Show Notes

This show took place in a historic Beaux Arts style theatre built in 1917 with a capacity of 1,750. Flyers advertising the show advertised “a special dance floor set up” and tickets were $17. The soundcheck featured a St. Louis blues version of Dog Log. A must-hear performance of Stash led into the show’s first Kung which developed into a Dave’s Energy Guide jam before seguing back into Stash. A demented rendition of The Horse followed with Trey on acoustic guitar and chanting, along with Fish, the show’s second Kung (with added German words and accents). Kung was interspersed with The Horse culminating in “we MUST stage a runaway golfcart marathon!”, a full-band tease of Pinball Wizard (The Who cover) and Fish’s return to Kung. A quick tease of Harry Hood finally led back to The Horse in its “usual” form. Set II began with Trey’s announcement that his friend Roger (Holloway) was at the show and wanted to ask a question. Roger then proposed onstage to his now-wife Jennifer, who accepted as the band broke into AC/DC Bag with an appropriately excited accent on the “just like Roger he’s a crazy little kid” lyric. AC/DC Bag also included teases of My Woman From Tokyo (Deep Purple cover). You Enjoy Myself book-ended the tour’s second Spooky and the YEM vocal jam included teases of the Jeopardy! Theme. Harpua’s narration was about dream thieves and included teases of Dream Weaver (Gary Wright cover), the Jetsons Theme (Hoyt Curtin cover) and The End (The Doors cover). Trey dedicated Contact to Roger and Jen, together “on the road of life.” The Apr/May 93 Phish Update had listed 4/15 as a possible second show at the American, but it turned out to be a well-deserved day off for the band and crew.
