1229 – A Book Signing and Afterparty

Book Cover (Masthay)

This year’s highly anticipated New Year’s Run represents more than just another four Phish shows. Not only will MSG be the culmination of the band’s progression from 2009 to now—a triumphant re-growth process that has landed them in a Golden Age—it will also be a celebration of the joy that permeates the Phish community again—a community dispersed by Coventry, divided in their confidence when the band returned, and finally united by the musical lightning of 2011. And now we have four days in New York City to party!

On December 29th, in the spirit of the season and in conjunction with the release of Mr. Miner’s Phish Thoughts: An Anthology By a Fan For the Fans, I, personally, invite one and all to “1229: A Book Signing and After-Party.” Here are the details!



The Irish Times – 254 W 31st St. (b/w 7th and 8th Ave)

Less than 1 block from MSG!

The Book Signing: 4 pm – 6 pm

Once you’ve settled into the city for a day, come on down to The Irish Times—one of the nicest bars in The Garden’s vicinity—to celebrate the release of Mr. Miner’s Phish Thoughts! Grab a pre-show drink in the shadow of The Garden, check out the new book and purchase one if you’d like. I will have a table set up for book signing and for anyone who just wants to say hello. (Obviously, no purchase is necessary to come and hang out!) In addition, a large video screen will feature a hand-picked “Four-Song Set” DVD highlight reel for enjoyment during the pre-game festivities. This will be a great place to meet-up with friends and get ready for another installment of Phish: December 29th.  Since nobody wants to tote a hardcover book to MSG, a “book check” service will be provided to ensure the safety of all books during the Phish show. Then, once the encore is over, come on back to The Irish Times for more fun!

The Afterparty: Post-show – 3 am – FREE!

After the show’s final notes, don’t worry about grabbing a cab, come back across the street to The Irish Times for a post-show party! Without skipping a beat, Coltrane and Friends (funk, nu-disco, re-edit) will keep the grooves going for hours—and everyone is invited free of charge! With two floors, booths to sit and plenty of room in the bar, there will be ample to space to dance or chill, whichever your post-show selves prefer. Come and celebrate all that we, as a community, have to rejoice over at the end of an amazing year! Books will also be for sale throughout the after-party.

Check out some of  Coltrane’s mixes here!

I hope to see many of you on the 29th! Stay tuned for a Facebook event page. If there are any questions, email at mrminer@phishthoughts.com.

    Bb def needs it own pet bot

  21. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    trick or treating postponed up here, some towns are even canceling it. downed power lines, icy walkways, and kids running around costumed and hopped up on sugar is apparently not a desirable combination for the safety police.

  22. alf Says:

    anyone out there hiring? i need a career change

    looking forward to the book signing miner, should be quite the party

    peace butter

    My last interaction with my friend was one that I made an effort to jump out of my car and shoot the shit with her for 5 min. That 5 minutes I made to socialize with her was it. The last time.

    Build bridges with people, reach out, connect

  25. Guyute711 Says:

    Indio was a lifetime ago but I did wear my costume from the festi over to Duder’s the other night. Makisupa police was on the scene confiscating Leo’s wings.
