    20. What lasting impact will Joy material have in setlists?
    Light will blow up but I don’t think there will be too many ocelots

    19.What will Trey’s “show shirt” be this tour?
    Pepé Le Pew & a blazer

    18. What new covers, if any, will the band incorporate into their shows? post 1970’s covers, perhaps?

    17.”Free” : Do or Die?
    Die…

    16. Which shows will smoke harder – SPAC, Camden, or Atlanta?
    They don’t call it HOTLanta for nothin’

    15. What songs will emerge as the prominent jam vehicles of the month?
    I’d love a Tube comeback, but I think it’ll be Light or SOAM…pyscho-delic style

    14. Will the band minimize or shelve “Time Turns Elastic” after leaving it off the New Year’s Run?
    Kiss it goodbye

    Exile

    13. Will Exile have a lasting impact on the band’s setlists and/or style?
    Definitely – a little grit is gonna go a long way

    12. When will Phish bust out “Liquid Time?”
    3rd show, 2nd set opener

    11. Will meathead Merriweather security guards ever stop pretending to be bouncers at New York night clubs?
    Never.

    10. How will the ticket scene shake out? Scarce? On the ground? In between?
    Depends on the show, but phans sure aren’t traveling like they used to so on the ground may be a safe route

    9. Will Tuesdays prove tremendous at Portsmouth, Great Woods, and Canandaigua?
    Tuesday’s gone with the wind

    8. Will “Fluffhead” gracefully fade into the background as a symbol of 2009?
    No, CK5 has his lighting rigged for epic mind blowing sequences on this song – would be a waste to stop it now

    7. Will Miami prove to be a baseline for jams in 2010?
    Most definitely

    6. Will “Show of Life” debut in Chicago?
    Will Chicago debut in Chicago? 25 or 6 to 4!

    5. Was “Golden Age” one and done?
    Yep.

    4. More open jamming?
    Definitely – more risk taking, more unpredictable bustouts and some secret language to boot

    3. Will “Mike’s Song” return to prominence or remain an eight-minute, custy anthem?
    Mike’s is going to blow up because Cactus deserves it

    2. How will the Flyers fate in the NHL Finals effect Trey’s head space going into tour?
    Ha.

    Sweet.

  3. Lily Says:

    Awesome post

  4. Willowed Says:

    Wild Gold Bond replace confectioners sugar as the sweet treat you sprinkle on your donuts?
    Yup

  5. Willowed Says:

    Will I buy at least one edible item on the lot this tour that will give me the runs?
    Yup

  6. hairy pood Says:

    am I super stoked to be returning to SPAC for a second birthday show there and bring my father (old school deadhead) to his first phish show?

  7. hairy pood Says:

    … on father’s day?

  8. Mr. Murphy Says:

    Will my mind handle fungus+my birthday show?

    Will AW toss a glowstick this summer for old times sake?

  11. gavinsdad Says:

    Will my transition to gold bond be my personal 2.0?

  12. gavinsdad Says:

    Will everyone on this board remember that I called “Party Time” Phish’s “Aiko Aiko”?

  13. angryjoggerz Says:

    Will bored, jaded phans roll their eyes and talk about how the band used to be better while trying to make it seem cool to not care?

    Yes, but fuck them.

  14. angryjoggerz Says:

    Ps. Mona is the boss.

  15. Wilson8or Says:

    What the bleep am i going to do if there’s a game 7 on Friday? What’s Trey going to do? Even if youre not a Blackhawks fan: as a PHISH fan, you need to pull for the Hawks to win tonight, so that Trey gets at least a day to process a loss before showtime. IF the game is going on during the show, I think it will suffer in quality. Nervous, very nervous

  16. KWL Says:

    mona says fuck them!

  17. angryjoggerz Says:

    Oh, and by the way everyone: Plan your drive to Chicago well in advance of the start time. Not only might there be a game 7 that night, but also the Cubs are playing the White Sox up at Wrigley. Should be a traffic zoo

  19. El Duderino Says:

    Iko Iko

  20. bouncin fan Says:

    There will be no game 7

    Go hawks!

    Will any of the oldschool shorter arrangements of tube, gumbo and halleys get blown up?

    Will roses get some jam love?

    Can they nail a rift in 3.0?

    Is the vacuum retired?

    Can pronger play worse than his minus five in game 5?

  21. Willowed Says:

    Will Beat Street and Breakin’ 1 and 2 ever be mentioned as one of the best musicals of all time?

  22. Willowed Says:

    Will Turbo and Ozone ever sit in with the boys?

  23. angryjoggerz Says:

    Cubs, Sox, Phish, Hawks, Blues Fest, Rib Fest, Friday in the city….

    Gonna be lots of traffic

  24. bouncin fan Says:

    Also wondering

    There won’t be nearly as many tix on lot. Last year scalpers and fans loaded up and got fucked resulting in mad extras.

    This year all those tix are still at ticketmaster. After last year everyone is waiting for free tix that there won’t be as much of.

    Will they go to the ticket booth instead.

    Or will a lot of shows be empty as hell

  25. Wilson8or Says:

    Oh yeah..forgot about Blues fest. Fahrvergnügen!
