TTFF: Highlights of Summer

Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (Michael Stein)


Light > Ghost” 7.1 II Alpine

One of the smoothest and most original segments of music from Leg One.



Undermind” 8.31 I Dick’s

The best first set closer ever?



Birds of a Feather” 6.15 II, AC

At the end of the summer, this “Birds” from the first night of AC, can still hang with any jam of the season.



Tweezer” 8.17 II, SF

A banger from Bill Graham.



Twist” 6.22 II, Cincy

Jesus Christ Super Twist. Never Forget.



Carini”  6.7 II, Worcester

The first jam of summer still sounds just as fresh as it did in June.



Piper” 8.18 II, SPAC

The “Piper” of the summer.



Sand > Roggae” 6.22 II, Cincy

A full-band funk jam in “Sand,” the likes of which we didn’t hear in the second half of summer.



Harry Hood” 8.15 II, Long Beach

This multi-tiered “Hood” punctuated a majestic opening night in Long Beach.

    $$$ rolling stone issue. great review of boardwalk empire, story about Sierra Blanca, TX ( the town known for stopping tour buses and making pot arrests on the stars — willie, snoop, fiona), story about bones brigade riding again for a new movie, news that neil young has quit herbs (and drinking too) after decades of “nonstop toking,” news of lost 1965 stones documentary coming out, excerpt from pete townshead memoirs

    how many more ga floors vs seated floor tix can be sold? 2x?

  3. gavinsdad Says:

    ^@phoamm – i wonder if they dont sell the same # as seats knowing that “illegals” make their way down to the floor and they dont want folks passing out from crowding?


  4. Robear Says:

    Phish: leading the push for GA seating! Look at all the venues this summer that removed seats in favor of a GA pit?

    They love us.

    Gen adm MSG floor would help fill my soul hole

  7. Bad Nirvana Cover Band Says:

    If true, MSG will gain major cool points. Been dreaming of this since 1998.

  8. Bad Nirvana Cover Band Says:

    Lololol @ Sumodie !!!

  9. sumodie Says:

    If true about the gen adm msg floor, wonder if it means they’re becoming a lil more flexible due to competition from the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn

  10. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    that ‘soul hole’ business has this classic running through my head.

    and I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t at one time thought it would be a perfect harpua cover tune. actually, I still think that.

  11. halcyon Says:

    I can get behind seeing Phish at Barclay’s Center

  12. kayatosh Says:

    find myself running through LBC 8.15.12 from the top. great show. an especially cool cities.

  13. plord Says:

    I always thought Stonehendge would be the best Spinal Tap cover to drop in a Harpua. The celtic jig part plays to the band’s bluegrass strengths, and the rest of the tune is within Fishman’s vocal abilities.

    Plus you know Kuroda could draw the stones with lights.

    Maybe skip the dwarf though.

    “I can get behind seeing Phish at __________________”

    Loved the LBC show. Good times. Worth every penny. Bitched a while, and have a nasty AMEX to show for it, but good times.

    Just returning the phone today that I had to buy after jumping into the hotel pool with my old iPhone in my pocket.

  15. Guyute711 Says:

    Soul hole makes me think of this.

  16. lumpyhead Says:

    ^ yeah I would love a return to long beach.

    also bill graham.

  17. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    LBC was great venue!

    Also the closest one in 3.0 to my house

  18. BingosBrother Says:

    I think we are twins G7. all I could think of too. So awesome.

  19. phoammhead Says:


    that would be nice to think that management/policy makers would care enough to think about our well being, but i’m skeptical

  20. SillyWilly Says:

    I was actually going to write that, too, phoamm

    but like gdad said: speculation.

  21. kayatosh Says:

    are bananas good for your cock? can’t help but notice the shape.

  22. Dr Pronoia Says:

    Barclays was great on Saturday for Jigga man

    A venue the boys HAVE to play

  23. Dr Pronoia Says:

    And I say that even as someone who could somersault home from MSG

  24. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    dr. p, I’m still waiting on kangfirmation on those stinky brown butter rice krispy treats, yo. give us the deets!
