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.

    ^my mom and my sister

    My poor mother probably never even comes close to hitting and my sister bought me 2 Manchesters last month when she thought she was getting AC3s


  3. BeantownBoy Says:

    Type III,

    Just wanted to offer my congrats for hitting it big in the lottery.
    It made me smile when I read your post.

    Because it looks like the cosmos looked kindly on you choosing being with your family rather than with us hooligans in AC. So they wanted to make sure that you were able to get down at the hometown shows.

  4. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    apparently, the power of grilled cheese doesn’t work on sheriff’s deputies. well, that and the fact that she was drunk.

  5. ThePigSong Says:

    On a happy not I ordered a replacement pair of these yesterday. Should arrive just in time for NEW PHISH!

  6. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    thanks! I’ve done okay the past couple of lotteries. maybe not hitting on everything but getting the quality seats I seek (like 12th row for Hartford I). that two night woosta run should be a blast. the return to a classic phish venue and only a short drive from home taboot!

    sounds like your uh………………….fucked

    I thought you were going with three other people, one of them has to be proficient in the ways of the web, no?

  8. ThePigSong Says:

    yeah my Wife and Buddy that is coming along are both working Saturday.

    I’m sure I will recruit a few buddies before the week is over – I really didn’t think I would go 0/7 so I wasn’t thinking to much about it until yesterday.

    Busy week in the NFL. Trades, people being cut, Coaches being fired. Can’t be complacent. I hope the Randy Moss move doesn’t affect my boy Welker.

    Interesting move, no doubt.

    @ Willowed


    That would be sick. Granted, I’m a ‘Skins fan by birth, but I’ll admit that when I want to watch some real football (and not bang my head against the wall for a few hours) I’ll watch the Pats.

  24. willowed Says:

    Mark It
    Vincent Jackson will be a Patriot!!

  25. Guyute711 Says:

    willowed, I can tell you if you are getting VJ it’s not going to be this year.
