JB Interview


Check out an interview with John Bell called Widespread Panic - Tickling the Truth with JB written by Shane Handler from Glide Magazine. He touches on many topics including charity work, lyrical inspiration, Mikey's passing, and the new blood that Jimmy Herring added to the mix.

Here's a bit:
As far as taking a back seat, or lightening up on the attack, I think when you get somebody who is as experienced as Jimmy is, you’re working with somebody who is what I think is an appropriate mindset, like somebody like a Carlos Santana or back in the day, Jerry Garcia. You speak with your guitar. You say what you needed to say and you didn’t have to play yourself with a lot of nervous chatter, you already know how to express yourself. So a lot of times, that includes chording and the beautiful melodic chord changes that he came up with. That stuff to me is even harder to achieve than “shredding.” Sometimes it sounds like he’s playing two guitars at once....

Today in Phishtory: 2.28.03 Nassau


Five years ago today, Phish played a heady show on Long Island. I was there. Here's the setlist...
2.28.03 Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY

Set I: Birds of a Feather, Destiny Unbound, Horn, Bathtub Gin, Sleep, Back On The Train, Bouncing Around the Room, Walls of the Cave

Set II: Tweezer, Soul Shakedown Party > David Bowie, Round Room > Harry Hood

Encore: Contact, Mexican Cousin, Tweezer Reprise

Notes: Destiny Unbound last played 11.15.91
I originally wrote the following recap on my main blog five years ago. I'm reposting it. Enjoy!

* * * * *

28 Feb 03

We met up with Spider and Gil at Penn Station and took the LIRR to the Island. Molly was shocked to see people drinking single cans of beer in brown paper bags on the commuter train. "It's routine, in many ways ritualistic for the male suburban commuter," I explained, "in the morning it's coffee, in the evening it's a Bud tallboy."

While we waited for Spider to get his car, Gil took us on a short walk through historic Port Washington, and over to Long Island Sound. We got to the venue very quickly, and we were greeted at the entrance to the parking lot by dozens of kids looking for tickets for the show. Our seats were the best for all three shows, right next to the side of the stage, where Page plays. The bad part was the nazi, arrogant, yet ineffective old man security guard in our section. Crowd control was a problem at a couple of points before the show and during the first set, with everyone trying to sneak down to the floor, but it eased off after a while.

I ran into several Japhamily at this show... Previn and Chris walked by us as we sat in our seats. I also got called Dave Grohl by some dosed out guy.

Phish opened the show with a heady Birds of a Feather, and followed with a truly rare Destiny Unbound! This show was going to be all Mike, and that was a way to get it off right. A crusty Phishkid, who'd been to every show (on that tour) since Vegas, was twirling in the aisle next to me and said, "Brah, they haven't played this song all this tour."

"This tour?" I exclaimed, "They haven't played this since you were in the third grade!"

The last time Phish performed Destiny Unbound was in November of 1991 in Virginia.

Molly was stuck in the bathroom for Horn, and I was an asshole to two guys standing behind me who didn't have tickets in the section. They were yapping during Horn, and I turned around and asked one guy what his name was.

"Steve Edlestien? Good, Steve, cause when I write up the review of this show and post it on the net, I want to make sure I spell your name right, since you're the ass face who talked about your boring personal life during the entire first set and ruined my show."

He gave me a dirty look, but took the hint. I stood my ground and he took off as soon as the song ended.

Molly missed the beginning of Bathtub Gin, but she got back just as they were about to peak for the set, that is until the boys blew me away with Back on the Train. It was by far the best version I heard to date, and was the best Phish I heard since their return. It was Trey bluesy, Mike funky, Fish groovy, and Page mellow all rolled into one savory twelve minute song.

I bolted for the bathroom during Bouncin' Around the Room, which was dubbed the Pauly Takes a Piss Song for the night. I also had enough time to buy a pretzel and a beer before the song ended.

Walls of the Cave closed the first set, and was the first repeat we heard this run. This Walls was a more solid version than at the Philly show, if it was hard to better that version. It was cool to be fairly up close to see Page's piano intro.

"Listen to the silent trees..."

At setbreak this Guido looking Long Island guy walked up to me and asked me if I like vodka.

"Hey tough guy, yous like vodka?" he spouted.

"Why of course," I muttered, as he handed me an airport bottle of Smirnoff.

Now we had booze to make vodka tonics, and Molly observed, "Do people always give you things at Phish shows?"

Counting the joint at the NJ show, the free hugs from the rolling girl at the Philly show, and now the vodka, I guess she was right. Random people give me cool shit all the time.

Second set opened with a 26 plus minute heavy ass Tweezer. In the beginning during the down parts of the jam, Chris Kuroda turned down the lights, and a couple of mini glow wars erupted on the floor during each down moment. Alas, Tweezer was long and dark, and all Mike.

Next up was Reggae Phish. I thought they were going to play two or three different songs before they bust into Bob Marley's Soul Shakedown Party. It was the first time they played it since Milan, Italy in 1997. Soul Shakedown Party is a rare song, only performed three times prior. The groove was there, the vocals were spotty, but it didn't matter.

Phish had a spacey three-minute intro to David Bowie where I had hoped they would break out into 2001, but they didn't just teased it once or twice before a solid Bowie, and of course Trey smoked the shit out of the end.

Harry Hood was the second repeat for us this tour, and again this night's version was more solid than the one we saw in New Jersey. The last time I saw Phish at Nassau Coliseum, it was back in 1999, during the infamous Boogie glowstick show, when our favorite Buffalo blonde hurled a glowstick from our seats behind the stage, and it came crashing down onto Page's piano. A large clacking thud, which forever immortalized Boogie onto bootlegs worldwide, was spinning in my ears the entire song, as my thoughts drifted to Boogie and that epic night. At one point during the glow war, I looked over at Page precisely at the moment a kid in the fifth row threw a glowstick at him. Page ducked to the side, not stopping his piano playing, and kept on jamming out. A small safety hazard, that I guess comes with the job.

Finally the pharmies kicked in. I traded a couple of nugs for pharmies with some kid in our row from Boulder during setbreak, and I eventually started to feel that nice, warm, faded feeling. The boys treated us to a three song encore: Contact, Mexican Cousin, and Tweezer Reprise. I became enamored with Mexican Cousin.

"I'm awful sorry you got pissed..."

At first I liked it as a joke song, but after hearing it live, I was hooked.

"And Tequila's where that starts and where it ends!"

The yellow lights on the crowd, and the way they reacted to the song translated to me as a special moment.

"Mexican Cousin again... I wanna, wanna kiss your oooooooooooooh!"

I walked out of Nassau satisfied with the short three show run. I got to see my favorite song Slave in Philly, and hear the boys play some solid new stuff. I saw two kick ass solid back-to-back shows, something I hadn't experienced since Las Vegas or in Albany on the 2000 Fall tour, and got to share these shows with Molly, who almost never gets to see her favorite band.

Bring Out Your Emerald Dead-Dye

For a limited time only (thru March 31st) Dead Net is offering these two St Patrick's Day inspired Tees/dyes for $22 each. Personally, I like the vintage Boston 77 Steal Your Face commemorating the band's run at The Boston Garden, a venue I never saw the Dead at. The other Shirt is a Celtic design with roses (I believe) intertwined around a Stealie.

Today in Phishtory: 2.26.97 Stuttgart, Germany

Eleven years ago today, Phish played in Stuttgart, Germany. It was a special show because of four bust out songs that was not in their rotation. The boys performed Magilla for the first time since 5.4.94 or 260 shows. They opened with Camel Walk, which they had not played since 7.2.95 or 140 shows. In addition, the last time Phish played Dog Log and a cover version of the Beatles While My Guitar Gently Weeps since 12.11.95 or roughly 90 shows.

And yeah, that first set Carini was only the third time they played it.

Here's the setlist:
2.26.97 Longhorn, Stuttgart, Germany

Set I: Camel Walk, Llama, My Friend My Friend, Harry Hood, My Soul, Tube > Carini, Rocko William, Dog Log, While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Set II: Buried Alive, Poor Heart, Ha Ha Ha, You Enjoy Myself > Kung, Theme from the Bottom, Scent of a Mule > Jam > Magilla > Scent of a Mule, Slave to the Traffic Light

Encore: Highway to Hell

Juno Soundtrack

I am sure that you watched the Oscars last night. Diablo Cody won the Oscar for best original screenplay. In 2001-2002ish I was on a group blog called Thinking of Hesterman, which included a girl named Brooke. I have lost touch with the people on the blog, and the blog does not exist anymore.

I now know that Brooke went on to start her own blog, Pussy Ranch, created the name Diablo Cody as a stage name for her peepshows/topless dancing, and continued blogging and writing. Now she has an Oscar. Pretty amazing. Good job, Diablo Cody!


I hope you will enjoy the Juno soundtrack and do something to work closer to your dream, whatever that may be.

Donna Jean: Right Place, Right Time


I always felt that the Grateful Dead achieved perfection in 1977. Donna Jean and her husband, the late Keith Godchaux, were in the Dead for nine years including that magical 1977.

I got caught up in a great article on JamBase.com titled Donna Jean: Right Place, Right Time by Ann Marie Svilar. Check it out.

Here's an excerpt:
"Getting to be in The Grateful Dead, being in the right place at the right time, and having the experiences that I did in that band, the incredible privilege of being a part of Jerry Garcia's life for almost nine years and to be in his presence. He was one of the major influences of my life and the direction that it would take" says Donna Jean. "He was very influential on me in so many ways, musically and philosophically. I learned probably more from him than anybody in my whole life."

Anyway, according to Phantasy Phish, Mike Gordon returned to his roots. He sat in with Melvin Sparks on February 16th. Check out the fatty bass in this video.

Best Coffeeshop in Amsterdam: Grey Area


Greetings from Amsterdam.

I spent time in one of my favorite places on Earth... the Grey Area coffeeshop. When I lived in Amsterdam over the summer, our canal apartment was a couple of blocks from Grey Area.

My brother first told me about the tiny place when he visited Europe in 2001. It was owned by Americans. They had bongs. Played great music. And you could by quarters and ounces.

The walls were originally mirrors that have been covered by stickers, including all of your favorite Jambands. There's even a sticker from Illegal Pete's in Boulder. Also, you'll find a picture up on the wall of Phish hanging out in Grey Area.

I first checked out Grey Area in September of 2005, and got quickly hooked on the Grey Haze. Here's a sample:


And here's a quick photo montage of some of my favorite Grey Area photos. Enjoy.

Guest DJ Thom Yorke

The NPR All Songs Considered podcast is simply a downloadable mp3 of the broadcast, but who can keep track of NPR broadcast schedules. Most of the time host Bob Boilen plays new tracks, or may be plays off a theme; he also does a good job at incorporating audience input. I was real excited to see that they got Thom Yorke to sit down and talk about some of his music and other's that have influenced him - I just can't my fill of Radiohead. Also cool to learn that Thom really digs MF Doom's stuff (as he should), but is a Frank Zappa n00b (as he shouldn't). NPR's show description reads:

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke shares some of his favorite music with All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen. The two talk about Radiohead's latest work, In Rainbows and listen to some of the artists Yorke admires, including German electronica group Modeselektor, rap collaboration Madvillain, techno duo Autechre and more.
Here is a link to the particular show where you can stream the interview and listen to all the songs Thom plays , otherwise log on and subscribe to the free podcast. If anyone is interested in the Madvillain/MF Doom stuff, I think I can up that for d/l.

CNN enters the 9th Dimension and The Joker's Favorite STS9 Mix

The other day someone sent me the link to the STS9 video/interview on CNN.com. I think it made me realize how far Sound Tribe Sector 9 has come and made me reminiscence a little bit.

The first time I saw STS9 was at a late night stage at Bonnaroo 2003. I saw them a few times in 2004, and by 2005 I was in Colorado and a full-fledged STS9 fan.

I have compiled a mix of my favorite STS9 performances. This is a mix of songs that made a big impact on me at the actual show- the songs that I was talking about the next day. STS9 in 2008 is favoring more of their hip-hop/glitch influenced sound...this mix of performances of the '05-'07 era favors songs that have Hunter's long guitar lines in focus.

The Mix:
DOWNLOAD The Joker's Favorite STS9 Performances 05-07


RoyGbiv>Monkey Music (Vegoose '05, House of Blues, Late night)-
Roygbiv is actually a Boards of Canada cover, but I think that the STS9 version is better. This was played for the encore of the late night show at the 2005 Vegoose at the House of Blues. I love the long melodic lines in Roygbiv and the simplicity of the guitar line in Monkey Music.

Late night Vegoose '05 is a memorable show for me because it was a show I went to on my own after Pauly decided to get some rest- it started at 1am. I was very excited to see STS9 that night, and there were a lot of kids looking for extras to the show. I ended up selling my ticket to a kid from Truckee, CA. We were in assigned seats on the first row of the balcony- before the show started he was looking for his girlfriend in the crowd on the floor. We were able to find her by making bird calls from the balcony. It was a very fun show and many of the stories you kinda had to be there. The whole show and especially this encore was in heavy rotation on my iPod for months afterward.

