Video of the Week: 1996-11-11 Tweezer

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 4 comments Link:, posted in the Video category

The first video from 1996-11-11 just surfaced on YouTube. While there is nothing particularly remarkable about this show from Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, MI, it is worth pointing out that Phish only played there twice. And both dates were November 11th. They returned two years later in 1998 as well. Anyway, it is great to see a few videos and listen in right before the Cow Funk era of 1997 was in full force. This Tweezer which came midway through the second set, is a prime example of Phish setting the table for the era to come.

DollarBill I love to see this kind of stuff. I was at this show, not the best I've seen, but I still have lots of fond memories. My first Brother! I love Theme from the Bottom, Gumbo and The Curtain. This Tweezer is pretty good, and the Swept Away/Steep after that was nice to see. Special thanks to Fishman for making the band double encore with Cavern after a rather lame Waste. Sorry Trey, I just wasn't feeling IT that night.
