Monday Mix – Fenway, Star Lake or Knoxville!


The weather was so gorgeous in the Bay Area this weekend, that combined with the NBA playoffs on Sunday, I haven’t been in front of a computer much this weekend to write an extensive post.  Sunday afternoon, however, in between playoff games, I jumped behind the wheels of steel to create another Fall ’97 Mix-up contest! I thought about using other tours, but I figured we’d keep it simple and stick with the beloved and well-circulated tour, thus eliminating all the jams from the last mix from contention.  And who can get enough Fall, 97?

So, in honor of sunshine, the playoffs heating up, and Phish Tour in TWO WEEKS, we have another Fall ’97 Mix-up contest to kill some of your time during this penultimate week of waiting.  This round, however, we are upping the ante to encourage more participation.  For this contest, the winner will have their choice of a Sec 23-135 Row KK ticket to the tour opener at Fenway, a lawn ticket to Phish’s much-anticipated return to Star Lake, or a Sec 119 seat for Knoxville’s sleeper show.  Yup- admit one to the winner- for free!  The ticket will be shipped to the winner at the end of this week.  The runner-up will able to choose three “Downloads of the Day” next week, with short, accompanying write-ups.  So put off that task, procrastinate doing your work, and get checkout the newest mix.  Here’s the details on the contest:

This is the show directly following Utah’s Dark Side show which gets understandably overlooked by many who weren’t there.  While not sharing the level of fireworks as Utah, this follow up to Denver ’97 was no slouch.  With a first set that centered on the “Bathtub Gin > Yamar” combo, it was book-ended by “Buried Alive” and “Bowie,” creating an high energy first set; and the second set didn’t slow down at all.  The meat of the set came in the “Moma, Piper > 2001, Chalk Dust,” with the “Piper > 2001” being the gem of the show.  A psychedelic roller coaster into the cosmos, the transition into “2001” is sublime.  A dark horse offering amidst all the fire of Fall ’98.

I: Buried Alive, Character Zero, Guyute, Bathtub Gin > Ya Mar, Birds of a Feather, Brian and Robert, Frankie Says  > David Bowie