F.Word (The Fillmore, Denver, Jan '06)
According to a friend of mine who has been seeing STS9 a lot longer than I have F.Word started out as "jam in F". I remember never paying much attention to this song until this show; something in it that night clicked in me. I love Hunter's guitar in this version...F.Word makes me think of a lot of skiing and good times in Colorado every time I listen to it.

Ramone & Emiglio (9/06 The Fox Theater, Boulder)
The Fox 9/8/06 was the night before STS9's first time headlining Red Rocks. They played a lot of older songs that night, and this is one of my favorites. Ramone & Emiglio is my favorite song on Season's '01 (the first STS9 disc I ever got). '01-'04 versions of this song often clocked in at over 20 minutes; this version is tightened up without losing any of its muscle.


Music,Us
(9/06 Red Rocks)
As many of you know, Red Rocks is a beautiful place and for me Music, Us seems to fit well with Red Rocks. Music, Us is my favorite off of Artifact and it was a great feeling to hear it at Red Rocks. Interestingly enough, this is the only song in the mix that features (sampled) vocals.

Orbital (Vegoose '06, The Hard Rock Casino, Late Night show)
This is the infamous "Disco Santa" show...I wore a Santa suit to the show with glitter and a disco ball on my cap. Pauly and Change 100 left at setbreak, and during the first part of the second set I ended up dancing with some kids dressed up as Ziggy Stardust, Rainbow Brite, and Alice in Wonderland...those 3 are now some of my best friends, and we met during this performance of Orbital.

Water Song (Boulder Theater, 3/07, night 5 of the 5 night run)
In spring of '07 I went to Langerado and then came back to Colorado where STS9 had decided to put on a run of 5 nights at the Boulder Theater. I ended up making it to 3 out of the 5. Interestingly enough, this Water Song is one of my favorites but it is in the middle of a set of glitchy shit that I hated. Water Song is a great performance and for me it was a crazy night- we were also celebrating St. Patrick's day.

MaxCreek



For those of you never exposed to this NorthEast Band you don't know what you are missing. This (Orange Sunshine) just happens to be one of my favorite Creek Songs. It is also a montage of past and present MaxCreek Alumni.

Although the Creek have covered many a Dead tune, they are way more then a cover band. In fact most of my favorite Creek songs are all originals. I've seen them all over the NorthEast including Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts yet I dont believe Ive ever seen a Creek show in New York!!

The band will be celebrating their 37th anniversary at CreekEnd April 18th and 19th at Eastover Resort in Lenox Massachusetts. I attended the Saturday night show of CreekEnd last year after almost 19 years of not catching them live. I was amazed that Mark Mercier was still as nimble on the keyboards and could remember all the lines of Tangled Up in Blue. BFF Kim and I had a great time and I even got a shout-out from Scott for a blog post I had put up on my Irongirl01 blog (although he thought my username was DirtyGirl... (sounds better doesnt it!!)

Sympathy for the Devil is one of my favorite covers. I honestly think Greg Vasso can do this as good if not better then Mick.



And for you Phish freaks Phish has covered MaxCreek's Back Porch Boogie Blues!!

Enjoy!!

Tracklist for Scarlett Johansson's Album of Tom Waits Covers...Revealed!


The track listing for actress Scarlett Johansson's debut album-- a collection of Tom Waits covers-- was unveiled this week at a listening party for journalists at NYC's Joe's Pub. Titled "Anywhere I Lay My Head", the disc will be released May 20th via Atco/Rhino.

Members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Celebration guest on some of the tracks, while David Bowie lends his vocals to two songs-- "Falling Down" and "Fannin' Street." One Johansson original, titled "Song for Jo" also appears on the recording.

Johansson has no plans to tour in support of the album at this point, though she hasn't ruled out a festival appearance this summer.

Here's the track list:

"Fawn"
"Town With No Cheer"
"Falling Down"
"Anywhere I Lay My Head"
"Fannin' Street"
"Song for Jo"

Phish News: Mike & Fish at The Rothbury Festival; Fish Joins Yonder


According to Phish.com, John Fishman will be playing with Yonder Mountain String Band for two gigs at the end of the month. You can catch Fish sitting in with YMSB on Feb 20th in Columbus, OH and on Feb 21st in Asheville, NC.

In other Phishy news, Fish and Mike will be performing at The Rothbury Festival. Brought to you by AEG Live (promoters from Coachella) and from Madison House, the Rothbury Festival will be held in Rothbury, Michigan on July 3rd through 6th at the idyllic Double JJ Ranch near Lake Michigan. According to the press release, "The festival’s goal is to draw attention to climate change and clean energy alternatives."

