Teases:

Notes: This show featured the first performances of Tweezer Reprise, Guelah Papyrus and Chalk Dust Torture. Page and Trey teased Dixie during Reba. The Mango Song was played for the first time since August 19, 1989 (193 shows), though Trey curiously introduced it as being “new.” The second set was cut short due to Brown University’s curfew; after Cavern, a representative from Brown (Trey: “I don’t want to tell them, you tell them!”) informed the crowd that the show had to end by midnight and that the next song had to be the last. During a pause in Letter to Jimmy Page, Trey noted: “we’re not going to forget that this got cut short, and the next time we’re back in the area we’re going to make it up to you.” Before the hasty encore Trey remarked: “we’re going to have to watch out for the ‘big hook!'”

This show featured the first known Phish performance of Let's Go, which replaced HYHU. After the second Let's Go, Trey introduced the crew (with Page providing "Charge!" teases) and dedicated Mike's Song to "Mindy" and the "spirit of Ian in the back of the room." Pete Schall's name was spoken in the Mike's intro. Page teased Fishin' Hole (aka The Andy Griffith Show theme) during Hydrogen. Trey quoted and teased Groove is in the Heart in Weekapaug Groove. A recording of Antelope through Rocky Top also circulates as 9/17/90, but it is believed that 2/4/91 is the correct date for this portion of the setlist.

Trey briefly started Horn before Harry Hood, but abandoned it. Before Terrapin, Trey announced that Fishman would be “bringing out the big, heavy artillery” for the people in Keene. The “artillery” was Fishman’s new vacuum, which made its debut at this show. Fish noted that “if I bleed during this song, that’ll just be part of the effects.” Inspired by his new instrument, Fish took an exceedingly spacey solo during Terrapin, complete with ersatz wolf howls, before singing the final verse through the vacuum.

Notes: During I Didn’t Know, Trey commented that this was Phish’s first show in Tennessee, and dedicated Fish’s vacuum solo to Dr. Jack McConnell and other friends in the audience. After Cavern, Trey mentioned that James Brown got out on parole, which caused Fish to comment that a cease-fire was also called that day in Iraq. “Don’t tell me this wasn’t planned,” he insisted. Lawn Boy featured a Trey guitar solo. Rocky Top was a seemingly obvious choice as closer for the first Volunteer State show.

Notes: This setlist may be incomplete and out of order.  It is unclear whether this was a one or two set show. Phish performed on this evening after Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit ("ARU"), so it may have been only a one set gig. The only copy of this show that currently circulates seems to have a cut after Suzy, and the BBFCFM cuts.  Suzy contained a Stairway to Heaven tease from Trey as well as an Auld Lang Syne tease. ARU's Oteil Burbridge on bass, Jimmy Herring on guitar, and Jeff Sipe on trombone joined Phish for My Sweet One and Tweezer -> Dave's Energy Guide -> Tweezer.

(He also noted that he prefers to dance while listening to live music, while Page prefers to sit.) Trey added that he did not want anyone to feel uncomfortable about dancing in the aisles.

Possum included Charlie Chan and Oom Pa Pa signals as well as a Dave’s Energy Guide tease, while Weekapaug included more DEG teases as well as Tweezer teases from Trey. Trey introduced the Giant Country Horns at the end of Antelope and during BBFCFM. There was a long wait during HYHU for Fishman, who was apparently in the bathroom. Hood included full-band Jeopardy! theme teases. This show ran much longer than scheduled (at one point, when Trey noted that they should wind up the show, a fan urged the band to “fuck the clock”), prompting Trey to beg the crowd to leave in a timely and orderly fashion after the encore.

Brother was dedicated to “the guy who offered us $10,000 to play a different song.” In the HYHU intro, Fishman said “I hate this fucking song,” that the only reason the band plays the song is because he hates it and added “All I have do in this band is say I hate something, and it’ll be done forever.” Trey told the crowd that HYHU is the Henrietta theme precisely because Fish hates it. “It used to be ‘La Bamba,’” he noted, prompting Mike to play a bit of La Bamba. The HYHU outro featured Fish on trombone and later telling the crowd "you paid for this, this is what you bought." Trey said "If you only knew what a nightmare that was for poor Fish, having to listen to that song" and Fish responded with “they just do it out of HATE.” Trey asked who could tell him who wrote that song, and a fan answered correctly. Trey said the fan won the $10,000 the other guy was going to give them to a play a song and Page said the fan won a date with Fish, with Trey adding "and you can guarantee that he'll be late." After Golgi, Trey thanked the crowd, saying "we'll be right back with more songs that Fish hates, more songs that we love, and more songs that people are willing to pay $10,000 to hear." Trey introduced Page as Leon before his piano solos in My Sweet One and Rocky Top. Before Fishman's trombone solo in I Didn't Know, Trey mentioned the last time they played in the area (see 4/11/91), they made Fish get up and tell a joke (The Prison Joke) that was "absolutely the stupidest joke ever" and that he (Trey) wasn't going tell the punchline. Trey went on to explain that most people around here thought Fish was a pretty bad joke teller and he wanted to give him a chance to redeem himself.  Fish's joke was "Why did the Siamese twins go to England? To let the other one drive for a while." Page also teased HYHU while Trey talked. Adeline was sung from the balcony without microphones to open the encore. Possum contained two Charlie Chan signals as well as Simpsons and Random Laugh signals in its intro and subsequently contained Rock On (David Essex) teases.

