Portsmouth1 Recap

Posted 4 years ago by bertoletdown - 18 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4fe1499a

Summer’s here and the time is right to skip the preliminaries and get right to the action. So let’s!

The band takes the stage at nTelos Wireless Pavilion just before 8pm and warms up with a perfunctory “Sample,” which gives way to the oblong Delta rhythms of “Party Time.” During the jam segment, Trey introduces Carl “Geerz” Gerhard of Giant Country Horns fame, informing the audience that Gerhard now leads music instruction for all of America’s armed forces(!). “Geerz” blows a big old solo that brings the crowd to life before taking a bow and exiting stage left to the first notes of a rare but mostly unremarkable first set “Simple.”

Video of the Week: 2010-10-31 Stash

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 7 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4fdb41d7, posted in the Video category



Well friends, here we are back in Atlantic City! Hard to believe it was 593 days ago as it seems like we were just partying there yesterday. Of all the highlights, from the Zeppelinesque show on the 30th, to the lovingly covered costume on Halloween, to the myriad of things to keep the masses entertained in Sin City East, perhaps one of the most indellible musical memories was the extraordinary Stash from the first set on Halloween. A slow patient build with gorgeous textures and layers, this Stash is not to be missed. The entire band really dials into a melodic groove that is both spellbinding and magnificent. Enjoy this Atlantic City gem and set your gearshifts for a slew more this coming weekend. Be safe and to all the fathers out there: Happy Father's Day!

Every Friday, we highlight a video with a brief recap of the show it is from and what makes it interesting, noteworthy or simply fun. With the help of Dan Saewitz from Phishvids.com, we hope to keep the stream of videos coming at you entertaining and interesting. Have a cool video you’d like to suggest?

Bonnaroo 2012 Recap

Posted 4 years ago by jwelsh8 - 34 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4fd8d151

Three songs into Kenny Rogers' set at Bonnaroo on Sunday, he expressed his gratitude to the organizers and the crowd for welcoming him to the festival. He made some quip about young fans remembering his music (blissfully unaware to the apparent hipster irony), closing with a proclamation of his intent to play every one of his hits. The tent erupted.

With Rogers, a greatest hits set is expected. He does not need to prove himself at Bonnaroo, as acts have done over the past eleven years. All attendees are expecting to hear are recognizable songs, as he has been performing for years in Branson. While Phish certainly no longer needs to prove themselves, their fans, by contrast, do expect more than a run through of the hits. Especially during a four-hour slot on what could arguably be the largest stage in live music. But other than one or two moments of surprise and adventure, Phish's show was filled with songs that simply muscled through the bigness of the event.
