Show Notes

This was Phish’s sixth and final show at The Bayou.  It was an 18-and-over gig – dubbed the second “Mrs. Pizza Shit” show because of band “slice of pizza, bucket of lard” vocalizations and references that started during the soundcheck and dotted the show.  A guitar fingerpicker (possibly named Mike or Michael) was the opening act.  The venue showed a live video of Rush between the opening act and when Phish took the stage for set I.  After Bathtub Gin, Fish (accompanied by Trey’s “translation”) reiterated that the new band name was Mrs. Pizza Shit.  After Brother, Trey dedicated the song to his sister Kristy and mentioned all the siblings, his mom and two Phish lyricists in the audience (Tom Marshall and Susannah Goodman whose given name was misspelled in the “Lawn Boy” liner notes).  During Tom’s introduction, Trey referred to Sparkle and It’s Ice as new songs.  You Enjoy Myself began with a false start during which Trey confirmed that the band had indeed changed its name to Mrs. Pizza Shit.  Mike teased The Brady Bunch Theme during YEM and the vocal subsequent vocal jam included more “Mrs. Pizza Shit” and a bit of William Tell Overture.  Reportedly Trey at one point, possibly during You Enjoy Myself, strummed his guitar with a slice of pizza “borrowed” from a waitress.  The band teased Sanity before Terrapin and Fish almost sang it but he didn’t know the words.  Fish played a fairly long, three-minute-plus vacuum solo during Terrapin.  Llama included a silent bass solo due to equipment problems during which Trey introduced Mike as “the master of restraint.”
