Phish MSG 2013



EncoreGrindShow of Life
Notes: This show was officially webcast via After the conclusion of the first set, Trey and Page carried a keyboard-shaped cake out to the front of the stage (with a giant two-dimensional mountain behind it, this created a tableau of the cover of Phish's Colorado '88 release), and proceeded to slice and serve cake in honor of their 30th anniversary to fans near the front of the stage. After the cake was served, a video was played showing Fishman collecting various props from the band's previous New Year's Eve concerts and driving a replica of the band's "JEMP" truck down to New York City. The truck from the video appeared in Madison Square Garden and was moved to the center of the floor. All of the songs played during both setbreaks were from the year 1983. The band performed the second set standing on top of the truck, using a stripped-down stage setup including hockey sticks for mic stands. Melt contained a DEG tease from Trey. During Grind, the "days lived" stated by the band referenced how old they would be when they returned for their 60th anniversary. During the encore break, a video montage of photographs and film from throughout Phish's history and previous New Year's Eve concerts was shown. After the encore, a video image was shown of a "Save the Date" card for Phish's 60th anniversary show (on December 31, 2043) with each band member digitally aged.

Phish Atlantic City 2013

Notes: Breaking with tradition, Phish donned a musical costume "from the future," a yet to be recorded album that will apparently be entitled, Wingsuit. All of the songs in the second set were debuts other than Winterqueen, which was played by TAB on October 1, 2011. Wingsuit ended with Mike on power drill. Monica, Snow and Amidst the Peals of Laughter were all performed acoustic, and Amidst the Peals of Laughter was performed as a Page and Trey duet.  Wombat featured the dance stylings of Abe Vigoda and the Abe Vigoda Dancers. Antelope also featured alternate lyrics referencing the Abe Vigoda Dancers.

· Get Back and Under Pressure teases in Twist

· Theme from The Rockford Files tease in Boogie On Reggae Woman
Notes: Runaway Jim contained quotes by Trey of the song "Shaft," including, "Who's the green private dick who's a sex machine to all the chicks? Cactus! John Cactus." Before Halfway to the Moon, Trey noted that the band is excited about the tune, and he hopes that it makes the new album, Wingsuit. Bowie featured teases of Jesus Just Left Chicago (in the intro) and Beethoven's 5th Symphony (in the jam). Twist included a Get Back tease and an Under Pressure jam. The keywords for Makisupa were "Bush" and "O.G. Kush." Both keywords were repeated throughout this version of Makisupa and were referenced later in the set during Boogie On, which also included a tease of the theme from The Rockford Files by Mike. Sally contained a Shaft quote and ended with a Call to the Post tease

· Theme from Shaft quote in Theme From the Bottom
· The Tears of a Clown tease in Down with Disease
· Theme from The Odd Couple tease in Tweezer
· Rhapsody in Blue tease in Tweezer Reprise
Notes: Prior to the start of the first set, Trey brought out a jack-o'-lantern with the Wilson logo carved into it and set it down before beginning Wilson. Theme contained a funk jam with quotes of the Theme from Shaft ("Who's the Chuck Norris-looking private dick who's a sex machine with all the chicks?"), and banter about Fish's least favorite and second-least favorite presidents ("Bush"), and favorite beer ("Busch"). DWD contained a tease of Tears of a Clown by Mike, lyrics changed to "swinging on my bush," and was unfinished. Mike used the power drill in the Piper intro. Trey teased the Odd Couple Theme in Tweezer and Page teased Rhapsody in Blue in Tweezer Reprise.
