    How many Phish shows over the years have had an 11pm start time?

    I’m guessing one: Friday at Bonnaroo. Hope your Bill Graham possibility makes two.

    seriously that ruined my whole month of april. Mainly because it led me to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6nnBjxjxQs&NR=1

    lou reed just lost some cool points……………….didn’t think that was possible.

    For some far out psychedelic freak music hop on the latest Acid Mothers Temple torrent:


    I keep meaning to spin more from this Japanese band but that VT band keeps hogging the pod

  5. BrandonKayda Says:

    This Phil and Phriends is fantastic

  6. BrandonKayda Says:

    Does Metal Machine Music in any way make up for that @LW?

  7. sumodie Says:

    I am severely lacking in ’95 shows i’ve just realized

    You need some ‘Bush! Click on my name for torrent links to the Sugarbush ’95 shows

    Another easy win is the December 1995 megatorrent (every show -take your pick):

  8. tela'smuff Says:

    wow sumo! need to clear up some space.

  9. lastwaltzer Says:


    Sadly I think not. that is just some real weak sauce. 😉

  10. butter Says:

    There are other Phish websites? 😉

    Hey Hey BB….

    Checkin in from the east coast…..Red Wagon IPA to hold me down tonite…

    Tough bittersweet and sad days have been allowing for love and gratitude and good memories to enter in….

  12. halcyon Says:

    Found a radio station program from Columbia University that has been playing Northern and Southern Indian Classical and meditative music. It has been soothing for the soul.

    Oh man, that really is brutal…


  14. tela'smuff Says:

    be good Halcyon, vibes still being sent.

    as for the Gorge, Wild Horse vs. Premier camping?

  15. butter Says:

    Hey Hal – sounds like your hangin in there

    This too, will pass

  16. vegas wolfmans Says:

    tmuff- Wildhorse. Giddy up!

  17. butter Says:

    If raging with all different peeps from 2am till sunrise is a priority choose premiere

    If convenience like restocking ice, grassy camping, RV hookups, and getting some peace and rest after 2am choose wild horse

  18. Selector J Says:

    Love the Boozer-Psycho T matchup.
    Boozer’s game is all about throwing his weight around in the post and Hansbrough loves contact– thrives on it.

  19. butter Says:

    19-5 run, bitches!

  20. tela'smuff Says:

    wild horse it is! thax fellas.

    butter, the sox are in a spiral. what happened?

  21. vegas wolfmans Says:

    The horsey is nice because there’s lots o’ shade. Might be 95 degrees out here on that side of the mountains in August. We need to have a west coast black board meet up. I still only know a handful of you crackers.

    Gorge>Tahoe for me. Skipping the skip show.

  22. butter Says:

    Could easily be well over a 100 , it’s the dessert

    I don’t know Telas, watched the whole game tonite, no pop to the bats, and the pitchers aren’t stopping anybody. Edwin Jackson started tonite and got rocked for three in the first, kinda leveled out, but didn’t get any support. 0-5 loss

  23. butter Says:

    Could be a long season if we don’t get some clicking, soon

    Expect some good sound bites coming up from our wizard of OZ

  24. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    Evenin’, vegas. I was going to skip the skip the skip show too, then I realized that SEA->LAX->RNO + SFO->SEA was about the same price as SEA->RNO round trip. Think about it…

  25. tela'smuff Says:

    Ozzie won’t make it through the season if this goes bad. Kenny will have him bounced. Things looked ugly last year at this time then we got hot in late May through the All-Star break. Once the weather turns I’m hoping things get better.
