Reba did not have the whistling ending. Talk featured Trey on acoustic guitar. The P.A. cut out during Funky Bitch, during which Fish took an “air drum” solo, Trey performed Townshend-style windmills, and the entire band engaged in random silliness while still “playing” the song. Scent featured a Page/Mike Mule Duel and a guest appearance from comedian Steven Wright, who came out and rang a desk bell three times.

Review by gregdodge

gregdodge Poppy, snappy, aggressive Phish. While no stand out or all-time jams, this show glows with that mid-90's spark. First set featured great versions of The Sloth, Gumbo, and Funky Bitch. Second set got deeper with a dark dark Timber Ho!, followed by an Uncle Pen that meant business, then one of the more sinister, slow, almost half-time AC/DC. This one is firey, for sure. An underrated show, worth your time to crank up the audience recording and feel the hugeness.

Review by Tbone

Tbone Good show and some songs that I took for granted at the time, to date this is the only time I have seen Uncle Pen, Sloth, Lifeboy and Llama live. The PA going out was genius and I got a real kick out of that Phish trick. The anticipation of going to see the them the following night was just killing me and that is what I remember most.
