Love the idea of Mound making an appearance.  Looking forward to hearing the Reba and Tweezer.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.
My records are my media for music.

too many repetitive setlist combos and songs.....

2011 is looking like major fail....as far as progress goes.....

Phish = nostalgia act

So sad to witness.....especially when there is so much promising material being played, just cut to a short brutal death by the band.....

Who's the Marmar? I'm the Marmar!!!

If John Medeski was my church organist I would NEVER miss a Sunday....

Phish doesn't write beautiful music...the beautiful music happens after the written parts.

<gainesvillegreen> now, if they could get their sound to be as good as the lights, we'd have a band hee-yah!!

Music is what feelings sound like.

Yeah, seeing all of these other setlists and song-timings after listening to what I feel is probably the most cohesive, smooth-flowing non-cringe-worthy 3.0 jam in the Knob Disease all but confirms my own assumption that Trey, like, in all seriousness, legitimately hates jamming now.  Like, he seriously hates it.  After the glory of the Knob Disease, we get a 7 minute Crosseyed?  We have only 7 minutes of Ghost, this whole tour?  Piper no longer possesses the energy and momentum to push past 6 minutes, which in the real world is how long it should take the song to build to proper launch velocity.




Can we like, do a public referendum to get Lefty Trey to replace Trey?  I mean, look at the success of Furthur with John. 


Plus, Lefty Trey never screwed up Hydrogen, or Reba, or You Enjoy Myself, or Mockingbird, or Bowie, or Divided Sky, or TMWSIY, or Fluffhead, or Foam, or McGrupp, in all of the times I ever saw them.  Plus, HE USES WHAMMY LOOPS IN JAMS. 


That way, Tray can go play TAB with his noodle and have cake for breakfast and nobody will give him grief over the lack Type II jamming.  Everbody wins.

Like, no.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

but dude...  Lefty Trey.  Think of how fucking EXCITED and stoked he would be to rip shit up and goof with the space-time continuum in some eleventy-fourth dimensional deflationarialized contortional-torquing of the fractalized expansion inherent in such a quasi-vortex when distilled and placed in such a manner?

I mean, like, woah... 'n stuff.

7 minute Crosseyed is fail.

Gotta leave time for all of the fan favorites!

LOL. Too bad Elton John still finds room for 20+min Rocket Man and Madman Across the Water...on his "greatest hits tour"

Don't FUCK with the dead. Bobby will kick your ass. You remember this, thatfargone. Dead is SER BIZ.

I'd say that Pine Knob and Bethel II are good shows...the rest...not so much.

Dudes, we've been over this, Phish 3.0 isn't about shows... it's about moments...
Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

I know dude.  I mean Phish keeps on playing Phish songs and I'm all like ????????????

But yeah, Phish might be bland now, but at least when they're bland they "sound" "good".  You know what I mean?  Phish is a good time to go to one or two shows, party down, see some tunes and if you're lucky, get a show that wows you like the good ole days.

I'd be very disappointed in myself if I went to an entire tour (unless I was making money on tour and came home with a few thousand extra dollars).
