Both Mockingbird and Stash referenced the Los Angeles riots that ensued after the Rodney King verdict was announced. During Icculus, Trey extolled the virtues of the Helping Friendly Book and remarked jokingly that The Aquarium Rescue Unit “used to be a feeble bluegrass band until they read this great book!” Glide was a birthday dedication. Coil included a DEG tease. Bowie included Will the Circle Be Unbroken?, Get Back, Aw Fuck!, All Fall Down, Up Up and Away, Random Laugh, and Oom Pa Pa signals as well as the return of the Band/Crew Football Theme Song (first since April 16, 1991, or 125 shows). Bowie also included Miss Gulch / Witch's theme teases. Mike's Song and Timber (Jerry the Mule) were teased before Tela. YEM included a Don’t Get Me Wrong tease. BBFCFM featured some zany on-stage antics that found Trey on top of his stack and Mike singing from down on the floor. The Aquarium Rescue Unit was the opening act.

Review by DaReba
Jim is sparkling. Fish shines giving a perfect tapestry for the band and crowd to dance to. they ripped this Runaway Jim to shreds. You could almost assume they didn't think it would be that way with the curious but welcomed Col Forbin follow. The band is so tight this whole year, its hard to stop mentioning it. it is a good narrative . referencing the riots and another example of how self-aware the band is. Forbin leads into a Famouspus Mocking Bird that I have to say , in my humble opinion, the tightest to that point. They are on fire. Again a good recording will make this obvious. i heard this off of phistracks.com . sick quality. I can't imagine they thought they could play that song better at that time in the bands' development.
Reba follows, full disclosure my favorite song or first favorite masterpiece jams by trey in the YEM, Divided Sky, Antelope realm. Reba got me hooked on those atonal gems from trey's mind. htis written first part is played so perfect you wanna cry. The jam is Phish RnB at its best. the beginning is fish on a great groove wih Mike and Trey rocks it slowly the band gets a regular reba groove giong. Mike drops the first bomb and trey matches that figure in a DEG-like jam Then Fish's cymbals make a great appearance and then Trey just Jedi-Knight's this song. A must-hear Reba.
A blistering Maze follows. The band is in full flight drumd Trey's solo
The Stash verse is a good listen alone. Trey switches the words for a dig at the cops. . this stash is great. must listen.
