Trying to predict anything about a certain Phish show is an exercise in futility. All you can ever be sure of is that you will hear lots of songs you love and have an amazing time. That’s the baseline standard, but there are huge variations within all that. Coming off what are in the view of many the two best shows of the summer so far in Atlanta, it was tough to say how the band would respond. On the one hand, they had just blown up Atlanta with heady, deep improvisation in both night’s second sets (and in the first set on Friday), and were about to cap off that three-night run. On the other, they changed venues and cities, which might interrupt the momentum. But of course, #NeverMissASundayShow.

Tuscaloosa Amphitheater is a gorgeous small amphitheater with no lawn. Imagine just the pavilion of a venue like Merriweather or Great Woods, but the entire lower 100-level section was GA. Sight lines were excellent and the venue felt really tiny, with great sound everywhere, and cheap beer! With the sun setting behind the stage and woods all around, and a friendly Southern spirit in the air, the scene was right for a good time.

Print #7

Print #7: TPC3 – Phish 3.0, 2009-2011
Artist: Nate Duval

Description: With over fifteen official Phish-related gig posters and many mail-order ticket designs to his credit, artist Nate Duval has created a wealth of unique works. Instrumental in the success of the TPC3 print project, Nate helped us to find and inspire many of our artists, and for that we thank him. For his piece celebrating the 3.0 era, Nate brings us all back to the mothership, scene of the band’s glorious return from their second (and hopefully final) retirement, as it jubilantly takes flight below a celebration of balloons.

TPC3 - Phish 2.0 by Jessica Seamans (Landland)

Print #6: TPC3 – Phish 2.0, 2003-2004
Artist: Jessica Seamans, Landland

For this print, the second in our series from Landland, Jessica interprets the brief two-year period when Phish (prematurely?) returned from their first retirement. Here the curtains are pulled back to reveal the whole zoo back out on road, with the round room keeping IT going. But all is not well in the land of the lizards, as so many have forgotten to take care of their shoes, and as the mockingbird delivers a letter from Trey, everyone else is just trying to stay above the thick, thick Coventry mud.

Print #5: TPC3 – Phish 1.4, 1999-2000
Artist: Justin Helton/Status Serigraph

Description: A true giant on the rock art scene, Knoxville-based designer Justin Helton has created over ten gig prints for Phish-related projects, plus stunning work for Trey’s new side band (The Grateful Dead) and much much more. For TPC3, he has chosen to interpret Phish’s first true creative peak: the 1999-2000 period that saw the entire tribe migrate to the Big Cypress Seminole reservation for a monumental millennium celebration. Justin brings us a celebration of lizards (in their larger, gator form), toasting the new year from their moonlight swamp, while the mockingbird looks on from atop a farmhouse. Cheesecake, anyone?

Blog Atlanta 2: Don't Be the Only One Left on the Block

Posted 2015-08-02 11:39 am by phishnet - 23 comments

[Editor's Note: this recap is by phish.net contributor Craig Hillwig –PZ]

Phish returned to Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood, Georgia on August 1, 2015 for the second show of a two-night stand. Heading into Lakewood, I had many questions. First, which version of Phish would show up? Other than a fine effort at Shoreline and select segments of others, the performances had been pretty hit and miss through the first six shows of the tour. Second, there was a pretty big elephant in the room. Trey’s guest performances during the Fare Thee Well run of shows sparked renewed and vigorous debate over whether Phish would – or even should – pay tribute to Jerry Garcia in honor of his birthday on August 1 (or of his passing on August 9 at Alpine Valley).

Print #4 - DKNG Studios

Print #4: TPC3 – Phish 1.3, 1996-1998
Artist: DKNG Studios

DKNG is a Los Angeles-based design studio acclaimed for their bold work for the music and entertainment industries. Very popular with fans, they have created over a dozen gig posters for Phish, including several much-coveted diptychs and triptychs. We are proud to have DKNG as part of the TPC3 print series, representing the high-energy 1996-1998 era. In this stunning print, Phish has destroyed America, brought the party over to Europe, and the mockingbird clings to the back of a fired-up worm, returning to drop an udder-ball full of cow funk on the USA. Incredible…and wait until you see the variant!

Blog Atlanta 1: Southern Comeback

Posted 2015-08-01 10:58 am by phishnet - 20 comments

[Editor's Note: this recap is by @sausagemahoney and @jugglerswithfire –PZ]

Happy Tahoe Tweezer anniversary! 7/31 has produced some stellar shows and gems in our past. Once again the band brought the heat on their first night in a southern weekend run of fun. Friday night in Atlanta was easily the best show of the tour so far, and certainly in an elite group of “3.0” shows led by 8/31/12 that also includes 8/7/09, 11/28/09, 8/19/12, 9/1/12, 8/4/13, 10/20/13, 10/27/13, 10/29/13, 11/1/13, 7/13/14, and 10/31/14.

