Friday, 12/01/1995 Hersheypark Arena, Hershey, PA
Soundcheck: Funky Bitch (half-speed)

Set 1: Buried Alive, Down with Disease, Theme From the Bottom, Poor Heart, Wolfman's Brother, Chalk Dust Torture, Colonel Forbin's Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird, Stash, Cavern

Set 2: Halley's Comet > Mike's Song -> Weekapaug Groove, The Mango Song > Wilson > Suspicious Minds > Hold Your Head Up, David Bowie -> Catapult -> David Bowie

Encore: Suzy Greenberg

Notes: The narration during Colonel Forbin’s Ascent referenced chocolate and the rhombus. Catapult started over the Bowie hi-hat intro, which also featured quotes of Homer Simpson (“mmmm...chocolate”) and a Simpsons signal. Trey flubbed the lyrics to Wolfman’s Brother and remarked that, since he likes them so much, he would sing them again. This was the first time ever that Mike’s and Weekapaug were played without anything in between them.

=================================================================================
Saturday, 02/20/1993 Roxy Theatre, Atlanta, GA
Set 1: Golgi Apparatus, Foam, The Sloth, Possum > Weigh, All Things Reconsidered, The Divided Sky, The Horse > Silent in the Morning, Fluffhead, Cavern

Set 2: Wilson > Reba, Tweezer -> Walk Away -> Tweezer > Glide > Mike's Song -> My Mind's Got a Mind of its Own -> Mike's Song > I Am Hydrogen -> The Vibration of Life -> Kung -> I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove -> Have Mercy -> Weekapaug Groove -> Rock and Roll All Nite Jam -> Weekapaug Groove, Fast Enough for You > Big Ball Jam > Hold Your Head Up > Terrapin > Hold Your Head Up -> Harry Hood, Tweezer Reprise

Encore: Sleeping Monkey

Notes: This long version of Wilson included a Simpsons signal and, towards the end, a freakish jam that included an Iron Man tease from Mike. Reba included a tease of the theme from Woody Woodpecker. Tweezer had a Low Rider jam and a “Straight From the Sewer” rap. Glide subsequently included Tweezer teases. Mike’s Song featured minor lyric changes, three different Tweezer teases, two different Wilson teases, and other teases of Reba, Lizards, and Stash. During Hydrogen before Kung, Trey began the Vibration of Life, Mike teased the Esther “circus” theme and then began quoting from NO2. The Rock and Roll All Nite jam was for fan Jay von Lehe, dressed as Kiss’ Gene Simmons, who the band brought on stage to sing the song’s chorus. Terrapin featured band intros and lots of chatter from Fish, prompting a hurry-up HYHU tease from Page. Fish also performed a lengthy vacuum solo during this tune. The HYHU outro segued into Hood as Fish and Trey switched places. Neither Have Mercy (first since Halloween, 1986, or 671 shows) nor MMGAMOIO were played in their entirety. Walk Away was played for the first time since November 2, 1991 (159 shows).

^I would still take the Hershey DWD over that entire set.
we are all being pursed. some have been found, some are still running. some will keep running until they get to the end of the road, straight off the proverbial cliff. you don't have to turn back, you just have to turn around.

^ I third that. Hershey '95 is one of my favorite shows, and as much as I love the Roxy, it was a bit sloppy compared to Hershey. Not that the Roxy is sloppy really, it's just all over the place, and while it's cool, I really think it's kind of a novelty show.

If you want to know how I feel read my comment on the Bomb factory match-up. You should have rigged the Bomb factory against the Roxy show...that would have been a cool poll. Actually I might set that up as a side-poll cause I'd be interested to hear what the official OKP consensus would be ;)

I don't get how anyone can dislike either of these shows, but 2/20 definitely stands out a lot more than Hershey '95. I can think of a lot of shows from '95 that I prefer to 12/1, but I don't know if there are any from '93 that stand out to me more than that Roxy show.
