On the Road Tao Pauly Videos: Phish in 2009 and 2010


It didn't really hit me until the other day when I realized, "Tour starts in a week!" To celebrate the oncoming summer tour, I want to share a couple of videos I shot. The first batch are travel videos I spliced together that include being on the road during the earliest days of Phish 3.0. The second batch are montages from Festival 8 Halloween 2009, MSG 2009, Miami NYE 2009, Halloween A.C. 2010, and Hampton 2009.

At the end of every year, I posted a video with highlights from the places I traveled through both work and fun. 2009 was a special year because Phish reunited and returned to the stage, thus 3.0 was born. The reunion shows and 2009 summer and fall tour are briefly documented in these short year-end videos... and I mean snippets of a few seconds here and there from the actual show or partying it up in the lot. FYI... You'll also see other music festivals/shows sprinkled throughout the travel footage (along with random work stuff when I was a reporter covering the World Series of Poker in Vegas and the Latin American Poker Tour, oh and the time I covered the porn convention and AVN awards in Vegas).

Highlights from On the Road 2009, Part 1... Hampton comeback shows, Camden NJ, Bonnaroo, Red Rocks Colorado, and The Gorge...


Highlights from On the Road 2009m Part 2... Festival 8, Albany, and in front MSG...



Highlights from On the Road 2010...Vegas porn convention, Raleigh lot wook patrol, Alpharetta lot, and Atlantic City Halloween...

Okay you kindly sat through my travel vids, so here's a special bonus... expanded vids which are all 100% Phishy-related content and shot by yours truly from either inside the show or partying in the lot. And we're talking early 3.0 stuff circa 2009-10.

Here's Festival 8 footage including the parrot on molly, the weird balloon thing, acoustic set, issuing wook tickets, alien having sex with an unicorn...



Here's the Joker at Festival 8 dressed as UPS man delivering packages to spun-out chicks...


If you ever wondered what it like to sit behind the stage at MSG? Here ya go 2009 MSG...


2009 ended with a Phish blowout in Miami (we randomly had seats behind the stage on NYE which worked out for the gag)...


And some Boardwalk hijinks with Phish Halloween 2010 montage (I love the crew who brought an entire raft inside the show!)...


And here's the comeback video that always gives me goosebumps: the Hampton 2009 montage...
