Flashback | Tea Leaf Green's Legendary Nectar's Show

The day after Phish called it a career (for five years), JamBase favorites Tea Leaf Green took the stage at Nectar's in Burlington - a venue best known as the place Phish honed their skills before taking the country by storm. Those who were in attendance at the TLG show had high praise for the quartet's performance, which took place ten years ago tonight.

Among the comments posted in regards to Graham Munda's recording on Archive.org are this one from TheBollo, "Coming back from Coventry, Phish's last, we stayed in Burlington for the night before flying back to Chicago. My buddy from Santa Cruz raved about these guys and it was fitting they were at Nectar's. This show blew my face off. I felt like I lost my mind and virginity all in the same night. Wow. Get It. Then give it to 3 of your friends. And so on and so forth." SGraham adds, "This show was epic. I am from the Bay Area but was in Vermont to see the final Phish shows. My flight was out of Burlington the next day so we decided to head down to Nectar's to see the show on the stage that gave rise to Phish. I didn't know what to expect and was totally blown away. This was my first TLG show and they rocked. Everyone was feeling a little somber after the last Phish show but TLG came on stage and brought the house down. Seeing my first TLG show at Nectar's after the final Phish show was watching another great band on the rise. This was my first show and I would recommend it to anyone. These guys rock."

DGold shares, "It's a spectacular show. Nay, legendary. This show quickly acquired a historic reputation, because the band was turning heads at the famous venue Nectar's on this night, one day after the last concert by Vermont's own Phish (a band who got their start at Nectar's nearly 20 years earlier). TLG rose to the occasion and the setting by playing redonkulous song after song. Nice setlist! Some euphoric song-picks (Morning Sun, Garden 3), and different versions of songs like Ride Together. Songs that are new (5000 Acres) and rare (Saw Your Mama, Cherry Red Guitar), plus an abundance of emotional instrumental jams that showcase Josh Clark's rippin' guitar (Asphalt Funk, Baseball Jam, Warmup, and Garden 2)."
