TTFF: March Madness Mix

The Madness

With the NCAA Basketball Tournament moving through the prime-time rounds of sixteen and eight today and tomorrow, here is another form of March Madness that can accompany the games: March Phish! With the exception of one selection this week, all tracks are pulled from the month of March in Phish history, focusing primarily on the years of 1992 and 1993. (And most are in SBD form.) Enjoy the music and the hoops, and have a great weekend!


The Landlady > David Bowie” 4.5.92 II

The only pick of the week that pops into April, but at this point, so does the Final Four. Check out this top-shelf combo from Boulder’s Fox Theatre to kick start your day.



10.30.10 (D. Lavery)

Reba” 3.22.93 I

A first set gem from the Crest Theatre’s legendary Gamehendge show¬† in Sacramento, California.



Stash ” 3.30.93 I

A imposing beast from Eugene, Oregon.



6.12.10 (L.Neuhaus)

Antelope > BBFCFM > Antelope” 3.13.92 I

One of two mind-numbing “Antelopes” in a week during spring ’92, this Phishy excursion comes from the well-known Campus Club show in Providence, Rhode Island.



Tweezer” 3.30.93 II

This rather experimental piece contains elements of groove, rock, and abstract jamming.



Feel Good

Harry Hood” 3.12.93 II

The cathartic exclamation point to Phish’s performance in Vail’s Dobson Ice Arena; a smoking and creative old-school version.



Mike’s > Lawn Boy > Weekapaug” 3.1.97 II

To close out the week, here is Markthalle’s Door’s-laced “Mike’s Groove” from Europe ’97, as documented on “Slip, Stitch, and Pass.”

    Just finished The Fall by Albert Camus. Pretty thought provoking read. Going to sit on that for a bit. Anyone else ever read it?

    Elvis Costello …very interesting

  5. plord Says:

    Costello was a big fan, he’s on a couple of tribute albums. He’s been playing Ship of Fools in his own live shows for like 20 years!

    special Furthur show tonite. slightly heavy on the guest slots up front but to be honest each song was played so tastefully it didn’t matter at all. quite the homage that first set.

    2nd set part of this hallway on phils side was lit up dancing like the days of old.

    last show (nokia) i dug i got the unbroken and st stephen treatment as well. lucky guy.

    just got back home. that up-and-back was definitely worth it. bedtime for this guy.

    sorry didn’t catch you AE. see you in holmdel or camden.
