Jam Chart for Meatstick (14 entries)

Date City Timing Notes
1997-06-25 Lille, France 3:51 Short debut version is essentially the "Meatstick" lyrics being sung over the jam out of "DwD". -> to "McGrupp".
1999-07-15 Holmdel, NJ 20:42 Coasts along in a low-key ambient groove, picks up energy and direction at about 16 minutes, and then returns to more of the same easygoing jamming until > to a very strong "SOAM." Longest version to date.
1999-09-18 Chula Vista, CA 12:57 Spacey wah-groove in the outro. > to "Free."
1999-12-05 Rochester, NY 14:14 Loosely segues out of "Mike's" and includes a very atypical jam that "goes type II" and RAGES before eventually cooling down, spacing-out, and seguing well into "Hydrogen."
1999-12-31 Big Cypress, FL 8:44 Closes out the Big Cypress festival with a short ambient outro.
2003-08-02 Limestone, ME 8:11 Outro gets slightly removed from the norm and has a unique ending.
2010-06-27 Columbia, MD 10:00 Extended outro and a -> to "Saw it Again."
2011-08-05 George, WA 8:47 Great segue in from a phenomenal "R&R," and also features a bit more varied jamming in the outro. -> to "BORW."
2014-07-30 Portsmouth, VA 10:05 Following Trey's lead, breaks into an atypically funky jam at about 5 minutes and briefly intensifies before fading out and > to "Piper." "Fuego" tease.
2016-07-15 George, WA 8:36 There's a bit more heft to this outro jam than typical, most notably Trey's added Echoplex, Page's synth work, and a spacey transition > to "2001".
2017-01-14 Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 11:34 This version's outro is much more musically productive than the typical and includes a "C&P" tease from Trey.
2021-09-05 Commerce City, CO 8:44 > from a "Simple/Catapult/Simple" sandwich and recalls the machinelike groove heard in that jam with stops and starts, dial-tone Trey, and quotes of "Lonely Trip" and "Catapult".
2022-07-30 Columbia, MD 7:44 Outro brews up a delectable synth-funk stew that you wish would never end, that is until Trey swoops in with a quick -> to "Simple".
2023-08-02 New York, NY 8:19 -> from "Energy." Like most extended "Meatsticks," this iteration is a blast to hear. Page and Fish drive the jam from the beginning, with Trey and Mike hopping in after some dance lessons. The band coalesces in the jam, locking in so much that the -> into "It's Ice" is quite smooth.
