3/24/1989 - THE PARADISE

Boston, MA

SET 1: Possum, Mike's Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove, Golgi Apparatus > Divided Sky, AC/DC Bag, If I Only Had a Brain, Take the 'A' Train, David Bowie

This setlist is incomplete and is out of order. The only recording in circulation is a mix of songs from the show, which features Hydrogen brutally cut out of the Mike’s Groove. This setlist is in the order in which those songs appear on the mix. (The mix also includes several songs from the Paradise show on January 26, 1989.) Possum contained a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer tease, which raises the question – were these songs really performed in March 1989? David Bowie closed the first set. Before Brain, someone introduced Fish – or is it Phish – as being “from Bogota, Columbia.” It is therefore possible that Brain opened this show, which would be the only (known) time that Brain opened a show.
