Phish just kicked off Night I of their 4th of July Weekend festivities outside of Hotlanta. Our buddy Nelsorp is once again on the scene, so we hope to continue with some play-by-play updates. Plus, we’re watching along with the usual crew of phans on twitter, like YEMblog, PhishTwit, OhKeePah Blog, and Coventry Music, and tonight we’ve even got the Butter Room dudes in on the updates.
