    What show will Phish visit the storage shed?

    Will the thermin be used?

    What set?

    What jam will it be?

    I say 12/29. Yes. Set 2. BOAF

    I am going out on a limb on this one. Trying to keep it fun.

  5. willowed Says:

    and yes, today is the first day that the excitement has really started to bubble in the pit of my belly.

  6. JMelby Says:

    Nice work Mr Miner & I agree with the comments about that thick book. Going to buy mine at your booksigning.

    Happy 14 anniversary of my favorite Phish one time cover; Them Changes! My last song of ’97 & one I’ve been waiting for since.

  7. willowed Says:

    After reading my post, let me clarify.

    I am hoping the Phish visit the shed more than once.

    What I meant to sat is; when do we think Phish will visit the shed, for the first time, during the MSG run?

    Yeah, that’s better.

  8. stapes Says:

    Good luck to Mrs Beantown!

    Book looks great. Hopefully ordering mine this weekend.

    Halfway thru the week!

    3 seeds currently. SIIICK show. This was the first time I ever heard of a show recorded by two different people holding mics FOB 30′ from each other. And it pays off, big time. Fantastic AUD!

    Also the only time I had a piece confiscated at a show. Bastards.

    @ willowed- cant wait for the shed on 29
    AW sorrybabout your pooch. So worried my 11 yr old pooch is going to do serious damage that way. Up and down 20 times a day on the couch and bed.-

  12. Kaveh Says:

    Just checked: my 1997 boxset is out for delivery: the goods will be ready when I get home; excellent!

  13. WolfmansFather Says:

    Utica Bowie starting today off

  14. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Spasm is chasing the Theremin and shed-like jam.

  15. willowed Says:

    I only got it once, in Denver.

    Thank you Phish and thank you Piper.

  16. Kaveh Says:

    Still chasing: BBFCFM.

  17. butter Says:

    morning guys

    posting in the wrong thread to start my day

    NICE BOOK, Miner cant wait to get it !!

    spining Alpine dvd1 (left d2 in the hotey last holiday run) doh! on Suzy

  18. Spasm Waiter Says:

    With zero 2.0 shows under my belt, i am chasing some pretty standard stuff as well…

  19. butter Says:

    wow thanks @WolfmansFather, that Roots drop just made my day

    and my internet is dl unusually fast right now

  20. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Chasing- LaGrange, Jesus Just Left Chicago, and ( gulp) Tela….

  21. butter Says:

    enough Alpine 10

    back to hip hop

  22. butter Says:

    Tela is a classic hard to catch song, Palmer. once a Phish kid starts chasing Tela its usually a journey

    then it’ll end up like your CEP experience, where when you finally get one — The boys will then make it rain Tela’s all over u

  23. butter Says:

    pretty sure i’ll still buy “Undun” in lossless, but now i have a chance to make sure i want it

    future ftw

  24. marcoesq Says:

    morning everyone. get em

  25. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I guess if your going to get a song rained all over you, CEP isn’t all that bad.

    The last night at UIC was the capper though. I was flying high and they kept bringing it back, over and over again. One of those bizarre, “is this really happening or am i tripping really hard moments”…. Of course the answer to both was yes, which made it even more confusing. Only at a Phish show.
