One More For Vermont


Just when you thought it was safe to put away the dancing shoes for the season…we’ve got one more show! After capping a massive tour on Sunday, Phish announced yesterday that they will play a one-night benefit for Vermont Flood Recovery at Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction, Vermont on Wednesday, September 14. Last weekend, Hurricane Irene brought the worst flooding in nearly a century to Vermont while causing devastation to many parts of the band’s home state, and now Phish will step up to help.

9.2.11 (G.Lucas via webcast)

A 24-hour ticket request period ends at Noon today, with options available for “Best Available” $75 GA tickets (either stands or field) and a “Friends of the Waterwheel Package” that includes preferred parking, a reserved box seat, a limited edition event poster, and access to a Vermont craft beer tent. Additionally, in an effort to assure locals get tickets, the only be general-on sale will take place this Saturday, September 10, at 10am at a location to be disclosed on Friday on, email update, and local Vermont Radio. The Champlain Valley Expo holds 10,505 people, but with a limited-access on sale, tickets may not be as easy as they sound. Then again, on a Wednesday night directly following a 33-show tour, perhaps people won’t be chomping at the bit to make it to one more show. It will be interesting to see how tickets shake out.

The Phish from Vermont

This show marks only the eighth Phish show in Vermont since 1993, and the first in the band’s home state since the Coventry debacle back in 2004. A special show, without question, it certainly doesn’t suck that the band is getting another chance to play together right now—a time when they are churning out consistently great music. And a small break seems to do the aging wizards quite well. So in just one week, Phish will take the stage for a summer encore, the 34th show of the year, and an earnest goodbye until (likely) December. The show will surely be one to remember and once it sells out, something tells me there will be a webcast option as well, as this is all to bring money to a struggling state.

Before even getting a chance to post a reaction to Denver’s peak of summer or to speculate when the band will next take the stage, we’ve got one show to look forward with the Phish from Vermont. And this time, we’ll be in Vermont!

    Pretty sure it was AW thet brought this to my attention the other day, and he couldn’t me more correct. Whole lot of similarities in the Dick’s Tweezer and MSG Ghost from NYE. That whole celebration of life type of jamming style. Fucking awesome.

  2. MrCompletely Says:

    sooo funny @aw

    I tracked that down last time it was mentioned on here

    not a silverman fan in general but that was epic

  3. albert walker Says:

    Too bad UM are all sterile and rawk and no soul or psychedelia

  4. Mike in Austin Says:

    Yeah, the first time I watched Sarah Silverman not high as fuck, I realized she sucked.

  5. MrCompletely Says:

  7. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I like Sarah Silverman. Not sure why. Something about her. Oh well.

  8. Mike in Austin Says:

  9. bob dylan Says:

    Dick’s Tweezer and MSG Ghost from NYE

    i listend on the train and was thinking that too. its a whole band build and is sole cleansing.

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I didn’t do the webcast that night, but i certainly believe it was brought up.

  11. Mike in Austin Says:

    I wonder if IT realizes I’m on LivePhish, streaming that Tweezer 19x today?

  12. albert walker Says:

    I love her

    But smart puffing chicks that make rape racist and abortion jokes tends to be my thing

  13. bob dylan Says:

    i always found her attractive. she came into my job and was told she had to pay 200 bucks. she looked at the girl and said “is it because I’m a jew?” and the girl is indian. i busted out laughing on that one.

  14. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Obama looks like he’s 60 years old now. Poor bastard.

  15. bob dylan Says:

    b double e double r u n, beer run

    be back

  16. Mike in Austin Says:

    Like Holy Ghost, there is more Mike grooving that thing fast forward than any Trey acrobatics or amazing licks. Just like I like it.

    Although there is that point where Trey steps on the phaser that gets me every time.

  17. bob dylan Says:

    his job has a touch of stress. he doesn’t get to forget about it as soon as he walks out the door and then do bingers when he gets home like i do. shit, even I’ve got gray hairs here and there now.

  18. albert walker Says:

    This other episode one of the metal head dudes discovers the only track on his metal head boyfriends ipod is spin doctors

    Funny shit

  19. Mr. Palmer Says:

    There must be a weird gene or psychological disorder that makes an individual want to be POTUS.

  20. albert walker Says:

    Forgot about obummer

    Need to watch this

  21. Mike in Austin Says:

    I have a Sarah Silverman rule with a friend.

    We were watching Sarah Silverman, and we both thought she sucked shit, but didn’t say anything, because we thought the other person liked it so we just took one for the team. At the end, I said “That sucked balls. Why did we watch it?” He agreed.

    Now, when we both realize something just sucks balls, we look at each other …

    “Sarah Silverman?”
    “Let’s get out of here.”

  22. Mr. Palmer Says:

    didn’t catch the beginning. Sounds like lots of tax incentives for small businesses.

  23. bob dylan Says:

    NYC credit minimum extortion may be the most annoying thing about this place.

  24. albert walker Says:

    Another proof of the law MIA

    We agree on nothing
    Except that tweezer maybe

  25. Robear Says:

    Mia, got email. I’ll stop shaking the local PO down.

    Dicks Hood is so sick. Only a moron would groan at a Hood in that slot.

    12/29/95 ” the audience let out a big groan when they dropped a mid first set Hood, expecting a Sample or Sparkle in that slot”

    My OPT impression^
