Early 3.0 Playlists: 2009-2011

Red Rocks – 7.31.09 (Graham Lucas)

About a month ago, a friend of mine who missed the first three-plus years of 3.0 was saying how Phish wasn’t very musically proficient in these years. I begged to differ. First, I started listing great stuff from each year in a group text, but then I decided to show him instead of tell. With the incredibly useful LivePhish app, I created extended playlists of the most relevant jams from these years. In addition to sharing them with some friends, I figured I’d share them with anyone and everyone who’d want to listen as a reminder of how exciting these years actually were. I find that 2009, 2010 and 2011 get a bad rap. Though the band was less consistent during this early comeback era, they did produce quite a bit of good music.

These playlists got quite long, so I most often included only the songs that had the jams and not the come down songs, so some tracks have abrupt endings, but in the end this doesn’t prove too obtrusive. If you have the LivePhish app, these links will open the playlists in your app. Enjoy!

  12. phlorida phan Says:

    6 years BK?!?!?! Band only a smidge better 😉

  13. phlorida phan Says:

    I’m still searching for this MMW with DJ Logic show I heard a while back. Started out with full band jam, then logic comes out and does a 1 on 1 jam with each MMW to get to know each other like.

  14. vapebraham Says:

    Logic with MMW in ’99 = straight science. i do not know of the show of which u speak. let me know when u find it. so many serious MMW treats out there.

  15. little umbrellas Says:

    Phlo. Warfield during the Dropper tour had Logic and KD. Sick show.

  16. little umbrellas Says:

    Sorry to Bother You is doing suuuuper well at the Inde box office. Lookin to be a million dollar picture on a teeny budget.

    Folks are calling it Get Out on acid.

    Like comedy alt reality.

    Same actor from the spacey sideman in Atalanta and he’s in Get Out too as the vessel guy.

    Soooo stoked for Boots.
    And so fun to see my friends involved and in general Oakland be hella lit up this film. Homie James and Ryan have their art and music in there.

    Go peep the thing friends it’s rad and playing Nationally.

    Cool to hear that your friends worked on the film!

    Who knew Estonian Psych Funk was a thang? Check out the Misha Panfilov Sound Combo on bandcamp. I was bumping his album En Route yesterday:
