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.

    There used to be a homeless transvestite named Leslie downtown that was like a cornerstone of Austin weird community.

    I mean, everybody knew Leslie. Sadly, there are always out of town jerks that act cool calling him a fag and an addict, but if you talked to him, he was eloquent and intelligent and opened a lot of minds to the plight of the homeless. While being in a thong and fishnets. Even ran for mayor of Austin, and had some really great ideas. Because his feet are truly on the ground.

    He recently passed away. A huge Austin loss. I told a friend that they should pass out shirts/clothes to all the guys at the Shelter that say “remember Leslie”

    Morning comrades

    I know many of you hate the Timer, but he actually has a pretty cool write up about the 3/13/92 show on his facebook page today.

    Never heard this, never really listened to much 92 (except that CA show with the great Tweezer, 4/21 or whatever), so downloading now.

    Lg, I’m a cynic by nature. This Kony scam affirms my reasoning. Thanks for bringing up a little inside story. The guy making the video is akin to the blonde haired blue eyed devil.

    @g711 – you going to eat your fat?