Notes: The first set was almost a complete Gamehendge narration and was the second time the saga was performed live. Forbin's through McGrupp featured narration between the songs. This was the first Gamehendge since March 12, 1988 (443 shows). Reba contained a DEG tease from Trey. After Love You, Trey introduced Fish as "Hankrietta" and "the shortest man in rock and roll." The Bowie intro included a hi-hat “solo” from Fishman, while Trey explained how Fishman’s hi-hat serves as his escape from reality and joked that if the fans wanted to come to the next gig, they'd be introduced to Fish's ice bell. The Bowie intro also included three Charlie Chan signals and Oom Pa Pa, Simpsons, and Popeye signals (but, notably, the band responded to the Popeye signal by singing a random note, which is the Random Note signal's "secret language").

Notes: Trey said he wrote Foam under Ernie Stires's wing and that Ernie taught him to write in that particular style. He dedicated Foam to Ernie's two children Ernie and Liz (both in attendance) and to Ernie as well. Adeline was performed without microphones. Brother was dedicated to Page's brother and Mike's brother (who were standing somewhere in the room), with Trey joking that it was "written to sort of describe their personalities... sort of a combination of the two." Guelah was introduced as a song "about a mother." He explained that this was about Dave's (Dave Abrahams's) mother, Guelah, who used to come in when he and Dave were writing songs and that when "things were getting fun," she would knock on and open the door and pull Dave out into the hall, hence the line "and through the bedroom door intrude a fretful frown and spoiled the mood. And though I never really stand that tall, she tilt my frame, she watched me fall." Fishman was introduced during I Didn't Know as "Filling in for Showboat Gertrude... Zero Man!" Walk Away was played for the first time since October 20, 1990 (123 shows). Mo' Better Blues was teased prior to Squirming Coil.

Notes: Memories was performed without microphones. The vocal jam in YEM repeated "a slice of pizza". During the costume contest, there was a brief full-band tease of Jesus Just Left Chicago, inspired by a fan in a Jesus costume (with a cross on his back!). The first round of the contest closed with a rendition of Can't Turn You Loose. After each unsuccessful entrant was eliminated, Trey forced them to stage-dive.  HYHU was also played briefly during the contest. First prize - free admission to all Phish shows for one year - was shared by The Bergen County Woman Cop and Captain Bong Hit. This show marked the first appearance of Wait, which was played three times during the show. During the final Wait, before Bowie, the audience was chanting “Fuck you!” in response. Bowie contained two Charlie Chan signals and Random Laugh and Oom Pa Pa signals during the jam. I Didn’t Know featured a vacuum solo by “Showboat Gertrude,” which continued well into the final verse of the song.

After Pusherman (Curtis Mayfield), Trey explained that Hold Your Head Up became the Henrietta theme (prompting teases of HYHU by Page and Mike) because Fishman hates that song more than any song ever written except La Bamba (which was then also teased by Page and Mike); the Pusherman theme was offered because Fishman likes that song. Trey noted that Stash was a request from some friends of theirs on the phish.net. Trey explained phish.net and that the band was honoring requests.

Notes: Prior to the start of the show, Fishman announced that Phish had changed their name to Mrs. Pizza Shit.

Poor Heart and Hood also had bandmembers calling each other "Mrs. Pizza Shit." Page teased Blue Monk during the Rhombus Narration. In Lawn Boy, Page referred to Trey as "Lawn Boy" prior to him taking a guitar solo. Before Love You, Fishman apologized for not wearing his Zero Man outfit, explaining that he didn't have his jock strap with him. He said that the last time he was there some girl said "Hey you can see his balls!" and so that was it for Zero Man without the jock strap. Possum contained two Charlie Chan signals and Simpsons and Popeye signals (but, notably, the band responded to the Popeye signal by singing a random note, which is the Random Note signal's "secret language").
