Ten Tunes For Friday

8.2.09 (G.Lucas)

With under a month left until Summer 2010, each Friday inches us ever closer to new Phish music. Until then, each week we can focus on the relics from the past with ten more tunes. Enjoy the music, and enjoy the weekend!


Auld Lang Syne > Disease Jam > Split” 12.31.93 III

Arguably the greatest splash into the new year that Phish has ever pulled off, debuting the cathartic “Disease” jam before anyone knew the song. “Down With Disease” would be unveiled in ’94’s first show in Burlington.



Reba” 4.9.94 II

A soaring version with a ferocious peak from Binghamton ’94.



Tweezer” 6.29.94 II

A heavy, imposing rendition that emerged deep in the second set at Walnut Creek ’94.



Antelope” 12.6.97 I

During Fall ’97, Phish looked through a lens of funk grooves, transposing their vision on any and every song. Here’s a dancy first set example from Auburn Hills.



Wolfman’s > Scents and Subtle Sounds” 7.7.03 II

In the first show of Summer ’03 in, Phish led off the second set with this one-two punch, debuting “Scents and Subtle Sounds” to the Phoenix audience.



Mike’s Song” 11.7.98 I

1998 was the last consistently great year for “Mike’s Songs,” and this dark-horse version that all-but opened UIC’s three-night stand, moves from militant rhythms into a blissful second jam to balance things out.



Yamar” 12.13.97 I

Kicking off the final show of Fall ’97 in Albany, Phish jumped onto the dance floor quickly with this funktastic take on “Yamar.”



YEM > Fast Enough For You” 4.29.94 II

This “YEM”oozes ’94 energy and creativity, veering from a vocal jam and melting into “Fast Enough For You.”



David Bowie” 4.30.94 II

A classic rendition from Orlando, with “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” intro.

    Was she a good drummer?

  2. Chuck D Says:

    Karissa was on PCP, its not her fault people!

  3. BTB Says:

    I am a Karissa fan. Hell yeah, dance your ass off in whatever weird way you want!

    She was the girl featured in the ‘skit’ before PH played – and then she was behind the band I think.

    There’s nothing to do on PT except Diarrhea all day….its funny, but pure Diarrhea…

  4. El Duderino Says:

    Sounds like Big Nasty has a crush on this Karissa chickadee.

    As long as she busts out ” I Wanna Smoke Your Pole” I’m cool I guess

  5. BTB Says:


    It is pretty funny though

    Her name is ‘Gordoporno’ on PT FWIW

  6. bhizzle Says:

    btb… i feel like i just got rick rolled

  7. Guyute711 Says:

    somebody called her a 3.0 fan on PT. Thought that was pretty funny but Green board blows.

  8. sanchothehutt Says:

    Robear-Sorry, still way behind on posts…

    Yeah, I skipped a lot of class in college, which wasn’t good because I went to a smaller college ( UW Eau Claire) and a lot of the profs would take attendance and count it against you if you didn’t show up. So perhaps there is something there insofar as the dreams.

  9. BTB Says:

    When I was watching that last night I thought to myself, “damn, good for that chick. I’d dance with her”

    The haters on PT have nothing better to do

    Probably same people making fun of Rich for his Vacuum solo

    Verbal Diarrhea…

  10. El Duderino Says:

    Of course she’s a 3.0 phan.

    Hell the last tour Phish did in ’04 she was still playing with dolls in grade school!

  11. Guyute711 Says:

    good for her, may the noobs inherit the Earth

  12. sanchothehutt Says:

    Yeah, I don’t get the haters on PT. BB rules, hope to see some of you at Alpine (lawn, all the way back against the wall Page side…best spot on that lawn).

  13. angryjoggerz Says:

    People are hating on her for dancing to Phish at a live Phish event? I am not really sure what the greenboarders are into, but I for one am very much into dancing to Phish at a live Phish event. 1.0,2.0, 3.0.

  14. voopa Says:

    Speaking of Rich…

    Remember the dudes that were pimping F8 on Conan? One of them was wearing that same Fishman dress shirt that Rich was wearing in Miami.

    Coincidence, or weird viral Phish marketing ploy?

    Maybe the guy on Conan WAS Rich?

  15. BigNasty Says:

    Word dude….out.

  16. Stupendous Says:

    Fuck haters!

  17. GOOCHY Says:

    Green board sucks, this isn’t news. If you post on there with any regularity you probably suck, FYI.

  18. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Sunday Night 8:45 pm TAB.. free stream of show


  19. bhizzle Says:

    karissa answer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMsSrmnhVqU

    why no one bust on Mattie’s dancing?

  20. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Actually North Miss. Allstars are playing right now on that link.

  21. KWL Says:

    llfa @ goochy

    fwiw i would rather be karissa than the guy from blue’s clues

  22. Pencilneck Says:

    Ladies love that dude from blue’s clues.
    Hi. BB. Long time no post.

  23. sanchothehutt Says:


    I was lucky enough to have caught a gem of a Cool It Down at the Target Center, I think in 2000. Didn’t have a clue what it was at the time, but immediately loved it.

  24. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    That Six Flags video of Karissa is funny as hell. FWIW, last night, I just chalked it up to a zealous fan, who most of the “dudes in the front row” would actually fight to have by their side at a show (she certainly wasn’t as ugly as the girl Phish fan sitting in the row behind her – that’s what most girls at Phish shows look like … slightly strange). Did she dork it up? Yes. But, was she original? Yes. Did she care? No. Does she love Phish? Yes. Did she rock to Loving Cup? Yes.

    Screw the GB. But that six flags video is solid gold nonetheless.

  25. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    From my Page 1 post this morning:

    [] Oh, and two words for you concerning my dance moves this summer …… Karissa.


    and then a little later


    Karissa and Rich will get married in T-Ride this summer. Then will be divorced by Jones Beach.
