Notes: MFMF ended with a Rockin' Back Inside My Heart (Julee Cruise) jam with lyrics changed from "Rockin' Back" to "Runnin' Back." The Bowie intro included Oom Pa Pa, Aw Fuck!, and Simpsons signals and HYHU teases. The encore was performed without microphones. This show was originally scheduled for Houston’s Bayou City Theatre, but was relocated at the last minute to the Tower Theater.
Since this comment is too short to be included as a show review, I will fill it out by mentioning that this was the first show of my good friend @baconflavoredkittens, who got me into Phish and therefore changed my life forever. Thanks, amigo!
The night before the infamous Tweezerfest, the band played Houston. I'm guessing a lack of ticket sales was the reason for the last-minute venue switch. The first set and encores of this show don't circulate.
The Maze has a really interesting chaotic and distorted section at about the 8:30 mark that lasts about a minute, somewhat unusual for this era. Reba is unremarkable. The Bowie incorporates a quiet, sparse section in the beginning of the jam before building up steam and finishing strong.
Everything else is standard for the era, with the Julius not reaching the heights of some other spring '94 versions.
