Goodbye For Now Post

Hey Everybody,

 I just do not have the time to keep up with updating this blog these days. I have 2 kids, a job that has gotten more crazy lately, and am now going back to school full time. I just can't keep up with all that is going on with videos of Phish, TAB, Mike Gordon Band, etc to do this page justice anymore. I will continue to tweet/facebook links as much as I can but can't commit to updating this page too. Plus most of you, I'm sure know about the wonderful site http://phishvids.com/ and the various tapers that tweet their fantastic video footage of Phish.  Thank you to everybody that has helped me out along the way and to all that have enjoyed my blog!!!!!  Maybe when things slow down for me personally I will be able to once again keep this site up to date. Until then enjoy the site as it is now. 

 PEACE! Greg

Official Cut: 6/17/12 "Reba"

Phish - 6/17/12 "Reba" from Phish on Vimeo.

Phish | 06.17.12 | Bader Field - Atlantic City, NJ (HarpuaFSB playlist)

thanks HarpuaFSB!

Bader Field, Atlantic City, NJ

Soundcheck: Backwards Down the Number Line, Buffalo Bill
Set 1: Brother, Runaway Jim, Dogs Stole Things, Boogie On Reggae Woman > NICU, Foam > Wilson > Timber (Jerry), Fluffhead[1], Walls of the Cave > Character Zero
Set 2: Drowned > Also Sprach Zarathustra > Reba[2], Roses Are Free > Chalk Dust Torture > Prince Caspian[3] -> Silent in the Morning, Bug > A Day in the Life > Down with Disease[4]
Encore: Gotta Jibboo > Quinn the Eskimo
[1] Contained brief ending similar to Brother.
[2] No whistling.
[3] Unfinished.
[4] Ending similar to Brother mixed in with normal DWD ending.
Notes: For the fourth Father's Day in a row, Brother was performed and featured all of the band's children on stage and subsequent introductions (which included a Charge! from Page). After Timber, Trey sang the ending notes to Brother. Trey then said he had a trivia question for the crowd and asked "how many songs end like this?" and the band sang the ending of Brother again. He answered the question by saying the songs were My Friend, My Friend, Rift, and Brother (all of which had their endings "sung"). Trey added that tonight was special because from now on, Timber would also end with the Brother ending (which was sung again). Trey said Page could also end Lawn Boy that way from now on, prompting a Lawn Boy quote from Page. Mike then teased Ha Ha Ha. Trey went on to say that Metallica would be playing at Bader Field soon after Phish and that he didn't think they ended a single song like the ending of Brother (Trey sang the ending). Trey said if everyone wrote Metallica a note saying "Dear Metallica, please end Master of Puppets like this" (singing the ending one final time), if they got 20,000 notes, they just might do it. Fluffhead and Down With Disease subsequently had endings similar to Brother mixed in with their normal finishes. Reba did not contain the whistling ending and Caspian was unfinished.

Fishman said that he thought the ending was the greatest ending in rock history, that he loved it, and it was his favorite ending. Trey said Maze was his personal favorite, prompting quick teases of the end of Maze by himself and Page. Trey asked Page what his favorite song ending was and Page responded with Lawn Boy, which the band subsequently played. Possum contained Lawn Boy and Stash teases. Light contained a Manteca tease from Page and Crosseyed and Painless quotes. Sand and GTBT also contained Crosseyed and Painless quotes.

[3] Lyrics (sung by Trey) from Mike's Song.

Notes: This gig commemorated the 20th anniversary of the first Phish show. In the audience, a section of seats were roped off to make way for a music stand. The music stand held a three-ring binder that contained lyrics from the Phish canon, but it did not play an active role in the performance. Ya Mar contained teases of The Tra La La Song (One Banana, Two Banana). At the end of Disease, a video screen descended behind the stage. As the house lights remained down, a 25+ minute video was played featuring retrospective highlights from throughout Phish’s career. Before the second set, Mike brought out a tray of desserts and shared them with fans in front of the stage. Weekapaug was unfinished. Tweezer Reprise included lyrics (sung by Trey) from Mike’s Song. Appropriately, the post-show house music was the Beatles’ song Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band (which begins with the lyric, “It was twenty years ago today…”).

Encore: Slave to the Traffic Light

[1] Auld Lang Syne tease from Trey.
[2] Unfinished.

Notes: Fluffhead contained an Auld Lang Syne tease from Trey. Prior to Steam, a steam kettle and hot plate went off on stage, with Trey acting like he was attempting to put out the steam. Shortly after the song began, steam also came from the floor near the soundboard area. An amp (with the steam kettle on it), a keytar, a bass, a vacuum, and a few lights were then lifted off the stage. A woman in the front of the stage tossed a “Steam” sign into the front row, then rose with a barricade and security guard before eventually being lifted up over the band. Several other aerialists (clothed in various casual attire, equipped with black backpacks emitting smoke and lights on their backs) subsequently rose up from the crowd and ascended and descended several times. The first aerialist counted down to midnight, at which point balloons were released from the ceiling. The aerialists later returned with lights in their hands for Down with Disease, which also featured Trey and Mike being raised up and back down a few times before finally rising several feet on hydraulic lifts. Disease was unfinished.
