Show Notes

This was the first night of a 2-night stand at the Roseland, billed as “Ron Delsener Presents an evening with PHISH.”  It was Phish’s first 2-nighter in New York City.  Before Page’s organ solo in Llama, Trey shouted “Leo”.  Punch You In The Eye was performed publicly for the 1st time in more than three years (since 11/9/89).  During The Landlady section of Punch, the band brought the music way down while Trey taught the audience the “The Landlady dance which is also the Punch You In The Eye storm dance.”  Trey took a minute to explain “because, in the spirit of the Roseland Ballroom, there used to be…in the big band era…people right here dancing.  Latin and salsa music was being played with Jazz…some of the greatest American music, so in the spirit of that we’re all going to try The Landlady dance.”  Trey then gave a mini narration of the plot of the kayak part of Punch You In The Eye before finishing the song.  During I Didn’t Know, Trey introduced Fish, saying “Tubbs, the Incredible Beast Boy will now attempt to play an oversized picture of Otis Redding.”  Drawing on the room’s acoustics and an attentive crowd, this Reba jam was especially dynamic.  David Bowie, in addition to book-ending the energy-restoring Vibration Of Life, also contained Random Note and Fall Down secret language.  Tweezer included a tease of Funkytown, hearkening to a show at The Wetlands years ago.  The Horse began with Trey on acoustic guitar and The Squirming Coil was dedicated to Sofi Dillof.  Amazing Grace was performed without microphones.
