This week’s 21st episode of Dinner and movie takes us 8 years (almost to the day) back to the band’s 2012 summer tour in two stages. 2012 marked the last year that Phish split his summer tour of the US into two separate sections, a trend that started in 2004 before the band broke up and persisted once Phish reunited in 2009. 2012 was also back in the days of the tour’s “announcement videos”. posted by the group. Each of the two stops on the 2012 summer tour has its own announcement video, and each is as weird and fun as you would expect from this group. To concern Jon fishman get her Rocky sur, dip into the junk food and take some advertisements for the high-end “Gordeaux” (with Mike Gordon) in preparation for the 2012 two-part summer Phish tour below:

the one tonight Dinner and movie will present a full replay of the third and final night of Phish’s first-ever performance at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, a venue that would become a regular stop on the band’s tour in subsequent years. The intimate 8,500-seat hall offered one of the only indoor shows of the summer as well as one of its smaller venues. Given that the 2012 summer campaign was somewhat inconsistent and notably short of long jams, the 8/19/12 performance instantly rose to the top of many fans’ “Best of 2012” lists due to its performance. depth of improvisation.

The first set of 8/19/12 was relatively standard fare in 2012, with a number of high-turnover tracks like “Crowd Control”, “Party Time”, “Axilla”, “Reba”, “Free”, ” Mound “,” Walk Away “and” USIN “. Things started to get a little more interesting with a slightly improvised ‘Back On The Train’, ‘Gotta Jibboo’> a soaring ‘Roggae’ and a ‘David Bowie’.
The main event here, however, is set two. The band returned to the stage for the second picture and launched into Talking heads‘”Struck out and painless”. Behind skillfully playing by Trey Anastasio and Mike Gordon, this “Crosseyed” reached unusual heights throughout its nearly 17-minute duration, which dethroned Alpine’s 6/21/09 version as the longest jam on the song since before the breakup.
The band were far from done with their improvisation ambitions, as “Crosseyed” moved on to a fantastic rendition of “Light”, which really started to become a jam vehicle in the summer of 2012. Just before the start. 15 minutes bar (and after a fun teasing of Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies”), the band performed a smooth transition to “Sneakin’ Sally Through The Alley”. With Gordon and Fishman laying the groundwork, “Sally” picked up where the “Light” jam left off, representing over 10 minutes of electrifying play. “Light” and “Sally” were both infused with “Crosseyed” teasing, and the building went nuts as the group seriously returned to “Crosseyed and Painless” for a brief cover. Those first 45 minutes of the second series are top notch live phishing no matter what era they might be from.
“Theme From The Bottom,” “Rocky Top,” “Boogie On Reggae Woman,” “Meatstick” and “Bug” all sounded like a victory lap after the “Crosseyed” sandwich that started the frame, but the “You Enjoy Myself “” that closed it was the real exclamation point against a stellar setting. Finally, the band returned to the stage for a encore of “Ride Captain Ride” (with additional cheers for the appropriate lyrics of “San Francisco Bay”) followed by the always-due “Tweezer Reprise” after the “Tweezer” on the first night of the race.
It’s fun, guys. Enjoy! As always, the party starts at 8:30 am ET You can check out some photos from the show captured by the photographer Dave vann below:
