    leaving off that Wedge jam is pretty fun, and classic retaliatory trolling. or not. either way, it’s funny.


    ^this is great

  2. Kaveh Says:

    Gonna give 07.13 a top to bottom treatment this AM.

    What one calls search I call mastery. Those 17min are fantastic

    Mann Fuego is a real live bear and it will tear your head off.

  5. phoammhead Says:

    the south is hot, Flesh . . . so, i’m sure that will translate!


  6. vapebraham Says:

    tela’s: that old man stole my dance moves.

    7.20 d/led. paid full price for the flacs – dick punch. but now about to spin it. w/ weezo.

  7. Kaveh Says:


    love the Reba chat that goes up and then Trey gives them what they want.

  8. btb Says:

    MannFuego’d – ‘effortless’ four headed monster. Why time signature when you can float through space?

  9. gavinsdad Says:

    Plan your tourdates around my tourdates obvs.

  10. tela's_muff Says:

    so assuming i win tickets for SF, i’m taking the wife with me. any recs on where we should stay to get the most out of the day. we’ve never been. worth staying near venue?

  11. Calpain Says:

    Nice work Miner. Haven’t listened to anything past Randall’s.

    On train to meet @Roosterpizza en route to Charlotte. Sipping a round guys pale ale fermented w all Brett. Sour pale’d. Kaya’d.

    Have respun mann fuego only once. In person there was very little crowd connection but a lot of ideas happening on stage.

  12. Kaveh Says:

    @tela: No you don’t need to stay near the venue. You can stay anywhere in town, even down by the Wharf and walk if you need to. The neighborhood that the venue is in, isn’t the greatest.

  13. Calpain Says:

    Also, already booked flights for night 1 in Vegas. No hotel room Rollin wook style then visiting friends in LA. Ohh what a time to be a young wannabe phishie

  14. phoammhead Says:

    trey’s tired old bones to warm up in the south, yo

  15. vapebraham Says:

    get some, homie. train to charlotte sounds like the right way. peace.

  16. gavinsdad Says:

    And depending on ur #ballerstatus u might look into the magnolia @telas but @kaveh is basically right. Cabs are cabs and there are free transfers on the muni buses. Don’t forget about beers at the Toronado, definitely not in a hood u wanna stay in tho.

  17. vapebraham Says:

    ^^^ woops. train to the roopizza en route to charlotte. gotcha.

    if i had any foresight, i’d be en route too. need more live phish.

  18. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    Gdad you hitting any fall?

  19. marcoesq Says:

    Tell that RoosterPizza to bone up for the weekend. We’ll be seeing that cat Sat and Sun

  20. dorn76 Says:

    Just posed that same query re: SF on Twitter to our resident Golden hater.

  21. RicksFork Says:

    @Kaveh, from the vid I watched I’m pretty sure they were actually chanting Tela and Trey thougth it was Reba. He thought he was giving them what they wanted…still awesome though.

  22. IrieWalton Says:

    SF Tip: Check out vrbo.com or airbnb.com as oftentimes you can rent an entire apartment with a full kitchen for cheaper than a 200 sq. foot hotel room. I would recommend the North Beach ‘hood (SF’s Littly Italy), which is where we stayed last time, full of great cafes and pizza, and you’re just a 10-minute walk from the Wharf.

  23. ren2.0 Says:

    Spent yesterday camping in the Shennendoah Valley. On to Blowing Rock NC today via the Blue Mountain

    We keep it rollin

  24. bob dylan Says:

    Gdad meant the BGCA is def not a hood to stay in. You can very well stay within walking distance to toronado. (The way I read it the 2 ideas were one sentence)

    Vape, C was telling you to download the 24 bit and convert. You punched your own dick.

  25. Kaveh Says:

    @RF: Not to argue here: it is a Reba chant, as he thanks the crowd for the suggestion after the song as well.
