Teases:
· Tweezer Reprise vocal jam in You Enjoy Myself

Notes: Phish introduced two more concert debuts: Pebbles and Marbles and All of These Dreams. Trey restarted YEM after a sloppy attempt at the composed beginning section. One portion of the YEM vocal jam was based on the name “George Takei” (the actor who played Mr. Sulu on Star Trek) and another was based on the melody to Tweezer Reprise. Lyrics in Makisupa referenced “fatty,” “Waffle House,” and “Hooters.” The end of Possum included bizarre on-stage antics with Page playing Trey’s guitar from his seat, Trey playing Mike’s bass, and Mike using the “B” and “Ah” cymbals normally reserved for Cracklin’ Rosie. This improvisational Contact continued the joke of mock introductions, as Trey introduced “Al Gore.”

A portion of the Piper jam was based around the chords to Oye Como Va. Trey subsequently teased Oye Como Va, as well as Another One Bites the Dust, during YEM. Carolina was played for the first time since November 18, 1998 (144 shows). The YEM vocal jam included a Daniel Saw the Stone tease.

Trey announced the prize was a private vacuum solo from Fishman to Dan. As homage to the movie Old School (which also featured Dust in the Wind), Trey encouraged the crowd to “earmuff” it while Dan received his prize. To bring the rest of the crowd in on the joke, Phish subsequently debuted an abbreviated version of Dust in the Wind. The song began as a solo vacuum piece but Trey jumped in on vocals to assist the struggling Fishman. Disease contained Psycho Killer teases and was unfinished.

Notes: This was the first show of the IT festival. Ya Mar, DWD, and Seven Below were unfinished. Reba included tease of the intro to Night Speaks to a Woman in the pause before the whistling. Birds was followed by a “Meatstick” chant from the crowd, prompting Trey to note that the band would “like to honor” the request. After a long pause, Trey commented, “We’re taking our sweet time up here because…we have no place to go for two days.” DWD contained a San-Ho-Zay tease from Trey. NICU ended with a bass solo from Mike at Trey’s request (“Play it, Cactus!”). Seven Below contained an On Your Way Down tease, Scents and Subtle Sounds included Seven Below teases. Before Dog Log, Trey remarked that the band couldn’t figure out what to play, and noted how, on this tour, the band made a conscious effort to not think about what songs they were going to play next. The fourth set “Tower Jam” found Phish playing on top the old air traffic control tower near the concert field. The set consisted of roughly an hour’s worth of unscripted jam material, with no notable teases or jams present. While Phish jammed, Chris Kuroda illuminated the tower’s interior and exterior with a light show and dancers suspended by wires around the side of the tower performed on the structure.

· Wilson quote in Mike's Song
· Seven Below tease in Weekapaug Groove
· Frankenstein and Daniel Saw the Stone teases in You Enjoy Myself
· Under Pressure and It's Ice teases in Run Like an Antelope

Notes: This was the second show of the IT festival. Chalk Dust contained DEG teases from Mike. The ending of Chalk Dust was performed at near double-time. Trey omitted a verse in Wilson. Afterwards, he announced that it was the “shortest version ever” and dedicated it to Phish archivist Kevin Shapiro. Trey then humorously announced that the band would next play the “longest Bittersweet Motel” (traditionally one of the shortest songs in the Phish canon). The crowd responded with a passionate “Fluffhead” chant, but Trey responded: “Mike says no” (prompting laughs from the other band members). Appropriately, Trey launched into Mike’s Song but Mike had the last laugh: during the Mike’s Song intro, Mike sang his “Hendge” lyric that had been omitted from Wilson. Weekapaug included a Seven Below tease. YEM contained the event-appropriate lyrical change “Boy, Man, God, IT,” a Frankenstein tease from Mike, and a vocal quote of Daniel Saw the Stone. The band vamped on the theme to Chariots of Fire (a Phish debut) while Trey introduced the top finishers in the Runaway Jim 5K race. During Antelope, Trey thanked the staff, road crew, caterers (“part of the reason we’re playing so well is because we have the best food this tour that we’ve ever had”), and fans. He concluded by encouraging everyone to drive safely and noted tongue-in-cheek that next year’s “IT 2” would have a traffic-free entrance. Antelope also included Under Pressure and It’s Ice teases.

Trey also commented on his long-standing friendship with Tom Marshall and said that Tom had written Makisupa when he was a child. Trey brought Tom out on stage and noted that he thought Makisupa was written in 1969, leading Tom to note that we “have a 60’s song.” As Tom prepared to handle vocals on Buffalo Bill, Trey noted: “Tom is now going to sing you a song about a boss, a log, and a piece of rope.”

· Highway to Hell tease

Notes: This gig commemorated the 20th anniversary of the first Phish show. In the audience, a section of seats were roped off to make way for a music stand. The music stand held a three-ring binder that contained lyrics from the Phish canon, but it did not play an active role in the performance. Ya Mar contained teases of The Tra La La Song (One Banana, Two Banana). At the end of Disease, a video screen descended behind the stage. As the house lights remained down, a 25+ minute video was played featuring retrospective highlights from throughout Phish’s career. Before the second set, Mike brought out a tray of desserts and shared them with fans in front of the stage. Highway to Hell was briefly teased by Trey before Rock and Roll. Weekapaug was unfinished. Tweezer Reprise included lyrics (sung by Trey) from Mike’s Song. Appropriately, the post-show house music was the Beatles’ song Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band (which begins with the lyric, “It was twenty years ago today…”).

Trey seemed to end the song after the second chorus while the rest of the band continued to play. The jam after Suzy contained a Lizards tease from Trey.

Notes: Wilson contained War Pigs teases from Mike and was unfinished. The song may have been played as an opener in memoriam of actor Earl Hindman, best known as “Wilson” from the television series Home Improvement, who passed away earlier in the day. NICU contained Shafty teases from Mike. Weigh was played for the first time since August 2, 1998 (200 shows). Cities included Sand teases. Gin included Show Biz Kids and After Midnight teases. 2001 included a P. Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up) jam containing some brief lyrics, as well as Gin, Sand, and Auld Lang Syne teases. Tube was unfinished. L.A. Woman was a Phish debut; Birds included L.A. Woman teases. During Makisupa, Trey noted that they were going to play Touch Me, but decided not to because Fish couldn't remember the words and they didn't know how to play the horn section. To make it up to the crowd for letting them down, Trey brought out George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic (also known as The P. Funk All-Stars). Trey commented: “And that’s even better than Touch Me!” The ensuing P. Funk Jam moved through pieces of several classic Parliament/ Funkadelic tunes including Butt-a-Butt, Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker), P. Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up), and One Nation Under A Groove. Get Low (Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz) was also part of the medley. By the end of the jam, Fishman was alone on stage playing vacuum. Fishman then exited, leaving the stage empty. Phish returned alone to finish Makisupa; to prove that P. Funk was better than Fishman singing Touch Me, Makisupa closed with Fishman singing the first line of Touch Me a cappella. During the last chorus of Contact, Trey sang lines like “L.A. Woman” and “Make My Funk the P. Funk” in place of his usual harmonies.

Notes: The brief conclusions of Wilson and Tube completed the versions from the previous evening. Weekapaug included Jungle Boogie lyrics and a Divided Sky tease; Weekapaug, YEM, First Tube, and Chalk Dust also included Auld Lang Syne teases. Seven Below was unfinished. The house music played over the P.A. during the second setbreak consisted solely of songs that referenced “cars” in their titles. As midnight neared during Jungle Boogie (a Phish debut), Fish’s drum kit was wheeled to the side of the stage. An Austin Cooper Mini automobile was lowered to the stage from above. The Miami Palmetto Senior High Band and cheerleading squad emerged from the car one-by-one, giving the impression that they were all in the car together. In reality, the car had touched down over a trap door in the stage and the guests came out from underneath. Also emerging were dancers similar to the bunny-women present at the IT Festival. The marching band joined in on the jam that emerged from Jungle Boogie. With the stage covered with marching band members and dancers (some even on top of Page’s baby grand piano), an emcee (dressed in an Eddie George, Tennessee Titans, #27 football jersey) counted the clock down to midnight. A massive balloon drop followed. Phish then led the marching band through an instrumental version of Iron Man (also a Phish debut). Reba did not have the whistling ending. For his “first song of 2004,” in honor of the Miami Heat, Fishman performed the Phish debut of Feel the Heat. HYHU contained more references to “Henrietta’s Heat” as Fishman took laps around the stage. Frankenstein was preceded by a Fluffhead tease.
