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!

    Just dropping in to say that this impromptu lemonade-making trip was the perfect audible. I was lashed by an errant dread within an hour of arriving at some gnarly dead fam bar across from my hotel…

    And to publicly declare that the BB’s own Sex is an incredibly kind and generous Denver fun sherpa. I have a recs list as long as my arm and my critical reasoning skills are taking a MAMMOTH hit out in legal country. Thanks dude!

    Any Chicago area crew looking for something to wash the taste of Curseball off the pallet, come check out Half Acre’s Big North 3 today. Always the best party of summer, we have 65+ beers pouring (many onkybavailabe at this event), food, bands, hi jinx, tomfoolery, vibes and more beer. I’m running the volunteer crew this time, so it’s gonna get weird Af. Weathernlooking good ans we have drinkable water taboot. Let’s hang.

    HTHT, please take your time and mourn the situation anyway that you need to. You are a more compassionate, thoughtful, and emotionally open person than most of us. You don’t have to react like everyone else. You do you. You’re a feeler. Not your job to stop those emotions. Let them flow so you’re ready for the next challenge.
