Phish: new archival release 08/26/1993 Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Portland, OR

Another archival Phish release is available for streaming and download: 08/26/1993 Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Portland, OR.

On August 26th, near the end of their celebrated summer 1993 tour, Phish played the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland, Oregon. “The Schnitz” is an historic Italian Renaissance style movie/vaudeville house that originally opened in 1928 with a capacity of 2,808. Home to the Oregon Symphony, the venue is well known for its excellent acoustics and opulent decor. Seattle’s Baby Gramps, “The Salvador Dali of Folk Music”, was the opening act in Portland and the two previous Pacific Northwest shows in Vancouver and Seattle. This was Phish’s only show at The Schnitz and they lit it up.
A stacked Set I kicked off the festivities, featuring standout performances of Runaway Jim, Reba, Fee, Split Open And Melt, Esther, and It’s Ice > Harry Hood. Set II continued the onslaught with a blistering 2001 > David Bowie, the second such combination ever played. Other set II highlights included Jesus Just Left Chicago and a Fishman-Baby Gramps duet (on vacuum and guitar respectively) on Gramps’ Nothin’ But A Nothin’. Chalk Dust Torture and 1993’s last Free Bird encore sealed the deal.
