8 Foot Fluorescent Tubes,
Higher Ground, Winooski, VT
Notes: This performance included costumed dancers, theatrics that included people being hoisted by cables, artists displaying various props (including Mike Gordon placing Cactus props on stage), and innovative lighting that featured large florescent tubes. The second set was a looser jam session and included guest appearances from Dave Grippo on saxophones, James Harvey on trombone, Bobby Hackney on vocals, and Fish on drums. This show marked the debut of “First Tube,” “Sand,” “Mozambique,” and “Last Tube.” While not billed as a Trey Anastasio performance, with Russ and Tony it represents the public debut of the core TAB touring ensemble.
