Weekend Nuggets: Laguna Seca Daze


Phish LagunaAs we prepare for Indio’s Festival 8 blowout, this weekend we take look back at Laguna Seca Daze, a multi-band California festival Phish headlined 15 years ago. These shows in Monterey followed up three outstanding nights at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre, and featured outstanding playing throughout. The first night boasts the hearty chunk of “Tweezer > Lifeboy, Reba” in the middle of the second set, and a Les Claypool sit-in for “You Enjoy Myself.” The second night contained in improvisational highlights in “Bowie,”Split” and “Antelope.” Enjoy the weekend, Indio is less than a month away!
