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.

    @Mr P
    Thanks for the shoutout

    Re: last night’s convo:
    Relistened to my reunion show today. Haven’t spun that one in a while because it always felt kind of down to me and I remember how I felt that night. There are just other shows that are more fun to hear.

    But on replay now its clear that it was just us. I completely forgot that we got mike’s>hydrogen>weekapaug. Don’t remember it at all. Had to check the date to make sure it was really our show.

    The short lesson is this (in best south park voice), “drugs are bad. Mmmkayyy.”

    I am in no way bashing 2009. More a reflection on how I’m hardwired to listen to pH
