PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I’ve never ever seen Phish in concert but a lot of my friends have and are diehards and they will often hit one, two or even three of their performances when they come through town. That’s probably my main reason for my taking a moment to scribble this up for your awareness. The second it’s because it’s a NYC Residency and we keep that Events Calendar for you to peruse with our regions happenings and that serves you better when its stockpiled to the brim. Now regarding Phish, of course I’ve seen some videos online and actually even heard some exemplary “tribute” shows that had been done over the years. These same friends had recordings from assorted trading forays. My favorite of them had to be “Dark Side Of The Moon” which I guess was from a New Year’s Eve performance since they were prone to do that sort of thing. I’m hoping to finally catch them at some point during this run and with 13 shows to choose from that should be entirely possible. What do you readers think about this tour run? Will you be heading to NYC if you are from parts further away or will you be giving the band righteous levels of sh*t for not doing a proper full national tour this year? Let me know in the comments section below.
