Antelope contained an Earache My Eye tease from Page and Nellie Kane teases from Mike. Weekapaug included Lion Sleeps Tonight teases.

Trey felt so generous during the trampoline giveaway before Sweet Adeline that he decided to give Fish away as well, pushing him into the crowd.

Before Wilson, Trey brought a fan named "Wesley" on-stage and wished him a happy birthday. Trey proceeded to dedicate the song to him.

Wilson, My Sweet One, and the YEM vocal jam contained Mrs. Pizza Shit references. YEM was preceded by introductions of lots of friends and family, and was halted and restarted by Trey so that he can confirm that Phish had indeed changed their name to “Mrs. Pizza Shit.” YEM contained a Brady Bunch theme tease from Mike. The subsequent vocal jam contained William Tell Overture quotes. At one point during the show, Trey even grabbed a slice of pizza from a passing waitress and used it to strum the guitar. Sanity was teased before and during Terrapin.
Prior to the start of the show, Fish 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, Fish 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").
Brother was dedicated to Trey’s sister, Kristy. Dinner and a Movie, Cantaloupe, and Tweezer contained Smells Like Teen Spirit quotes. Cantaloupe was played for the first time since March 11, 1990 (222 shows). ‘A’ Train included Frosty the Snowman and We Wish You a Merry Christmas teases and a Charlie Chan signal at the end. The YEM vocal jam was based on "chicken sandwich" and burgers.
Terrapin was announced as the “restrained version” and Fish as the “Master of Restraint.” In response, Fish sang only one out of every few words to the song. Trey also clarified during the show that Colonel Forbin is not to be mistaken for Colonel (Bruce) Hampton. Bowie was preceded by a Funk #49 tease. The Bowie intro included HYHU teases, four Charlie Chan signals and Popeye, Simpsons, Oom Pa Pa, and Random Laugh signals.

This show featured the first Rhombus Narration since April 6, 1990 (209 shows). Cavern contained a Simpsons signal. Memories was performed without microphones. Llama was preceded by a Gamehendge narration. Duke's Place (Duke Ellington) is listed as the encore on the master tape in the archives. The encore is not on the tape, so this may be an inside joke, a comment on the house music played post-show, or reference to Phish's first known performance of the song. The soundcheck's Dog Log contained additional lyrics about Colorado promoter and friend "Dandy" Don Strasburg. Information about the soundcheck and possible encore comes from phish.com.
Trey and Mike teased Curtain several times before the start of the show. Before Sparkle, Trey thanked the Atlanta, GA crowd for their general attentiveness, noting that Artis the Spoonman always said: “the best thing you can give to another person is your attention.” Mike welcomed his cousins who were in attendance. Sweet Adeline was performed without microphones. Tweezer contained several quick Band on the Run teases from Trey. The HYHU preceding Terrapin featured Trey and Page singing “Henrietta” vocals.

Paul and Silas was dedicated to “Jason” on his birthday. Weekapaug included Charlie Chan and Simpsons signals and an adventurous, off-center jam segment culminating with Trey chanting “a slice of pizza!” and “a bucket of lard!” The final chorus was even sung as “I’m sharing in a bucket of lard.” During the soundcheck, The Dude of Life joined the band for Family Picture, T.V. Show, and Crimes of the Mind, and Camel Walk contained a Stash tease from Trey. This show was not at the College Station Theater; that show was on March 8, 1991.

Rocky Top was announced as the ARU’s favorite song. The second set of this show was remastered and released as part of the archival New Orleans Relief Download release to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans Relief is available at LivePhish.com with all proceeds benefiting the Tipitina's Foundation and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation. The Aquarium Rescue Unit was the opening act.
This show, with Aquarium Rescue Unit scheduled to open, was cancelled. Some sources indicate that it was due to a problem with the venue’s roof.
The YEM vocal jam included the themes “Big Poop Slide” and “Step in the Pile.”
Divided Sky was dedicated to Sun Ra. 'A' Train contained Dixie teases from Trey. Tweezer included Wait quotes from Trey. After Pusherman (Curtis Mayfield), Trey explained that Hold Your Head Up became the Henrietta theme (prompting teases of HYHU by Page and Mike) because Fish 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 Fish 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.
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.
A complete recording of this show does not circulate, and so the setlist is unconfirmed. In the "jam" that is believed to have started the encore and HYHU, Fish played guitar. Before HYHU concluded, Fish and Page told jokes. Fire was dedicated to “Ralph.”
I Didn't Know featured Fish on trombone. The Bowie intro contained two Charlie Chan signals as well as Oom Pa Pa and Simpsons signals. The lyrics to Gin were altered to reference a hot tub, referencing some friends who had partied at the hotel hot tub earlier that day. Harpua included On Top of Old Smokey teases from Mike.

