Phish Confirm Lost Show from 1989

A Phish poster from that era

Phish have announced that they were recently able to confirm a previously unknown show at the Lyndon State College cafeteria in Lyndonville, VT on December 2, 1989. A post on their Facebook page reads “A fun rarity today in Phish history. We were able to 100% confirm a previously unknown show from 1989 at Lyndon State College and add it to our database. This show took place in the Lyndon State College cafeteria with a capacity of 180. The setlist is still unknown.”

Band archivist Kevin Shapiro notes,“This show took place in the Lyndon State College cafeteria with a capacity of 180. This was a 18-and-over show that was not listed in the November 1989 Phish Update and was limited to students-only, although it is confirmed that some non-students did make their way inside. This was the band’s only gig at L.S.C. An article in the student newspaper began with “Phish, known in some circles as a psychedelic band and similar to the Grateful Dead and Max Creek, will be coming to Lyndon State College Saturday, December 2. The band has developed a large following from all over the state, however they will be performing to a limited crowd at Lyndon if the 180 person limit is met.” There are no tapes of this performance in archives and it may have gone unrecorded. The setlist is unknown and any additional information about this event is appreciated.”
