I love Widespread....Some of their live, jammy releases can be tedious as with all jambands but a lot of it isn't bad, when they are on they are great. I actually find their studio output pretty stellar, definitely better than any "jamband."

Not don't even get me started with String Cheese incident, Umphrey's or Moe. P.U.

I think Billy Beathes, Story and Farmhouse are the only solid Phish studio albums but, like the others, it is definitely worth finding more of their touted live releases to understand what they are all about.

The Grateful Dead w/Jerry >> Phish
Phish > The Dead w/o Jerry

agreed !!!!!

it's no secret i'm a raging phish fan. i go to anywhere between 10 - 15 shows a year ( i did see MMJ 9 times last year though  :thumbsup: ) and i'm already slated for 8 shows out of the 1st summer leg. living in the NE makes that alot easier .. if i didn't live here things would be oh so different. phish shows have always seemed like home to me especially in that i've made oh so many friends over the years .. i can go to any one show and probably run into dozens of people i've known for 10+ years. sometimes the music is awesome-sauce and that's what i'm there for and other times it's more social / hanging out with old friends. 

as for superballz .. i'm not sure i'm going. in fact i'm feeling that i probably won't but i think that's more due to the fact i don't want to see my favorite bands with 30k+ others and most of my regular show folks aren't going. also, this new yorker doesn't have a car or camping gear (hey i live in nyc w/o a car, why do i need camping gear) and .. yeah.

maggie .. lemme know if you go though. if i do go, it'll probably be a last minute thing. i'm sorta waiting to hear what west coast dates might look like .. i wanna get back to the gorge!

Phish in Lake Tahoe is going to happen.  Wish I could make the gorge but we have a wedding to attend in Big Sur that saturday.  But...all in for Tahoe, which is looking like August 10/11.

The Gorge dates have been rumored to be 8/5-8/6 (unofficial but everyone I know is swearing by these dates and have already booked their house or RV rentals).  This has made it impossible to get any of our west coast MMJ loving friends to commit to Red Rocks.

I used to go see Phish when I was younger...and then went last summer for a show..and remembered why I stopped going to Phish shows..lol.  It can be fun I hate dealing with their fans and they can not good at times...just a lot of noodle and no substance...but they do some great covers.

i'm starting to think i'm gonna go to mmj @ red rocks instead of phish @ the gorge. i've done the gorge with them before and red rocks is easier for me plus i have friends that i owe a visit to in that area.  8 shows for 1st leg is gonna have to be enough and if i go to anything in the 2nd leg .. it'll be a closer game-time decision  :thumbsup: congrats west-coasties on finally getting some love!!

I think Im hittin up Cleveland next weekend. Wish I could do Cincy too, but doubtful.

Im by no means the fan I was of them I was 6-8 years ago when I listened them more than any other band, but I always enjoy it when I throw on a show (I think all their albums are solid up thru Farmhouse, I mean, if you like the band I dont see how you can disagree since those are the songs youre hearing live, but its their improvisation/jamming that sets them apart so clearly the albums arent on that level).

Forget the Dead comparisons. As far as their greatness, IMO they can hang their hat on the fact that no other band of a similar genre has been able to touch them since their arrival almost 25 years ago.

Passing on three pretty close to home Jersey shows to hit up the two in Alpharetta.

I'm always looking for any excuse to get down to Florida to see my daughter, and do a road trip with her. ;) Phish is her favorite band, and Alpharetta is one of my most favorite venues. If the shows are anywhere close to the ones there last year, we'll be in for another great time.  :thumbsup:

setlist indeed looked great.  I've been waiting 17 years, and over a 100+ shows to get an Alumni Blues...my 18 y/o nephew gets one at his first show.  :-\


I just got back from Hollywood>Tahoe x 2>Outsidelands and had a blast, as usual.  Good times.  They still know how to tear it up!
