Phish Festival 2009

"It wasn't until concertgoers arrived at the gates that they finally learned what classic album Phish would cover in its entirety during their "musical costume" set at Festival 8. Reviving a tradition that began in 1994 when Phish covered The Beatles' The White Album, last night the quartet staged an ambitious cover of the Rolling Stones' 18-song double LP, Exile on Main St. As in years past, the costume choice was a closely-guarded secret until the day of the show, when thousands of "Phishbill" programs (à la Playbill) were distributed, complete with bios of the "cast," which included Sharon Jones on vocals and members of the Dap Kings on horns." [LAist]
Phish fans (see above) decscended on the Coachella Music Festival site for three days over Halloween weekend. Lots of pictures, and all tour dates (including a just-announced four-night New Years Eve run in Miami, below...

sharon jones is at starland the night after phish does msg...maybe they saved a little something for the east coast.

The entire weekend was pure joy that I will never forget and that I will continue to share with others. The experience has made me a better person. I feel like a kid again. Happy all the time :)

God i hate all these pics of people enjoying music, who the fuck do these people think they are?!?!!?!?

Posted by Anonymous | November 10, 2009 4:32 PM

Exile was a good choice. Very tight and well rehearsed, Sharon Jones and the horns added a lot. Easy to find a download of the set, well worth a listen. Highlights include Torn & Frayed, Lovin Cup, Ventilator Blues>I just want to see his face, and Let it Loose.

Posted by Anonymous | November 10, 2009 4:41 PM

There was a person from a previous post who called phish fans "faggots". It made me sick that someone would speak/type that. Its nice to see some friendly comments here. Im looking forward to MSG.

The best part was they streamed the shows online for all the fans who could not make it out west. It was a nice way for the band to think of their fans.

Does anyone have the promotional code for the Sharon Jones gig? It's buy one, get one?

Isn't it child abuse to bring a kid to a Phish gig?

Looks like a great time....can you imagine what the pics (and the vibe) would be like if it ever rained in Indio? Even for five minutes?

Anyone else read that article and notice the final lines?

"Regardless of whether Gordon has to face a judge next month, law-enforcement sources say unofficial justice was already delivered. The Hell's Angels, who detained Gordon for police, were not, the sources say, gentle with sensitive areas of the rock star's body. " !

Posted by Anonymous | November 10, 2009 7:21 PM

^^ couldn't he tell the hell's angels that he was the bass player from phish? that might have saved his balls. i always wondered why his voice was high pitched recently.

Posted by Anonymous | November 10, 2009 8:50 PM

wow, isnt it really difficult to learn an entire album like that?

Phish is a great band, glad to see them back touring again.

the girl he was taking art photos was the daughter of a hell's angel.

phish are pretty fucking talented, even though 98% of this site would never admit that.

Posted by Anonymous | November 11, 2009 1:46 AM

haha idiots. he was not a pedophile. it was douchebag hell's angel that overreacted and then retracted his statement. but it's cool that you got half the story right.

i think they decided not to press charges because he couldve sued for kicking his ass and they paid them off, smells like a cover up. wtf was he doing with her anyway?

taking the little kid away from her crackhead hell's angels parents for a ride on a segway. the whole situation was exaggerated.

Nice pictures. Such a fun festival. Probablly the most well done one Ive been to, so much beautiful things to look at. Such a great job whoever was behind setting the place up. No traffic coming in? that was a first!!!

Anyways, halfway down you see the pic of the two guys in glowman outfits, IM the one on the left in Blue. LED Glowman outfit, that was me. So much fun.

Posted by Joshua "Glowman" | November 11, 2009 3:15 PM

uhh@955 ur just a sorry hater. This has been soooooo spat at by u hipster dbags. guys was takin some photos of an Angels kid in a wharhouse. u bean pole faggots should b able to appricate that,,,, rusted old empty building, splinttered sunlight, etc. artsy BS. and yeah some hells angels may have overreacted, but it not like they have ever done that before (see altamont). climb out of our ten to an apt/ moms basement and go find a new knock on Phish.

Posted by Anonymous | November 11, 2009 4:17 PM

So what was he doing with a girl that young at all?? Thats young and he didnt know their family or Hells Angel dad to get consent if it was just a photo? Also they put on this happy go lucky attitude with being all natural but the guitar player has had a major problem with pain pills which is fine people have their problems.. it just sort ruins the facade of just "natural drugs man".
Carry on dirty scrawny hippie whos no better than a shitty tight pant hipster with a sad beard. Im sure you can relate "wharhouse" boy.

Gotta toddler strapped to your chest..and a cup holder, a model T, and toddlers with beer.

the musics great so im overlooking the pedophile thing. you guys are assholes, this was a bullshit trumped up charge. its totally plausible he was just taking cool photos of 9 year old girl he didnt know, makes total sense. it was all misunderstanding promise! i cant wait to see them again by the way

Posted by typical phish fan | November 12, 2009 4:26 PM

Sure its very possible that it was a innocent artistic photo. He just should have been smarter and not wandered to some secluded location.

Posted by Anonymous | November 12, 2009 5:50 PM

seriously, if you are writing here to hate on something that happened when you were 15, you really need to evaluate what you are doing with your lives.

and fyi - there was no 'secluded location' or warehouse. if you've ever been to jones beach, there is a building next to where the buses park.. about 3 1/2 feet from the seats. that's where they were standing when the kid's mother freaked out. meth is a bad thing.

brooklynvegan - great photos of a fantastic weekend. thanks for branching out to something beyond your normal spectrum.
