Weekend Nuggets: The Carolinas of Fall ’95


j_1834_north_and_south_carolina_burrFor this three-day weekend, I am featuring a standout three-night swing through the Carolinas in November of 1995.  Beginning in Charleston, SC and heading north along tobacco road with stops in Charlotte and Winston-Salem, Phish blazed a trail heading north for Thanksgiving.  The Charleston show took no time to rage with a “Dinner and a Movie” opener and an outstanding first set.  Phish came back and threw down a great second frame highlighted by a 30-minute “YEM” with a “Brickhouse” jam contained within.    Charlotte’s second set was a start-to-finish beast with a “Tweezer” centerpiece and glorious end of set “Hood.”  Winston-Salem’s second set “Bowie > Take Me to the River > Bowie” and “Mike’s” stood out among the rest on the band’s dark and final night in the south.

In order to prepare everyone for the Summer “No Spoilers” downloads (more on that later) and all of the upcoming summer show downloads- which will only be offered in torrent format, this weekend I am going to give everybody practice with torrent-only links.  With three days for people to ask questions and figure it out, I thought this would be a good time to start. (Here are links touTorrent and Vuze)   Remember to keep your torrent windows open when you are done downloading so other people can grab it from you- that is the point!

Happy Memorial Day!  Enjoy the barbeques, and may the Schwartz be with you!

FALL ’97 Mix-Up Pt. 2 – TIE BREAKER

phishdestroysamericaLinked below is the tie breaking mix for George, Mark, and Robert.  Anyone else is free to listen to, or download, the mix, but it’s a bit different this time around.  This mix was made specifically for competition as a challenge our Fall ’97 ninjas, not necessarily “for your listening pleasure.”  The tie-breaker has just as many tracks in less than half the time, without any real focus on artistic merit.  13 jams in 33 minutes- we’ll see what happens!  Look for the results on Tuesday; the first post following this holiday weekend.  The winner gets their choice of a Fenway, Starlake or Knoxville ticket shipped directly to their door!

George, Mark, and Robert- your 13 track entries are due by Monday at 7 pm eastern / 4 pacific. Good luck!

    I’ve had my knox tickets forever. Did ya’ll mail order them? I have 3 extras as of today if anyone wants em…

    I came home from a business trip on Friday to find my tix in the mail. The earliest show in my order was JB 4th. They are definately keeping the timing tight for a reason, to not allow eBayers the time to mail tix to their respective hightest bidders. I imagine the earlier the first show is in your order, the earlier your tix will ship. I would think your Knoxville tix will arrive this week.

    They HAVE been paying attention to the (ob)scene. This is just one step towards the consolidation and renovation of the whole ticket fiasco.

    Miner, thank you for your outstanding blog. However, it does seem unfortunate that Page is the only bandmember without a tag link. If I may offer one request – maybe a little tribute to the Chairman of the Boards in the near future?
