On the way to the show on Saturday, I saw this tweet from @AlexDavis_says, but didn’t have time to check it out. When I finally listened, I was blown away! Much props guys, this is absolutely hilarious!

  2. RoosterPizza Says:

    I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but that was hilarious.

    thanks gdad.

    well played phish. see you on the tube tomorrow.

    i like to hear some Bardo Pond talk. if you enjoy them Silly, you’ll need to check out LSD Pond. sorry for the long post, but it’s a good run of music to drone out to.

    “Old-school Philly ”post-psychedelic” masters [Bardo Pond] trading sweet, bluesy sounds with Japanese tradesmen [LSD-March] and [Masami Kawaguchi’s] New Rock Syndicate.
    It all fades in like they’ve been playing forever; moderately paced, long, dope-y, free-form jams in which the ideas go all unusual in the middle and often fall apart in the climaxes, kind of dark and almost without structure. Although this album just bleeds skill in the musicianship, it’s more about getting in the groove; I can just imagine their eyes back in their heads, bodies bobbing and weaving as the smoke thickens.
    Luckily the Pond-sters inject a dose of ” post-rock ” concentration into the proceedings, so that we have ’60s psych that sounds nowhere near the ’60s – no big-bloused, flower-chain poofterism here – grittier, like ’70s urbanism had been introduced into the mix, minus the afros and street dealing funk.
    It’s not psychedelica as much as an interest in stringing out the music to see how far they can go, working the limits and fingering the edges. Then with the second CD we get a different line-up which pushes it rougher, odder, more whacked-out. A damaged yet solid wall-of-sound versus the distinct notes of the first disc.
    [Especially check-out the ambient noise-into-cool-machine-moaning improv of “Sugatanaki Kyofu”]. And here on this side Isobel Sollenberger’s dervish vox provide a human-esque highlight for what’s been primarily instrumental. Particularly in the finale of “Yoru Kara Yorue” where her voice acts as a sane anchor amidst the wicked storm. All great, and I don’t even take drugs.
    THIS IS MASSIVE guys… constant repetition and flawless psychedelic-drone sound for a trip and a half. By all means GET IT.”

    Berkeley Head, a few months ago someone from the BB recommended these headphones:

    Beyerdynamic DT 770-PRO Headphones (avail from Amazon for $191)

    for earbuds, I and a few others rave about the Klipsch Image S4 (~$65)

    tho to stop them from slipping out while exercising I’d recommend getting the Comply TX-100 Series Foam Tips (3 pack, $20)

    and check for reviews

    wow mike has really stepped up his fashion this year. good stuff

    going to be hitting the road in about an hour here. finally phish time again. been a while since essex. great, tiny venue tonight & tomorrow. enjoy the stream if you aren’t able to make it

  7. m00nshake Says:

    Good morning everyone. Going on a twenty mile bike ride than coming back home to grill steaks and then head out to Portsmouth, which is around two hours away. I love the venue and here’s hoping for a great two shows!

  8. Guyute711 Says:

    Back at work, this fucking sucks!!! I was born to go on benders.

  9. bhizzle Says:

    I heard Mike had to run to his Sgt. Pepper’s cover band show directly after, no time to waste!

    I was born to go on benders. Sounds like a good country western song

  10. bhizzle Says:

    Also, good to LT retire as a Charger.

  11. bhizzle Says:

    to “see”

  12. Gavinsdad Says:

    Ugh. Work.

  13. Guyute711 Says:

    That was the one thing I saw on tv this past weekend bhizzle.

  14. MiA Says:

    KP found a great deal on Sennheiser HD -595’s that I love ($129) I use them with a headphone amp and I can’t say enough about how important that is if you can’t plug your phones into your home amp.

    uForce uDAC2.

    KP finds great deals all the time.

  15. GhostPhunk Says:

    @gdad – I know brother, I know. It took me the whole week after Worcester to even be semi productive, still reeling.

    @mr. C – love the stickers, especially “discontinued”. I was listening to the Ark shows from 69 last night, such an inspired run of music on 4-22 in particular.

  16. bob dylan Says:

    Easing back into the real world.

    How bout that woman who wanted us to give her nugs for her metal pipe as were burning a j?

  17. alf Says:

    morning comrades

    another great weekend. Atlantic City is, in fact, a perfect town for phish (I love jersey). Great to see everyone again, and meet a couple new kids. BB crew evolving in new ways. Just plain cannot beat GA phish.

    I’m pretty blown away by phish 2012, especially trey and fish. trey is just crushing right now. there is a level of cohesion, conversation and patience among the band that has, once again, raised the bar

    really, really impressive how many different styles and sounds the band is kicking out right now, at will.

    as for the last show specifically, timber through reba is just phish killing it. but more broadly, the first 5 shows i could not be more happy about

    bummin: no more GA phish for me (time to get serious about dicks)

  18. SillyWilly Says:

    Probably the same woman who came up to me and DancinFool after the second night, got right up close to my face, and asked:

    “How old are you?”

    “25. How old are you?”

    “uh, you never ask a lady how old she is.”

  19. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    great pics. what’s the over/under on how many people steal that last one for their fb timeline?

    I may be wrong, but did we get out of AC without a single Streets of Cairo tease?

    and look at this setlist.

    Set 1: Suzy Greenberg, Julius, The Lizards, Axilla (Part II) > The Curtain > Fast Enough for You, Scent of a Mule, Stash, Golgi Apparatus
    Set 2: Faht, Run Like an Antelope, If I Could, Reba > Makisupa Policeman, The Squirming Coil, My Sweet One, Highway to Hell
    Encore: Free Bird

    looks pretty boring, eh? yeah, that was the 6.19 setlist from the fabled June 94 run. I’ll take AC3 over that any day.

  20. alf Says:

    had no idea what the hell was happening there bob d

    granola for breakfast!!

  21. Lycanthropist Says:

    oh man T3

    that is a bit ugly…

    had that setlist dropped in anytime during 3.0 or 4.0 or whatever, it would have incited riots.

  22. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    well, isn’t that convenient…
    the mini-dvi to hdmi cables I ordered from newegg are arriving today.
    phish has a webcast tonight.
    I finished my midterm and have nothing going on this evening.
    funny how that happens.

    speaking of convenient coincidences, @LEO you got my DC pav, brah?!?!

  23. SillyWilly Says:

    Dude, Alf…

    Don’t eat that granola: Spend it.

  24. SillyWilly Says:


    thanks a lot for the LSD Pond

    still spinning Birds right now (a Birds jam a day, keeps the coppers away)

    but I look forward to making it my pre-stream listening tonight.

  25. marcoesq Says:

    Morning all. Just trying to compose myself and pack for flight up to Providence today. Rescheduling dinner that never happened from Woost2.

    Great times out in that field and beach this weekend. That AC skyline backdrop provided many an amazing picture. We need to get some up on Miner’s site.
