Phish Friday | Chula Vista ’99

1999-09-18mo.jpg

Sorry for the late in the day Phish Friday today, folks. I’m nursin’ a wicked hangover following the Perpetual Groove show at the Martyrs, and my FTP software has been acting up. Such is life.

For today’s selection, I grabbed a somewhat random piece from my own back catalog of shows I had amassed as a fan. There was a fantastic run of shows through California on the Fall 1999 tour, and the show at the Coors Ampitheatre in Chula Vista stood out for me. It’s still absurd to think that it was still a few weeks before I saw the band for the first time at the Redbird Arena show at Illinois State University.

At any rate, the Chula Vista show had a second set that was funky all around. I had it on tape, and I distinctly remember driving through Honolulu later that year listening to this and being mighty impressed with the “Contact > Tweezer Reprise” to end that show.

The night before, Phil Lesh came out for a mega-bass jam / Dead cover segment that had everyone seriously buzzing afterwards. Remember that?

    Sick show. I happened to have seen most of those shows during that Fall tour.

    Boogie On to open Set II was delicious.
