Re: PHISH!!!

Ok so 1000th post in this thread should be a good one right?

Halloween is TOMORROW.
And still NO ONE has any clue as to what album they are going to play.
I've heard great arguments for great albums, but even then, we won't know until the doors open and the Phishbills are given out. IF they do that this year. Remember, this is the first year they are webcasting Halloween and may want to make it more of a surprise.

I was there in Atlanta the first time they handed out the Phishbills as we walked in, and I gotta admit, it was disappointing. I didn't want to know what album they were going to play until they started playing it. And that tradition seemed to follow up until today. Maybe that will change tomorrow and they'll bring back that element of shock and surprise.

This two week fall tour has been nothing short of AMAZING.
Every single show has been awesome. While some were clearly better than others, in my opinion, it's difficult to say there was a "best" show of tour so far.

So now we're left with three nights in AC starting with the Halloween goodies.
And a 3 night run means anything goes. Every song is an option, no matter what they played before.

And finally, I will throw down my final prediction(s) as to what I think the musical costume tomorrow night will be.

#1 - THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON BROADWAY - just because Gabriel isn't available to do it with them doesn't lessen the fact that Trey has openly said they want to play this album. Could the cat have been let out of the bag early? If they play this, I will lose my mind.

#2 - THE NEW PHISH ALBUM - its their 30th year, how interesting would it be to get a set of all new Phish songs. We know it's been written and shy of post production has been recorded. On that note...

#3 - GAMEHENGE - again, the 30th year. Probably the last time they could pull it off and it be crazy cool and remembered forever. Picture it.....they come out for second set dressed up as themselves from 30 years ago and play the long awaited Gamehenge set. They have only played TWO songs (once each) from the saga this entire tour - AC/DC Bag to open on 10/22 in Rochester, and Wilson on 10-25 in Worcester. Also consider the webcast - it is available to be seen by all so no one can complain about not getting to see the last time Gamehenge was played in its entirety live. Sounds like a pretty convincing argument, right?

I could go on and on, but I'll just list a few of the other albums I've heard tossed around by more reputable sources:
- EAT A PEACH (with Derek Trucks)
- Bob Dylan/The Band (I forget what album I heard it was)
- Ween (I hope not)
- Physical Graffiti
- Thriller
- anything by the Grateful Dead

You know, the usual suspects.

In less than 24 hours, we will know. And once that pressure has vented, we can enjoy the massive tour closer they have in store for us.

Hang on folks, because it's going to get REALLY CRAZY.

Re: PHISH!!!

Can you feel it??
That is super hyper crazy energy in the air.
I've been reading fans anticipation and predictions all day, and the general feeling throughout the Phish community can be summed up in one very large word. And that word is....

RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
AAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!!


CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY!!!!!

So I'm sitting here freaking out waiting for someone, anyone to post a legitimate picture of the PHISHBILL they're handing out tonight.
It should be in the next hour or so. We will know.

Someone who was contacted by the band's mgmt to create "fake" ads for it confirmed that they are indeed passing out the Phishbills upon entry tonight, but he has no clue what album they're going to play.

As of right now, the top contenders are:

#1 - "GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD" - Elton John

#2 - "ROCK OF AGES" - The Band

#3 - "OK COMPUTER" - Radiohead

#4 - "THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON BROADWAY" - Genesis

#5 - "EAT A PEACH" - The Allman Bros.

#6 - "WAKE OF THE FLOOD" - Grateful Dead

There is a large group who believes the costume will be the new Phish album, but the more I think about it, the less likely I think it is.

I'm off to scour the net until I find out. I'll be back, and I'll put it in tags so if you don't want to know, I won't ruin it.

Re: PHISH!!!

Just opened up the webcast.
I'm freaking out already and they're not going on for at least another half hour.
NOW it makes sense why there are two more shows in AC after tonight.
Gonna be three crazy crazy shows.

ETA - the crowd is freaking out too. And they're playing John Carpenter's "Halloween" theme over the PA system as pre-show music!!!!!!

Re: PHISH!!!

One set in the books and it was a very well played set.
You can tell how excited they are to play the new stuff.
They pretty much covered every era of the band in that first set:

HEAVY THINGS
MOMA DANCE
POOR HEART
BACK ON THE TRAIN
SILENT IN THE MORNING
KILL DEVIL FALLS
MOUND
FREE
CAMEL WALK
STASH
GOLGI APPARATUS
BATHTUB GIN

And for the first time in I don't know how long, Trey was doing the "muppet dance". Those of you who saw them back in 93-94 days know of what I speak.

I have a feeling this next set of 12 ALL NEW PHISH SONGS NEVER BEFORE HEARD OR PLAYED LIVE is going to be something to behold.
