Songs by Debut Year:
This show was part of the "1999 Summer U.S. Tour."
Phil and Friends (w/ Trey and Page)+ Classic TAB (tour debut) = 6 months of no Phish...
The entire show from note one was surreal; bomb drops concluded every 1st set number, but for Maze when they musically bantered our minds.
My Left Toe from the Siket Disc debuted at this show. Familiarity with the album could best describe the vibe from this 2nd set; and one word: Catatonia
No covers were played.
Each set and the encore led off with a cut from Lawn Boy.
Set II gets off to a great start with Coil > Free. This Free needs to be heard to be believed. Like the version on 7-31-98, this groove is THICK. Also of note in set II is the debut of Bug and My Left Toe, an ambient masterpiece that sounds so good slicing through the Kansas sky.
Check this show out when you have some time to sit down and listen closely, it will be rewarding.
It's your typical summer shed. No covered seating that I recall. I remember being happy about the Gin opener; Tube was cool(although nothing stellar) BOTT was fun and I knew at the time, that I didn't know it. That's about it for musical memories from this show. Bouncing> Sample Encore= "Let's go get a burrito!"
Sidenote: The girl I was with had seen some shows(Spokane-Portland 96) but wasn't a regular. Anyways I mentioned we were rockin the "car-temperature" PBR cans in the lot pre-party style. Well we were CHUGGING em'. So we're dancing sometime in the middle of set I and although it was an over-cast day in Kansas, it is still HOT and HUMID. She stops and says "I need to go to the bathroom." And I'm like(casually) "Yeah, we'll go at set break." Well what she meant was is she needed to throw up. Well, she made it to set break and bless her, she mad it to the tarlette to excercise them PBR demons.
Less than 2 stars.
