This is Brian Bavosa, author of the article. I appreciate you reading, but "If I Could," was not played by PHISH since 6.28.00 at PNC Bank Arts Center in NJ (a show I attended), until last night.
In Vegas '04 (shows I also attended), the band played "Lifeboy," but NOT "If I Could."
Again, thanks for reading and supporting JamBase. I hope you enjoy the summer tour. -BB
