Show Notes

Phish’s first official show of Spring took place at the Crest Theatre – a historic vaudeville house originally dating to 1912 with a capacity of 932. Reportedly the venue was not over-crowded. This show’s soundcheck included the 1st known performance of Two Princes (Spin Doctors cover). The band picked set II of this show to deliver the 3rd live performance of Trey’s Thesis “The Man Who Stepped into Yesterday”, commonly known as “Gamehendge”. Using It’s Ice as a jumping-off point, The Lizards through McGrupp And The Watchful Hosemasters featured Trey’s narration accompanied by The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday theme, placing this show in the history books with 3/12/88, 10/13/91 and a select few to-come. Following Gamehendge immediately with Mike’s Groove had the effect of nearly blowing the roof off The Crest, prompting Mike to tease Sundown (Gordon Lightfoot cover) during Weekapaug Groove. Amazing Grace was performed without microphones. As had been the case with several key gigs in recent years, the band made a point to seed soundboard recordings of this show soon after it happened, quickly earning it a place among the most circulated of all Phish recordings.
