“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.

    Chucks voice is sick @piggy. Confident and stern. Great enunciation. Unique flow/cadence.

    I guess he’d be in my top few. Right alongside Kool G Rap 😉

  4. Lycanthropist Says:

    Not quite bob

  5. bob dylan Says:

    that actually worked a couple ways. was singing ballad of a thin man.

    You raise up your head
    And you ask, “Is this where it is?”
    And somebody points to you and says
    “It’s his”
    And you say, “What’s mine?”
    And somebody else says, “Where what is?”
    And you say, “Oh my God
    Am I here all alone?”

    ^^thats what its like at the WW booth sometimes during set break.

    I’d put Rakim and KRS-One on my all-time oldschool rapper’s list as well.

  7. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    What’s up evening crew? Sunny day, IPA. Could be worse. Oh, and6/23/74 weather report suite. Musical density.

  8. Lycanthropist Says:

    No love for the funky homosapien?

  9. mitch Says:

    didnt i tell you guys ive got stripper friends and they asked to come to bethel?? shit. i thought you guys wouldnt care so i told them they could crash and we’d figure out beds when we got there.

    guess that one slipped my mind til now… hope you guys are ok with it.

  10. joe Says:

    but agree on Chuck D…he’s also way shorter than I thought he was. PE did a show at a small rock club (the middle east downstairs for those familiar with Mass venues) about a decade ago. Chilled at the bar upstairs before the show and they were hanging there as well. Only bad thing about the show was terminator x was not with them…

    and for willowed:

    6.24.00 Tweezer

    I guess Miner pimped it here a few weeks ago, but I just can’t keep up…

  12. bob dylan Says:

    well mitch, on the bright side

    if I go down dyin’, you know she bound to put a blanket on your bed.

  13. ThePigSong Says:

    the Middle East, my homie that now is at BK bowl used to work at the ME. Never caught anything spectacular there, but free admission and drinks was pretty dope.

  14. joe Says:

    I like Del better when Jen Hartswick does his lyrics

  15. mitch Says:

    pigsong, were all going sat he should join up

  16. ThePigSong Says:

    going where?

  17. Tzara's Ghost Says:

    This jam into ship of fools is about as blissful as it gets.

  18. Lycanthropist Says:


    My first tweezer



  19. mitch Says:

    BB meetup at brooklyn bowl saturday @pigsong

    Fear of a Black Planet is where I got IT with hip hop. Still not my go to genre, but there’s some I really dig.

  21. joe Says:

    saw a cool Morphine show there. Think I saw bob dylan in attendance one night. A couple of great Lee Perry shows and a few very good Luna shows. Also tortoise on the memorable list. My buddy used to have great connections there and we always got in for free.

  22. ThePigSong Says:

    Twist>Slave is the epitome of why I’m into this band

    (recently leaked SBD of 7.4.00)

  23. joe Says:

    I got IT with Fear of a Black Planet while mowing my dad’s lawn. Talk about oppression.

  24. ThePigSong Says:

    fucking awesome Lycan.

    I think my buddy works days on Sat & Sun – I’m sure he’ll be there raging if something decent is going down. Not sure how he’d react to me asking him to meet up with my internet friends though 😉

  25. joe Says:

    can’t remember the show dylan was (maybe?) at. Guitar guy who played it dobro slide style and attracted tons of fans who dessed like the outsiders. Totally drawing a blank.
