Ten Random Rumors

Phish won’t likely announce their summer schedule until Trey finishes touring in March. Perhaps that estimate is off by a little, but it doesn’t seem that any word is coming imminently. During the off-season, I only report legitimate rumors from reliable sources. But today, just for the fun of discussion, I figured I’d throw out some of the random buzz that I’ve heard from various sources that are not my connects. Take them with a grain of salt, folks, this is more of a fun than predictive Thursday exercise.

1. Hampton for Memorial Day weekend is not happening.

2. The July 1-3 festival at Watkins Glen will end a nationwide tour that skips the Northeast.

3. Phish will play in Florida in June, specifically, West Palm Beach.

4. Phish will return to Alpharetta for multiple nights.

5. The end of tour will go Alpine > Deer Creek > Star Lake > Watkins Glen.

6. Hampton for Memorial Day weekend is happening.

7. Red Rocks – June 17 and 18

8. Phish will hit the west coast again, but to what extent is the real question. All I’ve heard is Shoreline.

9. The Gorge with DMB on Labor Day weekend. Say it ain’t so!

10. Northeast Leg II? No Leg II?


Jam of the Day:

Rock and Roll > Theme > Dog Log” 9.17.00 II

Though the latter two thirds of Merriweather’s set opening combo made it to an archives show, for some reason the best part of the trio was left out. Check out the seamless segment in full right here.

    True El Dude, i was just saying the same thing to a buddy. Guy is no ego. First thing he did was give Reggie a hug. Classy move from a stand up guy

  2. EL Duderino Says:

    The WSP panic sbd’s will be up by morning on the ‘noid I’m sure.

    Ton up there now FWIW

  3. EL Duderino Says:

    771gigs DL’ed thus far 🙂

  4. nonoyolker Says:

    @ El Dude – was agreeing about Ray Ray. Disagree completely about Ainge. Guy put together a championship squad. Guy is a maestro.

    Palmer – I grew up in CT. Was a big UCONN fan and remember Ray’s days there fondly. They had a killer squad.

  5. DukeOfLizards Says:


    For sure. The comparison I always draw with supremely talented yet head-down guys like that is to Fishman.

    Ray Allen shoots basketballs

    Fishman plays drums

    That’s it.

  6. EL Duderino Says:

    When GM’s are throwing towels during opposing player’s foul shots when in sightline I just think that way too involved. GM’s shouldn’t really be seen during games and especially not doing that kinda behavior

  7. Aquaman Says:

    OK, back for one sec…..

    I’ll Clarify. Good versions of the song sound like Mr. Soul. Bad versions of Mr. Soul end up sound like a botched Satisfaction by the Stones. The bass line is similar.


  8. Mr. Palmer Says:

    As much as i dislike Uconn men’s hoops, i always liked Allen. Just played. No trash talk and no showboating, just drained J’s .

    Reggie Miller was a douche!

  9. EL Duderino Says:

    Phish has done some My Soul stinkers in the past

  10. Aquaman Says:

    Agreed El Dude.

    I think bands feel the need to swing Mr. Soul. They try to put their stank up on it if you know what I mean?

    The original is a fast tune and it does well with some pep behind it.


    P.S. Nice what’s this Back Porch or something? Like, this tune.

  11. Aquaman Says:

    I “hear” Jimmy in this tune. But in my head I HEAR Mikey. He always slayed this.

  12. Mr. Palmer Says:

    holden oversoul

  13. garretc Says:


    Yes, cause Fishman keeps his head down and works, he NEVER draws attention to himself.

    What a low key guy that Fishman… You’d hardly even know he existed

  14. Mike in Austin Says:

    I wish they did Big Leg Emma instead.

  15. Mike in Austin Says:

    Go Gophers. That is all.

  16. nonoyolker Says:

    Great comparison Duke.

    Ray always seemed like someone on a mission to get the job done, no nonsense, no ego. Him breaking the record was the most emotion i’ve ever seen him display.

    Reggie always seemed like a herb.

  17. AintNoTele Says:

    holden slaying. I like jojo’s wah+clav combo, that can get you boogying

  18. garretc Says:

    Ahhh, Island Twist.

    Might even be my most listened to jam. Not intentionally I don’t think, mostly just cause of the glorious video, probably…

  19. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Ahahaha I didn’t necessarily mean low-key, just not rock-star-y, ya know? My favorite image of Fish is from the Round Roomd DVD when he’s backing his Subaru Outback full of beat-up cymbals into the Barn driveway.

  20. joe Says:

    pretty sure they’d both steal your girlfriend/wife when you’re not looking too.

  21. joe Says:

    I love you, but Jesus (shuttlesworth) loves you the best. and I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight.

    have a good one.

  22. garretc Says:

    The bass line Mike finds at ~9:50 in the Island Twist slays me every time. It belongs in a museum somewhere…

    A museum of awesome things

  23. voopa Says:

    “A museum of awesome things”

    I want to go there!

  24. phoammhead Says:

    i gotta say this panic stream is money – sounds great – no flubs here whatsoever

  25. garretc Says:


    Right? Who wouldn’t?

    I’m willing to give up my rights to the proceeds if someone takes the idea and follows through on it. Well… I’ll give up 95% of my rights to the proceeds…
