Mystery Jam Monday Part 86

Posted 4 years ago by lumpblockclod - 27 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f390a63, posted in the Audio category (756 listens)

Welcome to the 86th Mystery Jam Monday here at Phish.net. As usual, we will be playing for a free MP3 download, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. The rules haven't changed: you need to correctly identify the song and the date to win. Post your guess in the comments. One guess per person per day (with the second “day” starting after I post the hint). A hint will be posted on Tuesday (if necessary) and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Good luck...

Wednesday Answer: Squalie takes it this week with the 8/16/93 "Weekapaug." To the extent anyone out there hasn't heard this whole show, by all means, do so immediately. And then work in both directions until you've experienced the full majesty of August '93 from Tampa to Berkeley. The Blog will be back on Monday with another Mystery Jam.

Trey Anastasio Orchestral: A Brief History

Posted 4 years ago by pzerbo - 6 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f340ab6

Trey Anastasio kicks-off his sold-out Winter 2012 Orchestral Tour tonight at Symphony Hall in Atlanta with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Scott Dunn conducting. The tour also includes performances with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra on February 14, the Colorado Symphony on February 28, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic on March 10.

Anastasio has a rich history of orchestral performances spanning over a decade. Anastasio made his orchestral debut with the Vermont Youth Orchestra on February 2, 2001 in Troy, NY (reprised two nights later at The Flynn Theatre in Burlington), with Troy Peters conducting. This performance included two compositions by Trey’s mentor, the late Ernie Stires, “Chat Rooms” and “Samson Riffs.” The highlight of these shows was the orchestral debut of “Guyute” that reintegrated the song’s original elements that would – in the Phish repertoire – evolve as “My Friend, My Friend.” These performances were capped by renditions of “The Inlaw Josie Wales” with Trey on acoustic guitar.

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 30 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f316e43

Last year, we blogged about "The Spreadsheet" and talked a bit about Kevin's tireless and unrelenting quest to provide this invaluable tool to the fan community. Working selflessly & quietly, Kevin has continued to update & add to this amazing set of links including side shows. At some point last night, Kevin reports that the spreadsheet has surpassed the absolutely incredible goal of 1,000,000 downloads. All of that in less than three years. Stunning.

To give you an idea of how many downloads are done from the spreadsheet, and how many fans use it: As of Noon today, the download count was already up to 1,001,032.

Posted 4 years ago by lumpblockclod - 13 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f2f5911, posted in the Audio category (772 listens)

Welcome to the Mystery Jam Monday LXXXV here at Phish.net. Let's hope this doesn't suck as much as watching the Giants win the Super Bowl. As usual, we will be playing for a free MP3 download, courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. The rules haven't changed: you need to correctly identify the song and the date to win. Post your guess in the comments. One guess per person per day (with the second “day” starting after I post the hint). A hint will be posted on Tuesday (if necessary) and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Good luck... unless you're a Giants fan.

Tuesday Hint: No hint needed this week.

Wednesday Answer: Congrats to Phish and Giants fan ghostboogie for guessing the 4/8/94 "It's Ice" (specifically, the "Digital Delay Loop Jam"). Gloat all you want but, any way you slice it, Eli Manning is still 0-for-85 at the Mystery Jam. See you all next Monday...

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 5 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f2b69d9, posted in the Video category



We've been remiss. Over the last six months or so we've highlighted some incredible videos on our weekly Video of the Week blog post. In so doing some of the most prolific YouTube uploaders have had their videos featured including HarpuaFSB, mkdevo, and Silverchair97. Another videographer that has some pretty stellar videos is telekinetica. Here is the amazing Down with Disease from 1995-06-26. While unfinished, this monster clocks in at over 20 minutes and rightfully gets highlighted on the Disease jamming chart. Check it out, and by all means, leave a thumbs up or a positive comment on the YouTube page of this vid. These guys selflessly film and upload so we can all enjoy.

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? Interested in contributing a review yourself? Submit ideas here.

Video of the Week: 1991-10-15

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 5 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f2213ef, posted in the Video category



It is funny how videos surface after long periods of time. It always piques the interest of what other gems lay out there waiting to be discovered. Such was the case earlier this week when Chalkdust Torture from 1991-10-15 appeared on YouTube. Though just debuted earlier in the year at the shortened show from 1991-02-01 at Brown University, Chalkdust was already a setlist veteran and in heavy rotation. The prior show was the Olympia Gamehenge show from 1991-10-13. Sadly, the uploader has not much more of the show, barring a few minutes of the opening to "Foam", as he was asked to stop taping.
