kedrar Awesome show at Quigley's. I was back in Philly getting my knee operated on, and I got to catch Phish at the 23 East cabaret in Ardmore Pa. the month before. I had just gotten back to Boulder, where I was in school at CU, and managed to catch this show. Couldn't convince anyone to blow off a major party to go with me, so I went alone. I met up with my buddies later and tried to convince them to go with me to JJ Mccabe's, which was the next night. Some other local band, possibly band du Jour, was playing, so they said "no."

brybird Quigley's was a pool hall/greasy food joint in the basement of the University Memorial Center on the CU Campus. 3.2% beer available to 18 and older! Lots a great bands played there in the late 80s or upstairs in the Glen Miller Ballroom. Phish was not a household name, so you kinda had to know someone that knew someone that knew Phish to hear about this gig and the one the night at J.J. McCabes on Walnut Street which is no longer even there.

Review by thelot

thelot Decent SBD recording for this show. However, the overall sound is a bit flat.

It sounds like they have a pretty good size crowd for their first show back in Colorado! Good word and tapes travel fast! Things start out on a standard front with a Golgi, YEM opener. Decent YEM with a little rough patch during the opening segment. Nice A-Train. Before Possum Trey mentions that it’s their first gig in Colorado. Page adds “in two years” Possum has some fun A-Train teasing in the intro, but they totally miss the drop into the song. The Rhombus narration proceeds Sky. Some fans are yelling for Wilson up front, so Trey breaks off a bit to explain how Wilson ties into Gamehendge. Carolina closes out a pretty straightforward first half.

Set 2 opens with a strong Mike’s Groove. Esther provides a nice cool down. The second known version of Uncle Pen is up next. This version is definitely more polished than the last one heard in Granville. Trey introduces Moses Brown during I Didn’t Know, sporting a new Sac-Vac of Boulder vacuum cleaner in his first attempt with a new high powered machine. GXBX slays! The beginning of Contact is cropped. Pumpin’ version of Highway to Hell to wrap up the evening. All in all a pretty straightforward performance for this year. Regardless, I’m sure the people in attendance still had an amazing times!

Review by DemandOpener

DemandOpener There's really nothing that special about this show. Pretty typical for late 80's/early 90's Phish. Not to say there's anything wrong with it, but apart from an enjoyable early YEM, there's really not much to see here. I went with 2.5 stars because there's some slop in Foam and GTBT.

jereandjess I have a pic of a poster for this show that I saw on ebay or something quite a while ago. I believe Acoustic Junction also played at this show.
