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.

    Is there usually just one CC hold for your entire ticket purchase? Because if so, then I only got 1 of 2 nights for Portsmouth. 🙁

    seems a perfect time for a Taint Splasher

  4. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    just be.

    Yup, and we all are connected. no need to fight it. Get the ego out of the way, it is a fascinatingly obtuse construct.

    I am as twisted as they come. progress not perfection. perfection is a myth

    @MiA re: Walter White

    Why must you insist on making color an issue?

    “The entire world is nothing but your own projection. It is based on your thoughts and mental attitude. If there is hell in your mind, you won’t see heaven anywhere. If there is heaven in your mind, even hell will be a heaven for you.”

    Tuco Salamanca: What’s your name?

    Walt: Heisenberg.

    Tuco Salamanca: Have a seat Heisenberg.

    Walt: I don’t imagine I’ll be here very long.

    Tuco Salamanca: No, al’ght. It’s your meeting. Why don’t you start talking and tell me what you want.

    Walt: $50,000.

    Tuco Salamanca: [laughs] 50 g’s! How do you figure that?

    Walt: 35 for the pound of meth you stole and 15 for my partner’s pain and suffering.

    Tuco Salamanca: Oh yeah. I remember that little bitch. So you must be daddy. Let me get this straight. I steal your dope, I beat the piss out of your mule boy, and you bring me more meth? That’s brilliant.

    Walt: You got one part of that wrong. This is not meth.

  14. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

  17. sumodie Says:

    1 hold for 1 ticket (Woosta floor or either Portsmouth)

    Not out of the game yet tho…

  18. sumodie Says:

    Is there usually just one CC hold for your entire ticket purchase?


    Also, some CC companies do not show holds at all

    And for those that show holds, the hold can appear and then disappear later on as it’s being processed into a transaction (ie, you may miss seeing a hold & still score tix)

  19. Mike in Austin Says:

    Sel J, gotta watch the show to find out.

  20. viola Says:

    excellent post t3. i like that you point out that its not a “fuck it” attitude but more of a standing strong, and making personal choices.
