– Set 2 contained the entire Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ album.

– Driver was dedicated to “Wendy and Lisa,” and Bittersweet Motel was dedicated to the folks at The Dead Goat Saloon (the site of an open mic night appearance by Trey and Mike one night earlier).
– Moma Dance included Monkey Man teases.
– The Harpua narration picked up where the December 6, 1996 Harpua ended; Jimmy hitched a ride from Vegas to Salt Lake City and the driver was playing Dark Side of the Moon. Dark Side was reportedly chosen the day of the show, partially based on sluggish ticket sales for this one venue compared to the rest of the tour.
– All the Dark Side songs were Phish debuts except for Great Gig (last played July 5, 1994, or 331 shows)
– Smells Like Teen Spirit was also a Phish debut.
