Notes: Tweezer contained Heartbreaker teases from both Trey and Mike. After Tweezer, the band introduced and thanked the tour crew, presenting them with a cake and customized bowling balls. Trey teased DEG in Stash and Buried Alive in Highway to Hell.
We were in the front of the stage "slam dancing" hippy style so hard during highway to hell that Trey asked us to chill out a bit. I would physically move a group of bodies off to one side of the stage and the wave would sent me back to the other side- the Highway to Hell was insain. We were a bunch of St. Mike's boys venturing on to the UVM campus to let them know how much we liked our Phish shows.
I think this show epitomizes much of 1991: Tight, well played, not very adventuresome. Curtain and Jim are spotless, Reba is average, Poor Heart, Llama, Guelah, yadda yadda yadda. Oh Kee Pa wasn't as sharp, but Suzy definitely has a little spunk. That, and the Chalkdust that opens the second set, are probably the highlights, though. You've got your deconstruction style Bathtub Gin (blech), a yee haw! in Uncle Pen and another yee haw! in Landlady (heh!) as well as warnings about smoking in the venue and people crush in the "mosh" pit. Oh, and a brief Heartbreaker jam in Tweezer. That's all I've got to say; about as 3 stars as it gets.
