Five More From Summer ’95

Great Woods 7-1-95

Let’ start the week off with another dip into the primordial psychedelia of Summer ’95—the band’s most experimental tour ever.

Mike’s Song” 6.20 II, Cuyahoga Falls, OH

This menacing version descended upon Blossom, leaving many wide-eyed fans wondering what had just happened.

Tweezer > Gumbo” 6.28 II, Wantagh, NY

Another multi-faceted and experimental monster, featuring “Dave’s Energy Guide” and a jam on The Breeder’s “Cannonball,” from the first night at Jones Beach.

Runaway Jim ->  Makisupa” 7.2 II, Sugarbush, VT

A hard-edged and grinding jam eventually melts into “Makisupa” on the first night of Sugarbush’s summer-ending precursor to The Clifford Ball.

    Mardukis, did you make that photoshop of dates that JDY sent me?

  6. Mike in Austin Says:

    No. But I could. I have legendary Photoshop skills.

    Should I put the tour dates in a Stealie?

  7. albert walker Says:

    yes!!!

  10. voopa Says:

    lumpy- I can confirm that those WC dates would suck.

  11. BingosBrother Says:

    MIA is kind of a big deal.

  12. lumpyhead Says:

    word I think they’re complete bullshit so I ain’t sweatin it. I think we’re actually going to be quite pleased with Leg 2. I’m just glad that there are even two legs on this ‘light touring’ year.

    The real question is…. are they gonna douche us with no fall tour two years in a row? they wouldn’t! ….would they? I want a fkin halloween show.

  13. Mike in Austin Says:

    I don’t know how to put this…

  14. Mike in Austin Says:

    Sorry I misread the vibe. Go back to what you were doing.

  15. tela'smuff Says:

    Phish is playing CO over Labor Day. I’ll bet a Taint Splasher on it.

  16. Multibeast Says:

    Consider me convinced that there will be a CO show over labor day. I’ve been telling all my friends here in the mile high city to ‘mark it’.

  17. SillyWilly Says:

    afternoon

    i came here to write, “dates, please.”

    then i realized that was pretty obvious and cliche at this point

    so ill just wish you all my best

    Seeing Bela/Flecktones on thursday night for 10$ (sometimes being a student has it’s perks)

    ready for summer.

  18. lumpyhead Says:

    Denver (specifically dick’s) for Labor day would be a great Phish tradition to begin in 3.0

  19. tela'smuff Says:

    i was dropped a good hint that it was indeed on at Dicks again, by someone in the biz here in Brahlorado.

  20. Multibeast Says:

    “Denver (specifically dick’s) for Labor day would be a great Phish tradition to begin in 3.0”
    ^Agreed. I would like two dates at Dicks followed by 3 dates at RR.

    Been listening/semi-watching this vid from 2.15.91. Good stuff!

  21. SillyWilly Says:

    Dick’s definitely built some tradition last year.

  22. Multibeast Says:

    In all seriousness, I’ve got a buddy here in Denver in the know and he has been right about every CO date since 09, and he also said that Dicks is on this year. Hopefully Trey has cleared with the rest of the boys!
