Mike Finally Brings In The Dude in Albany

Almost 14 years to the day after the December 13, 1997 version of Mike’s Song where the members of Phish yelled about bringing in “The Dude” at the nearby Knickerbocker Arena, Steve “Dude of Life” Pollak took the stage with Mike Gordon’s other band last night for a Suzy Greenberg encore that brought the Phish bassist’s solo tour to a close at The Egg in Albany.

The quintet also offered plenty of covers throughout the two sets, attempting another Don’t Do It, a cover of Little Feat’s Skin It Back, their second take on Gillian Welch’s The Way It Goes and the first Won’t Get Fooled Again of the weekend. Sugar Shack was also performed last night, though unlike Friday’s version this one was a standalone version.

Here’s the setlist…
