Re: PHISH!!!

WAITING LIST!!!!! Dammit!!!! I mean...great for you guys....but my plan was...

I had noticed that they were offering a pay half now...pay the other half later kinda deal to help people out a little. Cool...I get it, kinda pricey. I was on the fence about weather or not I could swing it. Got a great new job as Head/Exec Chef opening a new restaurant so I could afford it....the problem was MLK weekend. It's a "holiday" / long weekend and up here in ski country it means CRAZY BUSY. So as the new head Chef of a new resto.....going to Mexico on MLK wknd was a little sketchy...I talked with the owner and my staff and they were like...."DUDE!!! You gotta go!!! We'll be fine!!! GOGOGO!!! That sounds awesome!!!" (side note....I blew off Magna ball - even though it was on my BIRTHDAY!! because...well again new job/new place/responsibilities ..etc)

So I thought , rather than pulling out my hair via online BS ordering, I'd wait for those broke azz peeps who placed their orders and couldn't swing the second half of the payment. I was sure they were going to re-release some tix/packages once that month was up and a buncha people didn't make that second payment. Kept checking the Phish site expecting a big announcement of additional available packages for purchase. Oops....

So how many tix/ppl at the show? Did you say about only 5 thousand??

They gotta do this again!!!!!!

Re: PHISH!!!

Awww, that sucks!

Yeah, the Waiting List was the way to go. I think they had offered packages through the low 200's before the second payments were due, and then the floodgates opened. They were also able to get more rooms at the Barceló after the deadline for time-share people to book for that weekend. I guess they have to hold a certain number of rooms for time shares and Barceló Gold (or whatever they call it) members.

The number everyone was throwing around was 5,000, and that seemed right. But a lot of people were swimming in from the Bel-Air beach or from boats off shore, so maybe 5,100 actual attendees. A couple of paddle boarders showed up each night too (Trey talked to them from the stage on night one), and by night three, people were riding large pool floaties into the show. Every now and then, a wave would take them out to sea and the security/lifeguards on jet skis had to go grab them and bring them back to shore, even if they didn't have a bracelet. So long as people without bracelets didn't step on shore, they didn't have to worry about getting arrested. A few dumb asses still tried, and they were quickly taken out in cuffs.

One of the best parts was how much fun the staff seemed to have. Aside from bringing drinks to everyone, everywhere, the Barceló staff that were working the event (had to be over 100 waiters/waitresses, never mind the cooks serving food and the bartenders, 200 wouldn't even be an exaggeration) were dancing, taking pictures and video on their own phones, sitting on fans shoulders (some of them are VERY tiny), dancing some more, and generally having as much fun as all of us fans were.

It's one thing to take a friend to a show and see their face when they get it, but here, there were DOZENS of locals experiencing their first Phish show, and GETTING IT. So fricking cool. It was unlike anything I've ever seen, never mind been a part of. There are rumors of them doing this for another 2-3 years, so here's hoping. I highly recommend it.

Re: PHISH!!!

We scored Pavilion for SPAC 1 & 3 and Pavilion for Mansfield. (Pretty stoked. My wife is a lottery CHAMPION.) Not sure about anything else.
I already swapped a pair of Sunday lawns for Saturday, and I'm trying to swap a Sunday pair of pavs for a Saturday pair. Cash or Trade is a great site, but it can be frustrating as hell when people don't READ. THEIR. DAMN. MESSAGES.
Portland is a real possibility.
Syracuse is a long shot.
Dick's... I should probably just book the flights. (But we're holding out for Mexico Dos)
At least four more shows.
I can't wait.

Re: PHISH!!!

Doing Mexico again.
Back at the Palace.

I've had Silent in the Morning on a loop in my head for three days. "I hope this exact thing happens to me, just next yeeeeear..."

Can't wait.

Re: PHISH!!!

I have to go next year. It's a pretty penny but I'm super sure it's worth it 100%! I saw some terrific video of the show last year recently over on YouTube. I hope they do it again so I have another chance.

So I'm a die hard White Sox fan, and I'm going to two nights at Wrigley Field. Very excited. Wrigleyville is a huge party area and it's a first for Phish playing there. I play nice with Cubs fans, only if they listen to Phish. I need to find some White Sox/Phish swag to rock. I'm super jealous of the Carini Cubs logo shown in the photo below (Parking lot at 2014 First Merit Bank Pavilion Northerly Island).
I'm the short stuff in the Sox hat.

Re: PHISH!!!

The prog-rock tune in the background is SICK.
I can't wait to hear the rest of it.
Preferably LIVE.

Funny post I saw on FB about this.

Guys....new album is called Big Boat....release date is the start of Columbus day weekend....where did Columbus come from?? EUROPE!!! How did he get here??? A BIG <snip>in boat!! It couldn't be any more clear here guys! I'm too drunk to taste this chicken

With the Spring Europe rumors flying around, I fell off my chair.
The fans are as awesome as the band.

Saw Hartford!!! Loved it!!! No detailed synopsis here but they played my faves!!! VULTURES!!!!! Eargasm every time!!! Halleys comet, Tela, Carini and Lizards encore!!!!! FRICK YES!!!!! Had a blast cuz I could crash with some ole high school buddies who live in Hartford and got VIP parking (and did the small amount of driving), so just the 1 show summer tour.

My brother lives in Nashville and as they announced fall tour back in August (around my birfday) he asked if I wanted tix.......so....BOTH shows!!!! YAY ME!!!!!!! Happy (late but what ev) Birthday to Me!!!! Those shows sold out quick , I guess it's a pretty tiny venue. About a week away and I'm pumped!!!!
