Setlists Matching City: Keene, State: NH, Country: USA, All Artists


My Friend was dedicated to “Steve E.” who drove eighteen hours to the show. Jokingly, Trey subsequently called the bouncers over to throw him out! Before Maze, Page read an announcement from management asking fans not to smoke in the building. Many people shouted out requests during the pause in Divided Sky, prompting Trey to scream “POSSUM!” into the microphone. The second set started with Page again requesting that fans not smoke, while Trey and Mike launched into a few bars of Smoke on the Water, which was then introduced by Trey as Cat Scratch Fever. NICU included a Simpsons signal. This show marked the Phish debut of Baby Lemonade and, along with it, the first appearance of Fish’s Bag-Vac. The end of Baby Lemonade featured a tease of On Broadway. Sanity and the theme to All Things Considered were teased before All Things Reconsidered. Lots of humor ensued over Mike’s use of a cardboard cutout of Kathleen Turner from the movie V.I. Warshawski, which started out on top of his bass rig and ended up in front of him, giving the appearance of his head on her body. Sanity was played for the first time since May 28, 1989 (339 shows). Memories and Carolina were performed without microphones.

This show marked the first performances of Brother, It’s Ice, Sparkle, and All Things Reconsidered. Reba contained two Simpsons signals (without the "D'oh" response) and Possum had a Rhapsody in Blue tease from Trey and Charlie Chan and Simpsons signals. Chalk Dust contained four Charlie Chan signals and Key Change, Tritone Down, Clapping, and Random Laugh signals. Cavern and Jesus Just Left Chicago featured Carl Gerhard on trumpet.

This show, officially released as Live Phish 19, featured The Giant Country Horns for all songs except Reba, Rocky Top, Golgi, The Squirming Coil, My Sweet One, Hydrogen, both HYHUs, Oh Kee Pa, Adeline, and Fee. It also marked the first Phish performance of Moose the Mooche, which contained a tease of Rhythm-A-Ning from Trey. Trey also teased the Woody Woodpecker theme before Golgi. During the band intros before Donna Lee, Page and Russ teased Killer Joe during Russ's introduction. Prior to Touch Me, Fish was introduced as the Lizard Queen. Touch Me featured Fish on trombone. Sweet Adeline was performed without microphones.


Trey teased Buried Alive in Divided Sky. Bowie contained Sounds of Silence teases in Fish’s high hat intro, and had a silent jam near the end of the jam segment. Ya Mar contained a brief Happy Birthday tease from Trey. Bag contained a Bonanza theme tease from Trey was also unusually adventurous, with three dead stops during the jam segment and uncommon dissonance. Trey briefly started Horn before Harry Hood, but abandoned it. Before Terrapin, Trey announced that Fish would be “bringing out the big, heavy artillery” for the people in Keene. The “artillery” was Fish’s new vacuum, which made its debut at this show. Fish noted that “if I bleed during this song, that’ll just be part of the effects.” Inspired by his new instrument, Fish took an exceedingly spacey solo during Terrapin, complete with ersatz wolf howls, before singing the final verse through the vacuum.

Gumbo featured Fish on trombone. Fish was introduced as Mrs. Bob Seger in I Didn't Know. Antelope contained Jean Pierre teases from Trey.

This show featured the debut of Eliza. David Bowie contained Asse Festival teases, two Charlie Chan signals and Oom Pa Pa and Random Note signals in the intro and two more Charlie Chan signals and Popeye and Tritone Down signals in the song itself. Magilla contained a Blue Monk tease from Page. Minute by Minute featured Fish on trombone. Possum contained two Charlie Chan signals and How High The Moon and Random Laugh signals. Recordings of this performance circulate with You Enjoy Myself following Communication Breakdown, but the YEM appears to be from a different show.

After Whipping Post, Trey welcomed the crowd to the second set and apologized for taking such a long break. The comments were in reference to their last show in the Keene area (2/22/90), at which heavy smoking and/or a fire alarm resulted in the show being aborted after the first set. Possum ended with a Sailor's Hornpipe tease from Trey. This show marked the first and only known performance of Metal Bagel Death, which was a dedication to some friends who had recently opened Keene Bagel Works across the street. YEM contained a Flash Light tease from Mike. Trey briefly reprised Caravan after If I Only Had a Brain and teased Simple Gifts in the intro to Contact.

Caravan contained several Manteca teases and an Entrance of the Gladiators tease. Bowie included a Mike’s Song tease, heavy DEG teasing, and references to Marley. There was no second set, as someone pulled the fire alarm and prematurely ended the show.
