“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.

  5. BingosBrother Says:

    Thats fucking phenomenal Ackbar.

    I also hate cops. Used to have a shirt from a punk rock band that said Fuck the Law on the back. Didn’t wear it out much.

  6. jdub Says:

    Hard to keep up with all the changing names when you don’t come around here that often anymore. I thought Win Butler was one of Mitch’s sideshows, Dancing Fool I take it. But I’m on to Ackbar, gotta be that witty California college kid. Maybe I’m late on that one too.

    Closer we get to Bethel the more I wish I held back a bit last year. Hard to miss a tour opening weekend a couple hours from home. That’s alright, they’ll be primed to lay it down in Mansfield.

  7. BrandonKayda Says:


    Reading things like that makes me wish I was more informed about what is going on daily. Sure it’s depressing, but I think some cynicism is healthy.

  8. BingosBrother Says:

    Read some Robert Anton Wilson BK. its much more informative. Illuminatus Trilogy, Prometheus Rising. wish I had started at your age.

  9. BTB Says:

    BTB Fest II is up to 35 peeps in the RSVP category – 3 weeks to go

    7 minutes behind schedule

  10. halcyon Says:

    @ BK

    Last quote though was optimistic: “We must never give up. We must never allow hope to be eliminated or suffocated.”

  11. BrandonKayda Says:


    Yep. Definitely easier said than done though, from the sounds of it.

  12. SillyWilly Says:

    Cynicism is a good thing as long as it doesn’t turn to complacency

  13. BrandonKayda Says:

    I agree @Silly.

  14. Jtran Says:


    Where do I rsvp?

  15. BrandonKayda Says:


  16. BTB Says:

    36! ha…I’m just keeping a tab in my notebook at work. There’s about 11 on FB and the rest are emails I’m getting, BB’ers and other dudes.

    Similar to last year, good people just looking for a place to crash on a 3 night run. One guy was all freaked he was doing all 3 shows by himself and his email was so sincere…touching really.


  17. Mike in Austin Says:

    I plan on checking this out. Have two other friends coming with too.

  18. BTB Says:


    Listened to the concerto BK – liked it. tx

  19. garretc Says:

    Greetings from happening Medford, Oregon! Decidedly not the burrito capital of the world, apparently, just in case you were expecting great things…

  20. Mike in Austin Says:

    Yeah BK. I need to discover this Pijper guy.

  21. BrandonKayda Says:

    Scriabin is awesome as well. Really love some of the scary dissonant avantgarde Classical music. Most of it is fantastic though. Need to listen to more of it.

  23. albert walker Says:

    just the other day I was telling this 40 something back office worker at the fund that all cops are fucks.

    she told me she had friends that were cops. I said they were fucks. I then said I’m even questioning you right now for being friends with cops.

  24. Willowed Says:


    Mansfield will own. Woot woot
