TTFT: Miami ’09 & March Madness

12.29.09 - Miami, FL (Wendy Rogell)

As we finish our audio retrospective of 2009, today brings us to Miami. Riding the cresting momentum of fall tour’s back end, there was a sense that something special would happen down south. Heading to the proximity of Big Cypress ten years later and back to American Airlines Arena six years later, plenty of memories and anticipation hung in the air. And when the band left Miami, they had found a new sense of musical purpose, bringing their playing to a new level while inspiring the community and making the future look brighter than ever. Mike had been using his envelope filter more and more towards the end of fall, and in a New Year’s Run in which he was the undeniable leader, the effect was prominent in many of the jams. Achieving a new level of musical density, Phish was hitting on all cylinders as the calendar turned to 2010. Today’s playlist is comprised entirely of Miami highlights. Stay tuned from a trip through 2010 starting tomorrow.

    First post, lucky me! Oh, just days away from a St Maarten Vacation and I have never anticipated a charge to my credit card more than right now! Thanks Miner…having re-hashed 2009 over the past few weeks, exciting to go back and remember where I was when all this went down, physically and mentally! 3 long years ago! Enjoy the day!

  2. SillyWilly Says:

  3. RoosterPizza Says:

    Huge amount of work done and staying the night in Stowe at a place with pub attached. “Can’t wait!”

  4. SillyWilly Says:

    sounds like a $$$ Tuesday, Rooster

  5. dyda Says:

    you forgot to slide a highlight or two from F8 in one of these 09 playlists

  6. RoosterPizza Says:

    Oh yeah! Rock art brewery is only 8 miles way as well.

    My research has been going well, but that has been on the back burner for an “extended” homework assignment I had to do for my class. I now know that extended means about forty hours worth of work.

    How goes by you willy? Law school, right?

  7. ReidIcculus Says:

    what up BB?!?

    In case you missed it, a great interview w/ CK5

    Confirms Second Leg, talks the party backstage…

  8. BTB Says:

    That 12/30 Set I is still one of my favorite 2009 sets.

    The Corrina truly is a gem

  9. SillyWilly Says:

    Yeah, law school, Rooster.

    Last semester. Gotta find a job. Feeling ok about it though. Just gonna focus on summer tour and then let the real world take me where it wants after

  10. litteringand Says:

    Hey BB,
    I dont really have any other outlet to bring this up, so here goes. I work for a company who is partnered with the organization responsible for the Kony 12 viral video, Invisible Children. If the this organization is even half as deceitful as the company I work for than you already have plenty to worry about. So please let your friends and family know that if they truely want to help fund organizations that help the African citizens, then they should look elsewhere. I aplogize if this isn’t the platform for this, but I’m not in a position to let my true feelings on this subject be known anywhere else, I still need my job. This seems like a pretty enlightened group so I thought I throw my two cents in on subject I’m pretty familar with.

    Whats the use-> tela was nice also, best versions since their return, i think there could be 2 days of miami highlights.

  12. oldskool Says:

    @Rooster, try and make the trip here

    One of the best (if not the nest) brewery in the US that nobody talks about

  13. Dr Pronoia Says:

    Wow Litteringand

    Only watched a bit of that video but it’s a shame the people behind it are as disingenuous as you seem to imply. Is there a fundraising pitch at te end or something?

  14. Dr Pronoia Says:

    Little guy has a stomach bug, his first, so I’m home with him this AM before grandma arrives to help

    Treating him to UIC 1

    Wish I had some pedialyte on the floor at UIC1…

  15. Cable Hogue Says:

    Wow, Waves vs The Curtain is a tough matchup. 1st round fireworks.

  16. acleo Says:

    Gooooooooood morning BB! What would be the sain amout of times to check my bank account today to “check my status”….? I got the Tar Heals going “all the way baby”. Have a blessed day and may all our request be met!!!! Peace.

  17. alf Says:

    this you @mia? using skills you picked up on tour? 😆

  18. acleo Says:

    @ dr. P my prayers are with u and the little man. I’m not a dr., but how bout water downed OJ???

  19. Dr Pronoia Says:

    Thanks acleo!

    He’s on the upswing I think. Waves>undermind is doing him good

  20. litteringand Says:

    The video is emotional porn, with very little subtance and questionable “facts”. At the end you can buy the t-shirt and own the night all for the low price of 30 dollars. Which more than likely will go to bumping a privalaged white kid from coach to business class on his flight to the dark continent

  21. MiA Says:

    Not me alf. I like it though.

    You can buy rental space on 4 guys in kilts though.

    The amount of blatant marketing explosion makes Austin l

    You can buy rental space on 4 guys in kilts though.

    The amount of blatant marketing explosion makes Austin the tchotchke capital of the US.

    This is OK by the “webnerdz” as long as its for small companies wanting to be big corporations.

    Logos everywhere.

  23. MiA Says:

    That’s a paddlin’

  24. alf Says:

    i like it too

    newsflash: all wage jobs are exploitative, regardless of who is working them, and your daily life depends on the exploited labor of others (amirite, comrades?)

    gets a bit uncomfortable when you’re directly confronted with that labor. i love this story actually.

    Sane!!!!!!!!!! Not sain ;/
