Weekend Nuggets: SPAC 2010


With just under two weeks before Phish kicks off a three-day party in the Bay Area, SPAC’s finale is the last show remaining from Leg I’s download series. Highlighted by a strong first set and a sublime sequence of “Drowned > Swept Away > Steep,” Phish concluded their Northeastern with a relatively tame, song-based outing.

    That’s pretty cool El Dude! If you’re playing music files does it go through your tv into the stereo or is there a direct connect to your stereo? Is there some cool visualization feature on the TV if you’re playing music? We really need to just bag cable tv and have something like this I think.

    Hey, folks. happy Sunday. Dropped out of the convo due to familial issues. Spent a lot of yesterday trying to make peace.

    In honor of what I’ve been reading here, started spinnin 8-7-09 highlights.

  5. El Duderino Says:

    The stereo connect is with an hdmi cable.

    There is a network connection via wireless router too.

    Automatic firmware updates.

    There is a new Western Digital HD Media Player Live Plus that does the instant Net-Flix.

    The one I have does not have the “Plus”

    Watching Vegas 96 DVD with the dancing elvis’s – what the hell is wrong with these guys 🙂

  7. kayatosh Says:

    I just borderline ruined this delicious coffee with almond milk. blech. no cow milk today.

  8. Robear Says:

    kaya, was at a place by my folks getting coffee. they had the labels backwards and had some heinous hazelnut flavored coffee in the ‘dark roast’ pot.

    had to turn around on the highway and go back.

  9. kayatosh Says:

    Nice one, @robear. Don’t settle for hzlnut.

  10. kayatosh Says:

    here, the almond flav. has overwhelmed what was quality coffee.

  11. BTB Says:

    From the Phish.net

    The Mansfield Wicked Local reports the saga of Barton Gray, a 31 year old alleged nitrous oxide dealer from Connecticut who, after the Phish show, spent two days in the storm drains eluding police. Unbelievable story. Nitrous dealers…I’m sure it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Keep it classy, phans!

    ^ Almost justice

  12. KWL Says:

    @gavins, are you staying in NY post show on night 2 & then driving back to jerZ the 19th? if so, looking for a gas rider?

  13. kayatosh Says:

    8-7-09 sneakin sally — $$$. Tasters’ Choice Phish 3.0

    bane time, as i prepare for Moma and Light.

  14. flarrdogg Says:

    8/7/09 Gin requires a 4th dollar sign. Maybe a fifth.

    Anyone have the scoop on why Mickey and Bill aren’t playing in Furthur. There is a pretty good interview with fake jerry conducted by Blair Jackson on dead net, but they don’t really touch on the subject. Just curious.


  15. Gavinsdad Says:

    Dunno Flarr…but what’s curious to me is that at the end of the week all the former GD members, including Donna will be playing in some form or fashion at GOTV. I’ve been in the backstage area at Vibes 08 and there are these little huts with couches etc set up. Can’t see how these guys won’t run into one another over the course of the weekend. I know this doesn’t answer yr question but I’ve been quietly speculating to myself that there might be a barnburner of a jam this weekend…Jackie Greene is up there too. Dunno about kimock or Larry campbell. Maybe nothing will happen

    @kwl: will def leave manhattan on that Thurs am for Philly heading South on the Nj tpke. Gonna try for a half day workday that day. If you need a newark or Philly airport drop I’m your guy.

  16. Robear Says:

    g’daddy, u got mail.

    ahhhh, Jones Beach…. if i could, i would

  17. KWL Says:

    awesome GD, i have to get to phila after JB for a wedding that weekend, so let’s keep in touch on that too

  18. KWL Says:

    what was i so worried for last night? blackboard hookin it up, making shows possible for poor kidz, as if there was any doubt BBers would come to my rescue

  19. Robear Says:

    any bb’ers heading to the greek solo, still needing a place to stay?

  20. Robear Says:


    that’s my new ‘show plan’. book flight, tell matty, find a bb’er to ride and stay with down the road.

  21. kayatosh Says:

    @KWL and @gdiddy — if you guys are doing a philly rendezvous, let me know. I’d be down for a meet up.

  22. kayatosh Says:

    I see now. looks like KWL will be hopping on a plane, so unlikely meet up possibilities post JB. Another time.

  23. kayatosh Says:

    8-7-09 HarryHood — $$$.

    I liked the 8/7 Light and fluffhead, too — $$.

  24. Gavinsdad Says:

    @kwl: just so you have it in your backpocket ahead of time, you are more than welcome to stay in our lovely basement suite if you need to. Recent BB guests include Mitch, garretc, and Neemor’s essence.

  25. Andrew Says:

    Take it for what it is, but the rumor floating through Asheville is a multi-night run being planned for the fall downtown.

    Last summer was the epitome of a town embracing the band, absolutely perfect afternoon strolling around and a kick-ass show taboot!

    This would be very welcomed in my neck of the woods.
