It was a magical Halloween night in Pennsylvania. We went to Halloween Freak Fest at the LNC which was brought to us by Circle D Productions and featured Dogs In A Pile with special guests PanSong feat. Members of Out of the Beardspace. The festival sure lived up to its name! There were vendors, fireworks, a costume contest, and hours of music under a Blue Moon! The venue did an incredible job of enforcing social distancing while still creating such a unique musical experience.(more…)
The Allman Betts Band continued their “Bless Your Heart” tour in Bethel, PA on Friday. The Pat Garret Amphitheater is way out there. The venue is comprised of a huge stage in a wide-open field with luscious green grass. It is surrounded by farms and forest and we stood under a sparkling starry sky. It was set up for social distancing and there were grids clearly marked. Everyone was happy with plenty of space to enjoy the feels. I was happy to see that all of the guidelines were being followed, and it felt close to normal. We have been lucky to have music during the time of Covid but in some cases that “feeling” is rare. I felt that “feeling” on Friday night.(more…)
Jon Fishman, the famed drummer of Phish and selectman of Lincolnville, Maine joined forces with Lauren Lareau, a candidate for Pennsylvania State Representative for a night of virtual fun on zoom this past Sunday. The zoom meeting took place in the evening, entry required a ticket, and all ticket sales were donated to Lauren Lareau’s campaign. Tickets included different tiers. The higher tiers included a picture of Lauren painted by incredible artist Anita Goodsel Thomas, and was signed by Jon Fishman. It is amazing to watch people working together and using their talents for good.
Lauren Lareau is a brilliant teacher, amazing parent, experienced activist, successful tutor, member of the township environmental advisory council, a 1.0 phish fan….t...
Earlier in quarantine, Phish announced their archival video series "Dinner And A Movie". The short hand concept: airing a full show in its entirety for free beginning each Tuesday evening at 8:30 ET via the bands Facebook page. The band will then select a non-profit doing important work right now and all donations made that day via The Water Wheel Foundation will be donated to the cause chosen. Alongside the show would be a recipe provided by the band or one of it's individual members for fans to cook for their enjoyment with the band emphasizing that there is no need to go to the grocery store to get any more materials and encouraging fans to get creative.(more…)
Phish in Mexico Night 2 kicked off with “Turtle in the Clouds”, a perfect beach show opener and a song that always gets everybody pumped up and ready. Last year in Mexico they played it on the second night but in the second song slot and changed the lyrics from “dancing on the hillside” to “dancing on the shoreline”. This year they did not change it and I yelled “shoreline” instead of “hillside”.(more…)
