Weekend Nuggets

The culmination of three nights at the classic Fox Theatre in Atlanta, this show is among the best of 1995’s 54-show fall tour.  Taking a week off after Halloween, Phish reemerged in Atlanta for these three nights to kick off the second leg of the tour.  Wasting no time getting deep, the band dove right into a second song Mike’s that initiated the first set onslaught, leaving a set list that would read like a second set.  With a darkly layered Stash, precise Yamar, and ripping Chalkkdust, this set was chock full of imrovisation.  The second set upped the ante, opening with a 2001 > Bowie, in quintessential ’95 form.  A Fluffhead and a set closing Antelope rounded out one fans’ favorites nights of the fall.  A show focused on improvisation from start to finish, it is a must-have ’95 classic.
