Phish has started to give us some more details of what to expect when they return to Watkins Glen this summer for Curveball, their 11th music festival. One of the major reveals so far is that they’ll be hosting a pop-up shop for extra #merch.
The JEMP Records Store will return to Curveball and will feature a vast array of vinyl releases from the band’s catalog from years past including Billy Breathes, A Live One, The White Tape, Junta, Lawn Boy, Rift, A Picture of Nectar and side project pressings.
Better than just selling the merch will be the vinyl listening stations and copies to pick up, open, read, feel and smell.
Also, this tidbit is an extra nerdy touch that only Phish can seem to get right.
Wax at a festival in the middle of August? Fear not! We will have a cold-storage merch check like we did at Magnaball to keep your vinyl records in air conditioning all weekend.
Here’s the real meat-and-potatoes of the announcement: the JEMP Records Store will also feature an exclusive, brand new Phish vinyl release of the band’s 1997 live album Slip, Stitch and Pass.
The festival version is pressed on 2 color splatter (blue and purple), foil numbered LPs and will be available along with with a Limited Edition “Slip, Stitch and Pass” screen print by Drew Millward.
If there’s any left of the limited run, it will be made available at Phish Dry Goods and in Stores (stores won’t have colored vinyl, however) later this year.
