Teases:

Notes: After Whipping Post, Trey welcomed the crowd to the second set and apologized for taking such a long break. The comments were in reference to their last show in the Keene area (2/22/90), at which heavy smoking and/or a fire alarm resulted in the show being aborted after the first set. Possum ended with a Popeye theme tease from Trey. This show marked the first and only known performance of Metal Bagel Death, which was a dedication to some friends who had recently opened Keene Bagel Works across the street. YEM contained a Flash Light tease from Mike. Trey briefly reprised Caravan after If I Only Had a Brain and teased Simple Gifts in the intro to Contact.

Notes: After Reba, the crowd was chanting "cheeseburger." Fish and Trey subsequently went into a rap about burgers. Trey dedicated Forbin's to the Colonial (Bruce Hampton). Forbin's was then performed with a variety of lyric substitutions of Col. (Bruce) Hampton for Col Forbin. Rocky Top through Antelope featured the “Reverend” Jeff Mosier on banjo; Antelope also featured Oteil Burbridge on bass. As Fishman took the stage during HYHU, the crowd chanted for Fee.

Teases:

Notes: It is unconfirmed whether Fire closed the first set or was even performed at all. Trey referred to HYHU as the “Henrietta Theme Song.” After Page played several measures of the second HYHU in the setlist, Fish said “There’s one more verse to this,” and then they played the final verse of Love You. Fish also continued to play vacuum during the third and final HYHU of the set, which also featured Trey repeating “Henrietta!” over and over again, singing it along to the music’s conclusion. In response to a fan requesting more Syd Barrett after the last HYHU, Fish spoke the first few words of Bike. Trey teased Call to the Post before YEM (as Fish was returning to his drum kit after HYHU). Before Contact, Fish said “We would like to perform for you now the bass-player-is-taking-a-leak-song.” Fish then dedicated Contact to Paul Languedoc. Also before Contact, Page told the crowd that their bass player (whom Trey then referred to as “Michael Cactin”) would become 25 years old at midnight. Trey added that Mike would now play everyone a love song.

Teases:
· Buried Alive tease in Stash
· Buried Alive tease in La Grange

Notes: This show was Phish's first public gig in New Jersey and featured many references to the state. Trey started the show by saying he was born and raised in New Jersey. Before Uncle Pen, Trey said that this was sort of a dream come true for him and Page, who grew up in New Jersey, adding it was the first time they'd ever played in the state.  Trey said "we'll do a little song here that brings us back to our New Jersey roots here... it's an old Bill Monroe song." Mike added that it was "a song about Pendleton Vandiver, Bill Monroe's uncle. It's true. He's dead." Stash was played by request for "Big Phil" Muller, and was preceded by Fishman playing the Charlie Chan signal. Fishman said "he wrote it," Trey said "probably because I wrote it," and Mike added "I think it sucks. Essentially." Regarding Stash, Trey said "I collaborated on this song writing the music end of it and the lyrics were written by another native New Jerseyian, Tom Marshall, who isn't here tonight, unfortunately, because he's gotta be at work tomorrow programming computers." Fishman added "for his dad" and Trey responded "My dad, he works for my dad. Keeping it all in the family here." Stash and La Grange contained Buried Alive teases. Prior to Landlady, Trey said they were going to play it in honor of their first gig in New Jersey. Mike introduced Destiny Unbound as a song he wrote about his Uncle Pendleton Vandiver. Prior to Buried Alive, Trey asked for a show of hands from the sparse crowd as to how many people in the room were actually from New Jersey and said "we're going to play a song that we wrote that we think captures the spirit of New Jersey," calling it "New Jersey And You, Perfect Together," which is the state's tourism slogan (a joke he later referenced in Golgi and Contact). Trey encouraged the crowd to "sing along when the chorus comes, just like it's a big commercial, because we'll be filming this for the next New Jersey commercial." During I Didn't Know, Trey introduced Fishman as "Zero Man" and the song's lyrics were changed to Pardon Me "Zero Man." Before Contact, Trey introduced his dog Marley as "the 5th member of the band who doesn't usually get as much recognition... and we're going to play Marley's favorite song -- at this moment in time."
