Setlists Matching City: Plainfield, State: VT, Country: USA, All Artists


This was a benefit for Goddard’s sculpture building and marked the first known performance of Kung. The band’s Halloween costumes included Trey wearing devil horns, latex pants, and strap-on breasts (which he ran around fondling during Ninja Custodian’s set) and Mike wearing a dog-faced mask. The band distributed boxes of macaroni and cheese for audience use during the Bowie intro. This Bowie, at over 20 minutes, was, at the time, one of the longest versions ever. During the pause in Letter to Jimmy Page, Trey wished happy birthday to "Mary Ellen." Lizards contained an I Dream of Jeannie theme tease from Page. The show closed with Trey returning to the Kung theme, as he promised to stage another runaway golf cart marathon this time next year. Ninja Custodian was the opening act.

Suzy and BBFCFM included Sailor's Hornpipe teases from Trey. Page, Mike, and Fish noodled around with the Hood intro while Trey conducted the costume contest. A fan dressed as Harry Hood won! Bobby Brown sat in on harmonica for Curtis Loew, Richard Wright provided vocals for Halley’s, and Russ Remington sat in on saxophone from Timber through Funky Bitch. Terrapin and I Didn't Know featured Fish on trombone. Wilson was unfinished. This show included the first known performance of Foam and the first known Phish performances of Time Loves a Hero and Donna Lee. Page and Fish teased Terrapin Station before Terrapin.

"Springfest" at Goddard. Fire was dedicated to Bobby Brown; JJLC subsequently featured Bobby on harmonica. JJLC also featured an appearance by three-year-old Cameron McKinney, whom Trey announced was “playing guitar.” I Didn’t Know and Halley's Comet featured Richard Wright adding additional vocals. I Didn't Know featured Wright on drums and Fish on trombone. Prior to I Didn't Know, Trey introduced Fish as "the second best trombonist drummer in all of Vermont." After Light Up, Trey introduced the crowd to Marley and sang to her both before and during YEM. BBFCFM was dedicated to Donald Fagen and Walter Becker of the band Steely Dan. Take the ‘A’ Train, which was preceded by Rockin' into the Night and HYHU teases, featured Carl Boyle on saxophone.

This show was a double bill with The Joneses, and featured the first known performance of Love You. The jam before Whipping Post included Low Rider teases. Whipping Post had a lyric changed to "slice my nipple." It has been reported that Fish shaved his entire body for this show!

This gig was part of Goddard’s SpringFest.

Free Bird was an actual attempt at the song and not an a cappella version, but was performed quite mockingly and not in its entirety. It did, however, feature Ninja Mike on vocals. Happy Birthday was sung to “Sue and Debra” and was a long, reggae-influenced version. Tell Me Something Good featured an unidentified female lead vocalist. Jim Pollock offered vocals for the only known performance of Freeworld. This show featured the first known Phish performances of Free Bird, Tell Me Something Good, and Freeworld.

This show was a co-bill with The Joneses. Trey and Mike quoted Fuck Your Face and Minkin during the Melt the Guns intro. Have Mercy featured Jah Roy on vocals. Halley’s Comet featured Richard Wright on vocals. This show contained the first known version of David Bowie.

This show featured the first known performances of Golgi Apparatus and Wilson.

While a complete setlist for this “Springfest” performance at Goddard is not known, it has been confirmed that Halley’s debuted at this show with Richard Wright on vocals. Back Porch Boogie Blues also made its first known Phish performance. This is the last known Phish show with Jeff Holdsworth as an official member of the band.

This list for Set II is likely incomplete, as the only recording that circulates fades in and out at points. The “Whipping Post Jam” fades in after Mike’s Song on the recording that circulates. This “Jam” contained jams reminiscent of The Grateful Dead’s The Other One and Dark Star. It also featured Norwegian Wood teases from Mike, a Slave to the Traffic Light tease from Trey, and a jam reminiscent of the early intro to Harry Hood. Antelope fades in after the “Whipping Post Jam” fades out. The complete lists for Sets I (featuring the first known Phish performance of Wild Thing) and II are not known, although Mike has referenced the first set Wild Thing in interviews and in The Phish Book.

"Halloween Fest" This would have been Phish’s first Halloween celebration, but they were unable to play. References to the show are made in The Phish Book; for audio comments, dig deep into the Hunt’s show four nights later.
