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!

    If the games can absorb whatever rain heads there, that is.

  9. Stoney Case Says:

    2018 FriDicks = sonic sorcery

    2017 FriDicks = take bakers dozen crumbs and spread it round

  10. MrCompletely Says:

    good I was hoping Stoney would bring his dicks trolling over here into the umbrella zone for a serious cage match

  11. MrCompletely Says:

    LU, put both Dicks friday shows in your chromatograph or whatever and tell us the science

  12. MrCompletely Says:

    hot take of the day:

    Rahsaan Roland Kirk >>> Sun Ra

    I stand behind it

  13. MrCompletely Says:

    of course in reality (or surreality) they are allies not competitors but to me Kirk is headiest of the high priests of the Church of Outness

  14. Stoney Case Says:

    C, it’s tough because even after all these years, most of the heads can’t decipher “great” from “length” and “lasting merit” from “personal experience”

    I don’t even know if Snow ever found his hot cocoa, SMDH!!

    If Twiddle starts dropping 20 minute live jams, this group is done

  15. MrCompletely Says:

    I haven’t spun that Ribot jawn yet. Been bingeing the fuck out of Kirk and a bunch of other back catalog stuff. Big shocker, Shabaka’s radio show is amazing:


    new Juana Molina is coming

    This Shabazz offshoot project has a preliminary rating of Heady, possibly Heady As Fuck


  16. MrCompletely Says:

    def Stoney, you personally are immune to show experience bias though, we all know that

  17. theBaker Says:

    Literally on the (zero) 0 Line to rendezvous w/Miranda…I could care less if that lil Slut Carrie Bradshaw joins-us–>but I’m PRAYING that that Kim Catrell-character swings by fir a few double-martinis!¡!

  18. Jerome Garcia Says:

    MrC knows. RRK fo lyphe! The Case of the 3 Sided Dream in Audio Color.

    If yuns don’t know edify thyself!!!

  19. dorn76 Says:

    You know what shows REALLY sucked?


    But the weekend will always be remembered as one of my finest Phish experiences.

    Finally, someone that gets ME!

  21. MrCompletely Says:

    Spot has many flaws but then I go on a deep dive of someone like Kirk and they just have album after album after album

  22. Stoney Case Says:

    My mountain woook grower friend went to a party that Dan Bilzerian threw last night with his bosses.

    The amount of blow and insta babes present has me really feeling left out this morning. I should have taken a job with a big player in the industry rather than trying to carve own niche! I could have been at that party!!! It’s like the most expensive vacation party house you can rent in California I guess. Guards with AK’s. Rappers, insta models, the works.

    On one hand, I hate these outside culture vultures. On the other hand, me wants to rip lines off these girls backsides.


  23. Stoney Case Says:

    if y’all on IG, give my bro SouthernHumboldt_Terp_Farm a follow and peep his story

  24. Stoney Case Says:

    being a long time humboldt cat, he said he’s never been around so much talent, with so few dudes around. The literal opposite of a mountain party. I can’t even

    Stoney is wrong
