Weekend Nuggets: One Week ‘Til Tour


11.4.1998 McNichols Arena, Denver, CO < Megaupload

11.4.98 - Denver

As we prepare for the next run of Colorado Phish, here is a show from Denver that followed up the infamous McNichols stand of ’97. A dark-horse offering amidst the meat of Fall ’98, check “Piper > 2001” in the second set for the standout segment of the show. The first set’s “Bathtub Gin” and “Yamar” are solid versions while “Frankie Says” developed into an ambient jam a la Fall ’98 on the way to a set-punctuating “David Bowie.” Coming directly after Utah’s “Dark Side” show and Halloween in Vegas, it’s no surprise this night has lived in the shadows for so long.

I: Buried Alive > Character Zero, Guyute, Bathtub Gin, Ya Mar, Birds of a Feather, Brian and Robert, Frankie Says > David Bowie

II: Runaway Jim, The Moma Dance > Piper > Also Sprach Zarathustra > Chalk Dust Torture, Loving Cup

E: The Squirming Coil

Source: B&K 4011 > Lunatec V2 > Apogee AD1000


Type II Trivia Results:

8.10.10 (W.Rogell)

In trying to make this round easier, I think I accidentally made it harder. But this week’s champion, “Ginseng” Jeff D is always up for a challenge. After placing second last week, Jeff takes home this week’s trophy by scoring 15 points – 6 more than the closest contender. This week I got nearly thirty entries – 3 times as many as last week – so thank you to everyone for playing! This game could grow into a nice little weekly tradition here on Phish Thoughts. We shall see. For now, here are the answers and the standings.


1. “Halley’s Comet” 7.13.99 – Great Woods
2. “Bathtub Gin” 11.9.95 – The Fox, Atlanta

This laid-back, swanky “YEM” came as the encore in Tokyo on the first night of Japan Tour 2000.

A version to behold.

    I can’t believe that in 1 week we’ll be in Broomfield! Can’t wait. I can’t stop wondering what direction phish will take this fall!

    made it home from Charlotte today after a ten hour drive.

    Thankfully no where near as hung over as I was last time I drove back from NC.

    Had a great time with the Charlotte BB crew.. (although Leo doesn’t like it when the Dawgs are losing… 😉 )

    Came home to the wife and she had used her weekend well as well, creating a sculpture that pushed her up to the next phase of her development. Enjoyed a Two-Hearted with her at the studio.

    Got baned at a friends house.

    Came home to both my Charleston tickets.

    All in all a great weekend.

    Hope all is well on the board. 🙂
