Phish Friday: Phortin Friday Updates
A few quick updates on this Phriday because show time is upon us!
First up, The Phish from Vermont tackle the only southern portion of this brief fall tour @ North Charleston Coliseum in Charleston, SC this evening. After the mixed results in Broomfield, this Friday/Saturday combo of shows could and should provide a great setup for the final nine Northeast shows. Over @phishnet, some fans have started a campaign on Twitter to #continuethemeatstick. When the lights go out, start the chorus…
Second, this great video interview of Trey Anastasio discussing being a musician (and glowstick wars of all things) just dropped on the net. I’ve heard this is part of few interviews for an upcoming film entitled, MUSIC. A very worthy watch.
Third, we can’t go too long in a Phish piece without referencing Halloween. Coming off Trey’s recent comments in LA Times that they band is definitely practicing for a musical costume, our friends over @dogoneblog highlighted an interesting excerpt from a 2004 Jan/Dec Issue of Relix Magazine. In the past, Trey’s choices have been Brian Eno’s Another Green World & Bob Dylan & The Band Basement Tapes. Hmmmm…
Lights go down any minute, and the crowd is already singing “Meatstick.” COUCH TOUR 2010!
