Review by Shred

Shred Red Rocks is one of the premier venues in the world. If you haven’t been to a show there at some point you should. Doubtful it’ll be Phish since they do Dicks now but it’s a must see venue. The two pack of Red Rocks shows during summer 94 are very indicative of the tour. The band comes out trying to destroy every song. Great type 1 jams. I love this tour but I think I lean towards the 95 summer tour when they were doing wild, long type 2 jams almost every night. Either tour could be considered their best, I personally consider Phish’s highest peak to be from 93 to 95. I was lucky to see most of my shows in this era.

Our seats were pretty close like 10th row. We had a fun crew and we were raging for the show. Ripping Jim Foam old school to start which got us in the mood right away. Song choice in for first set is somewhat suspect but still the Bowie was a good type 1 jam. Along with Lizards which I never really connected with musically.

The old school pairing of curtain --) tweezer is always a welcomed treat. Curtain is played well. Love that song. Tweezer is really high energy as well. Trey locks in on a riff right away. He goes high and dirty right away while staying mellow. Gordo and Fish are locked in with a great beat. For 10 min, the band stays in the pocket with a slower jam. Then after about 10 m of this, they blow it up with a bunch of high notes and tension release rock riffs. Then this purposefully falls apart. Fish runs Tweezer which is cool. He was such a beast back then. Lifeboy was a buzz kill for me in 94, but now a days I kind of like it. Nice reflective moment for everyone. Great Possum this night w a signal. Trey completely dismantles Possum and then put it together again. This is how to play Possum. Hood was the song of the show. Long reggae breakdown intro and the end is really beautiful. The energy was so euphoric in the venue during Hood. The ending is the peak of the show. Certainly worth a listen. Too bad there isn’t a board of this show just for the Curtain-Tweez-Possum-Hood. Fish was the MVP of this show. The next night was a better show but is heavily reviewed. 6-11-94 was a complete throw down with soundboards on the spreadsheet along with boards for 1993 Red Rocks show which people should take advantage of.
