Talk about busting a nut. The night before NYE has historically been the big rager of holiday runs of Phishmas past. But hell...12/30 shows have always been a nutbuster (or "nuddt-bustahhh" as Providence friends say). And 12/30/17 lived up to the numerical hype... Mike's > Hydrogen > Weekapaug kicked off the festivities. H2 was one of a trio of MSG debuts not played at Baker's Dozen... Rare first-set Tweezer batted in the cleanup spot and clocked in at a bong-rattling 19 minutes. "Holy apetits Batman! 19-min Tweezahh?"... Fishman hijinks with Ass Handed... Smooth GIN packed in oodles of flavor into the 15-min blissful burrito... Brother bustout and second debut not played at BD... More setcloser and the tour wife @change100 caught me muttering to myself, "Talking to things not there again? What did the aliens tell you this time?"... Roamed hallways at setbreak. Found Javier and met up with old NYC friends G & G  (both lawyers on Long Island... always good to have Jewish attorneys on speed dial). G brought his wife OJ to her first-ever Phish show. "He's been going to see Phish for 20 years and I never went until now. I wish I went sooner. Phish is so much fun. It's amazing to see so many people without inhibitions and having a good time. I totally needed this."... Yup, truth from the insightful eyes of first-timer... DWD blasted off set 2. Phish harpooned the 28-min bloated space whale of a jam with a special spear-like weapon powered by pyramid crystals. Wildo pointed out "26 min DWD with 2 mins of WOOs!"... Steam got weird quickly and I got lost twice. I asked the wifey the fucking score during Steam at least twice... Light jam got cooking before Trey ripcord for Farmhouse... I told the guy next to me that "When I heard Farmhouse for the first time ever at MSG in 1997, I thought it was an obscure Bob Marley cover." And few mins later, he elbowed me with glee, "There's your Marley... BRAH!" during the No Woman No Cry teases... Sloppy, but ripping nonetheless Antelope slammed the door on the 5-song set. First two nights featured 6-song second sets... Sleeping Monkey > Tweeprise encore. Monkey was the third MSG debut not played at BD. I suspected a Loving Cup>Tweeprise double-dip, but the boys have been avoiding covers this holiday run.... 3 down and 1 more to go... Get ready for NYE.

Having droid trouble, is it just me?

MC said...

It's saved as a .rar file. Can't import into iTunes. Can any Jedi's convert for us computer noobs, pleeeazer?

FYI, these droidz are the high quality FLAC files, not mp3s. Even better, if maybe a little more difficult to convert. I use All2mp3 on mac. Thanks for the upload!

I'm converting them from flac to mp3 right now for folks. Gimme 5 mins.
