adamopp How did someone finally get a setlist for this show? For so long, nobody seemed to know this gig even happened! Was not listed in the HFB, not on ZZYZX's page, not here on No recordings in circulation, but someone came up with a setlist? I was living in Portland by this time, the show was announced on the Phish newsletter in advance. Place was hardly packed as I recall. Was able to move back and forth between a table with friends, and a spot squarely in front of Trey without human contact. Most memorable part was the performance of "Minute by Minute" with perfect Fishman-Michael McDonald singing and a Fishman demonstration of "circular breathing" during his trombone solo. Also, they most definitely played the Talking Heads' "Life During Wartime" out of a jam. At least one verse and chorus, possibly the whole song.
Score: 1
