Twenty Years Later: Japan 2000

Japan 2000 Poster

This week marks the 20th anniversary of Japan 2000—one of my favorite Phish runs of all time. My friend, Myke Menio—aka @LawnMemo—invited me onto his Daily Soundcheck podcast to talk about these incredible shows. We will be recording five episodes. The first episode just went live and is linked below. I will add the new links to each episode onto this post as they go live. Hope you enjoy!

    Well well. Chalk on blackboard still alive! Thanks for the post miner. Podcasts been helping to ward off Some unfortunately newly experienced panic attacks on the way to work. Seriously looking into digging in here!

    I wandered about here while fortunate enough to be schooled by this 95 deer creek show via dinner and a movie

    May never be the same. Realize more than ever why y’all vets are so god damn cranky all the time. What a time to be alive in the Phish world. feeling fortunate to appreciate the foundation. What was, what has been, can be, and will be. Much like the times. Always look forward and never forget the past…..

    Meanwhile that Bowie gave me anxiety and release like never before. The yem, unworldly. Acoustic army? All on guitar again please!!! On to possum now.

    Miss y’all. deepest wishes, best regards, and sparkles where you can find em. They are there. I promise.

    Wow I miss this platform. The days when we could type away on our keyboards instead of our phones. Oh well. At least Signal crashes every other time I load it and if there’s more than 50 new messages it crashes every time.

    Thank you, Mr Miner.
    I miss this place, too. I learned a lot here, mostly about music, but also about an incredibly diverse list of other good stuff, too. And it was a great time killer (waster?), too. And often humorous.
