radiator9987 After seeing Phish two months earlier at the 8X10 I headed back down when I saw they were back in town. The crowd was a bit larger and in the time between I had secured a few bootlegs and was becoming familiar with their originals. I went in thinking I would know most of what they would play, of course I didn't and it made it that much cooler seeing how larger their repertoire was even in the early years. I knew Foam and MSO out of the box, but had never had the pleasure of Forbin's/Mockingbird. A kind soul explained the song to me and the whole Gamhenge thing at setbreak, mentioning both Lizards and McGrupp which came out in set 2. I liked Coil from their new album, but was down on Bouncing as trying to have a 'hit'. I spent most of Rift and Possum in the alley out back getting my mind right, not realizing that the Slow Rift would soon be gone forever. The highlight was Fluff>BBFCFM with the band going heavy metal crazy with the latter. I don't know why there was no encore, I do know I was on board.

Sadly they never came back to the 8X10. It was rumored the owner burned them and I don't believe they have ever played in baltimore again. After this it was all bayou all the time for the next few years as the band honed their craft and began the jump to theaters and then arenas.
