After the destruction that Hurricane Sandy cause along the East Coast last October, Phish’s The Waterwheel Foundation jumped into action, auctioning off tickets for the band’s New Years Eve run with the help of the Mimi Fishman Foundation. After raising over $10,000, the band is not through, as JEMP Records has announced that the band’s 5/9/93 show will be released, with all proceeds continuing to goto The Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties and The Food Bank of New York City.

Phish’s Facebook page has some excellent background info and a synopsis of the show, which can be read below:

“New Brunswick was 67th on the tour of 73 shows spanning February through May. The location was significant as Trey and Page have roots in New Jersey and this was only their second headline show in the state. Set I highlights included the Buried Alive opener with extended piano intro, a standout Weigh > Chalk Dust Torture, Colonel Forbin’s Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird/Vibration Of Life (during which, according to Trey’s narration, Paul administered memory-erasing gas) and remnants of Mockingbird reverberated into Possum.

Set II blasted off with a non-stop succession that began with AC/DC Bag > The Curtain followed by a must-hear combination of Tweezer > Manteca > Tweezer. During Tweezer the band gave a nod to fellow New Jerseyan Carole King by weaving I Feel The Earth Move into the jam. Runaway Jim followed by Big Ball Jam, Love You and My Sweet One put the spotlight on Fish before the classic close of Amazing Grace and Highway To Hell.”
