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.

    “Is it of note that Trey wasn’t wearing a button down again on (at least) night 3?”

    I think Trey should go full rock star and go sans shirt. Actually, no I don’t.

  14. Nagarjuna Says:

    I definitely need video of the awkwardness/cosmic beauty/hilarity that I suspect will take place on stage between mike and phans. I would be so stoked for folks if they get up there jam for realz. Serious phun.

    Good morning! Beautiful day in the Hoosier state and I am jealous of all the folks in the Palmetto state. I have posted my review of the new sennheuser source from 10-12, if you already have the gotfob neuman source, then there is really no need to get the sennheuser source, it is tinny.

  17. BeantownBoy Says:

    Mornin, BB!

    Nursing a nice hangover this morning after last night’s Avett Bros. concert. When will I learn that I can’t mix whiskey and beer like I used to.

    To the southern crew, I envy you and the fun that you will have this weekend.

    Luckily it is now one week until Providence.

  18. guitarpicker420! Says:

    Yeah whiskey and beer is a terrible mixer, and I’m a boilermaker! I much prefer whiskey on the rocks, or as with last night, 7+7.

  19. Lumpyhead Says:

    Boarding the plane now. Dude and everyone, I was unable to get supplies so good luck finding; should be no prob.

  20. AintNoTele Says:
