Review by syntropic

syntropic This isn't a review as much as it is a need to comment. I'll leave the reviews for those with better writing abilities. Please share if so desired. But here we go:

Earlier this week we saw an “article” from the Dead’s former tour manager absolutely ripping Phish and the entire scene. He didn’t even name the band he saw in the rant. If you haven’t read it yet, you probably shouldn’t.

Last night, on 8/4/17, Phish opened the 11th night of the Baker’s Dozen MSG run with, See that My Grave is Kept Clean (One Kind Favor), an old blues song played by the Dead in ’66 and revisited often by Garcia and friends.

Phish followed the nod to Garcia with the original tune Punch You in the Eye. Do you think that was an accident? It is not my place to say.

I use to have over 200 bootleg analog tapes of both bands, and have never really considered them to be similar bands. I have never understood what all the beef was about or comparison for that matter.

However, the rant was reckless and mandates rebuttal. So whether you enjoy winding through the hills of Marin County in a brand new Tesla, sucking on your CBD isolate or if you just enjoy a nice water fall in the green mountains with some Ben and Jerry’s and the northern you’ve been back crossing for 20 years, one thing can be agreed upon is this:

We all know who to call, when you need to sellout Levi’s Stadium.

Thank you, Ernest Joseph Anastasio III, for playing the blues. Can we get a Crossroads? Be kind, ya’ll.
