Phish Thoughts: The Book

> Check out this SPAC preview interview I did with The Daily Gazette of Schenectady, New York.

By Brian McElhiney

Phish are really on a roll this summer. In fact, the shows the Vermont-based jam band has performed so far represent the best of the now four-year reunion era, according to San Francisco-based journalist, Dave Calarco. “They came out this summer really with a purpose, it seems,” Calarco said from Phish’s recent tour stop in Carmel, Ind. “The last time they played, which was the New Years’ run at MSG [Madison Square Garden in New York City], the shows seemed somewhat lackluster…” READ ON!

> Here’s a book review of Phish Thoughts in Nug Magazine.

By Marco Alvarez 

I first heard the American rock band Phish back in ‘03 through my college roommate who studied music and played the sax. There would often be music playing in our apartment being that he was a saxophonist, and my other roommate, a guitarist. I never learned to play an instrument myself, but I always appreciated hearing the sound of my friends jamming out or the sound of their favorite artists blanketing over the place with their charm.

    Sand had a second jam

  10. BrandonKayda Says:

    So, I heard a minute of Carini jam, followed by a jam about 2mins ago, now Suzy.

    Seems like set was hot, no? Don’t know a thing about setlist.

  11. RoosterPizza Says:

    I wish I could get rooster’d. No bane and no quality brew. Just straight rocking the shochu these days…

  12. jdub Says:

    Been a fantastic set from my seat/dance floor. That Sally>Ghost took me to another planet. Have to collect myself for a moment and Suzy seems like a nice landing spot.

  13. MrCompletely Says:

    got too songy in the middle of the set @bk but Sally > Ghost was sick open jamming with copious weirdness

  14. MiA Says:

    just kidding about that….

    how tough is mail?

  15. Lycanthropist Says:

    for me the Sneaky Ghost was far better then the Carini Sand.

    Yeah, interesting to get the heat at the end. Nice little curve ball from the boys. Keep us guessing. Half of us were about to jump off a cliff after Roses was not jammed and then PYITE! Love that they are constantly surprising us this year. Sally>Ghost was a choice call.

  18. jdub Says:

    This is exactly how they did NOT end JB2

  19. MiA Says:

    they are spilling all their proverbial candy

  20. marcoesq Says:

    nice having the O’s on a little west coast run, sweet Ghosts and baseball

  21. jdub Says:

    Golden Age has got everyone clapping now.

  22. tela'smuff Says:

    I refuse to live in a world where Roses and PYITE are spongy. 😉

  23. MrCompletely Says:

    Sneaky Ghost, that’s it

  24. steamer Says:

    does this show rival the best of the midwest? a team of rivals it is

  25. MrCompletely Says:

    the evolutionary songy, songy 2.0
