Phish Debuts ‘A Day In The Life’ Cover At Red Rocks, On This Day In 1995

first_imgWhile Phish has settled into Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for their annual Colorado visits, there was a time in the mid-’90s when the band played the beloved Red Rocks Amphitheatre every year. Making their debut at the storied venue in 1993, Phish played the venue nine times between 1993 and 1996, plus four more times in 2009. Between the magic of Red Rocks and of a Phish show, especially during the 1990s, these performances are the stuff of legends.Our Phishtory piece for the day takes phans back to 1995, when Phish wrapped up a two-night run on this day. After laying down a solid show on night one, Phish took things to the next level with a fun performance on June 10th. Any show that opens with “Makisupa Policeman” has our attention, especially when that segues into a crunchy “Llama.”The first set featured a “Prince Caspian > It’s Ice > Free” combination, before going into a rare first-set “You Enjoy Myself” that somehow found its way into a “Hold Your Head Up” segment with a vocal jam. From there, drummer Jon Fishman took the lead on a cover of “Lonesome Cowboy Bill,” a full three years before Phish would perform the Velvet Underground album in its entirety.The second set heated up with some great jams, including a rockin’ “Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove” for the faithful. The biggest surprise of the night, however, came in the encore, when the band debuted their version of The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.” The Beatles classic has become something of a live staple for Phish, popping up in setlists a full 65 more times throughout their career. That this show featured the debut surely cements itself in the Phish history books.Listen to the full show streaming below.[Audio: fromtheaquarium]Setlist: Phish | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO | 6/10/1995Set 1: Makisupa Policeman -> Llama, Prince Caspian > It’s Ice > Free, Rift, You Enjoy Myself -> Hold Your Head Up[1] > Lonesome Cowboy Bill > Hold Your Head Up, Suzy GreenbergSet 2: Maze, Fee[2] > Uncle Pen, Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove, Amazing Grace, Sample in a JarEncore: A Day in the Life[3][1] Vocal jam.[2] Trey sang verses through megaphone.[3] Phish debut.Notes: This show marked the first Phish performance of A Day in the Life.

These problems are ‘men-made’: Sri Mulyani blames men for creating global uncertainties

first_imgShe went on to say that the “men-made” events caused last year’s world economic growth and trade to reach their lowest point since the global financial crisis in 2008.The World Bank projected the global economy to grow by only 2.9 percent in 2019 as global trade and manufacturing activities slowed down last year as a result of trade tensions and financial pressure in advanced countries.In the meantime, the World Trade Organization (WTO) announced last October that it forecast global trade to rise by only 1.2 percent in 2019.“Men created these problems, so men have to fix them,” Sri Mulyani said, followed by applause and cheers from the audience.Despite the situation, she said the government was still optimistic that Indonesia could still maintain robust economic growth while also remaining vigilant about the challenges that lay ahead.She also said that the government would continue to work on its policy choices and utilize to the utmost the available instruments to maintain growth.“We will also conduct structural reform to make sure the good conditions will be sustained and improve in the future,” she said.Topics : Finance Minister Sri Mulyani has laid the blame for the recent and ongoing global uncertainties squarely on men – and she demanded they take the responsibility for fixing them.In a speech at the Mandiri Investment Forum in Jakarta on Wednesday, she said that the uncertain global conditions in 2019—caused by the United States-China trade war, Brexit and protests in many parts of the world—were likely to persist in 2020.“These uncertainties are actually man-made and I’d really like to underline the word ‘man’ here because almost all of them are caused by men,” Sri Mulyani said, citing the protests in Hong Kong as an exception, as the autonomous state is led by chairwoman Carrie Lam.last_img read more
