MR. MINER'S PHISH THOUGHTS

Hampton ’09 (J.Volckhausen)

Another week in the books, and summer tour is but two away. Today is one of the last few installments of Ten Tunes before the music begins to flow in earnest. The time is almost upon us. But while we’re waiting, here are some jams to enhance your Friday. Happy Memorial Day weekend folks, the summer season officially starts now.

Bathtub Gin > 2001” 12.2.99 II

This sequence served as the centerpiece of the first second set of December ’99.

***

David Bowie” 11.20.94 II

A ferocious jam set the table for the all-timer the following week in Minneapolis.

Halley’s > Hood” 2.24.03 II

After an incredibly (read: too) long sit-in from BB King slowed the first set to a crawl, this sequence picked up the action to start the second set in style. And post-hiatus “Hoods” began to grow.

Stash” 12.29.95 I

A phenomenal version that capped a vintage year for “Stash.”

Tweezer” 11.11.96 II

There was no better way to kick off what many believe to be the greatest New Year’s Run of all-time in 1995.

***

Antelope 8.12.96 I

Deer Creek “Antelopes” and Alpine “Tweezers,” timeless Midwestern staples of summer tour. This aggressive “Antelope” showed up in the first set of ’96′s first show, setting the tone for a stellar two nights in the cornfields of Noblesville.

***

YEM” 10.31.09 III

Indio’s celebratory, and rather large, Halloween “YEM;” one of ’09′s better versions.

Another week in the books, and summer tour is but two away. Today is one of the last few installments of Ten Tunes before the music begins to flow in earnest. The time is almost upon us. But while we’re waiting, here are some jams to enhance your Friday. Happy Memorial Day weekend folks, the …
