Cincinnati Music Hall, Cincinnati, OH

Much like the OJ show, this show was infamous on rec.music.phish almost immediately. Also like the OJ show, it wasn’t for some outstanding jams or anything, just for the craziness of the fire alarm. It’s another one I had tapes of early on, too. I know this show.

That said, I listened on the plane while traveling back to the states. I’m exhausted and writing about it on Sunday. Jetlag is a bitch!

Not going into great detail here for those reasons… but check out the Melt. It will surprise you! Also, the Hood is intensely great with a unique quiet section and the BBFCFM fun is worth checking out even if the acoustic segment is hard to hear.

That’s all for today. Thanks for reading.

Encore: Amazing Grace

Notes: After a few lines of The Horse, the fire alarm went off. The band kept playing but the house lights came on and the building was cleared for 20 minutes. The music resumed with Fire, and that was the only “set break.” My Friend included a Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo jam and a brief Moby Dick tease from Trey. SOAM subsequently included additional Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo teases and an atypical jam. Chalk Dust contained Barracuda teases. Suzy contained a Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo tease from Trey. Ginseng Sullivan through Dog Faced Boy were performed acoustic and without microphones, and Sweet Adeline and Amazing Grace were performed without microphones.