Tickets go on sale Feb. 27th over at the official site for Rothbury.

Some of the artists include... Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Widespread Panic, Phil Lesh & Friends, Modest Mouse, STS9, and Snoop Dogg.

Nice mix. Too bad I won't be able to make it.

Built to Spill

I was really into Built to Spill around 2000-2002, then it seems like I forgot about them, and now I am very excited to see them at Langerado. They are a consistently rocking indie rock band. I think that they kick a little more ass than some of the other bands that are usually lumped into the genre. Plus, you can't deny that Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Doug Martsch has a beard that any hippie would be proud of.

Check out their 2006 effort, "You In Reverse" DOWNLOAD (m4p).
and my personal favorite, "Keep it Like a Secret" (.rar)

Topic: Transcendental Post Hiatus Jams

A PTer named "Gordeaux" started a rather quality thread at the Phantasy Tour message boards titled Transcendental Post Hiatus Jams. These are the types of posts I look for on PT, but seem to find too rarely. It's still a great resource for music, player haters and internet tough guys.

Anyhow, I took the liberty of tabulating all the uploads from the first hundred posts or so. If you just want to hit one BIG one, check the Jambient Mix 2003:

Change100's Guide to Surviving Coachella

I've made two trips to the Coachella Music & Arts Festival in my time-- back in 2002 when Bjork headlined, and in 2004-- the infamous Radiohead year. This year's lineup especially entices me-- the return of Portishead, Roger Waters playing Dark Side, My Morning Jacket, The National, Sasha & Digweed for a little of the untz untz, John Butler Trio, Rilo Kiley, Jens Lekman-- even that rich fucker Jack Johnson and random bands like Architecture in Helsinki and that new British chick singer Kate Nash appeal to me. I'm genuinely torn over going this year. I can't do the whole three days, that's for sure, but Showcase and I are leaning toward an appearance on Sunday night for Waters and MMJ.

I've put together a little guide for Coventry readers that may be Coachella virgins. It's a unique festival with a lot of quirks and I hope I can help to de-mystify a little of it for you.


Consider Ticket Packages and Accommodations


The three-day pass goes for $269.00 while single-day tickets are available for $90.00 a pop. Camping passes are $55.00, but come on, do you really want to sweat your ass off in a tent for three days and nights? It's the desert, people. You're much better off getting a nice air-conditioned room in nearby Indio or Palm Desert. I stayed at the Indian Palms Resort back in 2002 and it was the nuts. Nice rooms, a pool and walking distance to the venue. No waiting in line with all those L.A. douchebags lined up off the freeway for hours just to get in the lot. They're doing a special deal for Coachella for $353.00 per person for the entire weekend. Rooms are still available so get on it. The Motel 6 in Indio is always a perpetual party and a good option for those on a budget who don't want to camp. I've also stayed at the Country Inn & Suites in Rancho Mirage (in 2004), an easy drive from the venue.

The official Coachella site also has a list of area hotels that is very helpful.

Consider the Security Presence

I've been to festivals around the country (Bonnaroo, Langerado and the like) and Coachella's security is by far the most buzz-killing. Expect a very thorough search of your bag as you enter the venue. Camelpacks are a no-no. Chairs are a no-no. If they think your backpack is too large, they'll make you take it back to your car. And the backpack that got in on Friday may not get back in on Saturday in the face of a hot, pissed-off security guard. Hide your shit well. Don't even attempt to smuggle in liquor because they'll rid you of anything liquid or glass before you set food on the Empire Polo Field.

Consider Wireless Connections

Consider yourself warned-- the cell phone reception situation inside the venue is downright lousy. Expect a lot of dropped calls and spots where you get no bars at all. If you're with a group, pick out a default spot on the first day to meet in case you get separated and can't get your phones to work.

Consider Remembering Where You Parked Your Car

Don't be like me-- wandering around the lots at 2 AM forgetting where the fuck you parked. If my memory serves me right, the rows and aisles are not labled so either (a) accurately count the number of cars between you and a stationary object (like a tree, just remember which one) or (b) fly some big gay flag above your vehicle to make it easily recognizable to your spun-out self after 12 hours of heady tunes.

Consider Cash

All food and beverage transactions are cash only. There are ATMs aplenty, though both inside and outside the venue. Expect to spend $25-30 per day on food and $60 or more if you plan on having beer. Water costs $2 a bottle. Budget at least $20 per day for it. And don't eat the Chinese Food after dancing for 2 hours straight to a Sasha & Digweed set. It just won't end well.

