Phish Exile on Main St. at Festival 8

Posted by teibs On November - 1 - 2009

setlist Phish Exile on Main St. at Festival 8@AndyShore It was apparent Phish was set to play Exile on Main Street by the time we awoke on Saturday. Our neighbors came back from the concert area with a Playbill and instantly I wanted it to be time for the Halloween set. Horn section, Sharon Jones and Shaunda Williams on back up vox, the whole shlamazel.

A video that began with “Thriller” turned into a whole mashup of the albums, songs and videos involved with the original 99 albums. “Rocks Off” kicked off Phish’s costume, with the horns already adding an exciting element. When Jones and Williams joined everyone in stage for “Tumbling Dice” a few songs later, it was clear we were in for a special evening.

The peak of the set was the fan familiar “Loving Cup.” With the added horns and vocals, it may have been the best version of that song Phish has ever played. The rest of the set is a blur of excitement and awesomeness.

Though some of the set only had the four members of Phish, side four heavily featured the horns and back up vocals. They especially shone bright during the breakdown in “Shine a Light.” Trey just stopped what he was doing to turn around and watch them do their thing, smiling ear to ear all the while. By the time the last notes of “Soul Survivor” rang out, it wouldn’t matter what Phish played in the third set. It was already my favorite Phish show of all time.

Phish Acoustic set at Phish 8 Festival

Posted by teibs On October - 28 - 2009

trey2 300x179 Phish Acoustic set at Phish 8 Festival@ZackTeibloom For the first time in over 20 years of touring, Phish is playing an all acoustic set Sunday at noon. Curious minds want to know: What are they gonna play? Will it be the acoustic songs we know well or will Trey re-work some typically electric songs?

As magical as Trey is sending shivers down your spine on electric, there’s something comforting about an entire acoustic set. Especially for a noon on Sunday after a weekend of raging. Let’s just hope Trey will be half as happy as he looked on acoustic last summer at Rothbury. Here’s a “Sample…” Read the rest of this entry »

phish8 300x182 Phish Festival 8 Halloween hype@ZackTeibloom Halloween is rapidly approaching. We’re at the “if you want facial hair as part of your costume, you’re going to need to start growing it now” phase of October. If a three-day Halloween Phish festival in California with wasn’t enough to hype you up, the official Phish Festival 8 Web site has been killing off the 99 potential albums Phish will cover one by one until just one remains for them to play at  7:30 on the 31st as their costume.

UPDATE 10/23: Van Halen is the first to go. It would have been fun to see Trey shred up some Van Halen, but it was a long shot.

Latest Phish cuts: Van Halen, Neil Young Tonight’s the Night, Curtis Mayfield, Superfly soundtrack, Steely Dan Pretzel Logic,The Police Ghost in the Machine, Frank Zappa Hot Rats, Miles Davis Jack Johnson, Rage Against the Machine Evil Empire
