Tey teased How High the Moon before Suzy. My Friend was dedicated to “Steve E.” who drove eighteen hours to the show. Jokingly, Trey subsequently called the bouncers over to throw him out! Before Maze, Page read an announcement from management asking fans not to smoke in the building. Many people shouted out requests during the pause in Divided Sky, prompting Trey to scream “POSSUM!” into the microphone. The second set started with Page again requesting that fans not smoke, while Trey and Mike launched into a few bars of Smoke on the Water, which was then introduced by Trey as Cat Scratch Fever. NICU included a Simpsons signal. Page played the first few notes of HYHU before the first Cold As Ice. This show marked the Phish debut of Baby Lemonade and, along with it, the first appearance of Fish’s Bag-Vac. The end of Baby Lemonade featured a tease of On Broadway. Sanity and the theme to All Things Considered were teased before All Things Reconsidered. Lots of humor ensued over Mike’s use of a cardboard cutout of Kathleen Turner from the movie V.I. Warshawski, which started out on top of his bass rig and ended up in front of him, giving the appearance of his head on her body. Sanity was played for the first time since May 28, 1989 (340 shows). Memories and Carolina were performed without microphones.

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.

I had listened to Lawn Boy and a couple random bootlegs prior. (Luckily for me, Phish had a significant following in Keene and a lot of my friends had been to shows and turned me on to them). Thank you Jesse!
A month before the show, I listened to Antelope while alone in my bedroom. Just closed my eyes and listened, focusing soley on the music. It induced me to inadvertently meditate for the first time. I felt as though I'd lost time. I had to see this band.
To the show: We walked into the theater just as they opened with Suzy. The entire room was bouncing. The L probably enhanced this, but I'd never felt this type of energy before. I had another teenage musically-motivated meditative moment during Reba.
Everything was just fun and loose. The band's banter, Kathleen Turner, the drummer who played a fucking bag-vac, Simpsons signal, Smoke on Water (please don't smoke requests). It was raucous. A unique "Evening with Phish," as the tickets used to say. No memorable 20 min type II Ghost Jam....these were different times.
For instance, we got to leave the theatre during set break. Outside, fat flakes of snow began falling and a pyschadelic snowball fight ensued on Main Street.
I couldn't appreciate the signifigance of the Sanity encore bustout at the time, but it certainly summed up the evening for me. Quintessential Phish: segue from an electric, wailing mind-fuck Sanity into a flawless a capella of Memories and Carolina, with Kathleen Turner hitting the high notes .
I was hooked.
