I am what tends to be a younger fan these days at age twenty. On Sunday night at Dick&#39;s, I was only able to attend the show alone, and was pretty stoked for what would be show #6 for me. While sitting down to relax before the show, I started chatting with the guy next to me about the run of shows. </p> Wed, 06 Sep 2017 12:57:03 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Dicks XXI Recap: Not Still Lawn Boy http://phi.sh/b/59adce24 http://phi.sh/b/59adce24 <p>Another summer has passed, the ninth since the opening notes of &quot;<a href="http://www.phish.net/song/fluffhead/history">Fluffhead</a>&quot; <a href="http://www.phish.net/setlists/phish-march-06-2009-hampton-coliseum-hampton-va-usa.html">kickstarted</a> what has come to be called Phish 3.0. Phish has evolved significantly since then. They are more apt to play extended jams than in those early 3.0 days. They&#39;ve also built up a significant catalog of original 3.0 material - about a third of the songs played in any given show can be expected to have made their debut since Barack Obama&#39;s inauguration (god, weren&#39;t those the days?). They&#39;ve also created a new traditional run of shows: The Labor Day run in Colorado or, as Phish fans more simply call it: <a href="http://www.phish.net/venue/961/Dick%27s_Sporting_Goods_Park">Dick&#39;s</a>.</p> <p>Last night concluded the seventh annual Dick&#39;s run. Most years it seems like the excitement and anticipation of Phish tour reaches a frothy peak at Dick&#39;s. This year was different. The Baker&#39;s Dozen was such an exciting event for so many obvious reasons that it seemed like it sucked a little air out of the Dick&#39;s balloon. (The same thing happened in 2015 after <a href="http://www.phish.net/setlists/phish-august-21-2015-watkins-glen-international-watkins-glen-ny-usa.html">Magnaball</a>.) There was no way Phish could top (or even equal) what they accomplished in 13 shows at MSG in a single three night run. Of course that made it all the more remarkable that on Friday night they threw down probably the best set of the year (at least in this recapper&#39;s opinion). Conventional wisdom was that Saturday was a significant step back from Friday. What would Sunday bring?</p> <p><figure><img alt="Photo &copy; Phish (Andy Mann)" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/Dicks1733.jpg" /><figcaption>Photo &copy; <a href='https://:www.phish.com'>Phish (Andy Mann)</a></figcaption></figure></p> Mon, 04 Sep 2017 18:22:22 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@lumpblockclod) Blog Mystery Jam Monday Part 290 http://phi.sh/b/59acf114 http://phi.sh/b/59acf114 <p>Welcome to the 290th edition of Phish.Net&#39;s Mystery Jam Monday, the first* and easiest of September.

For the fourth summer in a row, I&rsquo;ve had the privilege of teaching this course, offered through Oregon State University&rsquo;s Ecampus program. During this session, I introduced fifteen non- (or not yet-) phans to our favorite band through an eight-week survey of the philosophy of art and music. Witnessing student&rsquo;s reactions to their first Phish shows and answering their questions about what Dr. Jnan Blau has termed the &ldquo;<a href="https://works.bepress.com/jablau/2/">Phish phenomenon</a>&rdquo; helps me to remember what it&rsquo;s like to be a Phish neophyte and gain some reflective distance on what it means to be a phan of Phish.</p> <p>In preparation for writing this recap, I&rsquo;ve been reflecting on the significance of Phish&rsquo;s annual Labor Day tradition. Without question, Dick&rsquo;s is my favorite spot for seeing Phish; it&rsquo;s the only venue for which I&rsquo;ve had the honor of attending every show. Each year, the stadium has been blessed with numerous unanticipated song placements, contenders for &ldquo;best of&rdquo; versions (such as the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWh1ur7B5FI">9/1/2012 &ldquo;Light</a>&rdquo;, 8/31/2012 &ldquo;Undermind,&rdquo; 8/29/14 &ldquo;Simple,&rdquo; 9/2/2011 &ldquo;Slave,&rdquo; and many more), top-notch jamming, and creative setlist pranks. Over the course of seven years, Dick&rsquo;s has acquired a mysterious, otherworldly atmosphere that evades linguistic description. It&rsquo;s certainly not the only sacred site for Phish phans; Madison Square Garden, Watkins Glen, and, of course, Big Cypress, for example, carry their own mystical charm and historic weight. What is so special about Dick&rsquo;s? Why does my annual journey to Commerce City feel like a pilgrimage?<figure><img alt="&copy; Yaron Marcus" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/2017-09-02 Dicks Trey1 Marcus.jpg" /><figcaption>&copy; Yaron Marcus</figcaption></figure></p> Sun, 03 Sep 2017 03:56:32 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Dicks1 Recap: Hold On To Your Butts http://phi.sh/b/59aafe58 http://phi.sh/b/59aafe58 <p><em>[Recap courtesy of Pete Hoherd, user <a href="https://phish.net/user/FunkyCFunkyDo">@FunkyCFunkyDo</a>.]</em></p> <p>If you haven&rsquo;t already peeked at the <a href="http://phish.net/setlists/phish-september-01-2017-dicks-sporting-goods-park-commerce-city-co-usa.html">setlist</a> from last night&rsquo;s show, good.

It will be sold for&nbsp;$7, and will be served in a jar that&nbsp;you can buy for $3 (while supplies last). The jars were very popular at the previous fundraisers years ago (also held when Phish played Northerly), so we expect they&#39;ll sell out.&nbsp;</p> <p>For every &quot;Sample&quot; consumed over the weekend, Rock Bottom will donate fifty cents to Mockingbird, but they&#39;ll donate $1 to Mockingbird for every jar sold. So, in other words, <strong>if you buy a &quot;Sample <em>AND </em>a Jar,&quot; $1.50 of your $10 will go to Mockingbird</strong>, and support the funding of music education programs. Rock Bottom will also have some &quot;Phish-inspired&quot; live music on their roof on Thursday, July 13, and will have the &quot;Sample&quot; tapping party that day as well. This promotion thus runs from Thursday through Sunday the 16th. The rooftop will be open (and serving food) until&nbsp;10:30pm, and last call on the roof is at&nbsp;11:30pm. But the&nbsp;restaurant will be open post-show on&nbsp;Friday, Saturday, and Sunday&nbsp;with full menu until midnight and a late night menu until&nbsp;1am, with last call at&nbsp;1:30am. [<em>Editor&#39;s note</em>: I was there years ago after 1am&nbsp;post-show, and the place was full of fans.]&nbsp;&nbsp;The brewer, Raybird, and Kyle (an AGM) may be around if you show up at Rock Bottom, passing out Mockingbird information. PLEASE THANK THEM if you see them, as this is a very cool thing for them to do. (And you may see Kyle at a show as well, as he&#39;s a fan!) So, please, support this fundraiser if you can, and if you can&#39;t, at least tell your wook&nbsp;friends going to the shows to support it as well.&nbsp;</p> <p>THANK YOU ROCK BOTTOM!</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/Sample in a Jar.jpg" style="height:800px; width:600px" /></p> Thu, 22 Jun 2017 11:51:51 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@Icculus) News
