Trey sang verses through megaphone.
 Lyric changed to "Suck the deer shit from the side of this hole."
This show featured a visually spectacular Mule, which featured Trey playing guitar with his teeth and Page playing keyboards with his face and feet. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. During Antelope, Trey substituted “Suck the deer shit from the side of this hole” for the “high gear of your soul” lyric. Possum included a Dave's Energy Guide tease. Weekapaug included a Divided Sky tease from Trey. Fish introduced Rosie as being about “a lonely man singing to his inflatable love doll.” Parts of this show were used in Mike Gordon’s 1997 short film Goodwood.
This was my first Phish show ever and now that I look back at the night I had, I should've killed my friend's brother. You see, he was supposed to pick us up from a town just south of Worcester @ 4:20pm for my virgin show and supposedly the night of my life, but he didn't pick us up until 6:30pm and because of him we missed the whole first set, which, from the looks of it, seemed awesome. Years later I now think I should've killed him because come to find out the reason he was late was to score a bag of weed for our group... a bag of fucking schwag none the less! Instead of experiencing the lot and looking there (which later come to find out is extremely easy to find whatever one wants) I wasted my time for this fag... if you are out there, bushman, YOU SUCK DONKEY BALLS AND DESERVE TO DIE!
