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.

  3. willowed Says:

    Not a bad jam to be sold on butter!!
    I played the youtube vid of i am The Walrus for my daughter (7) this a.m. She was floored. I think CK5 melted her retinas (sp?)

  4. joe Says:

    bb meetup at the foxy lady for halloween? what do stippres wear on halloween? maybe they dress conservatively.

  5. flarrdogg Says:

    that fuck you face video is excellent.

  6. butter Says:

    nice, we have the same age daughters willowed

    we are drawing pictures of amoebas, listening to kdf from Great Woods

  7. willowed Says:

    The Foxy Lady……Joe are you a R.I. kid? that place is legendary

  8. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    Sedona is bogus; Georgia Frontier PAv is closed got killed by f’n residential zoning

    Pine Mountian Amphitheatre in Flag would be cool.

    the new Dback /rockie Spring training Field would be sweet as it is now literally walking distance. certainly by european standards.

  9. willowed Says:

    That’s a solid version of KDF…spun that show at work yesterday!

  10. willowed Says:

    They grow up too fast Butter.

  11. joe Says:

    nope, I’m 100% masshole. in the bachelor party days we’d usually do the daily double of foxy lady>foxwoods. I’ve heard some good stories about some of the other gentlemen’s clubs in providence. sounds like montreal minus the french canadians.

  12. butter Says:

    Sedona sounded to heady

  13. butter Says:

    no doubt willowed, gotta cherish these years

  14. joe Says:

    and now I feel stupid for mentioning nudy bars when you guys are talking about your daughters. 5 minutes in the penalty box. back to work for me I guess.

  15. butter Says:

    off to go enjoy some sunshine with the fam

    have a good weekend, all

  16. butter Says:

    timing is everything joe

  17. joe Says:

    great woods actually sounded better on play back to me than I remember the show being. maybe cuz I was flying solo and my section was kind of lame and not dancing/grooving.

  18. butter Says:

    chris rock told us our one job as fathers of daughters, its all good

  19. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    Was wondering if/when someone would notice, willowed. Did that last night. My MS Paint skillz aren’t to be trifled with.

  20. butter Says:

    Great Woods was a kick ass way to spend a Tuesday

  21. Robear Says:

    sunscreen @ Butter. summer’s here!

  22. flarrdogg Says:

    this harpuafsb cat should tape every show…


  23. nonoyolker Says:

    Tweezer RR talk – still my favorite jam of v3.0. For me, it still has the most polished, unique, interesting new sound from the boys. Jam is perfect in my book

    Hope dudes have a good weekend. I’m still posted up in bed after a late one. I heart laxing.

    Go Nederlands! Have no stock in the match today. Kind of like being the valedictorian of summer school anway. Going to nap/watch like a champ

  24. phoammhead Says:

    Anybody got any idea what venue would be in Nashville?

  25. joe Says:

    is it too late for @silly to specialize in divorce cases. He can just go on here and tour to drum up all his business 🙂
