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!

    Tycho at Red Rocks did not disappoint. If you get a chance, catch them. Tight show and excellent visuals on the screens. Trance groove? Yes please.

    We are all crystals.

    TotD had some funny infinity ar banter regarding crystals.

    ‘Purple guy trying to get jewelry. ‘ lol jewelry.

    I def thought they nailed it. Thane vs Strange magic war, and Guardians vs Spidey&Starks were some good fan candy.

    Watch T’Challa be the pied piper for all the souls that got dusted. He’s already got practice navigating the spirit realm. For the characters that we’ll find in the soul realm. The Panther has your back.

    And Starks and Cap will probably have to sacrifice themselves to help somehow.

    Tycho at RR sounds like a heavenly match

    Josh Brolin is also the bad guy in Deadpool 2. Haven’t made time to catch either superflick, esp since streaming from home is so easy & high qual

    As a kid.. Thanos and Cable both happened to be 2 of the most interesting characters to me. And def the fav 2 ‘villians’.

  10. BingosBrother Says:

    Cable is getting his own film, I believe.

  11. BingosBrother Says:

    Cool article. Thanks TOTD.


  12. Dusty Says:

    so time changes are weird, but dealing with places that do 30min or 45min changes is even weird. Especially in the future.

  13. Sex&City Says:

    Jonacho… phantogram killed it. I thought Tycho took a back seat. Enjoyed both of course.

  14. BingosBrother Says:
