Soundcheck: Jam, Poor Heart, The Old Home Place, Drowned
SET 1: Split Open and Melt, Gumbo > The Curtain > Julius, Guyute, Horn > Rift > Fast Enough for You, Possum
SET 2: Timber (Jerry the Mule) > Theme From the Bottom > Wilson > Buried Alive > Tweezer -> I Didn't Know, Uncle Pen, Slave to the Traffic Light
ENCORE: Fee > Tweezer Reprise
The P.A. went out during Rift, causing some giggles when Page sang “and silence contagious in moments like these.” Wilson included a Johnny B. Goode tease. During Tweezer, Mike played part of what would become the Bass Jam on the following evening. I Didn't Know featured Fish on trombone. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. The soundcheck's Poor Heart was the slow version. Demand was teased before The Old Home Place.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
Review by Pillow
But here's a few quick facts.
First, the next time I saw Rift played I wondered why it didn't seem as quiet during the "silence contagious in moments like these..." part. Like I said, this was my first show.
Second, I was the guy who never understood why anyone would "follow a band around". I didn't get it. I mean, I had been to a few concerts and sure, they were fun. But I'd never been to a Phish show. Up until this point, my exposure to Phish were studio albums and "A Live One". My friends and I piled into my car, which I had bought 3 months earlier. I had only made 2 payments on it. We drove from CT up to Worcester and grabbed our tickets from will-call. We entered the show, my life changed forever, and then we headed back to the car. Once we got back to the car, I grabbed a few things and then handed the keys to my friend and said: "I'm gonna stay for tomorrow and then head to NYC. If I'm not back home by Jan 2nd, then it's ok to worry." I simply walked off, and the rest is history.
