‘The Beacon Jams’ Setlists: 10 Songs Trey Anastasio Hasn’t Played Yet

Advertisement

Tonight, Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio concludes his eight-week, Friday night The Beacon Jams residency at The Beacon Theatre in New York City. The setlists have contained no repeated songs through the first seven shows of the run. Phish.net setlist guru Scott Marks compiled a spreadsheet tracking what Trey has and has not yet played, with 133 different songs performed so far.

According to The Beacon Jams Song Chart spreadsheet, the 10 most played songs written by Anastasio and first performed solo (either with the Trey Anastasio Band or its one-off precursor 8 Foot Fluorescent Tubes or the short-lived 70 Volt Parade), are “First Tube,” “Cayman Review,” “Drifting,” “Night Speaks to a Woman,” “Shine,” “Tuesday,” “Mozambique,” “Simple Twist Up Dave,” “Come As Melody” and “Ether Sunday.” Phish’s instrumental “Magilla,” written by keyboardist Page McConnell, is the ninth most played Trey solo song absent thus far from The Beacon.

Below are 10 videos from the JamBase Live Video Archive (JBLVA) featuring Trey performing those 10 originals that have yet to make it into a Beacon Jams setlist. The videos feature a variety of TAB lineups and footage from a solo acoustic set at the Newport Folk Festival. Click each video to start at the song indicated for each entry.
