    Hey-oh! Phish fans. Rejoice. Tour is but one brief 23 hour period away. That’s nigh to nil in this lifetime. Tomorrow we will bask in the boundary-less beauty that is the bliss of the Phantastic Four.

    Get your groove on now, fellas!

  4. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    BigJig – are you and butter set up with dual laptops so you can both post from the tour road?

  5. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    Oh – looking forward to hanging with you at nTelos on Tuesday.

    I’m not even sure I’m ready for the show. But it’s going to happen. Awesome.

    When in Rome, Gino’s East (Rosatis or Salernos if you want thin crust) Better get my fill now considering my food intake is about the head south over the next week and a half.

    “See you tomorrow. And, Remember to eat a green thing every day” (the check out clerk says to the pregnant girl while selling her beer and cigarettes)

  8. bigjig Says:

    Dueling not Dual, you’ll come to find out that we tend to have a lot of friendly competition. Can’t wait for ntelos should be a blast.

  15. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    7.25.99. Only eclipsed by 14/32/20.

    Sorry. Don’t know that show by date. Just being a late night jack asse.

    I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the prompt.

    @ BigJig and Butter – I’m driving from Greenville all day Tuesday. Going to leave about 8am which should put me at the Gov. Dinwiddle around 3:30 in the afternoon. Assuming you two will be at the Marriott still, I’ll walk myself the three or four blocks over there in due course.

  16. [Not Tom] Marshall Says:

    Or the Renaissance – maybe that’s the one.

    Oakland flight booked for the Greek!

  18. butter Says:

    Renn …yes in the marriot family

  19. Mr. Completely Says:

    weird duplicate post

    time to go home I think

  20. bigjig Says:

    sounds like a plan. I assume that we will be at the Marriott as well, unless we get kicked out, which is also in the realm of possibilities. In that case you may have to call our wives before you come pick us up.

  21. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    cake is fuckin tight. idk what it is but they have their sound figured out and its perfect.

  22. gavinsdad Says:

    cake or spoon?

    i feel like both have that same thing that purple mentioned. band identities = locked.

  23. gavinsdad Says:

    oh yeah….happened to listen to some hampton 09 yesterday…maybe it was the mix that got Leo his MVP award? he was really mixed right. also, mike g…so interested in what he’ll be like this tour…during the Div Sky from Hampton he was performing basscrobatics. so good.

  24. Mr. Completely Says:

    huh good point @gdad

    I agree

    I like Cake more but Spoon is definitely coming from a particular musical POV


    wow what perfect timing! I just booked my Greek flights, and my wife called to say the tickets arrived!

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH to the BB benefactor who helped me out!!!!!
