This was a nice fall outdoor show. They had just signed with Absolute A Go-Go records and Trey told us the first thing he did was to go out and by a Mercedes.....the new equipment truck that saw many many miles over the next year and a half along with "Foxy Grandma" their conversion van.....

TheEmu Not a bad little show. Pretty much everything through Reba is thoroughly standard. Ya Mar has some pep, but Tube is fairly messy. Tweezer has some life to it, though, with a nice Heartbreaker tease and a Charlie Chan/Popeye/full stop (or maybe it's sing a random note?) The highlight here is probably the Weekapaug, which has Trey doing his best roller coaster impersonation, and is a lot of fun. The Magilla...not so much, plus it is cut at the end, and the first half of Antelope is cut, too. The 'Lope jam is pretty solid, and mostly standard except for the three Charlie Chans with How High The Moon, Oom Pa Pa, and Popeye taboot. Overall, I'd say three stars. Fun, solid, average but typically fun Phish.
