|2004-06-17||Brooklyn, NY||6:22||Debut opens the Summer '04 Tour. The jam section is high energy, but also dark and gnarly, with great playing by Trey|
|2004-06-19||Saratoga Springs, NY||17:58||Outstanding "Type II" version. The jam probes the sea floor until finding oceanic bliss around the 9:30 mark. Trey lays back crafting rhythmic textures, while Page deploys the clavinet. What follows is a calming sense of murky haze before the jam gains momentum, ultimately returning to the song proper. > to an exceptional "Piper."|
|2009-06-19||Noblesville, IN||10:56||Standard rendition until the jam takes a turn towards a beatless ambience drenched by Page's synth, which grows loosely percussive and upbeat. > to "Drowned."|
|2010-10-26||Manchester, NH||6:57||Straightforward version that features some nice whole tone scale use by Trey (the "off key" sounding scale).|
|2011-07-03||Watkins Glen, NY||10:15||Stunning exploratory "Type II" version. The jam departs "ASIHTOS" at 4:00 and arrives in a desert haze where the band proceeds to lose itself in a mirage-filled dream, wandering deliriously until emerging in heavenly bliss at 7:00. Led by Mike, this serene music patiently morphs into ambient space, and gradually fades to silence with no return to "ASIHTOS."|
|2014-07-29||Portsmouth, VA||8:39||Jam proceeds in standard fashion before breaking away and settling briefly. Then it regains energy, taking on a textured feel before dissipating.|
|2015-07-22||Bend, OR||8:12||The jam makes a nice modulation to major mode where the band builds to a peak thanks to Trey's melodic playing. After shifting back to minor mode and revisiting the song proper, the jam mode shifts again and > to "Waves." Short but sweet.|
|2017-07-30||New York, NY||18:02||After a nice low-key standard jam, the music dissolves into a delicate guitar scratch/minimal percussion duet, almost like King Crimson's "Moonchild". Page and Mike jump in and add color to the proceedings, then Page and Trey hit on a repeating pattern that reignites the jam. The band wallows in odd '94-style atonality, weird vocals and Mike's envelope filter and all, then a pitch-black late night groove emerges with Page's electric piano at the forefront and Fish adding a militaristic edge. Exceptionally deep music.|
|2017-12-31||New York, NY||18:54||Serving as the anchor of NYE's nautically themed set, this jam rides a current of warm major-key play into a funky groove and then sails to a swell peak before receding into the depths.|
|2018-07-24||San Francisco, CA||14:36||This siren song kicks off with Page on Rhodes and Trey on fast Leslie following Fishman to a quieter, warbly dynamic. Trey eventually goes whale call as the jam moves to bliss pastures in G, eventually moving to a patient build up to a mellow peak. Polyrhythm from Fishman and synth/wurlitzer work from Page ensue as the jam decrescendos. Eventually the jam winds to arhythmic space, until Fishman cues the band back for one final chorus.|
|2018-10-31||Las Vegas, NV||9:24||Compact bliss jam full of sustained whammy guitar leads over a bed of wavy electric piano.|
|2019-06-21||Charlotte, NC||10:06||Wastes no time moving to a warm major key jam (with charming "If I Only Had A Brain" teases) that picks up speed and gets almost tropical at Page's urging, before shifting to some tasty rocking out and letting Mike really shine. A lot of meat packed into a smaller frame.|
|2022-02-25||Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico||11:55||Capping a strong set, this historic version, the first "ASITHOS" to close a show, works well in this important role. Dark, swirling, and effects-laden jamming, wholly dominated by Trey, builds to a series of powerful peaks, Page's accents sublime, the play bright-white, Slave-Like and running, running, and running, leaving all feeling good.|
