"Fee" - 8.12.10 (M. Stein)

After a sloppy opening frame, Phish came back with one of their more creatively constructed sets of tour. “Drowned” brought the band into a new-school rhythmic-ambient jam, while they connected  “Jibboo > Gin” with a seamless segue. Trey left the whale behind on this second set “Bathtub Gin” using his Ocedoc to carve melodies into the summer night. After a quality mid-set interlude, Phish capped the evening by deconstructing “Split” into “Dog-Faced Boy,” and an impressive “Hood” which passes through an unorthodox segment of darkness on  the way to the top. All-in-all, this show is flying under the radar due to larger explosions at The Greek and Alpine Valley.

I: Runaway Jim, Punch You In the Eye, Roggae, Cars Trucks Buses, Sample in a Jar, NICU, Horn, Sugar Shack, Wolfman’s Brother, Time Turns Elastic

    KWL: Too many variables…can not compute…must get outside and enjoy this beatuiful day!

  2. AintNoTele Says:

    Duder: I’m gonna need some more blowups!

    Actually, I’m trying to get my apt clubhouse for sat preshow which is a huge area with pool/hot tub, pool tables, shuffleboard, TV’s, huge kitchen and all that jazz. Its a big 2 story deal that you can get for whatever weekend and its just a few exits away from the venue on daniel island

  3. El Duderino Says:

    Sounds nice!

    We need Luther T. Justice to get down there

  4. Mitch Says:

    morning all. well i guess its afternoon here now.

    can we get a repost of harry’s light drive. i posted that i got on the wrong train cause of that light jam and someone mentioned someone else’s drive. guess thats what they meant.

    i think phish needs to play more shows at telly and less at the greek. then we wont have to stress those lines at all. telly was like walking into a festival.

  5. Mitch Says:

    do yourself a favor. take two mins to go to this site. watch the video full screen and then exit and stare at the frog in the poster. now i get the hype behind why people like that poster. the imagery didnt do much for me but the technique to make it move it on point.


  6. Mr.Miner Says:

    Migrant workers made off much better than phish kidz. Trust me

  8. Mr.Miner Says:

    but the injustice lies in the broader capitalist economy and the institutional rules that govern it (including immigration rules)–not with paying people to stand in line

    ^^obviously. But we are dealing with the reality of the situation here.

    I see nothing non-dignified in waiting in line…would it be different if they were hired to haul bricks?

  9. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    I like the reasoned and complex discussion here. From @zzyzx’s, “It’s evil classicism,” to @Miner’s “It’s all good, you’re helping someone out who needs it,” to @KWL’s nuanced and insightful commentary, and even to @el dude’s, “quit cutting in my line, brah, I’ve been here all day.”

    It is indeed a complex and nuanced issue. Yes, the system is unbalanced toward us white Americans. Will paying or not paying a migrant worker to stand in line for you change that in any way? No. But we care about doing the right thing, and certainly there is something about this situation which is a little unseemly. I certainly wouldn’t do it, but wouldn’t judge very harshly on someone that did.

    Would it be different if said line-waiter was one of the poor white street urchins that line Telegraph all day begging change?

    As far as the immigrant law issue, that’s difficult too. My job relies heavily on migrant labor, and I can tell you for sure, they are not taking jobs from whites who would want them. I can also say that one of our suppliers has a highly skilled migrant crew, and they were just busted by immigration for their illegal workers. These workers had applications for green cards in for years, sometimes as many as fifteen years, and had not received them. Many, many immigrant workers would be legal if they were allowed.

    In closing, though, all I can say is I hope zzyzx’s cape wasn’t made by exploited Chinese workers in sweat shops, or else his whole viewpoint is negated.

    Peace out. Let’s talk about music.

  10. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    on point mitch.

    the festival spirit was alive in telluride because erverybody had to travel to get there. some more than others.

    ^ lolololol

    @aw – I agree Greek 2 Set 2 is the set of the year

  12. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    Oh, and, to echo @KWL: Good Morning.

  13. Mr.Miner Says:

    oh . telly yem kills

  14. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    Though I do hope they return to Indio a la festival stylee.

    Springtime on the desert floor is magical. Check it out, for real.

  15. Frycanthropist Says:

    so how crucial do you think it is to put in PTBM for Charleston?

  16. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    Props to Mrs. Tzara’s for a Sunday morning discussion to work through some of these points. A rich debate, when discussed rationally as we do here. And one with no black and white answer.

    Still, I would be a little put out if I waited all day in line, and some Trustafarian waltzes up at 4pm to get his place at the front of line. So I avoided that issue by coming when I wanted to and relegating myself to the spacious and precipitous lawn, up in Robear’s ‘hood.

  17. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    Yes, please, on Indio! That was a great experience all-around.

  18. Robear Says:

    No love or sympathy for the hippies that waited in line @ the Mock Show?

    The dude posted an ad on Craigslist: “$250 to be first in line, $100 for spot 2-5”

    Some heads in town for the shows jumped on it. Were in line first. Did they take a potential job from a migrant worker?

  19. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    Wait a second, @miner. Greek 2 over Greek 3? Though I admit, I haven’t listened to Greek3 since the shows, to better preserve the intensity of the experience I had. Probably soon though.

  20. KWL Says:

    think there will be any easy tix on lot this fall?

    wasn’t portsmouth va a tiny venue (6k?) but tix were everywhere?

    maybe it was such a ‘hard ticket’ that people didn’t bother to go, making tix available

    (or maybe b/c it was tuesday?)

  21. phoammhead Says:


    N Charleston = Only southern showz of tour – at least so far and it’s all GA – I personally like my ticket in hand before I go to showz – I’m not looking to get a slightly cheaper or even $20 ticket on lot – i think N Charleston on Fri and Sat nights sells out, which if they do – tickets just get more expensive. I’m putting in for the showz I’m planning on going to – N Charleston and Atlantic City.

  22. Robear Says:

    Tzara’s, that was a typo.

    He meant Greek 3, set II.

    I vote her as the show of the year, b’cuz the first set smokes, to my ears.

  23. Frycanthropist Says:

    yeh but 270 extra bucks is a lot of extra money to come up with between now and 9/10

  24. Frycanthropist Says:

    i prefer greek II. Obv light is killer from night 3, but as a whole greek 2 just works for me big time.

  25. Robear Says:

    lots of pink balloons all over the northeast for Fall Tour. I think the tickets will be there in spades, except for the Halloween run.
