Makisupa Policeman
After rehearsing in September and October, this was the band’s 3rd gig and their 1st show as Phish. This show also spawned the first Phish poster used to advertise a gig – ”Reunion Party” (Have a Heart, Give Us a Hand). This was also the 1st Makisupa Policeman played. While it’s possible this date isn’t real (ie: could be the date of a journal entry) on 10/23/04 Mike stated that it is the real date and recalled that the band played in the garage, using a “borrowed”, self-operated 12-light mechanism with an on on/off switch and that they played a notable version of Makisupa Policeman. Makisupa, while listed here in set I, may have been during any set. The rest of the setlist is unknown.

This show featured the first known performance of Camel Walk and the first known Phish performances of Wild Child, Bertha, Can't You Hear Me Knocking, Eyes of the World, and Whipping Post (which featured Jeff on vocals). CYHMK included a St. Stephen tease. Copies of this performance often circulate with the incorrect date of November 3, 1983. Also, it is possible that this show was actually on Friday, November 2, 1984, as a photo of a flyer for a show on “11/2” was printed in The Phish Book.
