Lockn' 2: Sweet Virginia

Posted 9 hours ago by pzerbo - 3 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57c47b94

Phish closed out the Lockn’ Festival on Sunday night with a solid performance of mostly classic fare to cap the four-day festival that featured many of the top names in improvisational rock and roll. Phish’s headlining slot on Friday night defied the low expectations that often accompany festival performances, as Phish offered one of the most highly-regarded shows of 2016 featuring expanded treatments of fan-favorites such as “Ghost,” “Bathtub Gin,” and “You Enjoy Myself.”

Outstanding performances from many other acts throughout the weekend helped raise the bar for the finale, including standout performances by Umphrey’s McGee, Ween, My Morning Jacket, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, two different Phil Lesh and Friends ensembles (including one with Fish and Page), and two jaw-dropping late-night performances from Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. Let’s turn to the action and see how today’s jamband heavyweight champ responded.

Lockn' 1: Time To Put Your Weensuit On

Posted 2 days ago by bertoletdown - 11 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57c1b837

If you’ve been a fan for a minute, you’ve heard of “festival Phish.”

It’s the mostly pejorative term for a set that’s preciously curated for non-fans who really rolled up to see Bruce Springsteen, Matt & Kim, or some craft yoga emo battalion with seven snare drummers, five fiddles, and three artisanal washboards—but decided to stick it out and finally, passively, see what Phish is all about. These dilute sets nearly always seem to include a “Moma Dance,” a “Down With Disease,” a “Joy,” and a generous helping of unapologetic ripcords.

Posted 3 days ago by phishnet - 5 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57c05cf9

Hey Phish fans! It's me, The Book! Phish takes the stage at LOCKN' this weekend—with a free stream! Psyched? You bet I am! The kind folks who created me at The Mockingbird Foundation and phish.net ran a photo contest to celebrate my birth. Imagine, fans taking pictures of little ol' me! I'm only a little more than two months old, and already it feels like I've been everywhere!

What a summer it has been already! When you think summer—aside from Phish tour—you think the beach! My favorite beach visit this summer was to Morocco! Check out this shot of me from @YomeNetSan, who won third place in the contest! #ReadTheBook! It will save your life!

Mystery Jam Monday Part 236

Posted 1 week ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 33 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57b849b6, posted in the Audio category (1078 listens)

And then there was one. Welcome to MJM Week 236, the tenth and final week of our Hall of Champions Series, Volume I. We welcome Emeritus Champion @schvice into the recording studio, where he has picked out this week's theme and tracks, all for your listening pleasure. @schvice recently gained Emeritus status, after winning his seventh MJM in Week 232, when he successfully navigated a challenging Gamehendge-based course set by @mcgrupp81. Where once he was the bane of the Blog, foiling themes and jams thought unsolvable, now @schvice has (thankfully) gone to the Dark Side, hoping that he can lead the Blog to that elusive victory number 17. Only one way to find out: let it rip.

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three mystery jam clips, and answer what they share in common. Each person gets one attempt per day, with the second “day” starting after the Blog posts the hint -- each answer should contain three songs / dates, along with the commonality between them. No sharing or trading of answers is allowed. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. The winner will receive one MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck!

Hint:

Answer: It took a well-crafted triplet and a creative hint from the 10th and most recent MJM Emeritus @schvice, but for only the 17th time in 236 attempts, the Blog snags the W! As some users noted, the title of the video used for the hint is Mike Reed plays Groove Holmes' 1966 "Misty" up-tempo, on the Hammond Organ [emphasis mine]. The keen observer will note that the title is a play on "Mike's Groove," and the Mike in the video is certainly grooving along to the 50 year old tune; but even more fitting is the song played: "Misty." Fans well-versed in Phish's early material may recall that "I Am Hydrogen" has seldom-spoke lyrics that were used a half dozen times in the early days: "I walk awakening on the misty fields of forever." This week's "Mike's Groove" MJM consists of the 4/29/93 Weekapaug Groove, the 4/24/87 I Am Hydrogen, and the 7/12/96 Mike's Song. We'd like to once again thank @schvice and all of the MJM Emeriti for participating and crafting these awesome MJMs, and we hope to keep them involved and leverage their expertise in other ways in the future. Tune back in on Monday, when @ucpete takes over as your helping friendly host, and keep your eyes and ears peeled for some new tweaks in how the MJM is run. It has not escaped our notice that the multiclip format may be a turn-off to the unintiated, so expect a mix of classic single-clip MJMs, meta-puzzles, and other MJM shenanigans to take the sting out of Monday for everyone!

