Review by gengel

gengel A single, yet powerful set. Needless to say, Phish easily eclipsed the remains of Canned Heat whom they were tapped to open for.

It is worthwhile noting that this show did NOT take place on at the Campus Pond. It was originally scheduled to take place on the lawn next to the pond, but due to spring rains and snow melt, that area was deemed too muddy, so the concert took place on a parking lot near the Southwest dormitory area, which created a great vibe of the lot being the concert!

Reelife_Tom Sunday, May 14, 1989- was planned to be in the Southwest area quad and called The Southwest Spring Concert. (Not Campus Pond as noted above) but moved to parking lot due to heavy rain. There were skydivers that parachuted into the show... I was a member of the Southwest area concert committee and I contacted John Paluska yo get Phish to play at this show. I helped coordinate their contract...I got the band's autographs (Fishman signed his “John Hancock- since I asked for their :”John hancocks) and photos of them on stage. They opened up for (!) Canned Heat. Other performances were by The Incredible Casuals & Atlantic Steel Drum Band.
