    i know a few of you would be interested...

    THURSDAY:
    04/15/04 Thomas & Mack Center - Las Vegas, NV

    1: Buried Alive > AC/DC Bag, Limb by Limb, The Moma Dance, The Old Home

    E: Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley

    Notes:"Girls" is a Jay-Z cover (first time played); with Jen Hartswick
    assisting on vocals. "Sally" led loosely into a vocal jam around
    "coconut," then into a rap by Trey about Fish's sonic dress, and then into
    a free-form vocal jam (in other words: Sally > Coconut Vocal Jam -> Sonic
    Dress Rap -> Vocal Jam). For more on the so-called "sonic dress," see
    www.alycesantoro.com/


    FRIDAY:

    E: Harry Hood

    Notes: Toward the end of "Wilson," Trey teased "Little Drummer Boy."
    "Honey" featured the debut of Fish's Sonic Dress (though perhaps just a
    washboard under his dress?).


    SATURDAY:
    04/17/04 Thomas & Mack Center - Las Vegas, NV

    1: Soul Shakedown Party, Haley's Comet > Tweezer, Delta Home, Horn > Sample, Piper > Jam (Frankenstein Tease) > Frankenstein, David Bowie

    * during Y.E.M., Trey put down his guitar, and did the Meatstick dance- three times- and the crowd sang the Meatstick lyircs. **Meatstick teases were prominant during Tweezer Reprise, and the band sang the lyrics 'Time for the Meatstick' and Step into the Meatstick'... along with more of Trey doing the Meatstick dance. #Wolfman's Brother contained a 'Simple' tease...

    Did you go to all three shows?

    Thanks for the update...

    Been to a few phish shows.... one of the best weekends of my life included a phish show (Friday we drove from Moab Ut, to Wolf Mountain in Park City... Friday night we went to a concert with Lenny Kravis, Blues Travelers, Dave Mathews, and Rusted Root... we camped out on top of a ski resort closed for the summer... Sat. we came back down and went to the Phish concert that early evening/evening.... camped again on top of the ski resort... drove back to Moab on Sun.)

    We have about half the river guides in Moab with us... the companies actually had to turn customers away that weekend because there was such a shortage of guides for white water trips :biggrin: ... There were a whole lot of "fun guys", more buds than you could shake a stick at, and a bunch of mirco brew from one of the micro brew shops in Moab (a lot of the staff of the micro brew came, and they supplied the suds for the weekend :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: )... :groove: :beer: :cheers: :drunks:

    Thanks for the nice drive down memory lane...

    speaking of driving... the last phish show I went to we got in an accident on our way to the show... we all were able to walk away from the crash, however we all got banged up pretty bad... nothing like spinning a car in circles going 80 mph on a highway, only to have a F-350 slam into you :paranoid:

    Now that's my kinda weekend! :pimp:

    My buddies and I booked a trip to Vegas for the first weekend in April. A week later, Phish announced their dates there - and we all kicked ourselves!! We almost got lucky - as it turns out, I had no luck at all in Vegas :(

    FCollins,

    Yea, it was a heck of a weekend... only thing missing was a lady friend for gbear (the gal I was seeing at the time wasn't into phish, the "scene" (buds/being a "fun guy"), and couldn't get off work... soooo, gbear went without a lady friend for the weekend :sad2: )

    lv,

    I just read your similar thread on BN... funny how no repsonses on such a big board... frankly I would have thought there would be more folks into phish on this board...??

    Prob. better off that they aren't as popular as they once were... I never did understand why corporate types would take their families to shows, where you would get a "buzz" from breathing the air... not something I would want my child exposed to... to each their own, I guess....

    I first saw Phish in late '91 (I think) at the Newport in Columbus. Incredible show. They came back for two more nights the following spring, which were similarly great. I ended up seeing a bunch of their shows around Ohio and Michigan in the early/mid 90's but really lost interest when in '95 (at Deer Creek), I saw kids that looked half my age getting more f*cked up than me.

    I was fortunate enough to see some great ones (Hara Arena in Dayton, CSU Convocation Center, Peacock Pavillion at Cincinnati Zoo, just to name a few), but really had lost interest in them by the time I moved to Colorado in '97.

    FCollins,

    I still listen to their music... however I doubt I would go to another one of their shows (great band... I'm just not too into going to concerts anymore)...

    i cannot belive what a shithole BN has become... it boggles the mind...

    anyway, i went to all three shows, and it was a great weekend... i thought that Friday was the best concert i had ever seen, and not just limited tophish, but best concert PERIOD... then, the saturday show was just over the top... Trey was obviously loaded, and was having a great time...

    also, i've seen them about 15 times or so, and i have never seen Mike GOrdon play the bass like he did this weekend... he literally took over the first set on Friday, and everyone else just let him go off...

    very cool...

    as an aside, the police presence was about as lax as i have ever seen... at least four different people were selling nitrous on Shakedown Street, and the cops just stood there and watched the hippies huff it... and laughed when they fell down...

    also, i quit smiking weed a few years back, and quite truthfully, i have more fun now than any shows back when i was still in the 'party scene'

    ... i still drink like a phish though... (haha, i'm pretty funny! :biggrin: )
