Phish Confirmed At Watkins Glen?

A local blog from New York State, Bands That Jam, is claiming that Watkins Glen is official, contracts have been signed, and that the festival will be an 8-set, Phish-only affair from June 30-July 3rd! Let’s hope this report is correct. I’m not doubting anyone’s journalistic integrity, but one can’t believe anything until it’s on Phish.com.

    The Greek shows in July ’01 were nice. I thought, “If Trey can keep this band together for a year or so, they’ll be hot!” And they were.

    Listening to 2003/06/13 Neil Young and Crazy Horse at Bonnaroo – real jam-heavy set. 2 songs over 20mins and Down By The River is like 18mins.

    Some of this is reminiscent of some of The Velvet Underground’s live jamming, with all the feedback and distortion and such.

    What needs to be said is that the Divided Sky from MSG 1.1.11 was damn near note perfect and as a result: stunning.

    The Sextet
    Lineup

    * Trey Anastasio – guitar
    * Dave Grippo – Alto Saxophone
    * Jen Hartswick – trumpet, tuba, vocals
    * Russ Lawton – drums
    * Tony Markellis – bass
    * Andy Moroz – Trombone

    When Phish took a hiatus at the end of 2000, Trey soon found himself writing new songs. Eager to hit the road to debut some of the material, a brief tour was spontaneously planned for February and Trey took the ambitious step of adding three horns to the band – Dave Grippo (saxophone, of Giant Country Horn fame), Jen Hartswick (trumpet) and Andy Moroz (trombone) – all local Vermonters. With the new tour came a number of new originals, including “Push on ’Til the Day”, “At the Gazebo”, “Waves “(now known as “Ray Dawn Balloon”), “Happiness in my Pants” (to which Trey later added words to become “Birthday Boys” on Oysterhead’s The Grand Pecking Order), and “Burlap Sack and Pumps.”

    * Jen Hartswick – trumpet, tuba, vocals
    * Russ Lawton – drums
    * Tony Markellis – bass
    * Andy Moroz – Trombone
    * Ray Paczkowski – keyboards
    * Russell Remington – tenor saxophone, flute

    In the summer of 2001, following the successful theatre tour in the spring, Trey hit the road for his first extended nation-wide solo tour with the quintet plus Ray Paczkowski on keys and Russell Remington on tenor sax and flute. In addition to premiering new songs like “Plasma”, arrangements of songs such as “Last Tube” were changed to reflect the expanded lineup. The septet played amphitheatres across the country, welcoming a handful of guests along the way including Mike Gordon, John Medeski and Carl “Gears” Gerhart who joined the horn section to mark the first appearance of the Giant Country Horns in ten years.

    Duh.
    I knew after MSG 1.1.11 that Round Room had been written for that space.

    Just now it dawned on me that the line “The outskirts of town, to a Garden that’s round” probably had something to do with that.
