Weekend Nuggets: Summer ’98


Lemonwheel Pollack Postcard - Summer '98

This weekend we have two reader requests from the well-loved summer of ’98. Only ten days apart, these Alpine and Star Lake shows saw Phish stop at two classic venues on their way up to Limestone to end the summer. Alpine’s “Tweezer” is the crowning moment of this night with one of the more beautiful versions of the late ’90s, while Star Lake saw Phish take “Runaway Jim” out for a 35-minute affair. And plenty other highlights abound in each of these stellar shows. Shout outs to Frankie and Flarrdogg for these choices.
