Harpua included Funkytown teases and 'A' Train contained a Dixie tease from Trey. The band launched into the second set-opening Whole Lotta Love Jam as the DJ had been spinning the original Zeppelin version. The opening act was The Aquarium Rescue Unit.

Review by nadslibra

nadslibra As much as I have been enjoying 3.0, I have started to listen to old shows, I attended and remember the OMG feeling when it was so new and fresh

For me this show will always be 5 stars my first show!!

As NY deadhead, you kinda sorta heard about this band "granola" (what they used to call jam bands band) called Phish
seen the t-shirt at many dead shows

A buddy encouraged me to come along as he knew I loved Dead, Zappa, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, etc....
Had know idea what I was in for !! They opened w a song about Pond Scum???? Bouncing on trampolines while playing, playing the vacuum playing while wearing goggles and and dress, playing the trombone, sweating my ass off, dancing my head off- Led Zeppelin on steroids jamming , FOAM - the first time you hear this song you'll never be the same, and jamming Alvenu Malkanu - seriously a Passover prayer??? a song about Suzy Greenberg , okay I'm Jewish and apparently so are they, the all while dosing my head off

Yes, I was hooked- no pun intended

Oh the Wetlands..... one place that really was as good as you remember

Blues Traveler for $9.00 on random Tuesday night smoking a big fat joint in the basement on the bean bag chairs and a bj from some kinda hot , maybe not, deadhead chick from Clarkson , wherever the hell that is.... The Wetlands

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu As is common with '90 and '91, I think this show is solid, albeit a touch average. Possum is kind of so-so, Tweezer is solid but average, and there's some weird stuff going on at the beginning of Mike's. You've got some nice segues in set II, including the Whole Lotta Love Jam > Hood, Avenu Malkenu > la Grange, and especially a nice Fee -> Foam. The Foam is pretty good, the Hood works its way up to a nice ending, the 'Lope is fairly solid, but Trey kind of ends the jam too early and leaves everyone else hanging. All in all, though, just a well-played, average show. 3 Stars.
