After The Asse Festival segment of Guelah, the band launched into Adeline and then moved into a Digital Delay Loop Jam before finishing the song. Adeline was performed without microphones. Trey sang the verses of Fee through a megaphone. My Sweet One was performed acoustic without microphones. YEM included On Broadway teases in both the jam and the vocal jam; it was also teased during Possum. Entrance of the Gladiators was also teased in the YEM vocal jam. HYHU segued out of the YEM vocal jam and included Fish talking about how much he hates that song (though he has nothing personal against Argent, who wrote it). Possum also included Dave’s Energy Guide teases.

Review by StillWading

StillWading Prefacing this review by stating that I don't know how anyone can honestly rate these without having attended/listened to at least ten different shows but probably more like thirty. Yea, a bit of a stats geek but if I could rate those shows I've been a part of either in the moment or after the fact based on trip factor alone; this one certainly stands out from listening to them hold back the laughter during Guelah Papyrus to the On Broadway teases later on in the show, I am having flashbacks literally. Note to self not to revisit those shows I was chemically altered at while attempting to do anything productive going forward. Done forget it, the work I mean. Beautiful If I Could btw.

Review by tube_jam

tube_jam Llama Openers in 94 are common but don't ever underestimate Page!! Trey is on FIRE all 94 and this show is the in the 2nd week of June.

My highlights are DWD > Fee, My Friend My Friend, Uncle Pen, YEM into Hold Your Head Up and It's Ice.

Trey is fucking phenomenal.

Review by LuciusMayweather

LuciusMayweather Was right about dead center for this small show. Cool modern theater, great sound. Being there's no balcony and one big slope, felt like everyone in the place had a good view. Of course the band was tight, it's June '94, Trey was especially going for those mountain climb type runs. I remember being mind altered and folks selling "ReadIcculus" bumper stickers outside. Very little vending scene for a small 1-stop show like this in Iowa. Very fun crowd, you felt like we were seeing the best guitarist of our generation; hey, we were.

Review by SplitOpenAndMule

SplitOpenAndMule I was very surprised to read the reviews here after listening to the show. The setlist has some completely unique moments, and I thought the playing was the most consistently inspired throughout a show I've heard since mid May, and there've been some good shows since then!

Firstly, the soundcheck. Though I don't know of any recordings circulating for this, an experimental Makisupa and Voodoo Chile Jam (likely a rollover joke from 6/13/94's pre-encore tease of the song) reads very well.

First set second song Guelah post-Asse Festival pauses for a Sweet Adeline (that would be noteworthy enough) and is then followed by the wild psychedelia of an excellent Digital Delay Loop Jam (third ever appearance of that jam), before returning to Guelah. Heads should be turning. Rift then captures the sizzling energy the song was written with perfectly, both the intro and outro of DWD has some extra churning effects, and Fee's outro is slightly more extended than usual and is bubblingly beautiful. A few masterfully played songs later, IDK pauses for the very rare unamplified MSO, and then returns to IDK to complete the set's 2nd surprise sandwich. And finally, Split Open and Melt doesn't let up, so much so that at the short set length of 58 minutes, the band decides to end the set after Melt instead of trying to top that jam with anything else.

Second set you get the first set-opening Frankenstein, and what a way to start a set! David Bowie then requires multiple listens to appreciate all it does. The band is locked in, and this jam goes many exciting, diverse, gritty, groovy, DEG-like places. Highly impressive playing all around. It's Ice also gets taken to some very pleasing patterns, and even Sparkle sounds especially on-point tonight. Then comes the YEM, which, following the 6/11/94 Red Rocks version, gives these 2 YEMs a bid for the biggest and best back-to-back versions of a single song played to date. '94 YEMs have been getting extra experimental, if not entirely leaving YEM structure then creating new sub-structures within it. This version straight rocks, with the old school On Broadway tease throwback, and a section where the crowd is so swept away everyone claps along to a mellow section in Trey's solo before getting their heads blown off by the rest of the song. The rare -> out of YEM (3rd of the show after the segues from DWD -> Fee -> MFMF) leads to HYHU and a superb Fishman vocal performance and extra funky vacuum solo in Bike. I love Mike's vocals and playing throughout the set closing Possum. Trey rocks the Possum as he does the Sample encore, and I'm happy for Sample to be the first Hoist song to be given the encore nod.

Also, this night led to some significant band interactions with ZZYZX, recounted in his highly enjoyable tour memoir This Has All Been Wonderful.

The playing tonight is tight and filled with the deep listening creativity I love most in Phish shows. Don't hesitate to listen and Enjoy this sweet one.

Review by Penn42

Penn42 Completely average show. The only song to write home about is the YEM, which has lots and lots of fun interaction throughout. Mike absolutely slays the ending of the Trey jam. It's unfortunate that the bass and drums jam to follow is a little lackluster, but man does he nail the ending of the Trey portion. Nail it I tell yah!

TheEmu This isn't a crazy awesome show, but I love the On Broadway YEM, it's worth quite a few listens.
