Weekend Nuggets: Looking Forward Backwards


6.16.09 (B. Kisida)

While we prepare for a seemingly ultimate Phish experience, with rumored hallucinatory art/tech installations like never seen before at a Phish fest – and a Halloween album mystery yet to be solved – everyone is also scampering for Fall tickets, which went on sale yesterday and today. This weekend, let’s take a look forward at two of the New York venues Phish will play this Fall by traveling back to stellar shows in these buildings. Featured this weekend are 12.13.97 – the tour-ending blowout at Knickerbocker Arena in Albany, NY, and 11.4.94 at Onondaga War Memorial in Syracuse, NY – the only other show Phish has played there. With a whole lot of new music right around the corner, here are a few classics from the past.
