Print #8

Print #8: TPC3 – Phish 1.0, 2012-2015
Artist: A.J. Masthay

Long a fixture of the Phish fan-artist scene, having created dozens of his spectacular hand-crafted linocut prints, this is A.J.’s third print for The Mockingbird Foundation and one of the most stunning in the TPC3 series. A.J. is a fixture on the rock art scene known for his unique talent and technique, and has made many official prints for bands like Umphrey’s McGee, WSP, and Further, and recently he created a highly coveted triptych for Trey’s Grateful Dead side project. We could think of no better artist to represent Phish’s current 3.1 era, where the band has truly hit their stride and are taking us all to new heights, and of course A.J. has delivered. This beautiful work features the mockingbird carrying the Helping Friendly Book with the help of a giant tweezer, and is full of imagery inspired by the magic of a rejuvenated Phish in their 30s. Set the vacuum to blow, because there’s no sucking here!

Print #8 - Rainbow Foil variantPrint #8 - Rainbow Foil Variant

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.

Check back tomorrow to see the final print in the series!

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.

Check back tomorrow to see the next print in the series!

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?

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!

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.

Come back tomorrow to see the next print in the series!

Along with the three shows at Chicago’s Soldier Field on July 3rd, 4th, and 5th, the run will mark the original members’ last-ever performances together.  The band will be joined by Trey Anastasio (guitar), Jeff Chimenti (keyboards), and Bruce Hornsby (piano) and perform two sets of music each night.

Mike Gordon June 2015 Tour Announced

Mike Gordon returns to the road this June with his band on the heels of last year’s exhilarating tour supporting Overstep. The tour will begin down south in Charleston, SC and will include stops in Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago, Philly, Albany, Buffalo, New Haven and more. Mike will perform as part of the Lowell Summer Music Series just outside of Boston and will return to the famed Egg in Albany.


The band will make a few debuts along the way including The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, Paper Mill Island in Syracuse and a Father’s Day show at the Academy of Music in Northampton. The band’s  repertoire will be augmented by hints of synesthetic mad scientist gadgetry on and around the stage. Mike will be bringing along his band – Scott Murawski (guitar), Craig Myers (percussion), Robert Walter (keyboards) and John Kimock (drums).
 
Wired Magazine came out to a show on Mike’s March tour last year to experience and talk about the new visual, audio and interactive tech-ification that will be a part of this June run.
 
“I like the idea of breaking down boundaries,” Gordon says. Of the theatrics and curiosities onstage on the Overstep tour, the centerpiece is an interactive piano-like instrument spanning the lip of the stage. At certain points during the show, touch-sensitive panels illuminate; by tapping on them, audience members trigger sounds and jam with the band as it plays. That’s just one piece of the big wacky puzzle. To experience it for yourself, catch one of the shows on this tour.
 
A limited number of tickets are available NOW via a real-time presale at tickets.mike-gordon.com which ends Thursday, April 9 at 5PM ET. Tickets will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, April 10.
