Weekend Nuggets: The Heartland ’94


Spring 1994 (

This weekend we feature two smoking shows from Summer ’94 from the Great Plains.  Kansas and Iowa, not Phish’s every day stops- so all the more reason to throw down.  The Kansas City second set ripped, containing a ’94 “Reba” to be reckoned with.  The Iowa show features a tripped out “Asse Festival” which segues into “Sweet Adeline” and then a Digital Delay jam before finishing “Guelah Papyrus.”  A “Split” punctuates the first set before a huge “Bowie” and a “YEM” anchor the second.

Winged music note


Jam of the Weekend:

Crosseyed and Painless” 1.1.00, Cypress

One of the most exciting jams from the all-night set.   Trey threads a melodic theme throughout the excursion that peaks with a fury.  Have a great weekend!
