This setlist is incomplete; it is also possible this is the second of three sets. Before YEM, Trey declined a request from an audience member, “Del,” and notes that: “Last night was Del request night because you graduated... if you get a Masters we’ll do another request for you.” YEM was dedicated to audience member “Ed” with Trey remarking that he wrote the beginning of YEM while in class with him. I Didn't Know featured Fish on trombone.

Review by SlavePhan

SlavePhan Not an enormous amount to report about this show as it is overshadowed by the following night. This show as played on a Monday at Nectar's and the band had just played several out-of-state gigs earlier in the month. This is also in the middle of a 4-show run at Nectar's, so I imagine the band was a bit burnt out at the time. The playing shows, as there really isn't anything out of the ordinary here.

Never-the-less, the band opens with an A-Train containing a nice Mike Solo. Del Martin, the sound engineer, requests 'Clod', but Trey rejects the request, perhaps one of the few actual rejections that the band has given (see also 12/14/95 or 11/22/97). The YEM here is dedicated to a classmate of Trey's, who apparently was in class with Trey while he wrote the introduction to the song. THere are heavy DEG teases in this version if you are a fan of YEM>DEG.

Light Up serves as the band's sole real depart from their standards, however, it's short and sweet. Trey hardly even introduces Fishman during I Didn't Know, only acknowledging him as Moses. The GTBT closer is scorching here, though, with lots of screechy Trey wail.

Really, not much to see here. A short set with limited replay.
