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.

    I truly am working on it. I struggle with it, no doubt.

    Thank you very much for reminding me.

    Halloween ’95 was definitely an eye-opening adventure. I’m not quite sure how we made it back to West Lafayette that night. I was extremely spun, and not driving. Thank the lord.

  14. Duder Says:

    I was so burnt after 10 shows that by the time we got to the 45 YEM I was done. I really loved the My Gen. encore!

  15. Mr palmer Says:

    Brandon Marshall is the definition of a bad guy.

    Anyone remember his girlfriends 911 calls? Dude had a knife and was trying to knock her door down. You can here him screaming on the 911 call.

    That’s one of about 8 donestic violence issues with Brandon.

  16. Mr palmer Says:

    Hear, Not here

  17. Duder Says:

    I hear ya’ Palmer… don’t condone that shit

    but the dude is fast and can catch! 😉

  18. Mr palmer Says:

    He’s a great football player when he’s focused. He and Cutler might make a great tandem.

  19. Duder Says:

    9 years since the last 1000 yd receiver for the C. Bears = Marty Booker

  20. Duder Says:

    they did in Denver =J. Cutler to the Pro-Bowl I believe

  21. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    Gracias, T3.

  22. lumpyhead Says:

    good advice @ Pham B.

    but also, silly, if you’re thinking that, you’re doing something right. it’s just a matter of balance from here on out, I reckon.

  23. voopa Says:

    Cutler/Marshall were Pro Bowl’d in ’08.

    Phish smash

  24. Chonz Says:

    got my hold!

  25. Mr palmer Says:

    I forgot they played together. Good move.

    Guess Peyton isn’t going to Miami?
