This show was performed on the Redstone campus, is likely incomplete based on song and tape cuts, and may have been two sets instead of three. This show featured the first known performances of Possum, Melt the Guns, and T.V. Theme and the first known public performance of Prep School Hippie. Boxes of macaroni and cheese were passed out to the audience to shake along with the band during Melt the Guns, T.V. Theme, and Sneakin' Sally. Melt the Guns included a macaroni and cheese vocal jam. Anarchy and Revolution were performed twice with the second versions being sung as "Sex Mob" and "Dead Cops" respectively. Trey jokingly introduced McGrupp as "Love the One You're With." The segue between McGrupp and Cities included a jam that would eventually become the end of David Bowie. The band handed out boxes of macaroni and cheese during Melt the Guns for the audience to use as shakers. The source of this setlist is phish.com.
