end of the month.

  15. Mike in Austin Says:

    Oh, so I did the 2/3 height walls like I said, then my budget ran thin, so I just put up a shower curtain like you mentioned. Then when I could afford the glass door, I put that in (about 6 months later).

    Because of the size of my opening, I ended up glassing the last 1/3 of the wall to the ceiling in glass, and a new door.

    The reason I left the walls at 3/4 is that the bathroom was in my basement with no windows. So not a lot of light in the bathroom. If I had just a light in the shower, it would have been very dark, so I wanted a much glass as possible, just to let light in.

    Just A Little Light

  17. Mike in Austin Says:

    Mike’s Tile Thoughts. Sorry.

  18. kayatosh Says:

    greetings, friends.

    Sounds like better news, GDad. We feel for you here at the kaya household. All parents want is for their kids to be healthy and happy. As a father, I can relate to your recent plight. You are one of the nicest guys I know and your karma is positive. Things will work out for you and yours.

    Thanks for the feedback, Dr. P and MIA re. my shit. It’s amazing how ill anxiety (if that’s all that it is) has made me feel. I stopped drinking on the reg. this past week and felt the uneasiness, dizziness hit me hard soon thereafter. I felt like something was majorly wrong with me on friday into saturday.

    The pressure and stress of self-employment (w/ sketchy results) has clearly taken its toll on me. Going to inquire w/ my uncle about a job in his empire. If it means being a lackey for my cousins, than so be it. All of this is hypothetical, b/c not sure there’s even a position for me.

    Putting extra attention into hydrating and have been living clean as of late to reset the ole body and mind. Got a good workout in today, and teaching yoga also helped settle me. Trouble is, as I start to feel more grounded and decent, I think about the vpr. Booze I do not miss, and white tea is a more than adequate substitute for coffee (and much mellower). Perhaps ghee for the next few is the way.

    sounds like I need to check out some recent phil shows. I have gone very light on listening to post-GD projects, w/ the exception of Phil and Phriends 99 (absolutely brilliant stuff), b/c the GD golden years (and even the not so golden yrs) keep me satisfied.

    Got my 5.8333333 year old boy playing chess. He’s a natural.

    Eastbound and Down premier tonight.

  20. Gavinsdad Says:

    @rob – u have mail. Not sure of protocol. Sorry in advance for any missteps.

  21. kayatosh Says:

    looking at 2.16.2012 P&Fs FOB aud. Any highlights that I should direct my attention toward?

  22. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Kaya- Cryptical>Magic Bus>Other One

  23. Mr. Palmer Says:

    2/17/12- Only up to Low Spark, but, this set is pretty hot…and looks like it only gets better.

  24. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Man, the Knicks are a blast to watch right now.

  25. Mr. Palmer Says:

    yes they are Duke. They are a deep, dangerous team now. The Garden is alive again.
