Show Notes

This was the second show of a 2-night stand at the Elk Ballroom (believed to part of Telluride Elks Lodge #692). It was an all ages show. Before Fee, Trey said “I want to say that this is quite a collection of undergarments that I’m starting to acquire up here.” The David Bowie intro included Charlie Chan, The Simpsons and Oom Pah Pah secret language. Bathtub Gin included alternate lyrics ”we love to take a hot tub.” Harpua included teases by Mike of On Top Of Old Smokey (traditional). The first performance of Whipping Post in nearly a year (since 11/26/90) featured Fish on slide guitar and vocals. His solo sounded a little like Take Me Out To The Ball Game. During the Hold Your Head Up outro, Trey introduced Fish as Showboat Gertrude and pointed out the world debut – “that was the 1st time Fish has ever played the fretless guitar.” Fish replied “I bet you couldn’t tell either”. Before Horn, Trey thanked Telluride and specifically Kevin “The Crotchmaster” Crochetiere for setting up the gig (and for some “incredible grilled cheese sandwiches”) and asked him to put it together again in the spring.
