Show Notes

This was an all ages, free, daytime “Rincadelt Party” show in an open field at Stanford. The Mar/Apr 92 Phish Update listed the date as “TBA” and the Apr/May 92 Update didn’t list the show. Supposedly the gig was meant to be exclusively for Stanford students but many members of the public attended. There were no tickets, fences or noticeable security. The soundcheck was performed live with a few fans already in attendance. Possum included The Simpsons secret language. Frère Jacques (traditional cover) was teased during Run Like An Antelope. It was a warm, sunny afternoon and in the beginning of Rift, Trey says “squirtgun music” thus invoking the first of many “squirt gun breaks” throughout the show. Trey (and reportedly a local security guard, Gary Herman) took many opportunities to refresh the crowd up front with a Super Soaker squirtgun. Bathtub Gin was sandwiched within the 1st Manteca performed in over a year (since 3/16/91). The show took place on Pesach and Avenu Malkanu included Mike’s “Happy Passover” bass solo. Harry Hood included an extended Linus and Lucy Jam. Linus and Lucy was subsequently teased during the Contact intro. Contact included 7-year-old Cameron McKinney, who joined the band on ukelele (which was inaudible). Cameron stayed onstage for Big Black Furry Creature From Mars, counting off the “1, 2, 3, 4” out of one of the breaks. Monitor Engineer Pete Schall cracked his head open when he ran into a pole playing Band vs. Crew Football at this show, inspiring the line “Pete threw a bomb and he rang the pole” from Trey’s 2001 solo composition Push On ‘Til The Day.
