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.

    Hope these fake tour dates are indeed not fake. Those Broomfield dates happen to fall right on my fall break.

    ::prays to Phish gods::

  8. angryjoggerz Says:

    Friday night in Madison sure sounds fun to me. The drive to Columbus from Madison sure does not.

  9. Leo Weaver Says:

    Raleigh show was hot…tons of highlights. And everything was very well played. Don’t sleep on it fellas!

  10. Mr.Palmer Says:

    8/2/09- Waves is so good. Need this back in rotation .

    Mr. C will get one at the Greek…..

    “Friday night in Madison sure sounds fun to me. The drive to Columbus from Madison sure does not.”aj

    9 hours the night after a show= SUPER BEAT

  12. Leo Weaver Says:

    MPP FEFY was indeed nicely placed. Felt similar to the FEFY out of Ghost in Asheville last year.

  13. phoammhead Says:

    I agree @Leo – RAL was smokin’ – that Fluffhead is on point and I was so happy to get it when it went down!

  14. angryjoggerz Says:

    Now, a Friday in Madison and Sat/Sun at UIC Pav in Chicago would be most welcomed.

  15. Wharblgarbl Says:

    @ Palmer

    1st Bank Center

    I think Furthur played there recently

  16. angryjoggerz Says:

    The 10/2/99 Piper made me a believer, baptised.

  17. c0wfunk Says:

    mpp98 piper was the one to convince me for good.

  18. angryjoggerz Says:

    Loving this ATL piper too, nice things happening. Another one I would love to get at the Greek. So many on the list. To whom do I fax it?

  19. c0wfunk Says:

    letter to santa claus should do the trick I think.

  20. Robear Says:

    palmer, we got spoiled on all the open jamming last year, from RR > Gorge. some great stuff. will jam that ‘boogie on’ soon. been awhile.

    Light>Maze, Ghost from Chi last night again

    one of the true highlights from tour, especially Maze, pure unadulterated heat.

    Maze contains some of the most passionate playing of all tour to these ears

  22. willowed Says:

    I send my fax to the big man….Jesus Christ. I don’t think he gets my faxes. Must be out of paper!

  23. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    which makes all the more puzzling that that maze was the only one during leg 1.

    try calling this number and leaving a message instead:
    Make sure you listen to the recording first though.

  24. phoammhead Says:

    “Leo Esquandolas!” in 6/22 Antelope – anyone know the significance of this? “. . . anyone have any spike . . . man.”

  25. phoammhead Says:

    Maze at The Greek – yes!!!
