May 13th, 1994: Hayden Square, Tempe AZ

The final non-west coast performance of spring ’94 brings Phish to Hayden Square in Tempe, Arizona following a string of shows since the Bomb Factory that have been solid but unexceptional. A very good “Runaway Jim” opens the show. Even … Continue reading

April 8th, 1994: Recreation Hall, State College PA

Phish returns from their brief Canadian sojourn tonight for show #4 of ’94. “Maze” makes a rare appearance as show-opener to kick off the night. Page’s solo is good, but Trey’s is better. He throws an effect on his guitar … Continue reading

March 19th, 1993: The Greek Theatre, Redlands CA

No, notĀ thatĀ Greek Theatre in Berkeley that was a frequent haunt of the Grateful Dead, and occasionally, latter-day Phish. This is a different, less-storied Greek Theatre about an hour west of LA. A recording of tonight’s soundcheck circulates, so the story … Continue reading
