a Project of the Mockingbird Foundation

Prepare for the "No Spoilers!" Hampton Downloads

Posted 2009-03-01 17:57:04 by Lemuria - 0 comments - Link:

"No Spoilers" is a project to offer decent quality MP3 downloads of each Hampton show as soon as possible after each show is over. Only two generic files will be posted - Set1 & Set2+E. There will be no identifying information, and they will be hosted on a safe "spoiler free" page. If you are patient enough to stay off the grid, this will be the next best thing to being at Hampton. You will experience the show in tape delay, but also in mystery, without knowing what magical journeys Phish decided to bust out. You can have a legitimate Phish party if you have enough like-minded friends! You can warm up with the Clifford Ball DVDs, which have just been released, while you're waiting! :)

What have YOU been doing?

Got married? Had kids? Got a degree? Tell everyone at the upcoming shows what you have been doing since Coventry with a fun shirt, hat, or other item. 5% of every purchase comes back to the Mockingbird Foundation to support music education for children. You can also, of course, still get the traditional Mockingbird logo merchandise. Either way, you're helping teach kids music - and encouraging others to do so, as well! PLEASE help us!

Hampton Hotels Cancelling on Fans

Posted 2009-03-01 12:23:42 by Lemuria - 0 comments - Link:

The Daily Press reports, and message board posters have been complaining, that Hampton hotels are cancelling reservations for the upcoming reunion weekend - reservations that in some instances were made six months ago! The Red Roof claims a computer system update for losing a block of reservations they've apparently found again, and Extended Stay America won't provide an answer, redirecting questions and complains to their corporate office. But Savannah Suites fesses up completely, for having booked 103 reservations for only 23 rooms available, a five-to-one ratio nonetheless described as "double-booked". The hotels are offering, at best, rooms available at hotels 20-30 miles (plus concert traffic) away (rather than walking distance), at different rates, with no compensation for rate differences or transportation.
