audio sample is interesting! Two vocalists for sure - but Celisse also plays guitar and it sounds like two guitars below!!! Could be really fucking cool!

Woah. This is interesting. Fish is a GIGANTIC x-factor in the mix here.

Itís not just TAB w/ Fishman as a replacement drummer. It becomes an entirely different band w/ his precense, IMO. Obviously, they thought the same....

Definitely excited to hear this.... Iíve always liked Rayís playing and it should be interesting how Fishman approaches the material with such a polar opposite bass player than Gordo.

We can solve this. Which one(s) you looking for? I can certainly try to grab more during the regular onsale if you need help. Between me and my BIL Kevin, we grabbed 3 pairs for Boston and may have an extra or two if we strike out...

Note to future self: you told your wife about getting tix for these shows tonight, so she canít say you never told her.  8-)

two more dates added - a night at each Greek - (LA and Berkeley). Gives me hope that maybe a Jazzfest date will be added.

I'd count the Hampton Reunion shows as a 'spring tour'. They were only 1 show shy of being as long as the Island Tour in '98.

a. It's not a tour if they don't, you know, "tour" from venue to venue. Have you ever heard anyone call NYE a tour? Didn't think so.

b. Technically March 6-8 is still winter

Yes, technically, I believe "tour" would indicate a movement from one venue to another, even if it's just one move and two venues, that'd be valid. (see: island tour). NYE are not a tour. Mexico is not a tour. Hampton come back shows are not a tour. Bakers Dozen...not a tour. Those I'd just call "runs". Like the New Years run, or the Bakers Dozen run...etc.

This guy makes a lot of sense  :lol:

The work conference seems like a legit excuse to me. I'd buy it. Plus, she's forgiving. You should go.

Locked and loaded for the Greek Berkeley on 4/20.  Stoked!


oh yeah? **checks kayak**

$200 roundtrip and free place to stay so I pulled the trigger.  It's not even sold out either.  Guessing tix will be peanuts as it gets closer.


nice, yeah 135 round trip from Denver. Checking on lodging now.

My wife would divorce me if I pulled the trigger on this trip - seriously. I leave the following Wednesday for 2 weeks of Jazzfest without her.

You should probably take a few days downtime in the Bay Area to unwind.

There are usually a couple of honorary Jews (well, one and a half actually).  It's mostly family (grandparents, great grandparent etc.) but it might be smart to have more Jews.  In this day and age of #metoo and all that crap, you can get skewered if your event isn't diverse lol.

I think the risk makes me feel alive. Change is the one thing you can count on. Everything is turning and changing all the time. Thereís a lot of music tours on the road now that are from, like, Seventies nostalgia? A lot. And thatís great. And yet, itís over. I mean, I want to hear King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, which is all I listen to now. Iím just obsessed with these guys. I mean, they put out five albums last year and theyíre cool. Iíd rather hear something new. I feel blessed that the fact that so much of what Phish does is improvised means thatís built into our whole thing. Ever night is going to become new.

Quote
Lately, youíve been doing solo acoustic tours, Phish, TAB and now Ghosts of the Forest. What drives you?
I think the risk makes me feel alive. Change is the one thing you can count on. Everything is turning and changing all the time. Thereís a lot of music tours on the road now that are from, like, Seventies nostalgia? A lot. And thatís great. And yet, itís over. I mean, I want to hear King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, which is all I listen to now. Iím just obsessed with these guys. I mean, they put out five albums last year and theyíre cool. Iíd rather hear something new. I feel blessed that the fact that so much of what Phish does is improvised means thatís built into our whole thing. Ever night is going to become new.

All he listens to now is King Gizzard?   :crazy: :rawk: :banana:


That's fuckin' AWESOME!! Trey and I are in the same boat!

I thought you only listened to Greta Van Skeet Skeet?

I'd say it's about 50/25/25 right now, Gizz/Phish/GvF.

I've been listening a fair bit.  Heard the stream last night and wasn't feeling it too much.  Watched a vid this morning (that scotty posted) and liked it a little more.  They put last night's show on LP and I listened to the first 5 songs before switching over the tube cardioids off of etree.  It sounds so good.  Personally, I am glad I am getting familiar with these songs.  I like being familiar with material.  Plus I'll know when to go to the bathroom lol.  But ser, upon relisten it keeps growing on me more and more.  That said, going in with fresh ears is a great thing too.  But I'm way past that.  It's only going to get better too.  The difference between the first ever TAB show in '99 and the last one of the tour is gargantuan.

Vibes to those that have lost someone close and are finding this tour and album cathartic.

My thoughts on Saturday night were:

50% Phish + 66% TAB = 150% Fun

I enjoyed it thoroughly, and can't wait to give the show and this album another listen. Also, first time at the Anthem in DC and it is a beautiful venue, and I'm looking forward to seeing more shows there in the future, preferably not during the Cherry Blossom Festival when the area was INSANELY crowded.
Title: Re: Ghosts of the Forest Spring 2019 Tour
Post by: susep on April 10, 2019, 09:33:28 AM
Must say the Portland show has been in high rotation.  Impressive debut.  Makes me think about other "debut" shows in Trey's storied career. 
Knowing the back story, GOTF is a capsulation of Trey and his best friend Chris.  The arc consists of existential musings, memories and meditations if you will, as if walking through a forest or hiking trail.  From beautiful vistas to dark caves and aquatic areas in between, a full range of emotions and ecosystems, Chris and Trey immersed. 
Some of my favorites so far:

Intro>
Ghosts of the Forest
Drift While You're Sleeping
Sightless Escape
There's a Path Above
Beneath a Sea of Stars Parts 1 + 2 + 3
Ruby Waves
Wider

Musically the band is tight, well rehearsed.  Ray in particular plays very strong as does Fish.  Really no weaknesses.  Pretty much every song has something to offer.  Halfway Home features some of Trey's best use of vibrato in a very long time.  Visually impressive(I've only seen pics) w/ Jennifer and Celisse up front. 
Trey's best solo project yet.

