Phish with 2 Jammy Nods

Trey and Mike during Y.E.M. at IT.

Phish was nominated for two Jammy awards for Tour of the Year (Summer 2004) and DVD of the Year (PHISH IT). Mike Gordon received a nod for Best Download of the Year (12/31/04 with Benevento/Russo Duo in NYC).

Chong's Marijuana-logues = Up in Smoke. Here's a bit:
"The Marijuana-Logues" has canceled its spring tour after its star, Tommy Chong, was barred from performing in it because audience members were frequently lighting up during the show.

New Live Phish Downloads

I discovered that Phish has released a two new shows from 1994 to it's Live Phish site. Here's what it said:
This release features two shows from the experimental 1994 fall tour and continues a rich legacy of download and physical releases from the archives. Hold on tight! Phish's back-to-back performances on November 30th, 1994 at Evergreen College in Olympia, WA and December 1st, 1994 at the Salem Armory in Salem, OR are perfect examples of the band's ability to weave their sets of diverse styles of music into cohesive extended journeys. These shows display that talent at its peak, with dynamic sets that showcase Phish's ability to link one song to the next while stretching limits to create a non-stop tapestry of exploration. An added bonus is filler from November 12th, 1994 at Kent State University featuring a transcendent Down With Disease and other gems.

Seriously, the two shows look great. Michelle, a friend of mine in Seattle, went to Evergreen and she gave me a bootleg tape of the 11.30.94 show! And I'm going to download the Salem Armory show (Peaches, Mound, Tweezer to open the second set) as soon as I can.
