Stream Phish: Red Rocks

I am one of the many people who lost out on the Phish Red Rocks sweepstakes. Living vicariously through the Coventry crew and others via twitter, I've sifted through countless photos, videos and feeds over the last three days. These are the best bets to make your sunday a phunday, even if it's via live stream.

Hoodstream seems to have a good set up, linking up 4-5 individual video streams live from red rocks. Keep in mind the multiple stream sources will slow everything down, forcing you to choose. Pick the best and go directly to that site.

Jamtopia had a fast stream last night. The on-screen chats are annoying, so click the "talking bubble" icon on the bottom right-hand corner of the video screen to hide it. I used this feed exclusively 8-1-09.

Finally, keep in mind that most of these streams have less than great visual quality, but damn good audio. The combo leaves something to desire, but hearing the band live is way better than reading setlists in silence/I-pod shuffle. Hope everyone at redrocks has a great Sunday show experience.
