Let’ start the week off with another dip into the primordial psychedelia of Summer ’95โ€”the band’s most experimental tour ever.

Mike’s Song” 6.20 II, Cuyahoga Falls, OH

This menacing version descended upon Blossom, leaving many wide-eyed fans wondering what had just happened.

Tweezer > Gumbo” 6.28 II, Wantagh, NY

Runaway Jim -> ย Makisupa” 7.2 II, Sugarbush, VT

A hard-edged and grinding jam eventually melts into “Makisupa” on the first night of Sugarbush’s summer-ending precursor to The Clifford Ball.

    @snowbank – Doesn’t ring a bell.

  2. gavinsdad Says:

    how about spare ribs in a foil lined bag?

  3. TreasureReprise Says:

    Who’s got my heady duck sauce?

  4. BingosBrother Says:

    DC AV is a 4 night run boi!

  5. albert walker Says:

    ya if I wasn’t expecting great things from the west coast drops in leg 2 I’d probably fold and hit the creek

    just too much damn midwestern highway drivin

    what is AV to creek like 7 hours or something?

  6. bearito Says:

    Listening back to the Greek Simple

    Ridiculous texture, tone, and precision from Red

  7. gavinsdad Says:

    dont know it means anything seeing what we currently know but my friend (not “my source”) who still has an all access laminate in the sober Trey era just texted me the dates we’re all talking about. he hasn’t been wrong.

  8. BingosBrother Says:

    about that. pit stop at home for this old fuck. although in 04 it took me 7 hours just to get to DC from chi w/ traffic. good thing we left at noon. ain’t been back since and that place is magic for me, so I’m not missing this year.

  9. bearito Says:

    200 and change from AV to DC

  10. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    09 drove to AV at night right after the DC show

  11. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    10 not 09 I mean

  12. Kaveh Says:

    Off subject: But here you go Palmer:

    The NFL opener will be played Wed., Sept. 5th instead of Thurs. to avoid conflict with President Obama’s speech at DNC

  13. tela'smuff Says:

    that drive from DC to AV really sucks, and it’s rather light compared to what i did out west last summer. but driving through IN, then the Chicago area really sucks. especially after being all spun out in the corn. always liked that feeling though once you entered WI.

    i like the day off breaks allowed in a West Coast run. gives time to collect yourself, clear out space for additional sweet tart storage. stop at a microbrewery or two.

    Shoreline>Russian River>Silver Moon>Gorge>Bozeman>Dicks sounds like a nice pre-baby #2 adventure.

  14. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Kaveh- Giants vs. Packers… mark it . Only other option is Saints, but i think they go Pack.

  15. Mr. Palmer Says:

    8/17-18 Phish at Bill Graham.

  16. Kaveh Says:

    @Palmer: I hope not; I like games like that to be played later in the season. We will wait for those dates too.

  17. Guyute711 Says:

    Awe, the speech is on Thursday, that is gonna make Friday rough after drunkenly rabble rousing outside the venue while he speaks.

  18. Mr. Palmer Says:

    kaveh- these are the Giants opponents next season. So it has to one of the home games. Packers would be the logical pick from a NBC/ $$$ aspect.

  19. Multibeast Says:

    8/17-18 Phish at Bill Graham.
    ^Huh?

  20. bearito Says:

    Those big games early on really set the pace for a shootout season imo

    Would have loved for the Saints to take home the W against the Pack last year in that opening game but it was not meant to be

    At home in the Dome, that game may have gone a little differently ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Saints. Superbowl. Mark it.

  21. Kaveh Says:

    @Mr. P:

    Yep I know the Packers are in NY next year. But, still I would like to see a game of that magnitude played later in the season; when both teams are full throttle. But I do understand your point about NBC and $$$$$.

  22. Mike in Austin Says:

    I still there there is a space on the 26th for Phish at DTE. Nugent is playing two days later. My guess for the bonus.

  23. Kaveh Says:

    8/17-18 Phish at Bill Graham.

    ^ Just heard something very similar

  24. Mike in Austin Says:

    I suck at typing.

  25. joemeg Says:

    8/17-18 Phish at Bill Graham

    I heard the same thing yesterday, but not the specific dates, just that leg 2 would start there.
