Show Notes

This was Phish’s 1st show at Webster Hall – a historic auditorium and concert hall opened in 1907.  The show was scheduled from 10pm to 1am.  It marked the debut of some new material, including the 1st known performances of Carolina (Walter Donaldson/Gus Kahn cover), The Squirming Coil, Caravan (Duke Ellington cover) and Bouncing Around The Room.  Trey teased Purple Haze during Suzy Greenberg and Page teased The Odd Couple theme during Harry Hood.  This was the first show listed in the January/February 1990 Phish Update.  According to The Dartmouth, “the show was organized by Collis Governing Board, according to Jane Demarchi ’90, the former head of CGB. DeMarchi organized the concert with Curt Fish ’90, who was close personal friends with John Paluska, the band’s manager. At the time, the group was enjoying an increase in popularity, and the packed house came as a shock to the organizers.  ‘The place was totally full, and we were worried that there were going to be too many people,’ DeMarchi said. ‘People were camped out in front waiting to get in. I don’t think we had much security. My recollection was me and Curt were manning the door.'”
