Ten For Tuesday

Bethel Woods (Michael Mesenbourg)

Mike’s Song -> Breathe Jam ” 10.25.95 II, St.Paul, MN

A relic from the day when “Mike’s Song” had jams. In this Fall ’95 incarnation, Trey annihilates the opening segment moving to his mini kit as the band moves further and further into experimental territory. Slipping into abstraction, they pass smoothly into an instrumental interpretation of Pink Floyd’s “Breathe.”

Simple > McGrupp” 10.26.96 II, Charlotte, NC

This is but one of many standout “Simples” along the road of Fall ’96, and served as the centerpiece of Charlotte’s Fall ’96 stop.

Weekapaug -> Mango Song” 11.25.94 II, Chicago, IL

Concluding our patchwork “Mike’s Groove,” here is the unique segue and song pairing that followed “Harpua” at UIC in Fall ’94.

My Left Toe -> Whipping Post” 7.25.99 II, Noblesville, IN

In a stunning piece of first-set improvisation, Phish built their abstract Summer ’99 vehicle into a legit take on the Allman’s classic. This jam came out of nowhere at the beginning of the show at Deer Creek, foreshadowing one of Summer ’99’s best outings.

Tweezer -> Makisupa” 10.22.95 II, Champaign, IL

Another buck-wild, Fall ’95 throwdown to follow up yesterday’s “Tweezer” from the same tour.

Stash” 12.5.97 II, Cleveland, OH

Behind the dance-party funk of Fall, “Stash” made a huge splash every time it dropped. Here is the second set opener of the consistently underrated show from Cleveland State. Though this version doesn’t stray too far from structure, it absolutely slays from start to finish.

  4. poop goblin Says:

    Of all the musicians I’ve dug over the years for their chops Trey anastasio is hands down the most annoying. 30 seconds into an interview with that douche and I want to throw my air max 1 through the tv

    But I loved that Cincinnati tweezer

    Need 2 each night bgcc

    Maybe the kid I got UIC floors for will kick me his extras

  5. poop goblin Says:

    The concept of singing summer of 89 and creating that shit makes my head spin

    #shitsongs

  6. lumpyhead Says:

    MiA – Leg 2 agenda?

  7. Mr palmer Says:

    Pffft. Like you’ve never made a ring out of grass blades.

    Speaking of which … You kids official yet?

  8. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @poop, your first on my list, no worries

  9. Slicksasquatch Says:

    Summer of 89 should be reserved for Anastasio family parties . Garbage.

  10. poop goblin Says:

    May 27th

  11. Mr palmer Says:

    Nice. Right before leg 1. Best.

  12. poop goblin Says:

    Nothin says romance like a 2 night honeymoon in woosta

  13. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    haha congrats poop

  14. sumodie Says:

    HA! My partner just hit for Sat&Sun x2 at Bill G (missed on Fri)

    Meanwhile I scored two sets of fields for all 3 Dick’s

  15. [an unrelated] Wilson Says:

    sure enough. no BGCC.
    THE WORST reserved seat in the house for Long Beach, and a lawn for the Zoo. F–k PTBM.

  16. garretc Says:

    Anybody feel like updating the ticket exchange board for leg 2?

  17. Chonz Says:

    WTF, they give me tickets to the 1st and 3rd night of Dicks, but not the 2nd. Makes sense…

  18. garretc Says:

    Nice, completely shut out on all 3 PTBMs.

    If I don’t get tickets I’m going to spend the Bill Graham run asking people outside the venue where they’re from and punching east coasters in the face.

    At least it’ll totally be a cinch getting multiple tickets for each night in the on sale, so I definitely have that going for me… Can’t type that with a straight face

  19. Mr. Palmer Says:

    on your 21st birthday also. That sucks……

  20. joe Says:

    hey, happy B-day Garret. the big 2-1. all downhill from here

  21. garretc Says:

    Yeah Palmer, how rude of them! Don’t they know?

    Thanks joe! For the well wishes, if not the discouraging words… Haha

  22. MiA Says:

    I updated the ticket exchange last time. Someone else’s turn.

  23. butter Says:

    believe we have extra LBC’s @garretc

  24. MiA Says:

    Actually had some help too.

  25. sumodie Says:

    If you’ve got an extra $67,000 laying around and wanna spend 22 days flying around the world with Mickey Hart, then this trip is for you:
