A full decade since the big event... Wow...
Trey sat in with the Dave Matthews Band last night (8/14) at Saratoga Performing Arts Center for "Lie in Our Graves".
On Friday, July 27, Amfibian will have a release party for its new CD Skip the Goodbyes, with 2 sets starting at 9pm, at the Lion's Den in NYC. Special guests include Room 1091 and Frogg Cafe. The First 100 people in the door get the July issue of Relix, featuring exclusive interviews with Page McConnell, Tom Marshall, and more.
The 8/13/93 show from the Murat Theatre (Indianapolis, IN) has been released via LivePhish, "the whole show in full, crisp, beautifully re-mastered soundboard audio." The show - which features epic versions of Bathtub Gin, Mike's Song, and Ya Mar - is available via download or on CD with filler from the soundcheck. This release also starts a new LivePhish service whereby shows ordered online will also be "delivered to your doorstep ... in an innovative and earth friendly folding digi-pak with sticker labels." The last three archive releases (11/14/95, 12/1/95, and 12/29/97) are also available via this service, "with bonus tracks where space permits.quot; The release is also being hailed with a limited edition (n=1,000), brand new, mid-size (13"x19") Pollack poster for the show.
WCSH reports that Page "'didn't try to get the band back together'", and "didn't want" to reassemble the band virtually, although all four "happened to play on his new self-titled solo CD." He also said there would be "a lot of conversations that would take place" before a reunion could happen. BTW, here's the Glide review of a recent Page show (6/4/07).
Phish is 24 years old in 150 days. Prepare to debauch.
Trey due back in court.Friday is also Blame Someone Else Day.
The band Phish announced today that the worldwide fear of computer-related crime has been unfounded, as every single instance of apparent frauds known as "phishing" have simply been part of an elaborate marketing ploy on behalf of the band. Bassist Mike Gordon reportedly bought some film with two of the credit cards, "just to make it seem legit", but no charges were filed in those instances, since the apparent victims were Danny Bonaduce and Michael Bolton.The hoax was reportedly brought to a halt in order to mend relationships between th band's management and several national banks, whose financial assistance will be needed in order to mount the reunion tour planned for Summer of 2008. Turnout for that tour is expected to require the construction of new, super-sized stadiums nationwide, as well as on-site...uh...something about...wookies... oh, forget it. Happy April Fool's Day.
