“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.

    When I was playing a lot of bass back in the day I loved Chopin.

    I ended up incorporating a lot of chromatics into my playing after studying him for a bit

  7. Aquaman Says:

    I’d hate to be busted, broke, in jail, seated at the table with my public defender and see him playing with his chromatics. Fer reel, yo.

    Gotta say, you’re ant story gave me the willies, big time… Every time we get ants in the house I have an intense feeling of dread that I’ll look into a cup, or into the coffee maker, or whatever and see just a roiling mass of ants…

    So basically you lived through one of my worst fears, congratulations!

  14. garretc Says:

    Wow, what the hell is wrong with my you’re/your mix ups lately? It has reached epidemic status the last couple weeks…

  15. Robear Says:

    Garret, you are less than three hours from the Oasis.

  16. garretc Says:

    Pobably even closer now, Robear! Chirrin in the Yreka Baymont Inn & Suites, cause we’re classy like that…

  17. sumodie Says:

    interesting stats:


    check out the 2nd chart

  18. Bwana Says:

    nice. cool chart. and similar to Haynes, Trey and Mike would both have higher total ‘different songs played’ if they added their solo bands songs during ’09 and ’10…

  19. brother Says:

    row jimmy row 5/8/77 has got me feelin lonely…..missin my girl…seems a common way to go….go on an row…slide guitar

  20. JeffieM Says:

    Anybody home?

    Fuck the po po.

    Gotta tell my parents in the morning.

  21. garretc Says:

    Hmm, whatever happened JeffieM, sounds like it wasn’t good… Hopefully it’s not particularly bad though…

    Good luck with any fallout to come!

  22. JeffieM Says:

    Court date June 28, Garret

    nothing awful. No one’s dead. It just makes life a bit harder for a while.

  23. garretc Says:

    I was figuring it wasn’t going to be anything felonious, I’m not sure they let felons post on Phish blogs…

    Sucks to have that hanging over your head though, I’ve been lucky to stay out of trouble so far, sometimes life just screws you, unfortunately…

    Not to make light of a serious situation, but wouldn’t it be awesome if your court date was in Wisconsin and Silly was assigned as your public defender? If I was in your shoes that might even make the whole thing worthwhile! Damn, that was definitely making light of the situation, my bad…

    Good luck with everything, and don’t let it get you down too hard, all things shall pass.

  24. JeffieM Says:

    Haha, I’d love Silly as a PD. Sadly, North Carolina, not Wisconsin.

    Not that anyone needs to hear it, but be careful out there, kids. Trying to sleep a bit before telling the parents in the morning. Damn.
