This menacing version descended upon Blossom, leaving many wide-eyed fans wondering what had just happened.

  5. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Kaveh- not to confuse you anymore, but…. Spac is in a beautiful state park with a great little town. If you can get a bike ( which i know you enjoy) you could tear shit up around there… just a thought.

    ^ Pretty much always does. 🙂

  8. lumpyhead Says:

    my 2nd venture, if the fates allow it, will be hitting whatever I can of the dc/alpine run. preferably alpine.

  9. Kaveh Says:

    Thanks for the thoughts so far..keep them coming and we’ll see what happens.

    Just saw the stat that every 4 year player for Tom Izzo has made the final four. Impressive.

    @biz,

    I don’t even build the fire anymore, grilling the meat is out of the question. Who’s the real winner there? Whatevs, as long as she doesn’t touch my stereo idgaf

  15. lumpyhead Says:

    also it’s the de facto festi so it’s gonna be a total party.

    Agreed

    SPAC is both a 3-pack and the tour closer -the boys will surely unleash IT at these shows

    The town & surrounding region are pretty sweet, esp if one is looking to impress one’s (not-that-into-Phish) partner

  17. Mr.Miner Says:

    no gorge

  18. lumpyhead Says:

    ‘no gorge’

    nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  19. Mr.Miner Says:

    charlotte, raleigh, and or atlanta could fit between bonaroo and AC

  20. lumpyhead Says:

    are you implying that there’s not so much a leg 2? more like a rather large leg 1 and then bill graham and dicks?

    or there is a leg 2 between bill graham and dicks?

  21. joe Says:

    “or there is a leg 2 between bill graham and dicks?”

    I would think Dick’s would be between the 2 legs, but that might just be me…

    Badumpshhhhhhh

  24. Mr. Palmer Says:
