An Invite By Mike

"The Mossery" Invite

Ever the iconoclast, Mike Gordon has announced an out-of-the-ordinary mid-tour event coming up next Monday, October 18, in New York City. While Phish takes two days off between Charleston and Augusta, Mike will celebrate the release of his new album, Moss, with a participatory party in New York. Mike won’t be playing a usual show, but hosting a free event asking audience members to join him on stage jam for jam sessions with intruments to be provided. If you are driving from South Carolina to Maine, this might be the perfect pit stop, or if you’re in New York, head down to Bleeker Street and share this special night with Mike. Details from his website are below:
You’re invited to “The Mossery,” a free-form musical event on the eve of the release of Mike Gordon’s new studio album, Moss. The event will take place at a fully transformed Kenny’s Castaway on Monday, October 18th in New York City. There’s no cost to get in and you can come, explore and leave as you please. Guests will have the chance to pick up Mike’s new album which hits stores on Tuesday.
Attendees will have the opportunity to play along, with Mike on bass. We supply the instruments and mikes and you show up. We can’t guarantee that everyone will get to (it’s first come, first served), but we’ll rotate as many willing participants through as possible, because a rolling stone gathers no moss.
The first half of the event will start at 7:30pm and continue through 9:00pm, at which point we’ll rotate out all folks, making room for the next flock of people. The second half of the event, with all new participants, will begin at 9:30pm and continue through 11:00pm.

    I wonder how many people they can take at a time, and when the line will start?

  4. (looks too much like)Dave Says:

    Man, that’s really fucking cool. I can’t think of too many rock stars who would do this kind of thing for his fans. Mike, once again, shows me why he’s my favorite phisie.

  5. plord Says:

    That would be so impossibly awesome.

    But, I’ll take the under at 15 minutes before some loser gets up there and tries to play Stash or something.

  6. Corey Says:

    Dang, I’ll be too beat driving back from KY…and my own gig on Sunday.
    Looks like fun though. I smell a PHiSH theatre tour 2011…Somerville Theatre, The Little Theatre, Derby Dinner Playhouse…

  7. Corey Says:

    Boy, if all rock bands took the approach that PHiSH seems to, and certainly their individual members seem to…
    The rock music world would be a very different animal.

    PHiSH is gonna be taught in school just like the GD.

  8. Corey Says:

    Have fun southern folk. Have a nice 15 hour drive to Lex. KY tomorrow.
    I’ll be thinking of you Leo, and co. down south. The shows will be a blast.

    The only thing that would make this event more dope is free ice cream. He starts handing out some free cones and I’m driving to Manhattan.

  11. voopa Says:

    So wish I could be there!

  12. yematt Says:

    wow that would be awesome/weird to play with mike in a live setting!

    alright, i’m taking off here in a few minutes for charleston. my day has only just begun… phish tonight!

  15. Selector J Says:

    yematt… living the dream!
    I’d be way too self-conscious to jump on that stage with anything more than a maraca… or maybe an electrolux. (Rich made that look pretty doable.)

  16. pc boy Says:

    well bro , rock banders the great one …they are full of energy and power and also they rock everybody……

  17. Ultrasound Technician Says:

    I would like to wish best of luck for this event .

  18. ThePigSong Says:

    Really curious to see how they pull this off. I guess I’m ultra nerdy, but Im mostly curious on the logistics. How are they going to keep any hack from getting up to jam? Or is that the point?

  19. ThePigSong Says:

    46 degrees on the N Corolina coast this morning, here’s to it warming up for you beach house’rs.

  20. EL Duderino Says:


    Up already!!!!

    13.5 hours and counting

  21. Gavinsdad Says:

    Mike is the man. Seriously. He honestly gets IT.

  22. Gavinsdad Says:

    Kennys is one of those classic old school bars where every band gets their first gig or two. Pretty small place. Can’t see more than 250 ppl fitting in there.

  23. Leo Weaver Says:

    G’morning guys! Mostly packed up, just gotta get the car loaded and hit the road in a couple of hours. The weekend has begun! Got an email from Tela’sMuff a couple of hours ago…rather than stopping to sleep in Asheville on the way down, he and his SLF kept going and rolled into town this morning. Watching the sun rise on IoP…waiting on us to get there. Hope they can catch some zzz’s while waiting.

    @Corey and all…we’ll send you some of the good vibes from the inside.

  24. willowed Says:

    Well, You down south boys. Have fun today. Take care of each other and enjoy.

    Leo and El Dude…rip that fucker up!

    Have a blast guys

  25. Mr.Palmer Says:

    I’m there! Bringing my triangle. Lets do this.
