Review by adamopp

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.

Review by Midcoaster

Midcoaster Recently posted a pic of the ticket "stub" to this show. It was a business card.

Long story short: I was visiting an old friend in England, was discussing this experience, how much fun we had, how unlikely of an experience this was, and he says, "Hey, I still have the ticket stub!"

Amazing. So glad I was able to witness this, and grateful that it continues!

I think my ears are still ringing from these club shows.
