Show Notes

This was Phish’s second show at The Portsmouth Music Hall. It was an all ages show presented by Dionysian Productions with a $12.50 ticket price. The show, which occurred in the midst of a Nor’easter snowstorm, was completely sold out. Reportedly there was a spirited snowball fight outside during setbreak. Before and during Buried Alive, Trey teased The Christmas Song. During Terrapin, Fish played his vacuum solo while Mike directed the vacuum’s exhaust into his microphone. Before Sweet Adeline, Trey celebrated the end of the tour by giving away the two mini-trampolines to the audience (see 8/15/04). When the excited crowd near the stage got too grabby, Fish said “I knew we should have raffled them”. This prompted Trey and Mike to offer Fish to the audience too, reportedly pushing him into the crowd. Sweet Adeline was performed without microphones. Between this show and the next (12/31/91), Trey and Tom got together in New Jersey for a “Bivouac” writing session.
