  2. I'd be interested in any recordings of House of David Gang, High Plains Drifter, Aaron MacDonald Band ... I could help pass along Diesel Dog recordings. I believe BradM recorded Fertile Ground, The Slip, JSB, GTB shows that I was a part of.... although I think many of those are up on etree. Definitely open to getting some of those recordings, thanks for thinking of me . I'll send you this as an email now. BIG UPS TO BRADM!

  9. I was at the show too. The set list was great and although it was a shit show trying to get out of there I was still happy with the concert. Was really happy to hear some deep cuts like "Before the Make Me Run" --- I grew up on the Some Girls album, my parents would play on all our family trips. I was supposed to see them back in 1994 on the Voodoo Lounge tour at The CNE Stadium ... . Stone Temple Pilots were opening. I was living out near Cobourg for the summer working at a Provincial Park and my Greyhound bus was late leaving and I missed meeting up with my friends who had the tickets. Pre-cell phone days made it near impossible to just show up and meet-up with them. Here's the set list:

  12. That was great, I ran into some many people, it was hugs all around. Wish I ran into more of ya. I did meet-up with Mr Slippery, hadn't seem him in 10 years, except briefly over a year ago downtown. Hoping to run into ya again brother, I hope you had a great one. Seemed pretty packed last night, I hope that they come back in a few years. My only small gripe is that they ended on an unknown song, if curfew was 11pm, they still had 7 mins to crush one last one. Did any of you see Yo? He was so smashed. https://www.instagram.com/stories/synappsmusic/ Setlist and Some videos here: https://livemusicblog.com/news/phish-toronto-setlist-stream/

  18. According to the book, Jeff's jumping out of his chair was an ongoing gag. Musicians would get really close to Jeff and he'd surprise the hell out of them by jumping out of his chair and stealing the show.