Before Tela, Trey explained Gamehendge. Sweet Adeline was performed without microphones.
Trey shaved his head and beard the day before this show and was apparently the butt of several jokes from friends and fans. The vocal jam in You Enjoy Myself was based on The Ocean (Led Zeppelin) and eventually developed into Fish singing Setting Sail while the rest of the band scatted and laughed.
Before the first set, Trey introduced Mike as “Lou Reed.” After Foam, Trey mentioned how happy he was to be playing at Prescott College, which, he announced, is very similar to Goddard. I Didn't Know featured Fish on trombone. The Bowie intro contained three Charlie Chan signals as well as Oom Pa Pa, Simpsons, and Random Laugh signals. Bowie subsequently contained another Charlie Chan signal and a Tritone Down signal during the jam and maniacal screaming from Trey and Mike during the end segment. After Bowie, Trey introduced “Fern,” who read poetry during the setbreak. Fish was introduced as “Showboat Gertrude” before Terrapin; he explained that the name is derived from that of the Indian singer Shobha Gurtu. Tube was played for the first time since November 16, 1990 (111 shows). Memories and Sweet Adeline were performed without microphones.
After a false start to the song, the first verse of My Sweet One was performed a cappella. The entire song was subsequently performed in its usual rendition. During Terrapin, Mimi Fishman substituted for Fish on vacuum. She was announced as “Showboat Gertrude’s Mother.”
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." Fish was introduced during I Didn't Know as "Filling in for Showboat Gertrude... Zero Man!"

Harry Hood contained a Dave’s Energy Guide tease from Trey. Small Fish was the opening act. The soundcheck's My Sweet One was performed a cappella.
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 (442 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 Fish, while Trey explained how Fish’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"). Carolina was performed without microphones.
This show featured a guest appearance by Artis the Spoonman for Brother and from Brain through Rocky Top. Also, someone (perhaps Trey) played a strange pipe or flute during Brain.
Chalk Dust contained Charlie Chan and Simpsons signals and the David Bowie intro contained two Charlie Chan signals as well as Simpsons and Oom Pa Pa signals. There was also a quick Dave's Energy Guide tease by Trey near the end of the song.

This show featured some great stage banter. Brother was dedicated to “the guy who offered us $10,000 to play a different song.” In the HYHU intro, Fish 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 Fish'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.

After Brother, Trey wished a happy birthday to “Dmitri.”
This show marked the first performance of Glide. The final verse of Runaway Jim was omitted. Trey teased portions of Esther during the Buried Alive jam segment. The second set was preceded by an announcement that cars blocking the alley outside would be towed. It led to some humorous vocal interplay among the band members. Before his vacuum solo in I Didn’t Know, Fish was introduced as “The Earl of Sandwich.” The start of the YEM vocal jam contained many Homer Simpson "D'ohs." Fish quoted Setting Sail at the end of the vocal jam.

There was a long wait during HYHU for Fish, 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.
This show featured The Giant Country Horns on Suzy, Alumni, Avenu, Melt through Frankenstein, Divided Sky, Flat Fee, Lizards, Stash, If I Only Had a Brain, YEM, and Landlady.

Trey flubbed the slow, middle section of Divided Sky and humorously remarked that it was “the jazz version.” Stash contained a Buried Alive tease from Trey. Brain was preceded by Happy Birthday teases and was dedicated to "Erica;" YEM subsequently included a brief reprise of the tease from Trey as well as a Chameleon tease by the Horns. The YEM vocal jam featured Chain Gang (Otis Redding) quotes from Fish.

Trey announced that the second set would be their last until the summer, as they were going in to record an album. Technical difficulties necessitated a short break after McGrupp. This show included some humorous stage banter about prep school headmasters and the like.
Possum contained a Stash tease from Trey and the Bowie intro included Guelah and ‘A’ Train teases. Even though there was a show the next day, before Foam, Trey noted that this gig would be the last until July since the band was going into the studio to cut an album. Before Dinner and a Movie, Fish noted: “this is a song about America’s favorite pre-nuptial ritual.”
A blackout occurred during Chalk Dust. The drum solo and the ensuing Mr. P.C. featured Carl Gerhard on trumpet, who also performed on ‘A’ Train, Magilla, Cavern, and Lawn Boy. Mr. P.C. was performed for the first time since November 11, 1988 (335 shows) and included a Spider-Man theme tease from Gerhard. The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday was introduced as “The Old Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday.” This show fell on Page’s 28th birthday, a point noted repeatedly throughout the gig. I Didn't Know featured Fish on trombone. Fluffhead was unfinished; the rest of the band sung Happy Birthday to Page first over the Fluffhead melody, followed by the Happy Birthday melody.

Magilla contained a full-band Flintstones theme tease. Mississippi Queen was teased during Fish's vacuum solo in Bike. The pause in BBFCFM featured a final rendition of Happy Birthday and the presentation of a cake; Fish then responded to the “how old are you?” crowd chants by counting off BBFCFM: “I’ll tell you how old he is: 1-2-3-4!”
Magilla featured a guest appearance from Bryan Smith on trombone and a Rhythm-A-Ning tease from Trey. Adeline was chosen as the encore because of curfew issues.
Stash, Destiny Unbound, Llama, Magilla, Mike's Song, AC/DC Bag, Rocky Top, and Run Like An Antelope featured Dave Grippo on saxophone.

