FYI
Phish just announced superballix.com/
at the same site as the 1973 Summer jam.
should be a very unique and musical weekend.

I dont think thats a good idea. Every wook in the known universe would converge on the lot and a public health crisis the likes of which havent been seen in decades would ensue. I'm 38 and I never got the Phish thing. Good players, but they have no songs. Sounds like a college dorm band that won the lottery.

the deadheads in lot would make a LOT of money and the Phish fans would see the best shows of their lives bc they would see Furthur, so I can SEE how it sounds compelling.... but I wouldn't go bc Furthur already sometimes brings a crowd that is often less than savory (drunk yuppies and their spoiled children really like to ruin shows by shoving thru, shouting lyrics off key, and just generally trying to enjoy themselves at the expense of every other person in the room- instead of just dancing & swirling in a specific area one has been at ALL NIGHT or respectfully dancing thru the crowd and continuing to move, and watching, listening and singing lyrics at a normal volume when it just can't help but burst thru) and there isn't space here to write how awful Phish crowds are... so yeah, good luck, but count me out

I would rather see Furthur and the Rhythm Devils with Keller Williams at Red Rocks for 5 nights.

Possibly at a festival. But can Furthur draw 90,000 like is projected for Superball? I would have to say Phish would headline in that fantasy double-bill.
The thing I always get kind of sad about is that we never got to hear Jerry and Trey play together.

So is Furthur going to be at the Watkins glen fest??? Cause if they are I am ALL IN!! i have never been to a phish show...I have never given them the time of day.. I am NOT A HATER though and I am open to Good music!! So i am sure that with a little friend named Alice D. by your side, Phish would be a good show Regardless...I Love the Grateful dead and I dont hate Phish. I just never listened to em. Would i be that disappointed????

^ Phish is good stuff. Certainly worth checking out. I always recommend to a Deadhead who's looking to listen to Phish for the first time to listen to the IT Festival. Lot of great jamming, and there are several times they sound pretty similar to something they Dead might be playing.

But no, Furthur will not be there. Watgins Glen is Phish's ninth Phish-only festival.

If Phish is expecting 90k for SuperBall at $200 per, they are mistaken. Now maybe if there are 40k in Volunteers and Comps.

I think they could do a couple of stadium gigs together on a weekend. Let Furthur Close Sat and Phish Sunday. I bet two nights of Citi Field, or New Meadowlands could do very very well.

Dear BlueLightRain,


I agree that it would not be a good idea. Can I ask a favor though? Can we stop calling people "Wooks"? I am embarrassed for us when I see that term bantered about regarding our brothers and sisters...its stereotypical and dehumanizing. Stereotypes are boundary-building and restrictive, and don't take us furthur.

Peace, your friend Paige
