Mister Charlie told you so.

Soooo... That second set, huh? Man I love this band! Covering an album so obscure that it doesn't even really exist!  :phish:

What just happened? 

I think we might have gotten weird (again) tonight.
Quote from: Trey Anastasio
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.

Phish is the coolest thing of all time ever for ever. FUCK YES!
I can only imagine how much I would hate people at an event like 'roo.

Pebbles and marbles, like things on my mind...

We all remember the spots in the bands history where they learn an album for Halloween, or the gigs playing small clubs in Europe, and then the after effects in progressing stylistically, and helps forge another layer of creativity to their music. Remain In Light is probably the best example of this, imo. Iíd like to think that the same will happen with this choice they made for tonightís show. That said, I thought it was a great show, and those that were there in person got a gem of a performance. I listened to it via mxlr stream, and it was two different sources, bith seemed to sound like AUDs, and neither got shut down. Sound quality of source for set one wasnít bad, but the second source that I switched to before set 2 started sounded a lot better. Iím really interested in getting to watch the video from set 2, since they were all decked out in white, and Trey was playing an all white, Strat style guitar. Anyone know if itís one of Paulís, a Fender Strat, or some other guitar company? Also, Tweezer was filthy, per usual. I love where they are, especially how far theyíve come since the Coventry disaster shows.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

This is a real album.  There was only one copy in Portland.  Hicks had it on tape when he was 12.  He used to play it on a boom box in his neighbors basement.

I wasnít too close but pretty certain it was a Fender.

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.
