Show Notes

The Coca Cola Roxy Theatre venue was a historic, Spanish Baroque style theater opened in 1930 as the Buckhead Theatre with a capacity of about 1,250.  This was the first show of a 3-night stand at The Roxy and Phish’s 1st 3-night stand headlining any venue since 1990.  Phish’s last Atlanta show on had been cut nearly in half by a bizarre sewage flood in the venue prompting Trey to promise the exuberant crowd “we’ll make it up to you”.  This show happened on Fish’s 28th birthday.  Trey sang the verses of Fee through the megaphone.  Trey’s Fly Famous Mockingbird narration was about the 3/28/92 Variety Playhouse flood that cut that show short with a story about circling backwards through time to the last Atlanta show hearing “…we’re gonna make it up to you, we’re gonna make it up to you”.  My Friend My Friend began with Trey on acoustic guitar.  To celebrate Fish’s birthday, Moby Dick was intertwined with the David Bowie intro and outro complete with Fish drum and vacuum solos, Happy Birthday, The Simpsons secret language and Jingle Jangle Jingle teases.  Lawn Boy was dedicated to Page’s parents, who were at the show.  Jimmy Herring joined the band on Trey’s backup Languedoc guitar for Funky Bitch, My Sweet One, Hold Your Head Up and Llama.  During Hold Your Head Up, Trey, the band and some of the audience started a “Bruce” chant in an attempt to convince Col. Bruce Hampton to come up and play trombone.  During Love You, before Fish’s vacuum solo, the band presented him with a birthday cake and a Flavor Flav clock necklace (so he would never be late for the bus again).  Amazing Grace was dedicated to Page’s dad and was performed without microphones.  AC/DC Bag had been requested by and was dedicated to “Hack” on his 21st birthday.  This entire run of three Roxy Theatre shows was released in 2008 as an 8-CD box set entitled Phish At The Roxy.