I was about 10 rows in front of SF, left after the encore and thought the show was awesome.  I liked it better than Portland, but that might just have to do with being closer and having better sound.  I also was not nearly as high as Portland.

Aside from the new songs/new sound, two new things I really like are LED Trey lights and Trey's aggressive downward power slide.

Quote
Trey produced the album and tapped Vance Powell to mix and engineer the LP. At one point, Powell went outside of The Barn with a recording rig and taped 45 minutes of ambient sound from the Vermont hillside. Vance and Trey layered elements of those sounds within Ghosts Of The Forest.

I dig it too. I think Long Lines is the sappiest Trey song that I absolutely love. It brings tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. Such a wonderful composition!  Especially after reading what Trey said about the last days of his friend Chris's life and how some of the moments he mentioned are lines in the song. This is a man who misses his best friend.

Also...I hate to be a stickler here.... but isn't "Stumble Into Light" just maayyybbee a liiittllleee too close to "Pigtail" .... just maybe? hmmmm.... the "micro-jam" was pretty slick though....

But really... overall... Some good stuff... some.... 'same-ol-same-ol' stuff...... Lots to digest. As a songwriter myself, it's just mindblowing to me the amount of material Trey puts out.  The guy is a creative machine.

I wonder what will get brought to Phish...

I'd like to see Phish tackle The Green Truth, About To Run and/or Halfway Home. Imagine the amazing 25 or 6 to 4 jam that could come out of a mid-second set Halfway Home!

yes indeed.  stumble into flight is very pigtailish, but that's ok because it's bouncy and happy and doesn't have the word pigtail in it.  ruby waves would transfer over to the ph catalog nicely too.

This is true. I wouldnít be upset if it replaced Pigtailís rare appearance. The jam was pretty sick.

I sunk deep into the first three shows of this tour.  I didn't think there was much more to hear after that.  Same show.  Same setlist.  Didn't think there was any meaningful difference between the shows.  Really like the material, but It seemed to be the same from show to show. 

Thank God my OCD kicked in. 

The 4-13 show kicks all the asses on this tour from my seat.  This applies:

It's gotten SO much better.  It's like they've gotten tighter and looser at the same time  :beers:

Pumped to see them on Saturday/

It's nice, but it looks more like a SCI poster, what with the jellyfish and all.

I'm blissfully unaware of jellyfish being a SCI thing.

Personally I think it's the best of the tour, although I did like the Portland poster quite a bit too.

Saw the Berkeley show.
On the whole, liked it a lot.
Many excellent musical passages in there, along with some pretty insufferable Trey lyrics. I appreciate the sentiment, but sometimes it sounds like he's writing these things by assembling life affirmations he found on greeting cards. Though the fact that he's so sincere and adorable helps to make up for that.
So anyway, as for the show overall, I was into it.
And those times when the music and lyrics were overly Trey cheesy, I could always focus in on Fishman, who killed it from start to finish.

Itís hard to complain. In the last few years trey has given us everything we could want from his songwriting both alone and with his various partners. I mean, in the last five years weíve been blessed with two Halloweenís worth of non-sensical, funny, quirky, phish on par (at least lyrically) with Junta-era classics like David Bowie, YEM, or Dinner and a Movie. Weíve got thinkers and epic works like Mercury and Petrichor. Weíve got some cheesy schmaltz like GotF... but itís really hard to complain.

The man is on fire lately. Taken with that wide angle view GotF is an incredible accomplishment in the midst of everything else that seems to hold treys attention these days.

I came here to post the EXACT same thing.  Get out of my head dude!  :lol:

But, seriously, great show and Fish rocked it.  Had an amazing time.  Will be interesting to see of this lineup hits the road or records again.  I doubt it personally, but maybe.

Someone was passing out stickers that said something like: Jon Fishman's Almost TAB

I kinda doubt this will be another tour, felt like a one time thing. Though some of those songs will surely turn up in both Trey and Phish shows.

I feel like cactusfan kind of nails it.  yeah, it is so cheesy, but the musicality and amazing supporting cast including the one and only Fish - plus Trey just ripping it up on some parts - made for a very unique and special show.  it's definitely a one-and-done band, IMO... but we'll see some of those songs soon, no doubt.

I have always enjoyed Ray's playing - he is kinda the Melvin Seals to Trey's Jerry, if that makes sense - and I think this context has had some of his best playing with Trey.

I agree with cactus and Pie, there are times when Trey writes the music to fit the lyrics which I really don't care for - the instrumentals are the best parts of GOTF for me - and there are times when it seems the lyrics are placed over the music as an afterthought. I like those latter instances, and I hope those always continue.

I do hope some enterprising soul posts a recording without the vocals. Those lyrics are terrible.

Ghosts of the Forest - Beneath a Sea of Stars is up on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, etc. - Recorded at the final GotF show at the Greek in Berkeley and remastered, etc. - sounds fucking fantastic!

No note as to whether or not they upgraded the show on LivePhish. I just rocked that show the other day (again) after the movie. It's terrific.
