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.”

    Great film Bingo’s. The music in it was haunting as well.

  2. joe Says:

    nassua dead shows were some of my (earliest) and favorites. Just looking at setlist trying to remember which ones I hit in the 90’s. Useless exercise for me. (KEEP YOUR STUBS KIDS!!!! and a diary if you want to retain accurate memories) Anyway, they were doing 5 night runs there too? (sparked by someone’s comment a few weeks ago).

  3. joe Says:

    or in miner’s case. Maintain a highly visited and acclaimed website.

  4. halcyon Says:

    Grant Green – Live at the Lighthouse is fire.

  5. BingosBrother Says:

    Listen to joe kids. Serious gold when you’re spun sometimes too. Or things like this.

    “I am here. And what are you doing.” BB friend quote written in my notebook.

  6. Mr. Palmer Says:

    i used to do the setlist book thing a long time ago. Then it just became a few extra things in my pockets that annoyed me at shows.

  7. joe Says:

    well not the setlist book, per se, but maybe some scribbled down thoughts after the show. people you were with, funny thing that happened in lot, favorite jam, etc. put with stub and kept in a box that you look through 20 years later (couldn’t resist) and smile at the memory instead of mashing up every show in your head into one vague memory.

    ^this (pretty much)

  9. joe Says:

    also, the other source of your b-day show on archive is very nice. listening start to end here….

    Kansas -11.5 for the Tahoe Fund!!! wish me luck.

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Definitely a good idea Joe. Would be nice to have some real memories of some great shows. for example, 4.3.98. My only real memory from being at that show was the Mikes opener and the kid running on stage during Loving Cup. Everything else…. i got nothing.

  11. nonoyolker Says:

    Enjoy the show tonight GDad, hope they finish strong

    Live at the Lighthouse is the heat for real, truth. Funky shit

  12. Dr. Pronoia Says:

    Have a great time GD! A friend at the last few nights said they were truly inspired

  13. gavinsdad Says:

    i did so much spring 93 GD. almost all of it…rosemont, richfield, landover,…then albany and nassau. it was my last big messy run before rehab. one of my fave/creepy nassau 93 show memories was after the last nite. i got a ride to the city. i had a silly amount of cash in my pocket, a small pharmacy on me, and was spun as fuck. i was trying to get to somebodys house who i owed said money to. i felt like i was on a karmic mission. it was rather late. they weren’t home. this was like between Ave A and B and like 5th st which at the time wasn’t really that sunny of a place. i passed a palm readers shop. only thing lit up there at like midnite….purple neon. i had a premonition.


    so i skipped that. went to this club called the shelter…which was hosting a pretty serious “rave” party at the time called NASA…dj DB and scotto. i danced some of the L off…then cabbed it to…you guessed it…The Chelsea Hotel. no idea why i chose that place but it was calling me. got a disgusting room and slept, fully clothed, and perhaps in my jacket, on top of the bedspread. next morning woke up alone…got the bus back over to NJ.

    i just remember the electric air to the proceedings…functioning but floating. don’t really miss that.

    Saw it again!!!

  15. gavinsdad Says:

    creepy storytime with Gdad! whee!

  16. Robear Says:

    Top of the mornin’

    Check out that gem above. In tribute to Bear Owsley. Deep

  17. butter Says:

    Happy B’ day Palmer

    love the stories @GD, its like real content to a post

    all the music reccs are great and all, but makes for some sterile reading

    bring on the juicy stories and have a blast at Furthur

    they are dropping sets full of improv every night right under our noses, been spinning nye and red rocks from last year and digging

    last nights looks sick

  18. butter Says:

    @Joe -your right about writing stuff down if you want to remember it

    i just had an idea:

    you could make a blog and write a review of every show, that would have your thoughts catalogued for future reference

  19. butter Says:

    loved the palm reading part of the story, GD

    even tho you didn’t get them read, it a added a darkness to your story +5

  20. Spike2518 Says:

    Saw it again!!

  21. Mr. Palmer Says:

    what did you see @ Spike?

  22. butter Says:

    spinning this Stash from Friday loud, to start this Sunday

    lol, i can finally keep up with Phishthoughts if i have all weekend to spin the ttff

    for whatever reason it feels like a i have 10 good minutes a day for spinning tunes, its actually more than that, i get a lot of good spins at the gym – but for them not to be repeats i gotta be constantly syncing ipods – which doesn’t happen

    don’t get me wrong i’m playing music at least 3 hours a day, but i am only LISTENING for a fraction of that time to due business

  23. butter Says:

    he saw IT again!

  24. Foul_Domain Says:

    Happy birthday Palmer!

  25. butter Says:

    sick ska metal harder edge to this Stash first jam
