A Halloween costume contest preceded the second set. Buried Alive included DEG teases and Possum contained Charlie Chan and Oom Pa Pa signals. YEM contained an appropriate Munsters theme tease from Mike; the ensuing vocal jam was based on Night in Tunisia. Tweezer contained Heartbreaker teases. This show was webcast in the weeks following Halloween 1999, as the band did not play on Halloween that year. It was subsequently released in mp3 format via emusic.com.

Review by EducateFright

EducateFright As was rather typical for '90, the band's technical prowess really shines throughout this show. All the tunes on the set list with distinctly demanding composed excursions are played with excellent precision. If, for some reason (and I shall refrain from inquiring why) you are on a quest to seek out the best Ass Festival (er, I mean, Asse Festival), then look no further. Well, ok, I haven't listened to all the Asse Festivals that Phish has ever played, but this one sounds pristinely perfect to my ears. Along the same lines, Oh Kee Pah > Suzy is another highlight. If you've never heard a '90 Tweezer, or are already a fan of such things, then you'll certainly want to hear this version. The BBFCFM that appropriately caps off the show (it was Halloween, after all) is also one of the better versions I've heard: it's blessed with an extra dose of horror-show chills, screams, and terrors. I like it!
