TTFW: Late ’90s Grab Bag

12.28.11 - MSG (Graham Lucas)

Runaway Jim” 7.31.97 II, Mountain View, CA

Jammed out “Jims” where have you gone?



Tweezer” 8.1.98 II, East Troy, WI

Can never get enough of the Alpine “Tweeze”…



Ghost” 7.3.97 II, Nuremburg, GR

Euro ’97 “Ghosts” were slow, funky and exploratory, as Phish honed their new jam vehicle before coming stateside.



Bathtub Gin” 10.1.99 I, Ames, IA

A first set smoker from the heartland in ’99. We came out to a smashed window and many things stolen from our car before the all-night drive to Minneapolis. Fuckin’ wooks…



Reba” 8.14.96 I, Hershey, PA

A stunning version from a Summer ’96.



Stash” 9.9.99 I, Vancouver, BC

A psychedelic trek from Fall ’99’s first set.



2001” 7.7.99 II, Charlotte, NC

One of ’99’s top versions.



Mike’s Song” 12.2.97 II, Philadelphia, PA

This version needs no introduction—funk warfare.



Piper > Guy Forget” 10.1.00 II, Phoenix, AZ

The first bust-out of “Guy Forget” after being a piece of soundcheck lore for years.



Weekapaug Groove” 4.3.98 I, Uniondale, NY

My favorite “Weekapaug” to date.

    is it AJ?

    I was thinking the same thing when I saw this photo this AM but wasn’t sure.

    looks like him.

  8. angryjoggerz Says:

    Im not sure either… I mean, I imagine he is there, but not exactly sure this is him.

  9. poop goblin Says:

    He is there no doubt. kid is active as all fuck. pretty much everyday I think. I love that kid. keeps it real.

    he also rocks a similar knitted hat and flannels and of course the big beard

    problem is there are probably several LW look alikes that have been bussed into town

    I texted him to see if it was him.

  10. MiA Says:

    Everyone looks better with the beard.

    PSA – Masthay’s prints are gonna go like hotcakes.

  11. Jtran Says:

    Looks like him to me

  12. phoammhead Says:

    i remember back in high school . . . a buddy of mine and I would get out of school or off from soccer practice or what have you and head to the convenience and pick up a 64 oz fountain coke or mountain dew or some sugary, caffeinated drink . . . slam it down, head home and play in the backyard for hours. never realized how that behavior shaped my life going forward . . . wouldn’t it be nice to be 16 and elastic again

  13. xpun Says:

    did you see the thing in the news about these toddler and tiaras little girls chugging red bull, dew, etc to get them “peppy” before going on stage. they’re like 6-10 yers old, wtf, good job mom and dad

  16. xpun Says:

    At least you have your outfit picked out?

  19. Mr palmer Says:

    Midtown NYC on a nice spring day.

    Eye candy galore. I might get arrested.

  20. MiA Says:

    Every girl crazy about a ….

    Midtown NYC anywhere on a nice spring day.

    Worthy of getting arrested for. Women didn’t get lovely to not be noticed.

  21. poop goblin Says:

    Confirmed LW

    Told him to start rockin the hip aggro west coast protestor bandana look tomorrow

    If we spotted him that easily so will the feds

  22. angryjoggerz Says:

    Tomorrow night is date night for my wife and I and I agreed to see a movie. I do not like movies. I just looked at the selection and it is dire. Avengers? Good god. Those are some b-list superheros right there. Still, it has to be better than Battleship… though it would be fun to see Battleship and shout “you sank my battleship” like every 2 minutes.

    There is a reason my wife only goes to one movie a year with me. Last time we went I fell sound asleep.

  23. angryjoggerz Says:

    No way, LW in the place. Occupy the front page.

  24. BingosBrother Says:

    Occu-Chi ers. Helping Phriendly orchestra tonight at martyrs. Also The Stepkids at Park West. Wish I could go, but an 11 year old girl wants me at her softball game. So it goes.

    The Stepkids- Santos and Ken(this track is groovy)

  25. angryjoggerz Says:

    And yes, I am a delightful husband.
