Happy Holidays!

10.31.10 (Graham Lucas)

I’ll be taking some time off between now and Worcester. I’ll likely post some thoughts at some point, but probably not for a few of days. Happy Holidays to all!

In the meantime, enjoy these Worcester gems that just missed December!

    Happy happy joy joy,
    time for presents, time for cheer
    but best of all, the Phish is near

    Phish was in my dreams last night. My brother and I were trying like hell to make our way into a show at Nassau Coliseum but there were so many obstacles and distractions. We finally made it inside and to our seats as a cloud of smoke engulfed the stage when the lights went down. Just as the music was about to start I woke up. To be continued very soon….

  5. phoammhead Says:

    i’m catching up on the jams miner posted over the past couple of weeks – awesome collection to create anticipation and excitement – love it! 🙂

    just did the 12/31/95 weekapaug – a rager!

  6. lastwaltzer Says:


    I just jammed that last night, the GOODS.

    But that really can be said for that entire show.

  7. phoammhead Says:


    i’ll have to download that entire show and give a spin, then – thanks for rec!

    damn, i’m getting excited for this new years run – can’t wait!!!

    you making any shows, lw?

    Phoamm – coming from a guy on this board that is immensely “underlistened” you must stop everything you are doing and listen to 12/31/95 on repeat. It’s part of the holy trinity of msg shows…the father I’ve called it in the past. (the son is 12/30/97 and the holy ghost is 12/29/97)

  9. lastwaltzer Says:

    HOLY SHIT PHOAM! Drop everything 12/31/95’s gotta be in the top five. What a freaking show. Enjoy it! Grab the official release the sound is perfect.

    I’ll be there for 31st, so fucking pumped! I leave for philly tomorrow, wish I could hit more then just the one but what can you do. At least I’ve got a week off of work with freinds and family. Thinking of driving to Maryland to hike this mountain: http://www.nps.gov/cato/index.htm

  10. lastwaltzer Says:


    everytime I think I’m catching up on all the “must hear shows” someone throws something at me……….12/29/97??!?!? must look into it, that and the 98 run.

  11. phoammhead Says:

    nice @gdad and lw – you guys are in sync!

    yes, i will download 12/31/95 and spin it this evening with BEK – we’re going to have a romantic xmas eve together!

    she’s working and i’m going to set the stage – make soup, light candles later, etc!

  12. phoammhead Says:


    sounds really good . . . week off work with family, friends . . . maybe a mountain hike, fresh air and a new years eve phish show, taboot – phresh phish – awesome!

  13. lastwaltzer Says:


    Word, I haven’t had this much time off in two years and its probably the longest I’ll have been around my family and freinds in three or four years.

    And to cap it off at MSG with two of my best childhood friends, love of my life and 20,000 of my closet friends = $$$

  14. Gavinsdad Says:

    LW – I’m sure that most on here would put those two msg nye run 97 shows a hair ahead of the 98s. And they are both livephish releases.

    Are you in Philly proper when you come out here or a burb. If youre not hitting Woosta and wanna catch a pint or a puff at my Philly hideout drop me an email. Takes me 15 mins to get into town.

  15. lastwaltzer Says:

    Your doing the whole run right?

  16. lastwaltzer Says:


    I’ll be in Newtown (bucks co.) I used to live in the northeast. I’ll hit you up if were heading downtown, I’m sure we will at some point.

    Do you know anywhere to see some jazz? I used to hit Orbitlies but I hear they changed hands and things aren’t the same.

  17. phoammhead Says:

    i’m makin’ only msg . . . i said only! 😉

    Morning BB

    Coffee and some 12/6/97 Tweezer this morning. Might help the roommate do his last minute xmas shopping in a couple hours (for lack of anything better to do). Thinking I might be crazy.


    Sounds like a great night with BEK. That LP has great, great sound as previously stated. Turn it up to 11 and enjoy.

    We are hosting my family for Chrimbo Eve today, and my daughter has her first cold, super fun. Thank goodness I got the ham catered in from whole foods (I have no idea how to cook meat). Wish us luck, I am tired already. 12 people in our tiny townhouse is, well, snug.

  21. lastwaltzer Says:


    you live in an apartment right? Shit must be tight, good luck with that 😉

    merry christmas!

  23. angryjoggerz Says:

    We are in a townhouse, so at least we can spread people around to different floors. Kitchen, dining area and living room are all sort of one big space. Snug, but hopefully cozy. Gonna make some Glogg now.
