Notes: While it is believed that this show listing, date, and venue are correct, confirmation has not been firmly established. It is believed that this show was not at The Orange Grove (where Phish performed on 5/13/89) or Copperfield’s, as is sometimes listed.  This setlist is incomplete and likely incorrect as well. Home videos were shown both before and during this humorous Bike. Trey jokingly referred to TMWSIY as “The Man Who Stepped Into Dog Log.”  A recording of this show circulates with a very different setlist, which features David Bowie and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot as the encore and lists the following in the second set:  McGrupp, Divided, Reba, Mike's Groove, Curtis Loew, Alumni, Contact, and Lizards.

This show wasn't at Clement's Brewpub. I'm pretty sure it was the Orange Grove. Hungry Charlie's wasn't sold to Clement's until 1990. I was bartending in the summer of 1990 and Fishman came in one night and we talked about he always wanted to play there (as Chucks). I was actually playing my tapes from the Townsend shows a couple weeks earlier when he came in. So he left me his booking info and the show happened a couple months later in November.

UtilityMuffin This show was at Copperfield's. I am positive about this. I was there! They played the Orange Grove in the spring of '89. I missed that.

They sound checked Reba, which I don't think they had played officially played live yet. They were still working out the whistling parts.

This was my first Phish show and the only one I ever attended where the venue was less than half full.
