“Venues of Summer Vol. I” & Utica Giveaway!

PNC Bank Arts Center - Holmdel, NJ

As Summer Tour is around the corner, and in the spirit of the new soundboard tracks from the archives that continue to trickle out from “Past Summer Tours,” I decided to combine a compilation of my own with a contest and giveaway. Here’s the deal: in the compilation linked below—”Miner’s Venues of Summer Vol. I”—you’ll find 12 tracks from the history of Leg One venues. Just drop folder into iTunes and the setlist of the compilation will pop-up. But here’s the catch, you won’t see the venues or dates of the selections. Your job is to come up with the correct venue and date for each selection, nothing too hard, and shoot me an email with the subject line “Summer Venue Contest.” All correct responses will be entered to win one of three brand spanking new copies of “Phish: Live In Utica” DVD/CD box set! All winning entries will be put into a hat and the three winners will be drawn at random. You may enter anytime until Sunday at 3pm pacific, and the winners will be announced on Monday! Send your entries to mrminer@phishthoughts.com (FYI: I didn’t get all techie and strip MP3 tags, but just drop the folder in iTunes and play by the honor code. The point is to get as many candidates as possible for the Utica drawing, not to trick anyone.)

Enjoy the Tunes!

Here’s a selection from Great Woods history that didn’t make the compilation, but is a retro-summer treat, nonetheless.

    i’ll whoop a Jehovas ass for some lakefront property.

    @lw : I dig all the other Herzog movies I’ve seen, even the Nic cage one, but that one just didn’t do it for me. Gotta see Fitzcaraldo soon.

  2. albert walker Says:

    loved the Cage and Herzog Bad Lieutenant. one of my favs from last year.

  3. voopa Says:

    “but also partially so that they can check out houses for after the rapture when they get to come back and have this shindig to themselves”.

    heard that too.

    Gnite folks, off to Camden Yards to see, baseball?

  7. Guyute711 Says:

    whoa voopa, what are those?

    It’s ok anyway, I just got invited to look at pictures of sexy older women in my neighborhood via e-mail. That balances out my good fortunes.

  8. kenny powers Says:

    damn, apparently social networking stocks are where it’s at. LinkedIn IPO off the chizzarts

  9. voopa Says:

    Some of my old GD cassettes, G711. I was inspired to snap that on Saturday when we were talking about 12-29-94 and I found my tapes of that show

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

  12. kenny powers Says:

    torrenting hiatus, pffft. as if!

  13. Mr. Palmer Says:

    kp- i made a concerted effort to actually listen to some of the music i’ve been yanking. crazy.. i know. 😉

  14. Guyute711 Says:

    I am out of here. Enjoy your G711 free day tomorrow folks.

  15. kenny powers Says:

    then you’re a better man than i. than me?

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:


  17. Kaveh Says:

    Is it me or is it really easy to get into listening to What’s the Use? over and over?

  18. BrandonKayda Says:

    I wish I could do the Miner challenge, but I didn’t read the whole thing and saw the dates in the titles of the songs. Oh well.

    Started The Loved One for school today. Interesting.

    Going to be writing a critical essay on The Hollow Men by TS Eliot

  19. Mike in Austin Says:

    @BK I think that will make quite a few winners out of it. The WTU was the only tough one for me.

    Are you reading the Graphic Novel of The Stand? Looking into buying it for the wife. One of her favorite King novels behind the Dark Tower Series.

  20. voopa Says:

    BK- The 1965 screen adaptation of The Loved One was one of my parent’s favorite movies. Guess I should check it out some time. Especially with a subtitle like “The motion picture with something to offend everyone!”

  21. BrandonKayda Says:

    Yes I am – it is fantastic.

    I am lucky though, because my mom left the Dark Tower series here – so that is definitely on my list.

  22. Kaveh Says:

    @Brandon…just read The Hollow Men…good paper material for sure. Enjoy that one.

  23. BrandonKayda Says:

    This is the way the world ends
    Not with a bang. but a whimper

  24. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Diving into the composed section of the AC Stash right now.

    By which I mean, the jam.


  25. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    then you’re a better man than i. than me?

    actually, I think you can use either one:

    Chances are, the word “as” or “than” is introducing an elliptical clause (a clause with an understood subject-verb relationship). That’s why we say, “You are a better man than I [am].” Some thoughtful writers say that the word “than” functions as a preposition (much in the same way that “like” works: “He is tall like me.”) and so should be followed by the objective form. They would write “You are a better man than me.” It’s hard to argue with that, frankly, but I still would use the nominative form in formal, academic prose.

    so I suppose “me” is more correct but “I” is not not correct? 😐
