For this week’s upcoming Phish webcast, the band is skipping the usual Tuesday celebration for Dinner And A Movie and pushing everything to Labor Day weekend for a full Dicks-pectacular. 🍆
The band will be showing September 1, 2017 on Friday, September 4th, September 1, 2012 on Saturday, September 5th, and finally September 6, 2015 for the “never miss a Sunday show” slot on September 6th, marking the five year anniversary of the T-H-A-N-K-Y-O-U show. Wow.

Antelope opened a show for the first time since January 26, 1990 (1,265 shows). Light included repeated Mercy Mercy Mercy (Joe Zawinul) teases by Page. Fish returned for the encore with a banana, causing Trey to fill time by remarking that Fish almost passed out from rocking so hard during the second set. Therefore, he was handed a banana backstage to revive him. Trey asked the crowd to picture Fish in his dress with a banana, before performing Sleeping Monkey. The soundcheck’s Long Cool Woman contained Telegram Sam (T. Rex) quotes.

This show featured several bustouts: The Landlady (last played December 3, 1994, or 768 shows), Birdwatcher (June 28, 2012, 134 shows), Keyboard Army (December 14, 1995, 684 shows), and Once in a Lifetime (October 31, 1996, 634 shows). Scent of a Mule and NO2 featured Fish on Marimba Lumina. Frankenstein featured Page on keytar. Down with Disease and Harpua were unfinished. Piper included a quote of Rockin’ Down the Highway from Fish with “rollin'” sung instead of “rockin.'” Harpua, After Midnight, Keyboard Army, and Your Pet Cat included narration about Jimmy being a guy from the east coast coming west, having a breathing problem, and needing an oxygen tank (with Trey sucking from an oxygen tank). Trey then said Jimmy started to feel strange and wondered if he should’ve gotten that oxygen tank in the parking lot after the Phish show. Harpua also contained a Glass Onion quote with Trey saying “the Walrus was Page.” Your Pet Cat included narration from Mike about eating Poster Nutbag and finished with a portion of Harpua. Once in a Lifetime contained Harpua quotes. This show featured the Phish debut of United We Stand. During Harpua, Trey mentioned that people writing down the setlist would want to only count Harpua once (by doing this, the encore spelled out THANK YOU).
The band has curated a set of recipes from Phish fans and chefs alike, and they’re putting them all here and telling fans to get prepping early for the weekend event. Next weekend’s beneficiary will be The Mockingbird Foundation.
