Show Notes

This was Phish’s 14th known show and their sixth Doolin’s gig. Note that this date is a Saturday night but Doolin’s gigs (and this one specifically) were Thursday night happy hours. During the Lydian Jam, cartoons were shown behind the band on 6 television screens. The cartoons got faster and faster while the band did the same. If the 2/1/85 setlist was not correct for that date, then this show featured the 1st known public performances of Alumni Blues and Mike’s Song. This show is believed to be the last time the title “Skippy The Wondermouse” was used to refer to McGrupp And The Watchful Hosemasters (see 4/6/85 and beyond). Based on fan reports, there was likely a show on 3/23/85 between this date and the next on 3/29 but the venue is unknown – possibly Doolin’s or Hunt’s.
