It's time for the 88th installment of the Mystery Jam Monday series 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...

Tuesday Hint: No hint needed this week...

Wednesday Answer: Pauly7917 gets his fifth win with the 11/14/94 "Bowie." Congrats. The Blog will be back on Monday with another Mystery Jam.

Interview: Aaron Wolfe

Posted 4 years ago by Lemuria - 4 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f47f3ca

In August 2000, Jay Kahn (RIP) and Ellis Godard interviewed Aaron Wolfe. The following exerpts were published in the first edition of The Phish Companion.

EG & JK: What do you remember most about Princeton Day School and the folks you went to school with?

Aaron Wolfe: Princeton was a pretty quiet, homogeneous place. But even then we knew that the suburbs created the best rock and roll. That's why we all took up the air guitar with such dedication.

Tom and I formed an air guitar band called, unbelievably, "A Dot Tom" – decades before the Internet and the assault of the "dot.coms." The songs were mostly adaptations of other people's songs. Neil Young's “Cinnamon Girl” was remade – without reason whatsoever – as “Michaelson Girl.” Some were inspired by things we saw outside the windows of our Latin class.

EG & JK: What's your first memory of Tom Marshall?

Video of the Week: 2011-06-10

Posted 4 years ago by tmwsiy - 8 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4f4707ff, posted in the Video category



We've pretty much focused on clips from older shows the last several months of Video of the Week. Yet fun moments happen at every show. Such was the case with 06/10/2011 in Camden at Susquehanna Bank Center.

Despite generally mixed reviews, 6/10/11 had a handful of highlights. There's a solid Weekapaug jam and a beautiful rendition of The Curtain With to close the first set (something that, along with The Curtain, had never been done before).

Another highlight for many was a fun Big Black Furry Creature From Mars. About 1:50 in to the video, Trey raises his microphone simultaneously with Mike lowering his. Eventually, Mike sits down and Trey raises his head as they shriek out the remainder of Creature. Clearly, the music is what made Phish. But there's no denying the fact that a little dose of showmanship and having fun on stage help build the legend.

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?

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.

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.
