My name is Dr. Pauly (a.k.a @taopauly) and I created Coventry blog in August of 2004. Originally, this became a forum my friends to share stories about the final Phish shows at Coventry, Vermont before the band broke. I also created this website for my close Phishhead friends who could not attend Coventry and see Phish one final time. My specific writing goal was to make those friends feel like they were actually there.
I know, it's weird. This blog is named after the worst shows in the history of Phish. I never intended to ever use it again once the band broke up. But... shit happens, and Phish miraculously reunited in 2009 and all hell broke loose. When Phish announced their reunion shows in Hampton, I decided to keep the name to remind ourselves how lucky we are that Phish is back touring and making music.
Coventry Music has evolved into what you see today... a blog that focuses on Phish and our favorite music. We expanded into Twitter (@CoventryMusic), Instagram (@CoventryMusic), and podcasting (Wook Patrol).
Coventry Music is not just a blog, or a social media feed. It's a venue for friends and strangers to celebrate our favorite musical influences. We post random news, setlists, art, (download) links, videos, pictures, cat memes, tour dates, new music and mixes. Our contributors are spread out all over America (Los Angeles, Colorado, Austin, New York, etc.), so we get to see a lot of different shows and music festivals.
Coventry Music is not a crew, a clique, or a scene. We're just an eclectic mix of music lovers. We love to have a groovy time at
shows and festivals. We don't take ourselves too seriously. We're Phish
fanatics, but we don't take their music for granted. Phish is what you
make of it, but it's supposed to be fun. Never forget that.
So who exactly are we? Pauly (a.k.a @taopauly) launched this blog in 2004. Shortly after, the Joker (a.k.a. @Neillybop) joined the ranks and helped expand the blog in the dark days before Phish returned for 3.0.
Check out the bios of our main contributors: Dr. Pauly, The Joker, Irongirl01, Btreotch, Jonas, and Change100. Over the years, we had contributions from: Shamus, G-Money, Disco Sis 1, Broseph, Kid Dynamite, Tom B, Julius Goat, Fink, and Jupiter Bunny.
Thanks for stopping by Coventry. Hope to see you in the lot.
