3.5.2011 TAB @ The Fox, Oakland, CA: Butter

2.25.11 (M.Stein)

…The night seemed to begin at “Heavy Things”;  as simultaneously – the rest of TAB took the stage –  and people began to care about what was going on, onstage. Liquid Time is a showcase tune in this setting and the  horns help color the musical pallete. Trey currently has the young Natalie “Chainsaw” Cressman on trombone, TAB staple; Jennifer Hartswick on trumpet, and Russell Remmington on saxophone and flute. While this is not “The Tower of Power” horns section, they help develop the sound of this band, playing mostly charted out lines…Read On Here!


3.1.2011 TAB @ The Ogden, Denver, CO: Mike San Clements

2.25.11 (M.Stein)

…Trey came out around 8:30, did his classic nod and wave, picked up his guitar and quickly launched into Farmhouse. I’d read a lot of complaints about people being loud during the acoustic sets, but the crowd at the Ogden hushed immediately and stayed quiet and sang through all the right parts. It was actually quite impressive, particularly during Theme and Backwards Down the Number Line where they instinctively filled in for the missing band members.  Trey enjoyed it too, and it felt like a true collaboration between performer and audience…Read On Here!

    DO IT J DUB! It was really nice to see Lesh and Bobby again. Great hearing dead tracks get some nice treatment. Russo is a beast on the kit. For a Tuesday in Wallingford, this may be your destiny! I had the same sentiment about catching someone you love before its too late – the bonus is that they sound pretty damn good.

    Also, it looks like the Oakdale didn’t sell out yet: ::stoking the fire::

    that’s all I’m saying, dude.

    we here are observant of it because we are obsessive phreaks who spend way too much time, money, and energy on this band and everything that surrounds it. but the general profile of people who attend shows is not us.

    I think the normal let’s-go-see-live-music-and-get-fucked-up people really don’t care what kind of guitar he is playing. they might see it and say “that looks like Trey’s” but that’d be the extent of it. and even that might be giving them too much credit.


    Big East Tourney starts today! woot!

  22. SillyWilly Says:

    Good morning, everyone!

    Hope everyones doing well.

    Weather is slowly loosening up up here in madison. Can’t wait for that first feel of spring.

    With Phish tickets in hand, the next logical progression is more sunshine and warmer temperatures.

  23. SillyWilly Says:

    P.S. Phish should play No One Receiving.

    love Before and After Science

  24. Kaveh Says:

    Can’t wait for that first feel of spring.

    ^I hear that @SillyWilly. More snow here tonight and tomorrow here in Minneapolis. That is why my wife and I booked a last minute trip to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, for a long weekend this weekend.

    Now I just need to hear from PTBM and I’m ready.

  25. SillyWilly Says:


    that’ll be super fun, man.

    i hope that snow you’re talking about isn’t moving east…
