Review by SplitOpenAndMule

SplitOpenAndMule In a February 3rd 1997 Rockline radio interview, Trey and Fish tell a weird story about this show: You can hear it at 11:30 of the interview here.

Trey: We did a show in Houston and a guy got shot, you remember that? It was in that little, we played in this um... out in the parking lot he got shot, it wasn't in the crowd.
Fish: Oooh yeah, I remember that.
Trey: I was gonna walk my dog and the guy was saying-
Fish: Yeah, that was that gig we were yelling at each other.
Trey: Yeah, we got in a fight on stage. The whole thing was really bizarre.
Fish: Uh, weird night.
Trey: It was something about the vibe there, but he was saying, "Don't walk your dog out there cause it's a really dangerous neighborhood," and I was, "Oh, okay," you know. I had Marley, my dog, used to tour with us, and there was only about four people in the audience in this little club we were playing at. And we ended up getting into this huge fight, like right on stage, I can't remember what it was about, but just stopped playing, dropped the instruments, screaming at each other.
DJ: You guys were screaming at each other on stage?
Trey: On stage, yeah-
Fish: No like, yeah, just, yeah, just, you know, arguing about-
Trey: You know, the groove was rushing or something,
Fish: Some, yeah, it's like, Antelope, like, oh, yeah, it was some thing, like, speeding up...
Trey: And we just stopped and started fighting, and then I went off stage and there was this commotion, and I walked outside and some guy had gotten shot out there. So that was pretty weird.

Review by Lifeboy13

Lifeboy13 I bought the promotional venue poster on eBay in 2008 from what appeared to be the owner/manager of the SHOWBAR. It came with the contract and rider from Phish and has a stage set up diagram with Languadocs phone number as well as having John Paluskas number on the front. No signatures on the paperwork but was an unbelievable find for $35. The poster was creased down the middle and looked to have been used as a folder for the paperwork. I'm not sure if condition is an issue because I've only seen tour blanks and have never seen anything of this calibre to compare it too. What Value does it have? I was thinking of selling if the value is there. Not sure if I can post a picture in the thread either.
