By now you’ve probably gotten yourself caught up on Phish’s epic New Year’s Eve concert that went down in Miami to close out their four-night run. As always, Phish had a gag planned for the festivities above and beyond the massive balloon drop that occurs ever year. The band released an official video of how it went off…

Statistics and general opinion aside, there’s no denying that Phish just wrapped up a banner year in their history and I’m pleased to say that I got to witness ten shows in the process. Here’s the setlist courtesy of Phish.net…