Tweezer contained an In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida tease from Page and Trey briefly teased Buried Alive in Chalk Dust. YEM featured Tom Baggott on harmonica and a tease of Flash Light by Mike in the bass and drums segment of the song. After BBFCFM, Fish referred to Trey as “Eddie Van Anastasio." Donna Lee, Mike's > Hydrogen > Weekapaug, and Tela used to appear in this setlist between Reba and Oh Kee Pa in the second set, but because these songs do not appear in circulating recordings of this show, we have removed them from the setlist.
Ya Mar contained a tease of the Brazil theme. Page's solo in McGrupp was briefly accompanied by Fish on vacuum. "Bucket of lard" was said repeatedly in the Mike's Song intro.
After Divided Sky, Trey spoke about how “exceptional” the room was, and how “inspiring” it was to play in.  He explained that the band had engaged in “philosophical discussions” about standing versus sitting at shows.  He said that some people may prefer to sit rather than stand and dance, and that the band hoped that everyone would be considerate of each other. (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.

The joke basically went: "So there's this guy who's walking down the street, and he sees this dog laying there licking his balls, and he's talking to his friend and says 'boy, I sure wish I could do that,' and the friend says 'don't you think you ought to pet him first?'"
Harpua was played for the first time since June 9, 1990 (103 shows).

Tweezer contained Walk This Way and Yield Not to Temptation teases. Brain was performed as a “special treat” for the audience. Fish sang the final verse through the vacuum, creating an excellent echo effect. Ryth McFeud was the opening act.

Antelope contained a vocal jam in the intro and a Jean Pierre tease from Trey. YEM contained Who Knows teases. The YEM vocal jam was partially based on burgers. Before Terrapin, Fish was introduced as “the late Henrietta,” and then commented that he is no longer Henrietta, but has not yet thought of a new name.

A show was originally scheduled for this date and venue; it appears that it was postponed until Monday, March 25, 1991.

Uncle Pen was introduced as a band favorite and dedicated to a fan in the crowd. Trey repeated the first line of Esther several times, as if he had forgotten the rest of the lyrics.

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. Trey teased the Popeye theme in YEM. 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. Trey quoted lyrics from MacArthur Park (Jimmy Webb) during the DEG, which was played for the first time since March 1, 1989 (272 shows).
This setlist was adopted from fan reports and is unconfirmed and possibly incomplete. Phish may have played two sets. If they did, the setlist for set II is unknown. Col. Bruce Hampton & The Aquarium Rescue Unit opened. All information for this show is from phish.com.

This was a one set show opening for The Grapes. This information is from phish.com.

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. Rocky Top was a seemingly obvious choice as closer for the first Volunteer State show.
The band took the opportunity to introduce themselves before Love You, which also included a fun monitor board solo.
The YEM vocal jam was based on burgers. The HYHU intro and outro and the intro to Antelope included Let's Go teases. Love You and the Whole Lotta Love Jam featured Fish on trombone.

Magilla contained a Flintstones theme tease from Trey. The Janglers were the opening act.
There were some fun references to New York, including a line from New York New York, at the start of Llama. The first Let's Go started as HYHU. This Possum had some early Secret Language, including a Random Note signal, as well as Funk #49 teases.
Trey teased Buried Alive in Divided Sky. Bowie contained Sounds of Silence teases in Fish’s high hat intro, and had a silent jam near the end of the jam segment. Ya Mar contained a brief Happy Birthday tease from Trey. Bag contained a Bonanza theme tease from Trey was also unusually adventurous, with three dead stops during the jam segment and uncommon dissonance. Trey briefly started Horn before Harry Hood, but abandoned it. Before Terrapin, Trey announced that Fish would be “bringing out the big, heavy artillery” for the people in Keene. The “artillery” was Fish’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.
McGrupp featured a Jeopardy! theme tease from Page. During I Didn't Know, Fish's family minivan that the band had been traveling in was given away to a fan in the audience.

Destiny Unbound was jokingly announced as “Lizards.” Sloth was played in response to an audience request. The YEM vocal jam closed with a quote of the Bugs Bunny Show theme (“On with the Show, This Is It”).
Uncle Pen and My Sweet One through Rocky Top featured Russell Flanagan on fiddle. Trey quoted Fixin' to Die in the ending chorus of Antelope. Trey flubbed the lyrics to Cavern. 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.    
David Bowie contained Charlie Chan and Tritone Down signals and was preceded by an Entrance of the Gladiators tease from Trey. Suzy contained a Popeye theme tease from Trey. Fish teased Cavern prior to Melt.
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 September 16, 1989 (182 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 setlist is unverified and all but certainly incomplete.
