Weekend Nuggets: The Jersey Shore


10/30 Official Poster

With Halloween featured earlier this week, here are the first two nights to Phish’s Fall Tour finale. Taking Boardwalk Hall by storm, the band played three shows that fit together for the holiday weekend. The first night featured the highlight-reel second set run of “Sand > Carini > Caspian, Corrina” and a standout late-set “Slave” that preceded a “Fluffhead” closer. The 30th brought one of the tour’s stronger opening sets, including “Chalk Dust > Whole Lotta Love > Chalk Dust,” “Wolfman’s > Undermind,” and “Bathtub Gin.” Then the second set got buck-wild with a scorching “Tube” opener that made it past the five minute mark, and the “TweeZeppelin” antics that injected waves of energy through the domed arena. But the real-deal playing of the this set, and arguably the hottest segment of the three nights, came in the blistering combo of “2001 > Bowie.” The “2001” could have been plucked from 1998 as Trey’s guitar work brought this one to the next level. An intricate and multi-themed “Bowie” blew the roof off the place evoking memories of the mid-90s, finalizing the Fall for the unquestionable Comeback Player of the Tour.

Jam of the Weekend:

2001 > David Bowie” 10.30.10 II

One of Atlantic City’s most impressive segments. Both of these versions are candidates for best of the modern era, and in my opinion, take the trophies.

    Don’t snooze on Augusta’s 20YL, some seriously dark psychedelia after that equally intense Light -forgot how intense that was, wow

    and the FEFY landing pad is sweet

    Phish – Psychedelic Jams 1998-2000

    There ya go @jtran!

  3. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    I’m right behind you, sumodie. In the middle of the light. Just heading out to type II.

  4. Jtran Says:

    Thanks, downloading now.

    I take it the Wolf is the VW?

  5. BrandonKayda Says:

    Yeah – Vegas Wolfman’s

    Just heard that one for the first time yesterday

  6. jdub Says:

    Seems Augusta is getting a workout today. Just starting Hood myself. And yes @Sumo, the middle of the set still feels disjointed.

  7. BrandonKayda Says:

    It’s weird to hear you guys talking about Augusta then remembering the Reba->Manteca jam in the encore. Odd.

  8. jdub Says:

    The end of Augusta Hood is hanging on by a string and then Golgi comes charging in. Kinda throws a person off. But, I now know what is still left to come.

  9. sumodie Says:

    @jdub: llfa, i’ve begun culling sets (as many here already do) and listening to segments instead of whole shows. I did listen to the Augusta Hood and it was better than I recall, though it does lack the pay-off as you & others have said

    That Reba continues to blow my mind, and though I knew the Light would upon replay, it was the 20YL that really shocked me with its dark n twisty turns

    Augusta’s Light>20YL is absolutely inseparable, IMO

  10. sumodie Says:

    @jdub: no augusta golgi for me (and I often enjoy it)

  11. jdub Says:

    I go back and forth between culling sets/shows and running through sets the whole way. A night like tonight when I’m doing a bit of office work, a whole set is nice background music, focusing when I want. And with that Reba starts up nice.

  12. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    That Augusta Reba is amazing. The fact that it’s an encore makes it all the more impressive. This is not news I suppose.

  13. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    wooo, augusta finally gets the love it deserves today

  14. Gavinsdad Says:

    I have been breaking off chunks of Fall too…kind of a cyclical digestion based on the whims of this board….most of the time it’s “oh yeah! I gotta go relisten to that!” and so on. Not ready to leave Fall quite yet.

    Nite gents

  15. neemor Says:

    Beantown, much, much love and positive thoughts your way…

    “12-29-97 Antelope proves to be too much for Mrs. Lycan.”
    ^ was there a doubt? llfa

    I’ve been spinning the Manchester Light daily here and to hop on and see Miner talk about how hand’s down the Augusta Light is this Fall, I gave it another listen.
    I had heard a few times before, but hearing it now after knowing the Manch Light, it IS a totally different beast.
    Much more energetic from Trey, for sure, some impressive and unique leads from Page, just stellar…
    Full band Phish at its best.

    I’m sold.

  16. neemor Says:

    Oh, and fuck Tom Brady.

  17. plord Says:

    Evening BB. Catching up late, need another break from what looks like an all-nighter. Getting too old for this shit.

    Beantown, best wishes for your future father in law.

    Brilliant fall weekend out here, calm enough to bundle up the little ones for a short canoe ride on the lake. Nobody else around for (nautical) miles, gorgeous, peaceful, awesome.

    Then I took care of my “been in Cali for 15 years and don’t really own a stitch of actual cold weather clothing” problem. Blasted the AC Ghost->Spooky, Stash, and Can’t Not Jibboo on the drive.

    Queueing up Augusta for a listen tonight. It’s been impossible to move away from Little Phish, Guyutica, and Manch so far (sounds like a problem others have had as well).

  18. dusty Says:

    thanks Miner for a wonder board. cheers all!

  19. Mr.Miner Says:

    Manch Light is bomb as hell. I just think Augusta goes there and beyond…

  20. Mr.Miner Says:

    12-29-97 antelope is the version of the late 90s imo

  21. Mr.Miner Says:

    cheers dusty

  22. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    agreed, thats my fav antelope i think.
    just listened to the augusta light for the first time since the day after. idk how that slipped through the cracks.

  23. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    twenty years later jam is very similar to carini jam. thats promising.

  24. plord Says:

    From SI, paraphrased, Manny Pacquiao has one more win in Cowboys Staduim than the Cowboys themselves do.

    Gnee gnee gnee.

  25. Al Says:

    The Augusta REBA will most probably get an essay of its own, won’t it?
