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.

    Just got back from seeing Roger Waters The Wall -AMAZING show (so not like our VT boys of course)

    Most incredible production design I’ve ever seen for a show -wouldn’t want every performance I see to be so heavy on the design side, but there’s only one Wall

    Time to crawl thru the comments about that other show down south tonight…hope it was good for those in attendance

  4. sumodie Says:

    28 songs tonight…..hhmmmm…?

  5. BrandonKayda Says:

    Damn I just realized that @Sumo, they played a ton of songs tonight. Hopefully the Gin/Stash/Disease were all good

  6. sumodie Says:

    @bk: well, not saying quality & song # are related, though I’ll admit I’m curious to see the song timings from livephish

    either way I’ll reserve judgment till I hear from those at the show and on replay -the tapers should have a faster turn around than for Broom3

  7. Robear Says:

    aren’t there a bunch of cats that should be updating us from the porch of their beach house?

  8. jdub Says:

    Just checking in, hope the south got the heat. I don’t think setlists are going to tell much of a story this fall.

    Speaking of which, time to find out e
    what was played tonight.

  9. Jtran Says:

    The setlist looks so atypical on

    4 lines long each set

  10. mr. murph Says:

    Holy.cow. what a show. I am at a loss for words

  11. Jtran Says:

    Nice murph!

    Glad you liked it. Highlights?

  12. m00nshake Says:

    Some of the songs could have been stretched out lngpr

  13. sumodie Says:

    They’re probably too busy skinny dipping in the ocean

    Well…maybe the weather is not that good 8)

  14. m00nshake Says:

    Some of the songs could have been stretched longer, for example I would have preferred a longer DWD>Twist without the Caspian and a longer Tube but overall the show was very long tooI was expecting Suzy to be the closer but than they brought out Slave.I was so tired from dancing so long.Can’t wait or tomorrow night.I

  15. angryjoggerz Says:

    Good show, had some real highs. Venue felt very small for me. I was behind the stage, empty back there, had tons of space, and got kinda spacey. Loved me some roses and MFM, have been wanting both for a while. Bring on tomorrow!

  16. angryjoggerz Says:

    damn, looking back at that setlist, they played a ton of songs. no wonder i am so spent.

  17. sumodie Says:

    @jdub: you still hittin the augusta show? I cannot wait to get inside that place on Tuesday

    I suppose you’re still aglow from the Brooms 8)

  18. ChefBradford Says:

    Someone said 28 songs this show. Also heard the first set had many, many flubs (mostly Trey?)

    still, interested in hearing the overall opinions

    also interested in seeing some balls-out, truly open jamming

  19. m00nshake Says:

    Sorry my typing is crazy but I’m too tired to Swype effectively

  20. Hoedown Says:

  21. Lycanthropist Says:

  22. m00nshake Says:

    There were flubs in the first set but I didn’t notice anything major.

  23. m00nshake Says:
