The Wetlands Preserve, New York, NY
 Fishman drum solo.
 First known Phish performance.
Notes: The setlist for the first set is incomplete. Melt contained a Fishman drum solo. The show featured the first known Phish performance of Auld Lang Syne. The opening act was Indecision.
This show was part of the "1989 Tour."
AnywaysÖ Gin was ok, not the best Iíve heard, but itís still pretty new. Melt had a drum solo in it tonight and Trey raged his solo pretty good. Another Ya Mar tonight and this one has no Leo call from Mike before Pageís solo. It doesnít seem like anybody is ready as Trey jumps into Suzy, which was just average. Foam was not very tight tonight, but itís a hard song to play. My Sweet One was pretty good and La Grange wasnít too bad, but nothing outstanding from either of them. The tape speed switches to normal tuning for an ok Lawn Boy. Golgi was good and rocking for a set closer.
Mikeís Groove gets the encore spot tonight and all of it was reasonably well played, although a little tired sounding.
The playing wasnít too bad overall tonight, but the recording leaves a bit to be desired so Iíll go with three stars because itís just pretty average for an í89 show.
