My name is Pauly (a.k.a Dr. Pauly) and I created Coventry blog in August of 2004. Originally, it 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. 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).
We're music lovers and who 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.
Coventry Music is an extension of our collective personalities. It's a meeting place for our friends to celebrate our favorite musical influences. We post random news, setlists, download links, videos, pictures, cat memes, tour dates, new music and mixes. Our contributors are spread out all over America (Los Angeles, Colorado, New York, Utah, San Diego, Cincy, etc.), so we get to see a lot of different shows and music festivals. We post all of our adventures here.
If you need to contact us, drop us a line here.
You should follow us on Twitter (@CoventryMusic) because we often share cool links and provide live updates during Phish tour and other festivals.
So who exactly are we? Check out the bios of our main contributors: Dr. Pauly, The Joker, Irongirl01, Btreotch, Jonas, and Change100. Here are some of our previous contributors: G-Money, Disco Sis 1, Broseph, Kid Dynamite, Tom B, Julius Goat, Strawberry Shortcake, and Jupiter Bunny.
Thanks for stopping by Coventry. Hope to see you in the lot.
