A Fix From ’96

Summer 1996—Pollack T-shirt

1996 Summer Tour T-Shirt (Pollock)


The Curtain > Tweezer” 8.6 II, Morrison, CO

A timeless piece of Red Rocks history.



Mike’s > Lifeboy” 8.13 II, Noblesville, IN

They don’t make “Mike’s” this anymore.



Harry Hood” 12.6 II, Las Vegas, NV

A heart-wrenching, end-of-tour classic from The Aladdin.



Bathtub Gin” 11.7 II, Lexington, KY

The Rupp Arena “Gin”—an all-timer.



Reba” 8.17 I, Plattsburgh, NY

After waking up from the first night of The Clifford Ball, the band continued the dream sequence with this blissful, afternoon “Reba.”



Run Like an Antelope” 11.24 I, Portland, OR

A ferocious and under-the-radar version that put an exclamation point on the first set in PDX like a musical freight train.

    Thanks. I plan to do the midwest run from Nati to AV (at the very least DC>AV) with or without west coast dates announced. And have a free pass to do so after only catching 4 shows in 2011. I’m due. Happy to see middle America getting some love.

    I’m sure you guys have already hit on this, but the Bill Graham sucks. Weird choice if that holds true.

  2. Tom Says:

    How old do you need to be to book a hotel in NJ?

  3. El Duderino Says:

    ????? 21 i bet

  4. Mr palmer Says:

    Nah, JB isn’t that bad with gas. Security is
    Pretty tight there.

    AC will be mafia/gas insanity.

  5. Tom Says:

    I think dayman said earlier today he was gonna try and hit AC, it might be worth checking in with him?

    I didn’t think it mattered for hotels. If your money (valid cc), you should be fine. As long as you’re not under 18. Not positive though. Been too long since that applied to me

    Just had to go between our buildings at work here. The police station is in between. Couple smoking a j in a mini van with windows down directly in front of station’s lobby door. Made me laugh

  10. joe Says:

    If your money (valid cc) is good

    Or if you’re money.

  11. garretc Says:


    Nah, lots of places have 21 age limits for hotel reservations, similar to rental cars and what not…

    Probably has to do with insurance type stuff or something, lack of regular incomes yadda yadda

  12. El Duderino Says:

    I thought you had to be 25 to rent a car

  13. garretc Says:

    “I thought you had to be 25 to rent a car”

    It’s totally possible… I forgot what the age limit was once I knew that I hadn’t reached it yet! Haha

  14. joe Says:

    Forget what a pain in the ass it was for certain things when under age. But fuck it, you’ve got energy and resourcefulness on your side…and smartphones.

  15. RoosterPizza Says:

    Haha……fucking phones

  18. butter Says:

  19. Tom Says:

    Phish instantly destroyed any chance I had at productive studying for the rest my midterms this week.

  20. Mike in Austin Says:

    Phish – creating C+ students for two decades.

  21. Mike in Austin Says:

    Selector is waking up, brewing a cuppa and getting his discs all lined up got this morning.
