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!

    I think one can still get Hampton fridays and Sundays through ticketmaster. 75 clams.

    as much as i crave a Phish show right now, laziness, guilt, and frugality will probably win out. Secret Fall Tower Theater show, please!

    Sup bitches. What’d I miss?

    Another magical Wknd @ Bernie’s on the S Platte. Didn’t catch that many fish (Bear should be better @ catching fish) but then again not too many fish were caught overall. Deckers is a fickle mistress. Even w/ a guide. Buddy bought us a full day that only resulted in 1 & 2 netted for myself & him respectively although he did have 4-5 nice fish on that got off. We both missed a bunch me thinks. Subtle takes; gotta be quick on the draw ie setting the hook. Pressure drop’d; those fish get tons of pressure so your presentation has to be ‘just exactly perfect’ & sometimes they’re just not that active. Explored Cheesman Canyon for the 1st time which is pretty fucking amazeballs & my buddy Glenn caught the biggest brown trout of his life on the Dream Stream; Cheesman & Dream different sections of the S Platte. Now my buddies taught me everything they know about fly fishin but you what I found out? Fly fishin is tough! stapes was missed madly. As was Untzy who’s snubbed us now 2 yrs running. Listen here tall guy flat brim glasses we’re booking Bernie’s again next yr over Columbus Day wknd. I’d appreciate it very much if you could pls put that on your calendar & join us & wait to winterize your trailer until aft that wknd so you can bring it down for addtl sleeping quarters. Bc Mids You this wknd too.
