Show Notes

This was Phish’s third and final show at Sugarbush North and was the second show of the band’s only 2-night stand there. Tickets cost $22.50 and the show was sold out. Many fans were transported to and from the parking lot via: school buses. Trey used his microphone stand as a slide during the opener, My Friend My Friend. During set I, the audience bounced an inflatable moose around the crowd, which eventually landed onstage facing the Pageside audience. This show featured the 1st Timber (Jerry) in two and half years (since 12/30/92) and 1st complete version in nearly six years (since 12/8/89). The first part of David Bowie included teases of God Of Thunder (Kiss cover), Bathtub Gin and Soul Sacrifice before the transition in and out of Johnny B. Goode. David Bowie book-ended Johnny B. Goode for the 1st and only known time. The Lizards was aborted after Trey spaced the lyrics. Fish ribbed him, saying “I think you need a teleprompter Trey”, to which Trey responded by starting Big Black Furry Creature From Mars instead. During Big Black Furry Creature From Mars, Trey threw a bunch of stuff from stage (drinks and the like) before picking up an inflatable George Jetson toy that had bounced onstage and making George “play” guitar. Possum included more teases of Bathtub Gin and Johnny B. Goode Before Amazing Grace, Page threw his pitch pipe into the audience and Trey threatened to throw Fish’s goggles and/or Fish into the crowd Trey also picked up a Hacky Sack that had been thrown onstage and hacked a little with Mike. After this show, the band and crew had a week or so off before appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman to perform Julius on 7/13/95. The Summer 1995 Doniac Schvice arrived in July with fall dates through Halloween and a special tapers’ tickets mail order deadline of July 24 as well as an announcement that “Sometime this fall, Dionysian Productions and Phish Dry Goods will be making a pilgrimage from Massachusetts to the promised land of Vermont.” In August, the band was recognized for their work on “A Live One” with a 3M Visionary Award presented to Phish and Bearsville Studios for helping to “surpass the limits of artistic innovation.”
