Phish…in 3D!

First Avatar, then Alice In Wonderland, and now…Phish in 3D coming soon to a theatre near you! Hopping on the coattails of the newest burst in cinematic technology, Phish, in conjunction with AEG Live and Action 3D, are releasing a feature length movie in April, with footage filmed at laset year’s Festival 8. Armed with 3D glasses, legions of fans will be able to go see Phish at the movies and check out what all the movie buzz was about back at Indio – all before the start of summer tour!

This will be the band’s first professionally “finished” cinematic concert feature, though they did simulcast Coney Island’s tour opener in 2004 and Coventry’s “career-ending” weekend. The band released the former show in the DVD package “Live in Brooklyn,” while Coventry has yet to be re-viewed – by anyone. No information has been released as to what footage the movie will contain. One might surmise the band’s revered take on The Rolling Stones’ “Exile on Main Street” might comprise the substance of the film, but with the title Phish 3D, one has to believe some original material will be included.

With a concert grounds bursting in psychedelic eye-candy, Indio will be the perfect site to return to in three-dimensions. Perhaps Burble will float into the theatre during “Hood”? Maybe flaming torches will encircle the audience for “Fluffhead,” “Mike’s” or “Reprise?” The possibilities are certainly there for a more-than-engaging Friday night at the movies. Musically speaking, the “Wolfman’s > Piper > Joy” would make a great segment from the 30th, while any of November 1st final set’s would provide explosive footage. Will the the acoustic set will be included? At this point, there are more questions than answers.

The band has released strangely little information on this project that will debut next month, still including no mention of the movie on After no marketing whatsoever, and a website that is yet to go live, a trailer has been added to the previews of “Alice In Wonderland,” Tim Burton’s 3D offering that released this past weekend. With no official release date announced, we can expect the movie to drop nationally sometime in April, providing a life-like look back at the most blissful weekend of 2009. Where the film will be playing will be largely determined on available technology. From

Theater owners are rushing to expand the number of 3-D equipped cinemas to accommodate more than 16 3-D films scheduled for release this year, including Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland,” which opened today, according to Box-Office.

There were 3,659 screens in the U.S. and Canada equipped with 3-D projectors as of Jan. 5, according to the National Association of Theatre Owners.

Here is a 3D theatre locator used for recent releases thanks to Hopefully one will pop up in your vicinity.

This relatively unannounced surprise will serve as a small treat to tide everyone over to summer tour. So get out your ganja butter popcorn and whatever other treats you might want for this trip down memory lane, because come April, Phish is going to the movies.

Easing into the week with some gooey summer funk from Barcelona ’98, this “Halley’s” leads into a preview of “First Tube” long before it hit the Phish stage. This little-known gem comes from the last night of Europe ’98.

  1. Lycanthropist Says:

    thank you chef

    it felt good to knock that one out with no problem after the hell i had with the last cake

  2. ChefBradford Says:

    Really man, that stuff is awesome. I can do what I do, but baking something like that is waaay out of my league. I baked a cake for a GF once, it was a (small) disaster. It certainly wasn’t pretty

    I used to help my mom bake (cookies and breads) for the holidays

    Never really picked anything up, I guess

    Honestly, I fell into the kitchen racket by accident, never got out

  3. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    lmao lycan, you didn’t tell me about throwing that shit off the balcony, haha….i was tempering chocolate last week and smashed my yardstick on the floor in the bakeshop. It’s forever crookeder than a dog’s dick, but atleast now it has some character.

  4. Lycanthropist Says:

    well i am really still learning

    i am getting the decorating part down

    but i still need a lot of work on my actual baking technique.

    that is just a display cake so it doesn’t necessarily have to taste good, just had to look good.

    sculpture is a long way from baking 🙂

    but i am learnig, and also with a little help from a fellow BBer! thanks Ryan

  5. Lycanthropist Says:

    yeh Uncle Eb

    it was after the cake had served its purpose, so i was free to do what i wanted with it.. so we set it up and it fell three strories to a concrete death. IT was pretty awesome

  6. ChefBradford Says:

    I’m good with desserts that don’t have to look good, bread pudding, pecan pie

    I fuzzily recall making a Greek dessert in 8th grade for a school project (I think we were reading the Illiad or the Odyssey). I don’t remember what it was, but it came out pretty well

  7. Lycanthropist Says:


  8. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    All this talk about 8 lately has me revisiting some of the music, most of which i haven’t gone back to with the exception of the acoustic set. So many great memories that weekend. Got to meet Robear and Marshall, and missed the first minute or so of Tweezer on the last night because i was running from the outdoor theater after watching A-Rod hit a double or something to seal the deal on the series…good times.

  9. ChefBradford Says:

    Nah, I know it wasn’t baklava. Literally, the only thing I remember about that dessert was that it included clove

  10. Lycanthropist Says:

    we video taped it, trying to get my employee to upload it to YouTube may prove difficult though.

  11. ChefBradford Says:

    Okay, a few more months, and then hopefully I can get: a new computer, one or two external HDs, and a new iPod. Then I can really catch up around here

  12. Lycanthropist Says:

    and @chef

    FWIW we could probably make the CF shows a free ride for ya…

  13. ChefBradford Says:

    You video taped me NOT making baklava? That’s fucking impressive

  14. Lycanthropist Says:


    yeh i have my very own hot tub time machine

  15. ChefBradford Says:

    As said, I really do appreciate it, Lycan, but it’s more a matter of my home bills (rent, car, insur, etc)

    I def plan on making at least one show of that run. I’d (actually, honestly) rather catch a TSU or CF show than the Martin show (I enjoy MMW/etc, but not overly familiar), but I’ll see what I can do

  16. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    i just saw MMW here last weekend, made me come home and look at my instrument in a whole different way. I love the intimacy of smaller shows sometimes….i’d much rather get up front and watch, i can boogie anytime at home in the living room

  17. ChefBradford Says:

    Fuck man, it’s getting weird. We have a lot in common. 6/22/00 is only the beginning

    I just saw a commercial for that movie

  18. Lycanthropist Says:

    yeh not to mention the weird Let the Right One in coincidence.

    and there were a few other things if i remember

  19. neemor Says:

    Alright guys, see y’all in the morning.

    I’ll just pull a Mitch and leave you with the following advice:

  20. ChefBradford Says:

    Yeah, I can’t pinpoint them, but there were other things

    It’s all good though. Pretty great, actually

    the Martin show aside, I WILL catch TSU and/or CF again at least once this year, preferably…well, preferably as many times as possible.

    And I’ll try to check up on more of the archived shows

    Unfortunately, it’s looking like I’ll have to buy a new iPod before I can load anything new. Old one is being…stupid, to say the least

  21. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    10.31.09 best suzy EVER

  22. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    ahhh i wanna see mmw SO badly. they are my second favorite band, to phish. love the shows they played with trey too.

  23. Uncle Ebeneezer Says:

    I saw John medeski with Trey band in either 2001 or 2002, didn’t even know who he was at that point.

  24. ChefBradford Says:

    Listened to some Smashing Pumpkins at work tonight. I know it’ll never happen, but I think a fully explored “Rhinoceros” would be divine

    Then again, Phish + summer (or any) tour = divine, so…

    Although, Phish + any tour + a stop or two in the deep South would = …divine squared?

  25. swamp gravy Says:

    would to see 8.17.93 Kansas City go up on the archive. All time versions of Fluff and FEFY.

    Behind that…8.7.93 Darien and 8.21 Salt Lake.
