Jam Chart for shows in the city of Washington, DC (19 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1990-06-07 Tweezer Washington, DC 12:32 Crazy, long early version. At one point Mike sounds like he will break into into "Heartbreaker."
1990-06-07 Weekapaug Washington, DC 7:26 Dissonant jam with lots of "DEG"-like jamming.
1990-10-08 Magilla Washington, DC 6:51 Odd and awesome early version which, in addition to great jazz-inflected soloing by Trey, Page and Mike, also features somewhat dark, almost dissonant jamming before the ending.
1990-10-08 Antelope Washington, DC 10:33 Good jam that gets very improvisational, especially after 5:30. Machine Gun Trey in combat duty in the latter part of the jam.
1991-02-19 Bowie Washington, DC 12:34 Good intro. Raging "Type I" version with an unusual stop mid-jam (possibly the power went out).
1991-02-19 SOAMelt Washington, DC 8:06 Beginning of the jam is very cool with several near stops by the band. Then there's piercing, ear-splitting playing by Trey.
1991-02-19 Magilla Washington, DC 5:20 Page-written, Trey-driven. Or so it often seems. Here, Trey works in a "Theme from the Flintstones" tease before easing through a series of slashing, jazzy chords, and a bright, melodic line. Fish solos, making for a great outro. "Fire" follows to cap off this cool encore.
1991-11-16 Gin Washington, DC 7:41 Good early "Gin." The jam (like most from pre-August '93) is grinding, decelerating and somewhat dissonant. Nothing like the melodic hose jams that would emerge later. This one also has amusing screaming and yelling at the end.
1991-11-16 Brother Washington, DC 5:53 Some unusual bass lines from Mike and organ playing by Page create a strong sense of tension in this ripper.
1991-11-16 YEM Washington, DC 20:54 Must-hear jam segment; legendary "Mrs. Pizza Shit" YEM.
1992-03-17 It's Ice Washington, DC 8:46 Almost sounds like 1997 five years early with Page's funky sounding organ. Must-hear.
1993-02-07 Runaway Jim Washington, DC 8:18 Really cool version with Trey (5:27) leading the band through extended "DEG"-like play, before (5:52) entering what sounds like "Rift". This, then, into raw and raucous soloing, which brings the version to a customarily strong close.
1993-02-07 Reba Washington, DC 13:54 A crazy composed section with a lot of hissing and screaming (affectionately known as the "Baguette" version), breaks for a jam featuring playing both fluid and somewhat jarring. In time, Mike provides a great beat over which Trey creates a cool vibe. The band modulates intensity to inform an exploratory space, within which the musicians coalesce to create a sound supercharged and sonic. Trey then pushes the band through an erratic, but wholly controlled peak.
1993-02-07 YEM Washington, DC 21:54 Excellent version with "Clementine" VJ.
1993-12-28 Possum Washington, DC 12:05 Jazzy, exploratory and quiet beginning to the jam. The power cranks up with "Kashmir" teases and then gets blistering hot.
1993-12-28 YEM Washington, DC 20:30 Great opening segment!
1999-12-15 DwD Washington, DC 15:24 Compared to most '99s, the jam here breaks earlier into a light, textured groove that intensifies as it returns to "DwD."
1999-12-15 Gin Washington, DC 16:45 A gentle straightforward jam transforms into a nice groove-based jam around 10:30 and eventually works back to "Gin."
1999-12-15 Free Washington, DC 16:11 Jam starts in typical fashion, but then Trey hits the keyboards for an extended and very different version.
