Ten Tunes For Friday

12.31.09 (W.Rogell)

Welcome back to Friday, and these ten tunes focus, specifically, on summer tours past. With a couple months separating us from Summer 2010, I figured we’d take a trip down memory lane. Please choose to either download the selections OR stream them to minimize bandwidth cost. Thanks, and have a great weekend!


Reba” 8.2.03 I

A brilliant highlight from IT’s first set. There’s nothing like an afternoon, festival-sized “Reba” jam.



Tweezer” 7.25.98 II

A Summer ’98 classic featuring larger-than-life, bulbous dance grooves.



Drowned > Chalkdust Reprise” 7.11.00 I

Flooding over from yesterday’s “Drowned” post, here we have “the Phish from Vermont” indulging in musical-comedy, best blending this jam into the old-school, anthemic, “Chalkdust Reprise.”



Split Open and Melt” 6.11.94 II

A concise, power-packed version from Red Rocks ’94. A perfect example of musical density.



Stash” 7.22.93 I

An old-school shred-fest for Big Red under a deluge at Stowe, VT during Summer ’93. On stage Trey remarked that the stage crew was talking about canceling the show due to possible electrocution. His response? “I told ’em Fuck that. Put the plug up my ass and count out Llama!”



Disease > Free” 6.26.95 II

A personal favorite, and a deep dive into Summer ’95 psychedelia.



Scent of a Mule” 8.17.97 III

Oh no, the quintessential set-killer! Think again, this is Limestone, Maine, and in final set of The Great Went, “Scent of a Mule” became an ethereal launchpad. Out of the usual “Mule Duel” segment, the band decided to play as the spirit moved, drifting into an beautiful and experimental segment of music. The band delicately passed through the “Mind Left Body” theme and a digital delay jam before awkwardly crashing back into Gordon’s speedgrass.



Demand > Antelope” 6.24.94 II

This smoking experimental “Antelope” hails from the intimate confines of The Murat Theatre, circa ’94; a magnificent, multi-faceted piece of music.

7.16.98 The Gorge, George, WA < Megaupload

The Gorge '09 (W.Rogell)

The first night of The Gorge ’98, a two-set beast in its own right, even though it has always lived in the shadows of 7.17’s peak performance.

II: Julius, The Moma Dance,  Piper, Axilla, David Bowie, Tube, Slave to the Traffic Light

    this dwd>free is all kinds of readicculus.

    and i had an epiphany: why not pull out the cd of 6-11-94? smart…

  2. kayatosh Says:

    i’ll leave you with one thought . . . bring back lagrange

  3. Robear Says:

    hip-hop fans,

    curious folks,

    Robear recommends Aesop Rock – ‘Float’ for your weekend listening

    one of my Top 10’s, maybe 5

  4. Lycanthropist Says:

    thoughts on going to a Pink Floyd tribute band for 10 bones?

  5. ChefBradford Says:

    ten dollars? Why not

    Aesop Rock’s “None Shall Pass” album is pretty good, too

  6. garretc Says:

    Checking in from set break of Arlo Guthrie and Family here on campus. Pretty cool show. I could do without the real young chilluns being up on stage, but other than that it’s been a good time, to be certain. Some GDP and a bottle of Sam Adams summer ale pre show certainly doesn’t hurt! Plus it has the added bonus of being ‘baned up around a bunch of middle aged to old people, which is something that won’t feel normal for a while yet… Haha

    Enjoy your Friday evenings! (Saturday mornings now, east coasters!)

    Oh, and personal set break music: Groovatron

  7. beepaphone Says:

    Aesop is legit. As is Groovatron. The latter is in Indy all the time…they play regularly right by my house actually. Good band for sure. Kind of Umphrey’sish without all the unnecessary 80’s hair shredding.

  8. ChefBradford Says:

    None Shall Pass is all I’ve heard of Aesop. Haven’t check Groovatron further than a few songs from one of the shows someone recommended the other day, but it was fun stuff

    Heard a song tonight from the new album of a group somebody mentioned a couple days ago. Plants and Animals, I think?

  9. Mrs. Leo Weaver Says:

    @KWL…thank you…and my husband can only draw a straight line when he’s spinning in circles…he’ll be proud that I made a TAB reference 😉

    @Everyone…thank you for your good vibes the past two days. I felt the much-needed love and am feeling better every minute. It just goes to prove positive energy travels and flows. Keep the good vibes flowing!

  10. beepaphone Says:

    @ Lycan, I’d do it…as long as like Phish or maybe Journey, SCI, or WSP is in town or anything.

  11. beepaphone Says:

    Good to see my posts make sense. *AREN’T in town.

  12. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    Just watched the GD JFK89….

    Sound was subpar in the theater an d it wasnt even widescreen but
    decent show….the first set smoked the second IMO.

    Good BDay outing!

    NIghty nIght yall!

  13. Stupendous a.k.a The Beasel Says:

    this place is deserted…

  14. ChefBradford Says:

    I’m barely here, Stupendous, about to crash. Work in five or six hours. Is that the GD movie I saw an on-line ad for? Indigo. etc, or something?

    What about Time Turns Elastic for the ultimate buzz kill of a set.