Consider Hydration and Sun Protection

Expect the high temperatures to range from 90-100 degrees and the lows to be no chillier than 65. It's imperative that you drink water constantly, especially with all that dancing and head-bopping you're bound to do. There are shady areas inside the festival grounds-- tents, some with those air-misting things-- but there aren't many. Slather yourself in at least SPF 30 and reapply at least twice during the day.

Consider Pacing Yourself

Coachella is not for the faint of heart. It's hot, it's dry, it's expensive, but the lineups always make it worth it. And this year, it's expanded to three days. Two were hard enough for me back in '02 and '04. Remember the intense environment when making decisions and remember to pace yourself. There's no shame in taking a half-hour between sets to chill out in the shade-- especially after sweating your ass off inside one of the tents.

Enjoy your Coachella, peeps. I hope to join you this year.

The Dude of Life - Where Is He Now?


The Dude of Life is an interesting footnote in Phishtory. The last time I saw him was at the Nassau Colesium show in 2003. The Dude of Life took the stage and performed Crimes of the Mind with the boys. Ever wonder what happened to the guy (a.k.a. Steve Pollack)?

Check out this article called The Dude of Life by Becca Tucker, which appeared in the NY Press. You'll find out some interesting bits about The Dude of Life, like how he's a suburban dad who commutes to the Bronx to teach public school.

Here's a bit:
"The way I would consider it is, Phish was famous, and I got a taste of that fame," Steve tells me over coffee in a suburban strip mall on the day we meet, a weekday evening after class was dismissed. "It was great. It definitely could be addictive."

Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend (2008)


Those heading to Coachella and Bonnaroo can get a taste of Vampire Weekend, now confirmed for both fests. They're also doing a pretty nice little tour right now. So, god damn, I listened to this album 4 and a half times in one day. That's absurd. I'm not the type to go overboard on anything. Now granted, it's just February, but this is the best album I've heard all year. Hold up, it may be the only album from 2008 that I've heard. Not to worry, hailing from NYC, they may be the world's first indierock world music band... durr... or may be not. I heard about these guys a few months ago on some NPR: All Things Considered broadcast - may be it was the informal broadcast where some musicians and critics sat around talking about 2007 music - I liked the snippet I heard then and the album does not disappoint.

Anyhow, I'm always skeptical of NYC bands - I suppose I preordain some level of pretentiousness upon them - too cool for school you know. These guys are cool, but they blend some nice African style rhythm guitar work with some subtle psychedelic pop - then just some straight up pop - it works really well on a few levels. Those who have trouble sharing a dance floor with young sorority girls may be in trouble.

The album is not 100% rock solid - I'll give it a B+, which is high - they may have rushed it a bit to get it out there, but it's still really fucking good.

Here is the link to d/l the album from an over-the-top musicblog (sink-hole.blogspot.com) filled with more d/l's than you could swing a stick at. They're also coming to a town near you - go check them out if you "stole" their music like I did.

"Phishistory" Downloads from jellyfish419

I found this today on PhantasyTour and thought everyone should know it is around... from jellyfish419
"First and foremost this is for ipod's. it is all m4a. for those of you who were around about a year and a half ago when i put this out the first time, this collection is very similar, except i've added some tunes here and there. also, instead of having 3 massive megaupload files, i've broken it down into pieces all under 100 mb so i could use mediafire and you can download more than one at a time. enjoy!"

Metallica and Pearl Jam at Bonnaroo; 2008 Lineup Released


The Joker rocking out during Bonnaroo 2006

I caught this over at Stereogum about the 2008 Bonnaroo Lineup. Yeah, Bonnaroo's line up has been announced. Metallica and Pearl Jam will be headlining. Phil Lesh & Friends, My Morning Jacket, and Jack Johnson will also be in the mix this year and among the big attractions. And the usual suspects like Umphrey's and Yonder are playing sets. Other acts of note include... Robert Randolph, Ozomatli, Dark Star Orchestra, O.A.R. and the Allman Brothers Band.

Hmmm.... no Trey.

It's a little for everyone. Like old schoolers... Willie Nelson and Robert Plant (with Allison Krause) will be there. Levon Helms from The Band is making an appearance. And there's the indie bands like Rilo Kiley and you know a ton of emokids will be showing up for the Death Cab set. Little Feat and Aimee Mann were buried at the bottom of the list. Check it out...
