“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!

Halley’s -> Roses -> NO2” 7.13.99 I

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

    I saw PE and Sonic Youth together and it was the loudest show I have ever been to. There was a riot on the street afterwards. It was that good.

    Saw PE maybe 2 summers ago at Pitchfork and they killed it again. Hank Shocklee dj’d before hand and killed it, totally repping the bassheavy dubstep sound, very very heavy. Bomb Squad for life.

    yikes, on that terrible note. g’night.

    My neighbor is the chief of police in my town. My house was broken into while we were away 4 years ago. Stole all my wife’s jewelry except her wedding ring, which she had on. The asshole cop neighbor never once came over to say a word to us. Not even a ” we are working hard on it”. No updates, no leads, no effort. I’m sure the asshole makes a fortune too.

    Halfway through that last sentence I thought you were going to besmirch Seinfeld.

    One of those “OH COME O… oh wait OK nice.” kind of moments.

  11. win butler Says:

    we’ll trade you alaska for Quebec, but you have to keep Palin

    ^no deal. why do you think i came here to begin with. some of you may think my band blows but i’m no idiot.

  12. DukeOfLizards Says:


    If it’s not too much trouble, just a few minutes to discuss the benefits of universal healthcare. If you don’t mind. Eh.

  13. SillyWilly Says:

  17. DukeOfLizards Says:


    Grails – Deep Politics (which has been pimped here before) is a fucking TREMENDOUS record.

    It’s like they wrote the soundtrack to a bad-ass spaghetti western that no one ever made.