And yet it starts with "Prince Caspian" and ends – not to spoil things – with "Character Zero." Jon Fishman is active and playful from the beginning, laying behind the beat, letting the beat roll back over him. As a result of which this "Caspian" is a perfectly pleasant way to start the evening. Then there's a backwards guitar loop and all of a sudden, boom! An explosion into the greasy Nawlins clavinet groove of "No Men in No Man's Land." A perfect to add some funky energy back into sticky Hotlanta air and really get the dance party started! All four members seemed really locked into a synergistic groove. I sincerely believe this is a good song. My favorite of the new ones. May we enjoy it for years to come. The version from The Forum last week, the best take on the tune so far, had three distinct jams. They would just bring the vocals back, and then go out again with a different jam. You had the sense they could do it five, six times, going out and coming back, each time navigating to a different place. This one won't be that special, since it's the first set and all and there are rules here, man, but it is hella tight and Jon Fishman is at the front of the peloton slicing through the headwind.

Artist: David Welker

We are honored to have acclaimed artist David Welker (Phish's Rift album cover, 6+ official prints, Hoerle-Guggenheim Gallery artist) interpret the genesis era of Phish's 32+ year career. Featuring knight-in-shining-armor Rutherford the Brave as he plunges into the watery depths, this print is bursting with imagery from the the band's epic saga (and Trey's Goddard senior thesis) "The Man Who Stepped into Yesterday" (aka Gamehendge), and deftly honors Phish's earliest years. Includes a hidden glow-in-the-dark layer! We've really gotta hand it to you, David...

TPC 1.1 - Sei Rey Ho

Print #2: TPC3 - Phish 1.1, 1990-1992
Artist: Sei Rey Ho

Sei Rey Ho and his studio Us & Them are the creative forces behind numerous posters, logos and patches created in recent years for Phish and side projects, and his clean, engaging design has won numerous awards. In his print for TPC3, Sei Rey presents a parade of the animal subjects of many of the band's songs, led by the not-quite-yet-famous mockingbird, as they follow the lines going south toward bigger shows, larger crowds, and ever-greater success.

Blog Texas II: Playing in the Grand

Posted 2015-07-30 2:15 pm by phishnet - 13 comments

[Editor's note: This Grand Prairie recap is by phish.net contributor Matt Burnham. –PZ]

On Wednesday, Phish played their first show in the greater Dallas area in seventeen years. Not since the hallowed summer tours of 1997 and 1998 had Phish graced this part of the country with its presence. In fact, up until the Austin show this tour, no second set had been played in all of Texas since 1999. After an unbalanced (and hot!) show on Tuesday, the band finished up their Texas Two Step by taking over the Verizon Theater at Grand Prairie. As Trey noted, the venue was about 20 miles east of his Ft. Worth birthplace, making this more of a hometown show and building extra anticipation among the crowd. Adding to this, the Verizon Theater is by far the smallest venue of the tour and acoustically without equal. And it was indoors and air conditioned providing a reprieve from the Texas sun and heat.

Energy is obviously very important when seeing live music. It's the unwritten communication method between the crowd and band. Playing in such a small and controlled space really seemed to energize the band – the energy and interplay between the crowd and the band was like nothing I've seen before. Feeding off of this energy really propelled the band on Wednesday.

On Tuesday night Phish’s performed their first gig at the 14,000-capacity Austin 360 Amphitheater. It was their twenty-third show in Texas, with the first on 10/25/90 at The Showbar in Houston, and most recently on 10/8/10 at the Austin City Limits festival. Great performances litter the Texas roster, including the famed Bomb Factory show on 5/7/94 and the two-step at the Starplex Amphitheater in Dallas on 7/25/97 and Austin’s South Park Meadows on 7/26/97. Nobody was expecting cool breezes for this late July Texas show, and the 8:34pm start time saw the band and fans doing their best to manage a sweltering 95°F.

While I’d never recommend to anybody that they make spontaneous plans to visit Dallas, necessarily, the argument for jumping onto Phish tour amassed another body of evidence with last night’s show at the L.A. Forum.

We are four shows into the summer swing and the band is deliberate, playful, and right where they belong – namely, deeply engaged with one another. Trey and Mike’s onstage bromance – manifested in lots of face-to-face interplay and even a little instrumental spooning – flowered further last night.

Bar 17 and 18 Steps provide a fascinating snapshot of Trey’s development as a solo artist.  Begun before 2005’s Shine, but completed afterwards, these albums have one foot in TAB’s early swing period and one on the other side of Shine’s poppier sound.  The music on Trey Anastasio was heavily influenced by King Sunny Adé, Trey told High Times in a 2002 interview.  “Sophisticated, elegant, harmonic language that comes from swing-band concepts, and then I keep hearing King Sunny Adé as a reference point on the other end. . . . The idea I wanted to take from King Sunny Adé was the concept of having a lot of people playing small parts that are intertwined together.”  ...

Song History Song History: Walls of the Cave

Posted 2015-06-24 1:42 pm by Martin Acaster (Doctor_Smarty) - Link: http://phi.sh/s/648

Plato suggests in his Allegory of the Cave that what mankind sees as reality is actually a collection of shadows cast on the walls of the cave in which we are imprisoned. Enlightenment comes when an individual grasps the idea that there is truth beyond sense. The light at the end of the tunnel isn’t always a freight train heading your way. Sometimes, that light is freedom and salvation. Upon realizing this higher knowledge, we become involved in the process of evolution. We are inclined to return to the darkness of the cave with the good word of the world beyond. We risk the ridicule and rejection of our fellow prisoners in hope that others may be aroused out of the regrettable state of slavery and illusion. Rather than force the information down the throats (or in the ears) of our former peers, we, the newly illuminated, choose to leave subtle messages inscribed upon the walls of our common prison of conventional reality....
