New Year’s Tickets Fly

Miami 2009 > 2010 (Wendy Rogell)

Yesterday, the last Phish Tickets-By-Mail emails of the year went out, notifying lottery winners of their booty and officially kicking off the final ticket-trading frenzy of 2010. With this weekend’s on-sales, just like that, the end of 2010 is in sight. It’s hard to believe that 2011 is on the horizon; Miami feels like only yesterday. As fall tour kicks off in a matter of days, the Phish scene is in full swing once again. With the band’s second Halloween and New Year’s Run of this era on the docket, we have seamlessly slid right back into a Phish-filled existence. With all of the “firsts” behind us, this upcoming season has the distinct feeling of a musical blast into the future. Ready to move mountains again, less than two years into their return, Phish has infused the entire community with unparalleled excitement, as the next 15 shows drip with limitless potential. With proficiency no longer a factor, this tour will be the first in which the band hits the ground running.

Then Phish will return to the only real venue for a New Year’s Eve blowout – Madison Square Garden in New York City. After not knowing how this era would unfold, things could not look more positive at this point in time. And for that we can be all be grateful. Austin on Friday and Colorado on Sunday…we’re almost there. The final quarter of the year looks like the best one yet!

Congrats to all lottery winners and good luck this weekend in the last Ticketmaster battles of 2010!

Here’s a scorching flashback to the early summer in Hartford, Connecticut.

Oregon Ducks

Another retro-nugget from a college town, this show – 19 years ago this week – comes from Oregon, a state Phish may or may not ever play again. If current trends are indicative, the Pacific Northwest, except The Gorge, isn’t even on the band’s radar screen. Here’s to some west coast Phish in 2011!

I: Chalk Dust Torture, Foam, Paul and Silas, Split Open and Melt, Bouncing Around the Room, The Landlady, Runaway Jim, It’s Ice, Eliza, Llama, Memories, Golgi Apparatus

II: Brother, Reba, Poor Heart, Cavern, Run Like an Antelope, I Didn’t Know, Sparkle, The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony > Suzy Greenberg, Fee, Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove

E: The Squirming Coil, Fire

Note: Many copies of this show that circulate include Alumni Blues and Lizards at the end of set I but this is filler from an unknown show.

    AW off the bus

    Breaking News!!!

    My extremely reliable sources (haven’t failed yet!) are telling me that this song will be the centerpiece and focal point of Phish’s Very Special Halloween Show. Definitely a departure from what they’ve done in the past, but should produce something epic nonetheless.

    @ T3

    That shit is just GROSS

  7. EL Duderino Says:

    AW is not getting off the bus if Kang sits in for a couple of tunes…

    @T3: Yeah, ptbm hooked me with great seats right beside Fishman one night and Page side the next

    Would’ve preferred the floor, but I suspect G likes a little elevation at shows

    “Iโ€™d find myself busting parentsโ€™ balls then asking if they wanted to puff.”

    ^^Ha ha. We’re friends with her dad. He’s always down for a nice heady session! But, I bet you could have guessed that.

  12. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    what sections? I’ll be in 109 (row b) for the first night and rocking the floor on the second night. I’m sure G will appreciate the view from the sections next to the stage. nice and close without the hassles of life on the floor.

    c’mon! the melody is beautiful and the message of the song is timeless! I can hear the vocal jam that spouts out of the jam spontaneously in my head already! ๐Ÿ˜†

    Mr C, the “MilesElectric” DVD you were pimping last week came in today, thanks for the recommendation

  15. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    this is the type of stuff I envision coming into play for CK5 if they do ever do the full Gamehendge throwdown. the visual combined with the music* would be epic. EPIC!

    *but not the music in that video. that’s a different party altogether.

  16. Chuck D Says:

    i finally got around to watching the miles davis live in copenhagen show from the 40th box set… and was a little disappointed, honestly. even tho its included in the bitches brew box, and even has a few bitches brew tracks… it sounds almost nothing like bitches brew stylings.

    that miles is a complicated cat.

  17. Chuck D Says:

    chef, let us know how it is. i’m interested.

  18. EL Duderino Says:

    Read the Miles Auto…

    One of the best reads in my life…

  19. EL Duderino Says:

    The one w/ Quiney Troupe as co-writer

  20. ChefBradford Says:

    Chuck, will do

    I’ll be out of town for a few days, then back to work, so it may be next week before I can get to it

    If I have time I’ll start it tonight

  21. voopa Says:

    Great read El Dude. Love that book!

  22. EL Duderino Says:

    @ voopa

    Could you please up a lossless version of TAB @ the TAB @ D e e m o n for me?

    Please… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. sumodie Says:

    @T3: 12/27: section 121 row F (Fishman)

    12/28: section 108 row B (Page side @ half court)

    You’ll have to rage the floor for me on night 2 8)

  24. Aquaman Says:


    That is straight up sweet!

    My favorites are the bleeding TV and the building that flips all it’s tiles.

  25. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    oooh, 108 row B is a perfect spot. right around midpoint of the venue with only one row of people in front of you. good score. something tells me I won’t be alone on the floor that night if you catch me… ๐Ÿ˜‰
