Weekend Nuggets: The 4th of July


Official Alpharetta Poster

Phish celebrated July 4th with to in Atlanta’s northern suburbs with the third patriotic weekend of their career. Finishing tour with four sets of energetic music, the band created an all-out party vibe for the tour finale. Within the two shows, improvisational highlights emerged in “Bathtub Gin,” “Antelope,” “Tweezer > Slave,” “Jibboo,” and “Piper > Ghost.” Finishing Independence Day with Rage Against the Machine’s ” Killing in the Name,” sandwiched within a comical, revisionist-history “Harpua” narrative,  Phish created their own pyrotechnics for the holiday.

    Skerik needs to go listen to the Bloomdaddies and then come back.
    Seamus Blake/Chris Cheek with electronics would make him pack up and go. But, I digress…

    I’m just happy to see a fellow sax player getting some attention from the “jam” crowd — can’t believe I just called it that.

    Off to bed.
    Nighty knute kids…

    i wasn’t woken up by it that’s for sure…just awake watchin music while night turned to day

    i dig Mike D too

    after hours of that instrument while tripping it just got a little annoying
    that is all 😉

    Game On!

    I updated the survey and we’re ready to rock.

    For those that have not seen, I thought it would be fun to tally the vote on people’s favorites. It’s a ten question survey. It could take between 5 minutes and years… To take the pressure off, I think we should re-vote right before leg 2.

    The survey will be open for a few days. If you cannot answer the last question, don’t sweat it. I hope you enjoy…

    Also, once you vote, you cannot vote again.

    Lotus is sounding pretty good right now – electronic jamming i guess. I like it.

    Sounds influenced by The Disco Biscuits

    snowbank- There was no tweez played in Charlotte. I imagined there was when I filled out your survey. It was a hot one. THE CLTWEEZ. A 25 minute Type 2 extravaganza out of the Drwoned jam that bled into the 46 Days. I heart imaginary tweezers.

  7. Born Under Punches Says:

    Nice Stream. Lotus is the shit. Great skiing music. Even better when baned, of course.

  8. BrandonKayda Says:

    Lotus is pretty damn good – first time hearing them.

  9. Born Under Punches Says:

    You should go to The Archive and check out some of their top rated stuff. Mr. Smalls Theater and Boulevard Cafe come to mind.

    Not the most improvisational stuff out there, but it hits that funky groovy spot.

  10. Born Under Punches Says:

    MMMMM. Hotness!

  11. BrandonKayda Says:

    Can do @BornUnderPunches, thanks for the recs.

    The bit of stuff I have heard from Disco Biscuits (2002.10.05 I) isn’t bad either – definitely one of those bands where you have to be there. Full dance fest I’m sure.

    That was a great set of music

  12. BrandonKayda Says:

    Funky jam right now

  13. BrandonKayda Says:

    Sounds kind of like Crosseyed right now – re-running Lotus’s set from the top. Funky stuff.

  14. BrandonKayda Says:

    Anybody up?

  15. BrandonKayda Says:

    Goodnight BB
