Weekend Nuggets: Red Rocks ’95


Phish @ Red Rocks (CoventryBlog)

Phish @ Red Rocks (CoventryBlog)

Everyone vividly remembers Phish’s four-night stand at Red Rocks during Summer ’96, but by that point, the band had already played five shows at Colorado’s live music mecca- one in ’93, two in’94, and these two in ’95.  This two-night stand came towards he beginning of Summer ’95’s space camp.  Featuring extended and exploratory improv every single night of tour, the band reached some incredibly dark places. Check out the “Split,” “Bowie,” or “Mike’s” for musical illustrations of this type of jamming.  Enjoy the history of Red Rocks, as the future will soon be written!

Check out this cool interview with Trey from Red Rocks ’95!

  2. Mr.Miner Says:

    guy- you were four short blocks from my apartment at Kezar! Should have hit me up, would have definitely cruised down for a bit.

  3. Mr.Miner Says:

    wizzle, i know exactly what youre talking about….no idea what it is but that sounds right hairy….

    guy- or you could have come up and hit up some hibbage…..ah well…

  4. hairy pood Says:

    digital technology means you don’t have to flip tape reels over to get reverse sounds. what a strange world, to think i’m about to record on tape with all vintage analog gear. sometimes i question my sanity, then i realize it never came to me.

  5. Happy Birthday Mr. Miner. May your all your PTBM lottery dreams come true. Hopefully, see you at Red Rocks.

  6. Miner, Happy Belated B-Day dude.

  7. guyforget Says:

    Next time, Miner. Will be up for a week+ in the upcoming months to manage a project downtown. my friends live on 43rd & Balboa and will most likely be staying with them. I will be sure this project does not interfere with phish dates!

  8. guyforget Says:

    holy shit, just got my clifford balll dvds. watched disc 1 last night. hands down best dvd release so far. not only the fact that they were smoking that whole weekend, but just the way it’s shot. not too trey heavy, and their playing looks so effortless and like they are just having an absolute blast. End of summer festival would be tits, but i’m not getting greedy.

  9. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    ^ there is hidden bonus material scattered throughout the clifford ball dvds….

    one i found is during the “antelope”…press enter, or start, at the part when you first see the acrobats on the ropes.


    ^ guy I just got through disc3 cann’t believe all the good times i remembered.I got together with my wife dec 96.,so she wasn’t at the ball with me.though she dances around the room as we’ve watch these discs’, she cann’t relate to the feelings I have for this dvd set.(birthday gift.).I thought I missed the first day set, but when i watched the divided sky and remembered being in the crowd thinking only phish could time the pause perfectly with the setting sun.truely amazing, and i was there.

  11. gtgwbab2495 Says:

    has any one else found more bonus material other than the one in antelope? does anyone know for a fact that there even is more bonus stuff other than the one in antelope?

  12. guyforget Says:

    how the hell did you guys figure out to push enter during Antelope????

  13. AintNoTele Says:

    So I’m new to Red Rocks and want to know if the tarp situation is legit…does security really side with anyone laying down a tarp saving a whole row? I’m not trying to start a war here, a simple “yes” or “no” will do

  14. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    @guy…. i heard it through a friend….who heard it through a friend….who heard it through a friend…who’s buddy told him to press enter during the “antelope.” i didn’t believe it until i tried it….and alas….it was true…

  15. ^^Seriously! How the hell did you figure that out??

  16. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    a friend told me….i swear….lol

  17. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    i have no idea how they knew to press enter!

  18. Whole Tour: lol…You didn’t ask him the same question???

  19. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    i guess if you watch it on a computer, a little icon appears….

    it’s kinda like those simpson’s dvds that have deleted scenes.

  20. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    i don’t ask questions….i just do as i’m told….lol

  21. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    “she was freaking out because it wasn’t a rope”

    press enter right as the stage hand comes out to assist the woman with the rope…

  22. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    i’m sure there are more hidden bonuses just like that….
    kinda cool…watching the band…watch the band! drinking brewskis….

  23. gtgwbab2495 Says:

    no, i watched mine on a computer and there wasn’t a little icon. my guess is that the person who first found out accidentally hit the enter button on their keyboard and were very surprised.

  24. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    your right…no icon…just hit it up on my computer to check…

    moral of the story…hit enter every second to see if there are more!

  25. WHOLE TOUR! Says:

    i haven’t tried it with the people on trampolines during tweezer, but my guess is there is probably one there too…or when ben and jerry hit the stage…


  26. gtgwbab2495 Says:

    haha yeah i dont know if there even is more, but when i was watching i tried random times, when ever i thought of pressing it. i wonder if for other times there is bonus material you have to press something other than enter…like a letter or number? that would be impossible to try and find other stuff. but i bet there is some other stuff during ben and jerry, or the trampoline.

    by the way ben and jerry are like the coolest guys ever!

  27. @ AintNoTele

    If you get in early enough you can set a tarp down for you and your friends, however it is all GA so you just gotta go with the flow as the place fills in.

    I have been there plenty of times, sometimes if there are shows with mixed GA & Reserved and people will be adamant in sitting where their ticket tells them to sit

  28. wizzle1986 Says:

    does anyone have an informed guess or can say by experience about when the lottery e-mails will get out? do you get an e-mail if you are denied?

  29. @ AintNoTele

    Saving a whole row would not fly.

  30. gtgwbab2495 Says:

    i dont know if this is for everyone in the whole country, or just east coast, but the email i got said 11:59 PM on tuesday, so i will know wednesday morning.
