One More For Vermont

9.14.2011

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 Phish.com, 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!

  2. Cable Hogue Says:

    Yeah, palestinian chicken ruled. Great ep. Do think the overall arc of the season has been a little bit lacking tho.

  7. joe Says:

  8. bob dylan Says:

    if that makes sense.

  9. Robear Says:

    Joe, I love that set. The peak after the final refrain in Scents is powerhouse n

  10. P.S.H.S. Says:

  11. joe Says:

  12. P.S.H.S. Says:

    Kathy Griffin
    Samantha Bee
    Lisa Lampanelli
    Whitney Cummings
    Chelsea Handler
    Margaret Cho
    Janeane Garofalo
    Kristen Schaal
    Amy Sedaris
    Wanda Sykes
    and Joan Rivers still kills it

  14. albert walker Says:

    thanks voopa

    just proved my point. pretty sure Sarah Silverman is the only funny chick comedian.

    maybe Wanda sykes on a good day.

    chick comedians aren’t funny unfortunately. FACT.

  15. albert walker Says:

    nice list of annoying ass females though

    fuckin LLama fast enough for you is so fuckin great

    Wolfman’s isn’t quite as hot as my head remembered it. something about that growlin tone when you’re lifted is so entertaining. still a great version.

  16. Gavinsdad Says:

    I like that chick from lucky Louie…his wife…she is demented.

  17. voopa Says:

    A friend saw Kathy and Joan locally recently and loved both.
    My wife regularly goes to Chelsea’s shows, loves her.
    Lisa and Whitney regularly kill it on the roasts.
    Everyone hates Margaret and Janeane because of their overt politics, but they are hilarious IMO.
    Sam and Schaal slay every time on the Daily Show, Amy is consistently hilarious on the talk shows.
    Maybe I need to become more sexist.

  18. albert walker Says:

    or get a sense of humor

  19. albert walker Says:

    I can’t get my fuckin streaming netflix to work

    want to check out this Louie show
    never seen it

    don’t know what to do. had this shit forever and it always works.

  20. P.S.H.S. Says:

    tina fey isn’t really a stand-up, but one of the better comedy writers out there

  21. albert walker Says:

    the only thing keeping me from going completely crazy that my fuckin netflix isn’t working is amusing myself picturing Voopa cracking up to a Kathy Griffin set

  22. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    you know why female comedians where jockstraps when they skydive?

  23. albert walker Says:

    why do I feel this punchline isn’t gonna help this convo sound any less sexist

  24. Mr. Palmer Says:

    My streaming Netflix has sucked balls ever since i dropped the discs and went to all streaming.

  25. stapes Says:

    you know why lesbians shop at sports authority?
