I had driven back from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz after the Anaconda show, and only got a few hours of sleep before getting up to "rally the troops."¯ After the Anaconda show, I was anxious to get everyone on the bus, so I packed my car with heads and drove up to the city for the show. Not one of the five of us had tickets, but the show was far from sold out so we were all able to score tickets at the box office. Gordo and Fishman were hanging out in front of the Warfield, so we started talking about the Anaconda show. They both agreed that it was the best show of the tour (so far) and that they both had a great time.
When we finally made it inside the Warfield, the place was pretty empty. The whole show was GA so you could go wherever you wanted. We chose to sit in the balcony, which remained mostly empty throughout the night. Widespread Panic opened with a set that lasted around an hour. It's still the only WSP tape that I own, and the best set I ever heard them play. The place was on fire, and we were really looking forward to what Phish would do.
Again, another solid show, still on many people's "must have"¯ list of shows. I don't remember much specifically about the show itself (I let myself get pretty "out there"¯ for this show), except at the beginning of the second set they brought out a bathtub and had various people get in and out of the tub during "Brother"¯. "YEM"¯ and my first "Fluffhead"¯ were amazing, and so was the "Tweezer"¯ sandwich.
We went back to Santa Cruz that night, brains still fried, to get ready for the next show: a free one at Stanford the next day.
