spreaditround PHISH, FRIDAY 06/30/2000
Hartford, CT

SET 1:

Ha Ha Ha: Standard.

AC/DC Bag[1] - Strong jam, but nothing out of the ordinary other than the length. Definitely sets the tone for a great set. Would recommend. The last 45 seconds is Trey playing staccato, something that you might hear in a Fee jam… >

Tweezer: This one is pretty tame. Mike opens the jam with some serious underwater funk. The jam doesn’t have much life other than from 10:30 to 11:30. Nice segue into Jim >

Runaway Jim: Solid enough jam don’t let the time stamp fool you though, there are about two minutes of dead air. Like Tweezer, this jam is somewhat workmanlike in nature and nothing much grabbed my attention.

Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley[2] - Standard >

Ginseng Sullivan: Standard >

Guyute: Standard

Golgi Apparatus: Standard >

Tweezer Reprise: Standard >

Possum: Trey gets the jet fueled up and prepped for takeoff – seriously, check out how high he takes this jam and then launches it – sounds like a plane, would recommend.

SET 2:

Halley's Comet: Solid jam with good length. Basically, it’s one long groove monster. >

The Mango Song: Such a chill jam. This one would be great to put on at the end of a long day or night to wind down. Gets into a very quiet, ambient space and then out of that segues into Twist. >

Twist: Standard.

The Inlaw Josie Wales: Standard.

Back on the Train: Standard. >

Makisupa Policeman[3] Some interesting effects in this one.

Farmhouse: Standard. >

Sleeping Monkey: Standard. >

David Bowie: Standard.


Cavern: Tweezer and Moby Dick teases are fun, and the MD stuff is foreshadowing of what would go down at Deer Creek.

Summary: Interestingly enough, I always loved this show. But upon this relisten, it has lost some of it’s luster. It’s just not that strong. I think it is a little better than average, I would give it a 3.75/5. Phish.net current rating is 4.25/5 (>50 ratings).

Replay Value: Possum, Halley's Comet, The Mango Song

[1] The ending of AC/DC Bag was unusual, as Trey repeated the closing guitar tweaks before breaking into the Tweezer riff.
[2] No vocal jam.
[3] The key phrase in Makisupa was "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Big Fat Doob."

The ending of AC/DC Bag was unusual, as Trey repeated the closing guitar tweaks before breaking into the Tweezer riff. Sneakin' Sally did not contain a vocal jam. The key phrase in Makisupa was a play on the blues classic One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, with "Big Fat Doob" replacing "Beer." Cavern included Tweezer teases and a Moby Dick tease after Trey introduced Fish under that name. Runaway Jim included Nellie Kane teases.
