Old Town, ME

SET 1: Mike's Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove, Carolina, The Squirming Coil, Caravan, Bouncing Around the Room, Split Open and Melt, Tela, The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony > AC/DC Bag, Fee > La Grange

ENCORE: Suzy Greenberg, Communication Breakdown

Although the January/February 1990 Phish Update listed the venue as U. of Maine at Orono and some sources placed this show at other venues (or even dated it a year earlier on 1/25/89), a flyer for the show, and tapes, confirm this date and Penny Post as the venue. A recording of the Fluffhead does not circulate, but early fan reports of the show confirm that it was performed. This setlist may be incomplete, and some songs may be out of order. This show featured the first known Phish performance of Communication Breakdown. Trey teased Purple Haze in Suzy.
