ENCORE: Sleeping Monkey
Many debuts were played, including Maze, My Friend, Mound, NICU, and Sleeping Monkey. This show also marked the first performance of the “new” revised Rift (the last “old” Rift was May 19, 1990, or 200 shows previous) and presented the formal introduction of the Secret Language Instructions. With the band playing Bowie in the background, Trey introduced the Charlie Chan, Simpsons, Me and My Arrow (Asshole in the Front Row), It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing, Random Note, All Fall Down, and Turn Turn Turn signals. Mike also teased How High the Moon during the Instructions. Trey referred to NICU as “In an Intensive Care Unit,” though that title was later changed, and referred to My Friend as “Knife.” Bowie contained a Milestones and Jeopardy! teases from Page and a Will the Circle Be Unbroken? signal, two Get Back signals, Star Trek, Aw Fuck!, Up Up and Away, Tritone Down, and Me and My Arrow signals, two Complete Stop signals, and It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing and Simpsons signals. Possum included Simpsons, Turn Turn Turn, Aw Fuck!, and All Fall Down signals.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