Special Thanks: I'd like to thank @ucpete for letting me be the Invisible Hand behind MJM for the past 10 weeks, helping each Emeritus Champion with crystalizing a theme, fine tuning the jam track samples, concocting the hint, and generally ensuring that the process runs smoothly. I had a blast getting to know each Emertitus Champion, and these guys, all ten, are not only great guys, but they really, really know their Phish. Thanks again @ucpete for handing the keys over and letting me take the cruise ship out for an extended journey. It was a great ride, but all good things must end, and with today's Emeritus/Blog victory (nice MJM @schvice!), I commend the MJM controls back to your good care. Enjoy what's left of summer everyone. DFB.

Reflecting on Magnaball

Posted 1 week ago by johnnyd - 5 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57ba556c

We are a year removed from the heart of Magnaball, and just over 20 years from the Clifford Ball. Similar to many of you, I'm sure, both of these events were transcendent weekends and times for me - so much more than just the incredible music and environment and people. Eye-opening, reaffiriming, and freeing. Intentionally or not, Phish created a model in Plattsburgh. And somehow they, and we, manage to keep improving on it.

Mystery Jam Monday Part 235

Posted 2 weeks ago by Dog_Faced_Boy - 10 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57ad3210, posted in the Audio category (873 listens)

Welcome to week nine of the Hall of Champions Series, the 235th installment of Mystery Jam Monday. This week, our honorary guest host is seven-time winner @WayIFeel, who recently joined the ranks of the Emeritus Club after solving @PersnicketyJim's tricky theme involving songs written by each individual band member. Now it's @WayIFeel's turn to play the riddler, and here we go.

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three mystery jam clips, and answer what they share in common. Each person gets one attempt per day, with the second “day” starting after the Blog posts the hint -- each answer should contain three songs / dates, along with the commonality between them. No sharing or trading of answers is allowed. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. The winner will receive one MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck!

Hint: No hint needed.

Answer: Congratulations to @andrewrose, who nailed his third MJM victory after correctly identifying the theme: cover songs; and the tracks: the 7/31/98 Cities, the 12/8/99 Ya Mar, and the 8/21/87 Skin It Back. Although he's won twice previously, @andrewrose has been on a MJM victory hiatus of sorts since 2012, so it's great to have him back in the winner's circle. Thanks again to @WayIFeel for hosting a very enjoyable round, the penultimate edition of the Summer 2016 Hall of Champions MJM Series. Please join us next week as our tenth and final Emeritus Champion, @schvice serves up the MJM 236 fare. And have your MJM skills finely honed, because @schvice has grown weary of watching the Blog get crushed week in and week out, and he's come up with a MJM worthy of his Emeritus Champion status.

Mystery Jam Monday Part 234

Posted 3 weeks ago by ucpete - 19 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/57a834f0, posted in the Audio category (1291 listens)

Welcome to the 234th edition of Mystery Jam Monday. Continuing with our Hall of Fame Series this week, allow myself to introduce... myself -- the eighth of the ten seven-time MJM winners. I forced myself into retirement after a one week reunion tour during this very stretch of the MJM Emeritus Editions, and will crawl back into the shadows for a couple more weeks so the great and knowledgable @Dog_Faced_Boy can finish off his fantastic guest hosting stint of this now ten-week stretch of Hall of Fame MJM competitions.

To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of each of the three mystery jam clips, and answer what they share in common. Each person gets one attempt per day, with the second “day” starting after the Blog posts the hint -- each answer should contain three songs / dates, along with the commonality between them. No sharing or trading of answers is allowed. A hint will be posted on Tuesday if necessary, with the answer to follow on Wednesday. The winner will receive one MP3 code good for a free download of any show, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. Good luck!

Hint:
Trying to make a contest that you lose
And the setlist doesn't mention vacuum

Answer: Congrats to @12_29_97_4eva who wins his second consecutive (and third overall) MJM by correctly identifying the 8/13/93 Bathtub Gin, the 12/10/94 Weekapaug Groove, and the 11/29/97 Runaway Jim, tied together by the fact they were all Weekapaug Jams. Tune back in on Monday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET for the penultimate edition of the MJM Hall of Fame series, when @WayIFeel takes the reins and plays the game from this side of the fence for the first time.
