Load Up Your Bongs And Grilled Cheese Makers


Although this made news today, by the time anyone who actually enjoys Phish reads about it, we will probably be sometime into next week. Phish announced they are reuniting. The group who broke up in 2004 recently performed together at the wedding of their old road manager, and decided they really could get along well enough to make some money next year. So far they have scheduled three days in Hampton, Virginia which, although the site of one of their best live albums is not the spot one thinks of when attending a Phish concert. You would have thought they would perform somewhere outside, where people could enjoy a festival like atmosphere unconstrained by the presence of being in a city not known for anything really except a big ass tunnel.

For those of you who want to see Phish, but have visited the scenic Hampton Coliseum previously and don't wish to repeat the journey, fear not because Phish says that they will probably be hitting the road for more dates. I can tell you right now what one of those dates is going to be. It hasn't been announced formally, but they will be playing Coachella next year. Yep. You heard it here first.

Was Phish the band that you had that long personal blind about earlier this year? Anyone remember anything about that?

Enty you obviously don't listen to Phish. Actually most fans heard about this last week.

Also Hampton is EXACTLY where any phish head thinks of watching a show. The shows there were legendary as far as fans are concerned.

Also ever heard of Alan Iverson or the Michael Vick - maybe not the best thing for the area to be know for but in any case it is more than just A tunel...there are actually several :)

LOVE PHISH! I followed them in college. I was just listening to them this morning. This is great news.

THANK YOU for adding this story to your blog. We "jam" fans don't see a lot of this on "mainstream" gossip sites. I knew I loved you for a reason, Ent. Oh - and I LOVE the grilled cheese sandwiches in the lot. Yeah PHiSH!

Oh. My. God. I feel as if I know this quote inside and out. Is this from Clueless? It's gonna drive me nuts!

Mooshki said...

Ha, it's from Harold & Kumar. (I went back to my NPH icon as a clue!) I have that movie memorized. :)

Mooshki said...

Oh, and Clueless too, of course. Along with Mean Girls and Super Troopers. All one-liner gold.
